Looks like President BARACK OBAMA forgives but never forgets, because star news reveals that he called KANYE WEST a “jackass” once again, after calling him such after the singer pulled his infamous and rude VMA stunt.

President Barack Obama sure thinks that Kanye West is talented and smart, but he still thinks he’s a “jackass” for rudely grabbing the mic from Taylor Swift‘s hands as she was giving her acceptance speech at the MTV  Video Music Awards three years ago.

And get this, while Kim Kardashian’s new rich boyfriend had been vocal about his preference towards Beyonce‘s music video over Swift‘s award winning one in 2009, the President reveals that he prefers Jay-Z‘s music over Kanye‘s. Now that’s what you call a presidential burn moment!

Obama told The Atlantic:

“Although I like Kanye. He’s a Chicago guy. Smart. He’s very talented.”

His interviewer, David Samuels, followed up with a question:

“Even though he’s a jackass?”

The president replied, with a wink following it:

“He is a jackass. But he’s talented.”

Even though Kanye has apologized twice, does that mean he’s still a jackass?
