Barack Obama Speaks On Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s Trip To Cuba


/ April 17, 2013

After the Carters received flack from officials for their fifth wedding anniversary trip to Cuba and the White House holding a presser, President Barack Obama made an appearance on the Today show to speak on his favorite MC’s recent journey abroad. “I wasn’t familiar that they were taking the trip,” he said. “My understanding is, I think they went through a group that organizes these educational trips down to Cuba. This is not something the White House was involved with. We’ve got better things to do.” The response comes after Hov dropped his nearly three-minute tell-all “Open Letter” where he raps about his tight friendship with O: “You gettin’ too much bread, they try to jam you/ Boy from the hood but got White House clearance.”
