Believe it or not, Kanye West actually seems to understand why George W. Bush is still angry with him.
Bush has recently said that one of the “most disgusting moments” in his presidency was when Kanye said that Bush “doesn’t care about black people.” Well, during a radio interview yesterday Kanye said he feels where Bush is coming from, because HE was accused of being racist after interrupting Taylor’s big moment at the “MTV Video Music Awards”.
He said “I 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 racist… With both situations, it was a lack of compassion that America saw…”
Lack of compassion?
“With him, it was lack of compassion, not taking the time to rush down to New Orleans. With me it was lack of compassion, cutting someone off in their moment.”
Well, it seems he’s not really apologizing for calling Bush Jr. a racist…
“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 I feel to have went through the same thing he went… And I really connect with him on a humanitarian level, because the next morning when he felt that, I felt that too.”
Ohhhhh… it’s like in Disney movies… and they lived happily ever after…
Hey, remember how that went? The whole Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift to say how great Beyonce’s video was?
