Last night, Jay-Z hosted a charity carnival at New York City’s Pier 54, taking a break from the festivities to chop it up with E! Online about his baby with Beyonce and President Barack Obama. In his typically casual way, Hov shared his excitement for his firstborn with Bey with a few words.

“I’m excited! I think that is pretty easy,” he said, noting his ability to share the excitement with others. “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, claiming that he was dealt a bad hand when he entered office and that he still supports him.



“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!”
