It was reported that President Obama called Kanye West as “jack*ss,” during the off-the-record time while interview with CNBC.
Perhaps the US president was giving his opinion over the VMA incident where West told Swift that Beyonce had a better music video as the incident was indicated on a tweet made by a news anchor, but this tweet orced the network to issue an apology after creating an Internet abuzz.
The ABC spokesperson revealed that their employee prematurely tweeted a portion of President Obama’s off-the-record portion of the interview. They admitted that it was wrong and issued an apology to the White House and CNBC. The White House did not make any comment about the issue.
