G.W. Bush: Kanye West's 'Despicable' Slam Was Worst Moment in Office

Tuesday, 02 Nov 2010 09:52 PM

A racially tinged blast from rap singer Kanye West provided President George W. Bush with his worst moment in office, the 43rd president tells NBC’s Matt Lauer in an interview that will air Wednesday, The Hill reports. During a 2005 charity telecast, West was criticizing Bush for his handling of Hurricane Katrina and said, "George Bush doesn't care about black people."

During Bush's first one-one-one television interview since the end of his presidency, he said the comment was despicable.

When Lauer asked whether that was his worst moment in office, the former president said, "Yes. My record was strong I felt when it came to race relations and giving people a chance. And it was a disgusting moment."
