International rap superstar and soon-to-be Mr. Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, may be popular in the hip hop world for his innovative and creative albums, but he definitely hasn’t made many fans through interviews.

Earlier this week, West told Power 105’s Breakfast Club that Kardashian was more influential and famous than Kate Upton and Michelle Obama, going on to compare his girlfriend to Marilyn Monroe.

“Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a [bikini] pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day," West said.

While many people thought that was shocking enough, he proceeded by explaining President Obama’s failings were due to his lack of Jewish connections.

"Let me tell you something about George Bush and oil money, and Obama and no money. People want to say Obama can't make these moves, or he's not executing. That's because he ain't got those connections,” West began.

“Black people don't have the same level of connections as Jewish people. Black people don't have the same connections as oil people. You know we don't know nobody that got a nice house. You know we don't know nobody with paper like that, that we can go to when we're down."

In 2011, West was booed at a concert in England after comparing himself to Adolf Hitler.

"I walk through the hotel and I walk down the street, and people look at me like I'm insane, like I'm Hitler," he told a crowd of 40,000 people at the Big Chill Festival.

"One day the light will shine through, and one day people will understand everything I ever did."
