President Obama didn’t mince his words during a recent interview with Rolling Stone when talking about presidential nominee Mitt Romney—ultimately calling him a “bulls****er,” according to an excerpt released on Politico.
In the candid interview conducted by Douglas Brinkley, Obama used the word when talking about kids having good instincts about people.
“They look at the other guy and say, ‘Well that’s a bulls****er, I can tell,’” he said.
When asked about the comment, White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer said to look beyond the President’s word choice and instead focus on the underlying “trust” issues with Romney.
“What is true is that trust is a very important part of the election,” Pfeiffer said. “The President is someone who says what he means and does what he says, and Gov. Romney’s answers in the debates on domestic issues and foreign policy raise real questions about that.”
The full interview with President Obama is now available on RollingStone.com.
In other election 2012 news, producer and Black Eyed Peas front man Will.i.am has teamed up with the Advancement Project to encourage the public to go out and vote.
“You have the whole world depending on you not to vote,” he says in the 30-second clip. “Go out and activate yourself and show that you ain’t a punk.”
