So, let me get this straight; George W. Bush didn’t catch Osama Bin Laden, didn’t find WMD’s in Iraq, ushered in The Great Recession, $4.50 per gallon gas prices, failed TARP Bailout…and President G-Dub is disgusted at Kanye West? Seriously?
In a new interview with MATT LAUER, Bush says, quote, “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. It’s one thing to say, ‘I don’t appreciate the way he’s handled his business.’ It’s another thing to say, ‘This man’s a racist.’ I resent it, it’s not true.”
He adds, quote, “My record was strong I felt when it came to race relations and giving people a chance. And it was a disgusting moment.”
Bush also addresses Kanye in his upcoming book, “Decision Points”. He says, quote, “I faced a lot of criticism as President. I didn’t like hearing people claim that I lied about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction or cut taxes to benefit the rich.
“But the suggestion that I was racist because of the response to Katrina represented an all-time low.”
