Kanye West has run afoul of a couple U.S. presidents in his day. First, he famously declared during a 2005 telethon in support of Hurricane Katrina victims that the sitting U.S. president George Bush “did not care about black people.” A few years later after an incident where he brusquely interrupted country-pop singer Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the VMAs, President Obama declared Yeezy a “jackass.”
In recent interviews, Kanye West has been firing back at the President for his comments and that trend continued today during an appearance on The Russ Parr Morning Show on 93.9 FM in Washington, D.C. West had some critical words for President Obama addressing the President’s anti-Kanye comments from several years ago.
“He’s just trying to be cool in front of a room full of people that would be judging him, also,” Kanye said in regards to the President’s comments.
Despite the apparent shade thrown by Kanye in the President’s direction, Kanye clarified that he did not consider President Obama an enemy of his.
“Man, I ain’t got no problem with nobody.” Kanye said. “We aren’t each other’s enemies. Period.”
During the interview, Kanye would also talk about how his life has changed as a father and who are the people that impresses him. You can watch video of ‘Ye’s appearance on the Russ Par Morning Show in the clip above.
