Obama's Semitic shortcomings: Kanye West ain't saying he's a gold-digger, but his President lacks "Jewish connections"
International rapper Kanye West appeared on yet another radio show on Tuesday where he talked politics, and specifically about the financial difficulties facing U.S. President Obama.
At New York City's Power 105 show The Breakfast Club, West blamed U.S. President Barack Obama's failures on the fact that “Black people don't have the same level of connections as Jewish people.”
"Man, let me tell you something about George Bush and oil money and Obama and no money. People want to say Obama can't make these moves or he's not executing. That's because he ain't got those connections. 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. You know we don’t know nobody with paper like that we can go to when we down. You know they can just put us back or put us in a corporation. You know we ain’t in situation. Can you guarantee that your daughter can get a job at this radio station? But if you own this radio station, you could guarantee that. That’s what I’m talking about," Kanye told the show's host Charlamagne Tha God.
Kanye, who is known for his controversial work in the music business and is dating Kim Kardashian, is planning his wedding in the Middle East.
A source told the US edition of OK! magazine: "Kim and Kanye were talking to the baby when in mid-sentence he asked Kim to marry him. She started to cry and mouthed the word, 'Yes'.
"This time she wants something different and exotic. She likes how Katy Perry and Russell Brand got married in India with an Indian-themed wedding. She wants that. Kim thinks she's the spitting image of Egyptian goddess Isis, so she has been talking about doing an Egyptian-themed wedding, at the pyramids.
"She says Kanye digs the idea too. It will cost millions to fly everyone to Egypt, but money is no object."
If they do fly to an exotic location, both Kim and Kanye have admitted they worry about protecting their baby and the new father is rumored to pay for a doctor to check on her every day to make she is OK.
