    Obama calls Kanye West a jackass


    President Barack Obama has labelled rap star Kanye West a "jackass" for interrupting Taylor Swift's winning speech at the MTV Awards on Sunday.

    West stormed the stage in New York to tell the crowd Beyonce should have won the prize for best female video.

    Since then, he has called Swift personally to apologise.

    Speaking before a TV interview, Mr Obama said: "I thought it was inappropriate, it's like she's getting an award, why are you butting in?"

    He added: "The young lady seems like a perfectly nice person, she's getting her award, what's he doing up there?"

    Chatting with CNBC reporter John Harwood, Mr Obama made an off-the-cuff remark: "He's a jackass."

    The comments came to light after ABC News staff mentioned them on Twitter.

    The network said some of its employees had overheard a conversation between the president and Mr Harwood and did not realise it was off the record.

    The network apologised to the White House and CNBC and removed the Twitter posts.

    An audio recording of the remarks was later posted on showbiz website TMZ.

    Since the incident at the MTV Awards, West has admitted he was in the wrong and has said sorry.

    Swift told ABC News Radio that the rapper called her after the ceremony. "He was very sincere in his apology and I accepted that apology," she said.

    But she told the US chat show The View, that his behaviour had "rattled" her.

    "I had to perform live five minutes later, so I had to get myself back to the place where I could perform."

    West, who was booed every time he appeared on stage after the incident, also wrote on his blog afterwards about how sorry he was to have ruined Swift's big moment.

          I agree that Kenye is a jackass but one thing that does bother me is that the president keeps making comments on people in the news. He made a personal comment on the cops who arrested his friend and now on the VMA. I just think that the president needs to watch was he says due to his position.

          I heard a Senator from Georgia was angry at the guy who called the President a liar and the Senator made a reference to the KKK because of that incident. Why does disagreeing with the President have to be a racial issue. Sorry if I hijacked the thread.

            Doesn't the president have more important things to worry about than a stupid award show?

              Obama calling him a Jackass would be considered a professional opinion.

                        He was just chatting it up before an actual interview, and he was asked if his daughters were as annoyed as the reporter's daughter at the Kanye West, Taylor Swift thing. The guy still has a life, the whole "incident" was about 20 seconds long, and it doesn't take that much time out of his life to see it and form the opinion that Kanye West is a jackass.
