matt lauer interviews george w bush1

Former President George W. Bush sat down with Today Show host Matt Lauer for an in-depth interview that will air on Monday, Nov. 8 at 8 p.m. ET as a special primetime Matt Lauer Reports.

The candid discussion delved into the former commander-in-chief's  new memoir Decision Points.  One startling revelation deals with an unscripted comment that rapper Kanye West made during an NBC Hurricane Katrina telethon.

West said: "George Bush doesn't care about black people."  Bush told Lauer: "That means 'he's a racist.'  I didn't appreciate it then.  I don't appreciate it now.  I resent it, it's not ture, and it was one of the most disgusting moments in my presidency."

Lauer seemed incredulous: "You're not saying that the worst moment in your presidency was watching the misery in Louisiana?  You're saying it was when someone insulted you because of that?"

Bush stammered: "No -- that -- and I make it clear that the misery in Louisiana affected me deeply as well.  There's a lot of tough moments in the book.  And it was a disgusting moment, pure and simple."

After dealing with the 9/11 attacks, Hurricane Katrina and the beginning of our economic crisis in 2008, all that George W. Bush could think about was the offhand and emotional comment of some rapper? Good grief! I can't believe that this man had lasted two terms in office.

Wow!! Just wow. I would have thought having terrorists flying planes into buildings would have been a wee bit higher on the list.
