Kanye Regrets Calling Bush Racist, Bush Forgives, Kanye Spazzes

During an interview with Matt Lauer for The Today Show yesterday, Kanye expressed regret for calling W. a racist back in 05 after Hurricane Katrina. This morning, Bush did another interview with Lauer, live on The Today Show, and Lauer played a portion of the as of yet unaired Kanye interview for the former President (at  about the 1:35 point in the video above). Bush watched it and said that he appreciated Kanye’s comments and forgave him for what he said. Then at some point last night, Kanye took to Twitter to spazz out about what he perceived as a set up by Lauer:

“I went up there to express how I was empathetic to Bush because I labeled him a racist and years later I got labeled as a racist. While I was trying to give the interview they started playing the ‘MTV’ under me with audio!!!!!!! I don’t mess with Matt Lauer or the Today Show … and that’s a very nice way for me to put it! HE TRIED TO FORCE MY ANSWERS. IT WAS VERY BRUTAL AND I CAME THERE WITH ONLY POSITIVE INTENT … I feel very alone very used very tortured very forced very misunderstood very hollow very very misused … I don’t trust anyone but myself! Everyone has an agenda. I don’t do press anymore. I can’t be everything to everybody anymore … I can’t be everybody’s hero and villain savior and sinner Christian and anti Christ! … I can’t take anymore advice!!! I create, I’m creative, I have a good heart, everyone will see and understand one day.”

So here’s what I think of this situation. First off, he never should have expressed regret even if he did regret it. Fuck that, that’s just my personal opinion. And I don’t know why Kanye still thinks he can go sit down for an interview and expect to get softball questions. Far less insignificant people then you have been crucified by the media for much less than calling a sitting president racist on national TV. And why are we making comparisons to Bush’s reaction to Katrina and the Taylor Swift incident? Seriously? I mean, in all fairness, maybe the Katrina response was pure incompetence and had nothing to do with race, but I can say for damn sure that Kanye grabbing the mic from some pop singer had absolutely nothing to do with race. Kanye shouldn’t even allow that comparison to be made, much less express empathy to Bush as if the two situations were at all similar. By doing that you kind of legitimatize the meaningless crusade against you. And of course they’re gonna play video of the Taylor incident during the interview, that’s the most controversial clip they have of you and they have to bring in viewers the same way you have to sell albums. Get used to it buddy, they’re gonna be playing that clip until the day you die.

    i had a breezy with a one, not a terrible one, but an accent none the less.
    i used to try and make her prounounce R’s, sounded funny, and said it was weird to do.
    then i showed her what weird was, just playing ahhahaaha

    but some of these girls, its just not attractive on them, while they smokin marlboros and drinking bud light…

    but yeah Louie is funny,i gotta watch the rest of those epsiodes though.

    What the fuck are u talking about?

    >louie on FX

    @billz…he ain even beat that shorty but settled for bigguns jus walkin out.

    I died.

    props to dewill…he kept tweetin bout that show. now I’m waitin for the next season.

    ^ Dewill, b-ease, me, and a few other Nahggers were on Twitter DYING when that shit came on. I didn’t think he could top the original Lucky Louie that was on HBO but it’s definitely better. And the chick who played his wife on the show is the white chick he randomly met at the PTA meetin’ in the new Louie show.

    The stand-up part also adds a twist to it that’s dope. I guess that was taken from Seinfeld, a show I never watched.

    dudes just cheat to have something different. 90 percent of the girl they are cheating with is beat compared to their main chick. Its just the fact that u are acting out and getting something new that is making you do that.

  13. rex hussla Says:

    Feeling empathy doesn’t necessarily mean you apologize or take back what happened right? Bush is a fucking evil man…look at this piece of shit SMH.

    Yeah they pretty much set up Kanye, I just don’t understand this whole Today Show/Matt Lauer/George Bush shit…as a reporter or news program with any kind of integrity you shouldn’t even show this old hick any fucking respect whatsoever, let alone let him promote himself and talk about his “regrets” from his presidency FOH

  14. mcb Says:

    and CO SIGN TO THE MAX girls with curves

    i stay telling ex-breezys andother girls, i dont mind a little extra,a s long as you got that ass situation right. cant be expecting airbrush models around the way, everyday….

    but if a girl is tight, still with some curves, thats good, but i still prefer the one with a little extra and a nicer ass

    “I’m doing pretty good as far as geniuses go”

    I don’t know anymore. His unrelenting feelings of self-importance will never allow him to shut up about even the most trivial of subjects. He wants so bad to be the most important artist/person in pop culture today, but can’t seem to realize that the only way to do that is to play the media’s game, at least to some extent. Even Jay learned that. If I were Kanye, I’d just go the Radiohead route… fuck the labels, fuck the media, just put out music and albums on your own terms and the people will come. I mean, he’s already going in that direction with the GOOD Fridays. But I don’t think his unquenchable thirst for attention will ever allow him to do such a thing. He NEEDS the spotlight, even if only to complain about how much it’s burning him.

    U kidding right? A president is supposed to be strong, confident and decisive. That way, in a crisis he can make intelligent decisions and stand firmly by them. He’s not supposed to be swayed by his racist, power hungry advisers seeking to spread democracy by force.
