Kanye and Bush go back and forth

Ex President, George Bush Jr, has come out for the first time about Kanye's comments following Hurricane Katrina. Mr West had said, live on TV, that Bush did not care about black people. This week, Bush had appeared on Today with Matt Lauer and said of the comments "He called me a racist, and I didn't appreciate it then. I don't appreciate it now... It's not true".

Yesterday however, Kanye came back at these comments by saying "I really connect with him". He also said that his main issue was the lack of compassion that he saw and that Bush has not rushed down to New Orleans.

Then, rather ridiculously, Kanye compared Bush and Katrina to his own 'big' situation... with Taylor Swift. Kanye said that people had branded him racist since the Taylor Swift incident and that he had been humbled by it all and said that he regretted his comment to Bush.
