Pitiful. His laser-like focus on himself is unwavering. Continuing his trend of taking hard-hitting questions from the likes of Glamour magazine and the “Morning Mayhem” radio show, Obama appeared on a hip-hop station today. He was asked about The Great Minaj/Romney Debate ™.

As Twitchy reported, Nicki Minaj released a mix-tape that appeared to endorse Romney with the line, “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney/You lazy bitches is fucking up the economy.”
This does not suit! So, President Obama is totally running with the “it’s just a persona” rationale, and wants to make sure that everyone knows it. Economy, shmonomy! What would Nicki Minaj do?
Obama ‘not sure’ Nikki Minaj endorsed Mitt Romney http://t.co/AhBOCnf7

Obama disputed Nicki Minaj's endorsement of Romney telling a Fla radio station, "She likes to play different characters."

The President of the United States is actually debating the endorsement or non-endorsement of a rapper. While there is a teachers strike in Chicago, a major city.
More from The Washington Post:
Asked if Minaj had endorsed his opponent, Obama responded, “I’m not sure that’s actually what happened. I think she had a song on there, a little rap that said that.” But, he notedaccurately, “she likes to play different characters.”
Most pressing issue of our times! Citizens find it even more pathetic and desperate than usual.
True RT @pmbenson33 Obama talking about Nicki Minaj. Yeah, she WON.

Obama responding to nicki Minaj is a huge fail. The only reason it's acceptable to some is bc it's "anti republican"

Comforted that leader of the free world has deep psychological insight into the "different characters" of Nikki Minaj http://t.co/le5iLec3
