President Barack Obama is great when it comes to his knowledge and take on Hollywood and pop culture.
Take for instance when he said that he knew that Lindsay Lohan was in trouble was in jail, he didn't know who Snooki was and now this.
President Obama calls Kanye West "a jackass," of course then admits that he likes his music.
This wasn't the first time the President has called the rapper a jackass - in September of 2009 when Kanye jumped on stage during the MTV Video Music Awards and stole the spotlight from Taylor Swift, Obama let it be known.
In an interview with The Atlantic:
"Although I like Kanye," Obama says in the chat. "He's a Chicago guy. Smart. He's very talented."
When reminded of that 2009 incident, "He is a jackass. . . But he's talented."
The full quote from 2009 with CNBC:
"The young lady seems like a perfectly nice person," Obama complained. "She's getting her award. What's he doing up there? He's a jackass."
