Nikki Minaj: Not Endorsing Romney

More surprising than the flurry of stories that Nikki Minaj was apparently supporting Mitt Romney was that President Obama was so pop culturally aware that her apparent nod really wasn’t one at all.

He said in an interview with a Florida radio station, “I think she had a little rap that said that, but she likes to play different characters. So I don’t know what is going on there.”

As it turns out, her endorsement of Romney was gleaned from the lyrics of the song “Mercy,” in which she said, “I’m a Republican, voting for Mitt Romney.” But as Obama pointed out, her lyrucs can’t be taken at face value, as some blogs took it last week announcing her support of the Republican nominee.

In a tweet today, Minaj said, “Ha! Thank you for understanding my creative humor & sarcasm Mr.
President, the smart ones always do… *sends love & support* @barackobama.”

That, apparently, is an endorsement.
