Young Jeezy Duels With John McCain

Young Jeezy took on John McCain recently, drilling the presidential hopeful about his plans to help those in need when they appeared together on Saturday Night Live. He called the Senator a “fraud” and described their tense encounter:

?I told [John McCain] the ?hood was f**ked up, and he was like, ?How you doing?? (It was) real talk. They know entertainers, so they shake your hand (and say), ?I?m your friend.? But my mama is about to have surgery that I gotta pay for out of my pocket because she can?t get insurance. ?I don?t really feel McCain. It ain?t just because Barack is black; he can make change. Just like Bush equals recession, Barack equals progression. I really feel that.?
