Barack Obama has better things to do...

…than sort out Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s holiday to Cuba, thanks very much.

LAST WEEK THERE was a big kerfuffle over in the U.S. of A. over Jay Z and Beyoncé’s holidays.

Y’see, they went to Cuba, which would be grand for us, but in America there is a trade embargo on the country so Americans are not meant to go there.

Jay Z put a cat among the pigeons when he rapped about the trip afterwards, implying that it had all been sorted out by Barack Obama himself.

The President has put the kibosh on all of that now though, saying he has ‘better things to do’ than sort out the Jay-Zs holidays.

He’s dead right.  He’s a very busy man.  Sure look at all the things he has to be doing!

He’s still perfecting his jump shot

So no.  He doesn’t have time to sort out people’s holidays, and we’ll thank you to think more carefully the next time you suspect him of that kind of carry on.
