Bush memoir includes some unexpected moments

And the worst moment of his presidency? When charges of racism were flung at him over Hurricane Katrina.

In an interview with NBC’s “Today” show, to be aired on Monday, Bush says he hit an ”all-time low” after critics like rapper Kanye West said his handling of the disaster showed that “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.”

That comment still rankles Bush. “I didn’t appreciate it then. I don’t appreciate it now,” he tells NBC.

“I resent it, it’s not true,” he said of the accusation of racism. “And it was one of the most disgusting moments in my presidency.”
