Kanye West has had a rather interesting “relationship” with President Obama, and the rapper originally made it clear he wasn’t a fan of the Commander-in-Chief because Obama called him a jacka*s for the Taylor Swift incident.
Weeks ago Kim posted a photo of her, Kanye and Obama at a fundraiser (the couple made a hefty donation and was rewarded with a signed photo), and it appeared that they dropped their feud with Obama.
But Kanye had folks scratching their heads a couple of weeks ago when he said he’s so cool with the President that Obama calls him on his house phone.
Kanye told Oxford University:
“I understand that I’m a servant. And with my voice, with my ability to build relationships with amazing people, speak to amazing people. Call Elon Musk out of the blue or call Obama out of the blue … he calls the home phone, by the way.”
Interestingly enough, Obama shut that down during his recent appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” When asked if he has Kanye’s home number, Obama says:
“I love his music but I don’t think I have his home number. I don’t.”
The President also says he only met Kanye twice. Once as a senator, and once as the President.
