First Lady Brands West's Comments 'Disgusting'

LATEST: US President GEORGE W BUSH's wife LAURA has branded KANYE WEST's accusations that her husband is a racist "disgusting".

Earlier this month (SEP05), the JESUS WALKS rapper veered away from the teleprompter and blasted Bush and accused him of not caring about black people.

First Lady Laura Bush responded to the rapper's comments during a radio interview on Thursday (September 8).

She said, "I think all of those remarks are disgusting, to be perfectly frank, because of course President Bush cares about everyone in our country. And I know that. I mean, I'm the person who lives with him. I know what he's like, and I know what he thinks, and I know how he cares about people.

"West, for his part, has attempted to clarify and offer an explanation for his statements. During the BET S.O.S. Telethon on Friday (September 9), the rapper said, "I just let my heart speak for itself without thinking about my image or how it's going to hurt me financially. I felt the world needed to hear from me. I just do it and I say what I really feel."
