George Bush Still Fuming Over Kanye’s ‘Black People’ Line

Not losing thousands of soldiers in his made up wars. Not seeing thousands of Americans perish in New York. And not his “Heckuva job, Brownie” remark. It’s Kanye West’s line “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” (during a Hurricane Katrina telethon) that Bush says “was one of the most disgusting moments in my Presidency.”

“He called me a racist,” Bush tells Matt Lauer in an upcoming 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.”

Maybe words really do hurt.bb
