Bush: Kanye's Critique 'Disgusting'

Maybe he and Taylor Swift should get together to commiserate? Former President George W. Bush tells Matt Lauer in an interview that will air November 8 that one of the worst moments of his presidency was his bruised feelings after rapper Kanye West’s famously said, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.” The president tells Lauer, “It was one of the most disgusting moments in my presidency. He called me a racist, and I didn’t appreciate it then. I don’t appreciate it now.” President Bush’s book Decision Points comes out November 9, the day after the interview airs, and Lauer points out that in the book he told Laura Bush that Kanye’s remarks were one of the worst moments in his presidency. Lauer goes on to suggest, “You’re not saying that the worst moment in your presidency was watching the misery in Louisiana. You’re saying it was when someone insulted you because of that.”
