Kanye West: 'I'm Like The Rap Version of George W. Bush'
When a caller contacted Kanye via Elvis Duran and the Morning Show and said she’d lost respect for him, Kanye replied back, “I am like the rap version of George Bush. I became George Bush…the irony, poetic justice of that was just so amazing. Just for [the caller] to say ‘I lost respect for you’ is just how a black person would completely say the same thing about George Bush.”
“The misery in Louisiana affected me deeply as well,” President Bush said of Kanye’s telethon outburst (via People). “There’s a lot of tough moments in [his new book, Decision Points]. And it was a disgusting moment, pure and simple.”
