President Obama Leaves Jay-Z And Beyonce Hanging With His Rep Calling Them Liars (Video)

April 12. 2013

U.S. President Barack Obama, via his press secretary, Jay Carney, slammed rapper Jay-Z for stating he and his wife, Beyonce, were given special White House permission to criminally violate the U.S. embargo in going to Cuba. Millions of Cuban-Americans in America are angry over the couple visiting Cuba for their anniversary. Members of the U.S. Congress denounced it. Obama did yesterday as well.

Carney slammed Jay-Z's new song "Open Letter" in which the rapper states of the trip, "Obama said 'chill, you gonna get me impeached'. But you don't need this s**t anyway. Chill with me on the beach" and "Boy from the hood but got White House clearance."

Jay-Z also rapped, "Politicians never did sh*t for me. Except lie to me, distort history. Wanna give me jail time and a fine. Fine, let me commit a real crime. I might buy a kilo for Chief Keef. Out of spite, I just might flood these streets" threatening to flood the streets of America with cocaine. Jay-Z's career was started with ill-gotten money he made from selling crack-cocaine. Rather than repent of those ways and denounce them, which would be the right thing to do, Jay-Z continues to glorify said negativity. 

What the Judiciary Report finds astonishing is that Jay-Z would invoke the name of the President of the United States in such a matter and in such a profane, distasteful song. The site has stated for the past few years that Jay-Z and Beyonce are a liability to Obama. They've just proven the site correct. 

Barack Obama

My family is very involved in politics in my homeland of Jamaica (since before I was born). I grew up in that environment, where my dad is friends with prime ministers and lawmakers. For years I've contemplated getting into politics when I'm older, as I believe it is a vehicle for genuine change. So I've truly been baffled as to why Obama would align himself with Jay-Z and have stated for years it would cause him problems. With so many accomplished, standout figures such as Dr. Benjamin Carson and scientist Adrian Gibbs, why choose Jay-Z. 


Carney On Jay-Z's Explicit Song About Cuba Trip: "The White House Has Nothing To Do With It"

DONOVAN SLACK, POLITICO: I just want to return to Beyonce and Jay-Z. Jay-Z released a rap today, I know the other day you said that Treasury was the one that cleared their trip, he suggested that he got White House permission Ė that he personally spoke with the president. Iíll just quote: "I turned Havana into Atlanta. Boy from the hood, I got White House Clearance. Obama said chill you gonna get me impeached. You donít need this expletive anyway, chill with me on the beach."

JAY CARNEY: I guess nothing rhymes with Treasury, because Treasury offers and gives licenses for travel, as you know, and the White House has nothing to do with it.

SLACK: So are you saying that he did not, the president, did not have a conversation with Jay-Z?

JAY CARNEY: I am absolutely saying that the White House, from the president on down, had nothing to do with anybody's personal -- anybody's travel to Cuba. That is something that Treasury handles.

Ö it's a song, Donovan. The president did not communicate with Jay-Z over this trip.
