President Obama thinks there was more to Nicki Minaj’s supposed “endorsement” of Mitt Romney than meets the eye — and Minaj says the Commander-in-Chief is 100 percent correct.

In Lil Wayne’s new “Dedication 4″ mix tape, Minaj raps, “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney / You lazy b—-es is f—ing up the economy” (LISTEN HERE).

As Gossip Cop pointed out, given Minaj’s history of performing under multiple personalities and her penchant for stunts, it seemed presumptuous to take her “endorsement” at face value.

During a Monday morning interview with an Orlando radio station, President Obama was asked about the Minaj lyrics, and the idea that she’s “going for Mitt Romney.”

Obama responded, “I’m not sure that’s actually what happened… She likes to play different characters. So I don’t know what’s going on there.”

And guess what — Obama was right.

Minaj tweeted, “Ha! Thank you for understanding my creative humor & sarcasm Mr. President, the smart ones always do… *sends love & support*”

It looks like the “Pink Friday” rapper won’t be out on the campaign trail with Romney after all.
