You know you’ve fuc*ed up when the president is calling you a “Jackass.”
Reports are circulating that in an unguarded moment, ABC News reporter Terry Moran overheard Obama call Kanye West a “Jackass.” What’s a hard-nosed reporter to do? Post the gossip on Twitter, of course – where it has spread like wildfire. Due to the calamity, the comment has since disappeared – and ABC News have released this statement:
“In the process of reporting on remarks by President Obama that were made during a CNBC interview, ABC News employees prematurely tweeted a portion of those remarks that turned out to be from an off-the-record portion of the interview. This was done before our editorial process had been completed. That was wrong. We apologize to the White House and CNBC and are taking steps to ensure that it will not happen again.“
Basically, that means Obama said it! Which is totally cool. Let’s be thankful that we finally have a president who knows who Kanye West is.
