On President Obama:

“I think Obama’s done a great job. It takes time to restore an old historic car – you can’t just do it overnight. That’s how I look at the administration that came before Obama. He put a new engine in it, he put some new rims, got a paint job. He’s criticised, and at the end of today it’s because he’s black. The numbers don’t lie – unemployment is down, Obamacare is a great thing. I think Hillary is about it for 2016.”

On Kanye West:

“Kanye, I’ve known the dude for a while. He’s a good dude, stuff just happened to him throughout his life that’s changed him a little bit. He’s still a good guy deep down. People just misunderstand him, when he talks a certain way. He’s just expressing himself, he’s intense. I couldn’t do the big spectacle thing. I’m on the road every day, I’m intoxicated some times, it’d take time to write a nice speech.”

On the revolution being televised:

“It’s already happening – do you see what’s happening in the US right now? You just want to ask a crazy ass damn question.”
