If you hadn’t noticed, or maybe you forgot, Kanye West is still a Jackass! On a telethon in 2005, West famously accused George Bush of ‘hating black people’ for not
interfering with rushing down to view, first-hand, the hurricane Katrina clean-up.
President Bush lamented in his memoir and in interview about the low-point of his Presidency being this accusation of racism from Kanye West.
West, in a response interview, lamented that he could feel Bush’s pain because he too had been accused of being a racist for his rant during the 2009 VMA’s.
“With him, it was a lack of compassion of him not rushing, him not taking the time to rush down to New Orleans. For me, it was a lack of compassion of cutting someone off in their moment. But nonetheless, I think we’re all quick to pull a race card in America. And now I’m more open, and the poetic justice that I feel, to have went through the same thing that he went [through]—and now I really more connect with him on just a humanitarian level.”
No, Kanye. Wrong again.
President Bush was reacting properly by staying out of the way.
You, however, are simply a Jackass. You were in 2005; you were in 2009. And, keeping your reign in 2010 seems to be in the cards. Maybe you should highlight the year by replacing your teeth with diamonds — oh wait, been there done that.
President Bush has class.
