President Obama is right in the heat of the 2012 election campaign, however it's nice to see that the leader of the free world can still take time out of his busy day to talk about the issues that really matter. The president called into Y100!'s Michael Yo Show to comment on the question of the day - the feud between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj.
The president was quite diplomatic in answering the question of whether he could resolve the spat, stating that he believed the two would work out their differences. On being asked who he supported in the the pop star rivalry, he went with Mariah. "She's actually done some events for us. I've gotten to know her and Nick (Cannon), she's a wonderful lady. Nicki I don't know, but I've got her on my iPod," the leader of the free world commented.
For whatever reason, the fight between Carey and Minaj has been the talk of the internet as of late, with blows being exchanged in both directions. Minaj's recent outburst at Mariah Carey was followed by accusations from Carey's side that the other diva threatened to shoot her.
Looks like Obama is trying to tick all of the boxes for a good president, getting involved in every area of daily American life. Despite the man himself weighing in, however, the conflict remains unresolved. But when the president himself urges on the peace talks, the inevitable question is: why can't we all just get along?
