George W. Bush has emerged from the shadows for an interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer. His interview will air on Monday, November 8, and all of his lowest points from his eight years preceding Obama will be revealed. He’ll also discuss elements of his new book “Decision Points”, according to Huffington Post. But, what you will find laughable as he shares his inner most thoughts is that in all the time he served in office the absolute lowest point for him was when, according to Bush, Kanye “called me a racist.”
Can you believe that? A man takes his shoe off and hurls it at your head risking severe punishment because of his disgust for you, another man, Colin Powell, testifies on your behalf in front of the U.N. with falsified documents implicating the Iraqi people with weapons of mass destruction THAT THEY DID NOT HAVE and last but certainly not least, the tremendous fiasco that was the failed rescue of the city of New Orleans and your lowest point is Kanye West calling you a racist?
And let’s get it right! Matt Lauer pointed out to Bush that Kanye did not call him a racist he merely said he did not “care about black people!” Well, Bush being well versed on racism didn’t let Matt get away with that one. He immediately corrected him saying:
“MATT LAUER: Well, what he said, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.”
PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH: That’s — “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, and it was one of the most disgusting moments in my Presidency.”
