Bush’s comments on Kanye:
President George W. Bush says that when he heard Kanye West say, â€œGeorge Bush doesnâ€™t care about black people,â€ â€œit was one of the most disgusting moments in my presidency.â€
â€˜I faced a lot of criticism as president. I didnâ€™t like hearing people claim that I lied about Iraqâ€™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.â€™
President Bush responds: â€œYeah. I still feel that way as you read those words. I felt â€˜em when I heard â€˜em, felt â€˜em when I wrote â€˜em, and I felt â€˜em when Iâ€™m listening to â€˜em.
Lauer: â€œYou say you told Laura at the time it was the worst moment of your presidency?â€
Bush: â€œYes. My record was strong, I felt, when it came to race relations and giving people a chance. And it was a disgusting moment.â€
