Obama: Kanye A 'Jackass'
President Barack Obama called Kanye West a "jackass" today during an off-the-record exchange while he was being interviewed by ABC.
Nightline co-anchor Terry Moran, who has over one million followers on Twitter, tweeted Obama's comment calling Kanye a "jackass," then quickly deleted it.
His tweet read: "Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a "jackass" for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT'S presidential."
ABC has already issued an official apology, published by Politico, for the breach of journalistic conduct.
Obama called Kanye West a "jackass" for his behavior at last night's MTV VMA (Video Music Awards) ceremony, where he snatched the microphone from a bewildered Taylor Swift as she began to accept an award for Best Video.
But some, including GroundReport have alleged that the Kanye West Taylor Swift incident was a prank.
