Diddy Feels Shortchanged by Obama Presidency

By Jonathan Hailey

When President Obama ran for office, rap mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs was one of the many celebrities who endorsed him. Now, it seems Diddy might regret that decision just a bit. In a recent MSNBC interview with Al Sharpton, Diddy said he believed Obama shortchanged black people.

Combs stated, “My number one thing, to be honest, is black people—I feel like we put President Obama in the White House. When I look back, I just wanted more done for my people, because that’s the name of the game.”

“This is politics. You put somebody in office, you get in return the things that you care about for your communities. I think we got a little bit shortchanged. That’s not knocking the President,” the Bad Boy label head continued. “He’s done an excellent job, you know, but I think it’s time to turn up the heat, because the black vote is going to decide who is the next president of the United States.”
