Chicago rapper Lupe Fiasco blasted President Obama during his appearance on CBS’s What’s Trending with Shira Lazar Tuesday, attacking the president’s foreign policy and declaring him to be a “terrorist.”

“To me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America,” Fiasco said. “I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s causing the other forms of terrorism. You know the root cause of terrorists is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists.”

Later in the interview, the rapper explained that he has no desire to vote in the 2012 presidential election. “I don’t get involved in politics,” he said. “It’s meaningless. If I’m going to say I stand behind this person and write on a piece of paper that says, ‘Yeah, I stand for this person,’ then I have to take responsibility for everything he does cause that’s just who I am as a human being. So politicians aren’t going to do that because I don’t want you to bomb some village in the middle of nowhere.”
