President Obama exercising his freedom of speech and commenting on Kanye West’s rude interruption at the VMA Awards by making an off-the record remark referring to Kanye as a “jackass”.  Way to go Kanye…even the President is pissed off at you!  Listen to the audio recording obtained by TMZ below:


TMZ has obtained the audiotape of President Barack Obama calling Kanye West a “jackass” for hijacking Taylor Swift‘s acceptance speech during the VMAs.

The audio was recorded just before Obama went on camera to do an interview with CNBC. Before the interview began, Obama — referring to Kanye’s antics on stage — said “I thought that was really inappropriate,” then adding, “He’s a jackass.”

After making the remarks, Obama said “Where’s the pool?” Presumably, he was worried the joke would go wide. He noted the last time that happened, he got burned for killing a fly.

Obama said, “Cut the President some slack.”
