Kanye hurt Bush’s feelings

November 4, 2010

America’s sweetheart, George W. Bush, said that Kanye West’s public criticism of him after Hurricane Katrina (remember “George Bush doesn’t care about black people”? Hilarious! Comedy gold, Kanye!) was one of the most “disgusting” moments of his presidency. While out promoting his new work of fiction book Decision Points, the former commander-in-chief sat down with Matt Lauer where he had this to say about the rapper’s comments:

“That [means], ‘He’s 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.”

I don’t want to tell George Bush how to do his job but is this really what you should be talking about? Is this truly one of the lowest moments of your time in office? I mean, seriously? Of all the crazy, zany trouble you got into during those eight years, this is the one that keeps you up at night? Not the torture in Iraq? Not the dead soldiers in Iraq? Not Iraq?

I know it hurts to be criticized but George Bush was criticized by practically everybody on this planet. You were the worst, George! Everyone was ragging on you! Of all those people, Kanye’s opinion is the one that matters most? I’ll let you in on a little secret, George: Kanye West is fucking insane. Have you read his Twitter account?

Maybe Bush is just bringing this up now because he knows Kanye has been prone to apologizing lately. West’s mouth got him into trouble not too long ago and he’s been very polite and subdued lately. Perhaps G.W. thinks Kanye will see this interview and decide to publicly recant his statements. Maybe then America will consider Bush’s terms in office a success. Because to George Bush, the only stain on his presidency was Kanye’s outburst. Things were fine aside from that!

Decision Points hits stores November 9th in both hardcover and pop-up edition.
