George W. Bush called Kanye West’s “George W. Bush doesn’t care about black people” statement the worst moment of his entire presidency. Not 9-11. Not the sending of thousands of soldiers to die just so he could prove to his daddy who’s the bigger man. Not the hemorrhaging of jobs and money after 8 years of prosperity.
And not even the fact that he let an entire city drown. Hurricane Katrina wasn’t the worst moment of his presidency, being accused of racism was the worst moment.
Well, in Bush’s defense, I don’t think he particularly doesn’t care about black people. He doesn’t care about anyone who’s not a wealthy, corrupt crony of his. A lot of the people he doesn’t care about just happen to be black. So Kanye West was only wrong in that he didn’t point out all of the many subsets of people George W. Bush also doesn’t care about.
I suddenly feel the urge to tell Taylor Swift to sack up and stop whining.
