Big uproar in Washington, D.C., today.
Kanye West a man who is apparently famous for something that I missed in my cultural education took the microphone from Taylor Swift a woman who (I actually know this!) is famous for singing when she was being given the “Best Female Video” Award at the MTV Video Music Awards probably better known as the Skanky Parade to announce that Beyonce also known (two out of three!) for singing had a better video than Taylor. Classy!
The Beltway connection? Referring to the incident, President Obama called West a “jackass.” Terry Moran an ABC news reporter tweeted what Obama said. ABC apologized for reporting ” ?before our editorial process had been completed.”
This critical issue in American brings up a few pressing questions:
- Assuming the president is only speaking out because he actually watched the award show which is obviously a stretch given his willingness to denigrate police officers over issues he has no information about why the heck does our president have time to watch something as base and meaningless as the MTV awards? I don’t. And I’m not even running the free world (into bankruptcy) yet. More to the point, why does he want to?
- What is inaccurate about what Obama said?
