Jay Carney

This is turning into a weird, weird news day. Earlier today, Jay-Z released a new one-off song called “Open Letter,” part of which was about his recent trip to Cuba and a couple of Congress members’ inquiries into it. Jay sprinked in a few lines about Obama, who, according to Jay, said that they should go chill on a beach together and that he shouldn’t worry about it. Within hours, someone actually asked White House Press Secretary Jay Carney about the exchange, and Carney claimed that this conversation did not, in fact, take place: “It’s a song.” If you want to see some truly mundane frustration in action, watch the short video below.

It’s true: Nothing much rhymes with “treasury.”

  1. Leisurely…?

  2. pleasure me

  3. She from the hood

  4. This is like when Toni Blair responded to Thom Yorke, except not at all and I didn’t pay attention.

  5. also, I love how carney handled it, ACE job, and we all shared a lulz moment at the expense of an idiot! heehee

  6. Could really go for a Bushmills™ right about now.

  7. Carney’s clearly in denial. Jay’s words are the straight truth, never bravado. (as if.)

  8. Also, glad the WH Press Corps have nothing better to harass Carney about.

  9. The White House Press Corps: where the news goes to die.

  10. Aren’t there more important things for the White House to deal with? Recession, debt, war, etc.?

  11. Yet we’re still waiting for the White House’s response to “Bow Down/I Been On.”

  12. “Jay-Z released a rap today.”

    A truly staggering display of being culturally aware. Bravo, madame, bravo.

  13. I was hoping that this would be like a rap battle kind of response, starting with J. Carney. Then Hova could work his way up through the ranks going back and forth, and finally bring Obama out for a mega battle concert that turned out to be about peace and reconciliation.

  14. Was it optimistic of me to hope that this would be featured in Where’s the Beef?
