First there was Terry Moran’s Twitter. Yesterday, TMZ brought us audio. And here, for your masturbation purposes, is videographic footage of Barack Obama calling ex-college student Kanye West a “jackass” for what he did during that “perfectly nice woman”‘s music video award speech, on teevee. Ben Smith found this clip first and posted it, but then, OH WHAT HAPPENED HERE hmm?: “UPDATE: Not so much: Wiser heads than mine at POLITICO made the call to take down the video of the ‘jackass’ moment. Sorry about the tease if you missed it.” Fortunately CNN’s Rick Sanchez stole it just in time! So… when do we get to see a video of Obama calling Jim VandeHei and John Harris “kiss-asses”?

  1. At least we don’t have to go through a month’s worth of footage and anal-Isis of what Obama thought about the S1Ws and Professor Griff’s anti-semitic comment back in 1991.

  2. Ha! He says “jackass” like I say “jackass”. I like the guy a little more today. No wonder his approvals are up.

    Seriously, Kanye West = Jackass. For sooooo many reasons.

  3. Has Glen Beck issued a 20 minute rant which proves that the word “jackass” was originally used by Nelson Rockefeller, Teddy Roosevelt and the Fascist to overthrow the American People so that Kenyans could rule us? ‘Cause if not, I don’t know what to think about this.

  4. I like that the national press immediately assumes the BlackAfrican Presleydent has an opinion on what every single other BlackAfrican person has done or said in the last 24 hours.

  5. All this is happening endlessly because some guy took a microphone away from Taylor Swift. What’s going to happen when Taylor Swift gets all bad girl and goes out with Chris Brown and he goes all Chris Brown on her? Will Obama declare a state of emergency and round up everyone and send us to FEMA camps for a time out?

  6. I love his tone of voice… he is correct too. He seems ultra-cool & calm all of the time, and hearing him say that just makes him seem all the more real, more human.
