Lupe Calls Obama The Biggest Terrorist

Lupe Fiasco has never been one to hold back his opinions and had some strong words against President Barack Obama in a recent interview.

While speaking with CBS News’ “What’s Trending” the Chicago rapper said, “To me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America.

“For me, I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s actually causing the other forms of terrorism,” he continued.

“The root cause of terrorism is the stuff that the U.S. government allows to happen, the foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists. And it’s easy for us, because it’s really just some oil that we can really get on our own.”

Unlike Chicago rapper Common, don’t expect Lupe Fiasco to get an invite to the White House anytime soon.

Not that Fiasco would accept an invitation, seeing as he doesn’t follow politics.

“I don’t vote. I don’t get involved in politics,” Lupe explained.

“Because it’s meaningless, to be honest. First of all, I’m a real big believer if I’m going to vouch for someone, I’m going to stand behind everything they do. If I’m going to say I stand behind this person and write on a piece of paper that says I stand for this person, then I have to take responsibility for everything that he does. Because that’s just how I am as a human being.

“Politicians aren’t going to do that, because I don’t want you to bomb some village in the middle of nowhere.”
