President Bush still reeling from Kanye's telethon dis

In what's surly only the tip of the iceberg of ridiculousness found in his forthcoming memoir "Decision Points," President Bush says his "all-time low" during his eight years in office was when Kanye West nervously hijacked a Hurricane Katrina telethon to tell the world "George Bush doesn't care about black people."

EW's Ken Tucker has a transcript of an interview between the former president and Matt Lauer that's to air on Monday, where Lauer calls the president on the obvious: You're saying an insult was worse than Katrina?

Bush's not-so convincing response:

“No, and I also make it clear that the misery in Louisiana affected me deeply as well. There’s a lot of tough moments in the book. And it was a disgusting moment, pure and simple.”
