an irresistible compulsion to post this

All sorts of cognitive dissonance in creating this montage

2005 Kanye West: “President Bush doesn’t care about black people.”

2008 Kanye West: “I’ll let [Taylor Swift] finish.  But Beyoncé had one of the greatest videos of all time!”

2008 President Obama: “He’s a jackass.”

2010 President George W. Bush: “[Kanye’s comment] was one of the most disgusting moments in my presidency.”

An annoying hip-hop personality puts his foot in his mouth twice.  One President dismisses him in 3 words.  Another President declares it one of the worst moments of his 8 years in office.

There are several orders of magnitude difference between the first "lesser than" symbol and the second in this statement.
