Hes the leader of the free world, and President Barack Obama has way too much on his plate to worry about celebrity travel itineraries.
During his interview with Today, the Commander-in-Chief confessed that despite reports to the contrary he didnt have any information on Jay-Z and Beyoncé Knowles” recent controversial trip to Cuba.
Obama noted, I wasnt familiar that they were taking the trip. My understanding is I think they went through a group that organizes these educational trips down to Cuba. You know, this is not something the White House was involved with. We”ve got better things to do.”
Instead, Barack shared hes working on making the USA a better place. I feel personally responsible the same way I hope every parent out there feels responsible for all our kids. The key thing for me, is every once in a while we are confronted with an issue that should transcend politics.”
“I think the political engines of the party and blogs, et cetera, force people into taking more extreme positions publicly than they actually believe privately. Im willing to try anything. As Ive said, I”m willing to wash folks” cars and walk their dogs if I can get some legislation passed.”
