President Barack Obama insists that rapper Kanye West is a "jackass."

In an interview published in The Atlantic today, Obama was asked whether he prefers Jay-Z or Kanye West.

"Jay-Z," he answered smiling. "Although I like Kanye," Obama continued. "He's a Chicago guy. Smart. He's very talented."

"Even though you called him a jackass?" the reporter asked.

"He is a jackass" Obama said.

In 2009, Obama first called Kanye West a "jackass" during an interview on CNBC, after the rapper interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Music Awards.
