Jay-Z's new song "Open Letter" has the White House doing damage control.

"Obama said, 'Chill you're going to get me impeached'/You don't need this shit anyway, chill with me on the beach,' Jay rhymes on the song.

Questioned by Politico reporter Donovan Slack earlier today, Press Secretary Jay Carney offered this: "I guess nothing rhymes with Treasury, because Treasury offers and gives licenses for travel, as you know, and the White House has nothing to do with it."

Pressed for a more direct answer, Carney said: "I am absolutely saying that the White House, from the president on down, had nothing to do with anybody's personal -- anybody's travel to Cuba. That is something that Treasury handles.
