If you used a high-grade scientific tool to magnify my heart about 500,000x, you’d probably find the tiniest sliver of pity inside for Kanye West. I mean, the guy has delusions of grandeur and likely thinks he’s the second coming. He’s desperate to one up everyone on earth, though to what end, no one’s really sure – and I don’t even think he is. But such extreme narcissism leads to Kanye talking major bullshit to the point where he becomes extremely hyperbolic… or maybe just a liar. One such lie? That Barack Obama calls Kanye at home so they can shoot the shit via phone.
Of course, Obama was asked about this during an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week and called bullshit on this nonsense (as if he should have to) in his typically charming Obama way, saying, “I don’t think I’ve got his home number.”
I mean, could Obama be lying? Sure. But is he? Come on, of course he’s not. As if the President of the United States has nothing better to do than to sit on the phone with an egomaniac who thinks he shits gold? I don’t think so.
Some paps apparently caught up with Kanye later and told him that Obama denied the phone story, to which he replied, “I love Obama. He called our house before. He knows that. Don’t try to pit us against each other. I love Obama.” So basically, if you call Kanye out for lying, you’re trying to pit him against the person he’s lying about. Important lesson.
