George W. Bush’s memoir isn’t a picture book filled with doodles and scratch ‘n sniff pages. I wish. If it was I’d be the first bottom (Definition of “bottom” – My kindergarten teacher’s nickname for ass cheeks. Not the other thing, you dirty fuck!) on the carpet to watch Bush show us experts from his book at Barnes & Noble. No, Bush’s memoir is filled with words, a lot of them. And in his book he gives a shout out to GAY FISH! Bush says that one of my favorite moments in television history was also one of the most disgusting moments in his entire presidency. Almost as disgusting as the time Laura snuck spinach into his brownies to trick him into eating more green veggies. DAMN THAT LAURA!
In an interview with Matt Lauer airing on NBC next week, Bush explains why he wasn’t laughing with the rest of us when he watched Kanye West’s random punchline followed by Mike Myers’ “IS THIS REAL LIFE?” face and Chris Tucker’s “What in the…” bulging eyes. EW reports:
“He called me a racist,” Bush tells Lauer. “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.”
Lauer quotes from Bush’s new book: “Five years later I can barely write those words without feeling disgust.” Lauer adds, “You go on: ‘I faced a lot of criticism as President. I didn’t like hearing people claim that I lied about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction or cut taxes to benefit the rich. But the suggestion that I was racist because of the response to Katrina represented an all-time low.’
President Bush responds: “Yeah. I still feel that way as you read those words. I felt ‘em when I heard ‘em, felt ‘em when I wrote ‘em and I felt ‘em when I’m listening to ‘em.
Lauer: “You say you told Laura at the time it was the worst moment of your Presidency?”
Bush: “Yes. My record was strong I felt when it came to race relations and giving people a chance. And it was a disgusting moment.”
Oh, George, you’re just saying that so Taylor Swift will invite you to her Thanksgiving dinner. Well played.
And I’ve been refreshing Kanye West’s SHRINE TO GAY FISH (aka his Twitter page) to see if he’s dropped any CAPS LOCK-sponsored prolific words about this and he hasn’t so far. But he did type this:
I always misspell genius SMH! The irony!
