Kanye: Obama Lacks Jewish Support

Just when his weird motorcycle video had us sort of liking him, Kanye West opens his mouth again. In a radio interview found and posted by Israeli newspaper Haaretz, West tells 105.1 FM DJs that Obama shouldn't be criticized for his presidency's perceived deficiencies because he isn't as well connected as people like former president George Bush, or Jews (all of them, apparently). "People want to say Obama can't make these moves or he's not executing. That's because he ain't got those connections," the "Yeezus" rapper said. "Black people don't have the same level of connections as Jewish people. Black people don't have the same connection as oil people. You know we don't know nobody that got a nice house."
