White House on Jay-Z song: Nope.

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Yesterday, we posted the new song from Jay-Z, "Open Letter," a diss track aimed at critics of his recent trip to Cuba. In the song, the rapper claimed the song was okay'd by the White House but White House spokesperson Jay Carney took umbrage with that statement since, technically, the Department of the Treasury approved the trip, not the White House. When asked about the song, Carney quipped, "I guess nothing rhymes with Treasury." He added, "I am absolutely saying that the White House and the president on down had nothing to do with anybody's personal, anybody's travel to Cuba."

Meanwhile, North Korea is still threatening to nuke the world and the sequester cuts are still harming the nation.
