[News] George Bush: Kanye West “Black People” Quote Darker Moment of Presidency

Remember a couple years ago when Kanye West proclaimed that “George Bush doesn’t care about Black People” during the Hurricane Katrina relief broadcast in 2005?

In an interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer (airing Nov. 8th) to promote his memoir Decision Points, Bush revealed that Kanye’s comment was “one of the most disgusting moments of my presidency… 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.”

Lauer further pressed him on the comment: “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…”

“No,” Bush answered, “I also make it clear that the misery in Louisiana affected me deeply as well. There’s a lot of tough moments in the book. And it was a disgusting moment, pure and simple.”
