Kanye West feels you, George Bush. It’s time to let go of the pain! Before you WTF us, guys, let us explain. See now, Bush is a sensitive ol’ soul, who was hurt by big ol’ meanie Kanye calling him racist. Whilst being interviewed by Matt Lauer, he revealed, “He called me a racist. And 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.”
All together now… Awww. And now would be the correct time to interject a WTF, too. Because of everything Bush could have talked about (read: apologized for), the man decided to talk about how his presidential morale was rocked by a rapper.
But Kanye, on the other hand, is turning a new leaf y’all. He may have dumped Louis Vuitton for Lanvin, but at least he’s sorry for it. He even apologized to Taylor Swift for ruining one of her many award moments (time to get over that one). And he’s sorry for the trauma he inflicted on G.B saying, “I definitely can understand the way he feels, to be accused of being a racist in any way, because the same thing happened to me, where I got accused of being a racist.”
Kanye can never be done in a couple of sentences, so he added, “For both situations, it was basically a lack of compassion that America felt in that situation. 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.”
OMG. Kanye and George Bush? BFF? Totes going to happen. And Kanye, we know you’re being more “open” and all that. Just don’t say you’re connecting with George Bush. Ever.
