This morning the president told an Orlando hip-hop station he wasn't sure what to make of the media reports of the artist's endorsement or whether to believe she was being serious.
"I'm not sure that's actually what happened," Obama said in a radio interview.
The hosts of Power 95.3's "Obie and Lil'Shawn" show had asked the president what he thought of a recently debuted Minaj song, which contains the lyrics "I'm a Republican voting for Mitt Romney/You lazy b*****s is f*****g up the economy." Minaj was featured as a guest artist on a Lil' Wayne album released last week.
"I think she had a song on there -- a little rap that said that," Obama said. "But she likes to play different characters, so I don't know what's going on there."
