Lupe Fiasco is a Chicago based rapper not known for biting his tongue. He leveled some pretty harsh criticisms at the President as well as the country as a whole as far as terrorism is concerned. Peeped what he had to say in the video below:

In an interview on "What's Trending," a CBS News video segment, Lupe Fiasco -- a rapper known for his socially conscious and politically charged lyrics -- had some harsh words for the president.

"In my fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama, and the United States of America," Lupe told host Shira Lazar.

He went on to explain the comment:

"I'm trying to fight the terrorism that's actually causing the other forms of terrorism. You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff that the U.S. government allows to happen, and the foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists. And it's easy for us because it's just some oil."

He followed up his comments about terrorism by explaining why he doesn't vote, saying that casting a ballot for a politician for him is an endorsement of everything that person does. He won't do that for any presidential candidates because "I don't want you to bomb some village in the middle of nowhere," he said.
