President Barack Obama reportedly didn’t approve of rapper Kanye West’s antics at the MTV Video Music Awards.

We may never know the full details — Obama’s remarks were off the record — but the word “jackass” evidently came into play.

UPDATE: TMZ has the audio.

Kanye West hijacked teen country star Taylor Swift’s moment in the spotlight at the MTV award show, and was booed loudly when he leaped on stage and grabbed the microphone from Swift, 19, as she was accepting the trophy for best female pop video.

MUSIC-MTV/EUROPEThe president discussed the incident while being taped for a CNBC interview on Monday. ABC correspondent Terry Moran was allowed to review the president’s remarks.

He then wrote on Twitter:

Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a “jackass” for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT’S presidential.
