Kanye West Today Show Rant Surfaces On The Internet

The interview on the 'Today Show' that KANYE WEST ranted about on his Twitter page has surfaced on the Internet this morning (11th November 2010) The 33-year-old rapper was speaking to host MATT LAUER when he became irritated and began ranting at the show's production team, and at Lauer himself.
Kanye was shown the clip of GEORGE W BUSH calling remarks West made about him 'disgusting'. The rapper had accused the former President of 'not caring about black people' in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, and last week Mr Bush called the moment the lowest point of his time in office. However, when West was shown the video, he said, "I didn't need you guys to show me the tape in order to prompt my emotions. Y'all don't have to do the TV stuff with me, this is reality.. I don't need all the jazz", before asking someone off-camera to "be quiet for a second".
West became even more agitated when asked about the TAYLOR SWIFT 'incident'. "Yo, how am I supposed to talk if you're going to run this thing in the middle of while I'm talking", he fumed, as a video of the infamous moment at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards ran on a television screen, adding, "I'm hearing it while I'm trying to talk. Please don't let that happen again. It's like ridiculous." The rapper is due to return to the show on November 26th 2010 for a live concert.

I have been a long time viewer of the Today Show dating back to the days of Dave Garroway and the Chimp J. Fred Muggs. This morning's interview with Mr. West caught my attention and completely incensed me like no other Show I have witnessed over the past 55 years that I have been paying attention. How does this gent continue to make so many public "gaffs" and still command the media's attention? Its seems the more he attempts to explain himself, the more he ends up creating even greater havoc and attention. I am not buying it and I will be sure not to have my set on NBC the morning of Nov 26 when he is scheduled to perform on the Today Show. It is a darn shame we have to put up any longer with a guy who just doesn't get it!

is G.W. Bush a racist?Republicans at election time-with their conservative entertainment subsidiary news networks work hard to discredit voters in urban area’s which are predominantly “black” or not “white”. As they do accuse and attack minorities as Sarah Palin tried pigeonholing Barack Obama as a Muslim in election 08′, as she knows a population of whites fear Muslims and will vote against him because of it, or Sharon Angle of Nevada who is also a Republican with her racist campaign commercials about immigration which aired this past season. Or the republican Governor in Arizona wanting all immigrants out of her state. Lets not forget President Bushes right wing Christian political party- the “Republicans” who discredit voters in housing projects, attempted to ruin Acorn in smear campaigns to be certain Democrats lose in the elections and imposing a opinion on the public which paints a base of voters for “Obama” as welfare recipients. And G.W. Bush doesn’t know how his party runs their campaigns? He funds them. G.W. Bush cares? At some point you have to make it seem like you do. Does anybody remember G.W. Bush insulting John McCain for having a black child? I do- so does John McCain’s daughter. xoxo MikeAlike (independent recording artist)
