President Obama in an off-air interview called Kanye West a Jackass due to his actions at the 2009 VMA'. He also stated that Taylor Swift seems like a nice person. Is Kanye losing it? He really does need some alone time! Or time out.

I don't agree with what Kanye West did. I think he showed poor taste and no class for what he did. He stunned many people with the stunt he pulled, but you know I think it was poor taste too for what Obama said. He is supposted to be a person of position and these are petty issues and for him to get any kind of personal involvement into them just seems like he's a headliner catcher as much as any kind of loon out there looking for press.

Thank you for making that more clear. I didn't know that. I think the press should keep those kinds of comments out of the news. No doubt Kanye did wrong, that was disrespectful, but I don't agree with comments like that being public when it comes to Obama. Just my opinion.

Anyone can say anything they want. What kanye west did wasn't so bad. He has right to freedom of speech and he used it. So did president Obama. He is just a regular person like everybody else and he jus ssid what he feels. He called him a bad name and thats cool because he is a normal person with his opnions.

What he did was very wrong indeed. Everyone had there chance to vote, and if people decided that it was Taylor's video, which I also think is awesome, then she does deserve the award. Even though Kayne West has now apologized, Actions do speak louder than words, and this will be something that will always be remembered.
