President Obama recently sat down for an interview with Today’s Savannah Guthrie, during which he discussed a multitude of topics from gun control to abortion. One of the hot issues Guthrie brought up was Jay-Z and Beyonce’s recent trip to Cuba because apparently this is one of our Nation’s biggest concerns and Press Secretary Jay Carney’s remarks last week just weren’t convincing enough. In the rapper’s “Open Letter” he claims that he and his wife received clearance for the trip from The White House, yet according to the President that’s not necessarily the case.
“I wasn’t familiar that they were taking the trip,” he stated. “My understanding is that they went through a group that organizes these educational trips down to Cuba. This is not something that the White House was involved with. We’ve got better things to do.” And there you have it. So, are we all OK now? Can we consider this one solved and move on?
