According to Us Magazine, former President George Bush is still holding resentment for 2005 comments made by rapper Kanye West at a Hurricane Katrina benefit. On the televised concert for Hurricane Katrina relief, West, infamous for his outbursts and digs, said "George Bush doesn't care about black people," adding that he’s responsible for helping "the less well-off as slow as possible." West then told Matt Lauer that he heard what the rapper said about him. “He called me a racist," he said. However, out of all aspects of his presidency, Bush feels so negatively about West that he is pegging the rapper’s dig at the former president as “one of the most disgusting moments” as president. He says, "And I didn't appreciate it then. I don't appreciate it now," Bush says. "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, and it was one of the most disgusting moments in my Presidency."
