George Bush says Kanye West's comment that he "doesn't care about Black people" was the worst moment in his Presidency.
Kanye West may have thought that he mended old bridges he stomped on, but ex-president George Bush says he's still hurt.

In an interview with NBC's Matt Lauer for the upcoming interview on the Matt Lauer Reports , George Bush recalls that dreadful day in 2005 when Kanye West boldly proclaimed in front of millions the truth statement that "George Bush doesn't care about black people."

“He called me a racist,” Bush said in the interview. “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.”




It seems that Bush was so upset about the proclamation that he wrote about it in his memoirs Decision Points.
“Five years later I can barely write those words without feeling disgust. 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.'George Bush Responds To Kanye Post Katrina Criticism: "That Was The Most Disgusting Thing I've Ever Heard" [Video]

George Bush says Kanye West's comment that he "doesn't care about Black people" was the worst moment in his Presidency.
Kanye West may have thought that he mended old bridges he stomped on, but ex-president George Bush says he's still hurt.

In an interview with NBC's Matt Lauer for the upcoming interview on the Matt Lauer Reports , George Bush recalls that dreadful day in 2005 when Kanye West boldly proclaimed in front of millions the truth statement that "George Bush doesn't care about black people."

“He called me a racist,” Bush said in the interview. “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.”




It seems that Bush was so upset about the proclamation that he wrote about it in his memoirs Decision Points.

In an excerpt read by Lauer, Bush states:

“Five years later I can barely write those words without feeling disgust. 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.'






Bush who states that although minorities were criticizing his choices in business, he felt his "race relations record" was strong.

"My record was strong, I felt, when it came to race relations and giving people a chance." Bush said. "[That moment on the telethon] was a disgusting moment.”




Bush states that although the Kanye diss was the most disgusting moment during his presidency, he was deeply affected by the Hurricane that devastated Louisiana. Bush goes on to say that although he doesn't care...about critics. He wanted to shed the true light on how the incident affected him personally.

"I make it clear [in my book] that the misery in Louisiana affected me deeply as well. There's a lot of tough moments in the book. And [the incident with Kanye West]was a disgusting moment, pure and simple.”
