Read the HuffPost article here: Bush NBC Interview: Being Called A Racist By Kanye West The Worst Moment Of My Presidency
I’m glad I’m not the only one whose reaction to this was “wow, seriously?” Lets get past Bush’s handling of post 9/11, Afghanistan, and Iraq, in which, as Commander in-Chief, he sent thousands of American soldiers to their deaths and we still can’t find a worthy reason. Let’s get past that, and look at why Kanye made that comment. While it indeed imply that Bush might be a racist, it was more of Kanye’s frustrations of Bush’s dismal handling of Katrina.
Another thing is, Kanye was on the verge of tears. People often exaggerate their words when they are very emotional.
Finally, and frankly, why should George Bush care what a celebrity rapper says? Lots of people have called Bush much harsher names, only this time, Kanye said it on the air. But surely Bush had other things to worry about other than some rapper saying he doesn’t care about black people?
