Five years after Kanye West called out former President George Bush at the Hurricane Katrina telethon, Dubya tells Matt Lauer that he was so appalled by Ye’s comment. The full interview airs on NBC November 8th at 8pm.
“It was one of the most disgusting moments in my Presidency. He called me a racist. 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.”
