Today In Boo Hoo: Kanye Hurt Dubya's Feelings

Former President George W. Bush has a book coming out! Yippee! Now we get to find out what he was really thinking during the years he drove the U.S. into the ground headed our nation. Awesome.

While we expect there's going to be plenty of nuggets for us to pick through once the book actually comes out and the interview cycle is in full swing, a tasty morsel has already fallen due to an upcoming interview between the ex-president and the Today Show's Matt Lauer around Kanye West's famous accusation that ”George Bush doesn't care about black people." According to Prefix:

...W. reportedly stated that the lowest point of his administration was West’s flagrant criticism of his racial beliefs. “It was one of the most disgusting moments of my presidency,” said Bush. When Lauer pushed the topic, asking if watching the suffering in post-Katrina Louisiana affected him more than the criticism, he replied, "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."

Hey Dubya, you know what else was a disgusting moment, pure and simple? Your entire handling of a national catastrophe that nearly wiped out an entire city and displaced a large percentage of its population. We sure hope there's an apology for that buried somewhere in your new book.
