Jay-Z Praises President Barack Obama, Talks Beyonce’s Pregnancy

Jay-Z, who hosted a charity carnival at New York City’s Pier 54 this week, took a break from the festivities to talk with E! Online.

Hov opens up about his baby with Beyonce and President Barack Obama.

“I’m excited! I think that is pretty easy,” Jay-Z told E!. “Someone emailed me this morning and said ‘Some people climb the ladder and grab the ladder. And some people pull more people up the ladder and you are a person who pulls more people up the ladder.’ I was very humbled by that.”

He also weighed in on Obama’s presidency.

“I still think he is the best man for the job,” he explained. “Yes, I think he got a raw deal and a bad economy. You wouldn’t be given anything you can’t handle so he must be really special, because he has a lot of work to do!”
