Obama’s Kanye West “Jackass” Remark Audio Leaked But Apology Beer Unlikely

September 16, 2009

(ChattahBox) — As we mentioned yesterday President Obama got dragged into the Kanye West MTV award buffoonery while giving an interview to CNBC. An overeager ABC reporter Terry Moran, said he overheard the president call¬† West a “jackass” for his actions and immediately Twittered the comment to a million or so folks Tweeting:

“Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a ‘jackass’ for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT’S presidential.”

The president was actually overheard in casual banter before the real interview was underway, which is generally regarded as “off-the-record.” But these days being president there are few opportunities to just speak casually. After the word “jackass” jumped out of his mouth, Obama quickly tried to pull it back saying, “Nooo. Nooo. I’m assuming all of this, but too late. TMZ got a hold of the audio, below.¬† UsWeekly says Kanye West personally called Taylor Swift and said he was very sorry. Taylor said his apology was sincere and she accepted it. So it looks like there will be no need for Obama, to meet with Kanye and Taylor to talk this all out over a beer.

    It seems to me that if Joe Wilson had to apologize for his critism of the President, which many feel was fitting and was not a personal attack, then the President should apologize for his comments which may have been fitting but were certainly a personal attack. Don’t you think?
