West Dubbed a Jackass by Obama: Now THAT'S Presidential!

America certainly thinks of Kanye West as a jackass after the Video Music Awards last Sunday, and the leader of the country agrees.

Very well known and popular rapper/singer, Kanye West, devastated Taylor Swift, only 19 years old, after winning her first VMA for "Best Female Music Video." It was the moment of a lifetime and she couldn't be more thrilled. As she walked up on stage Swift was enthralled, but halfway through her speech West decided to steal the spotlight.

Kanye marched up on stage and snatched the microphone from Taylor to interject the Beyonce should have won "Best Female Video," which we think is very ironic because she actually won "Best Overall Video." Taylor Swift and all of America were speechless, Beyonce didn't even know what to make of it.

Myspace, Twitter, and Facebook lit up with crude comments aimed towards Kanye, but the most shocking would have to be the words that came directly from President Obama's mouth, stating on national television that Kanye West is a "Jackass."

We all knew Kanye was a little crazy from the beginning but it appears now he is completely out of his mind, and very "Heartless." Obama thought this was absolutely disrespectful but the comment he made was supposed to be off-the-record.

A jealous ABC station reporter tried to regain the attention after the interview with CNBC by posting a tweet saying, "Pres ... Obama just called Kanye West a 'jackass' for his outburst at VMA's when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT'S presidential." ABC was not happy to hear about this tweet posted by Terry Moran and issued an apology for commenting on an off-the-record interview.

Hopefully this encounter will help him become more level-headed and "Stronger," but with such a huge "Ego," that may never happen. Kanye might may not think so, but we all know that he does not "Run This Town."i appreciate it man
