Skip to comments.Matt Lauer is a lying scumbag (must-see video)

Rarely am I as outraged by the dying Democrat "mainstream" media as I am today. Usually, inconsequential mice like Lauer can be brushed off like dandruff, but this latest cheap shot at Bush must get a full airing and should be seen by as many people as possible. You will get the idea quickly, within the first minute or so of this YouTube video (link below and above).
In the video you will see Lauer show a portion of his recent interview with Bush during which he asked Bush about Kanye West's declaration in the aftermath of Hurrican Katrina that, "George Bush doesn't like black people." Bush responded:
"It was one of the most disgusting moments of my presidency."
End of clip, and now back at the studio, here is what Lauer looks into the camera and says:
"Here's a two-term president who ran the country during Katrina, 9/11, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the financial meltdown, and he's pointing the finger at Kanye West and that incident as the worst moment in his presidency."
See what Lauer did there? He turned Bush's phrase, "one of the most disgusting moments", into, "the worst moment", in order to paint Bush as being more concerned about the inane rantings of a self-absorbed hip-hop artist than he was about the mass murder of 3,000 Americans, the loss of our best and brightest young people in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Hurricane Katrina, and the economic mess. Watch this video for yourself and keep your blood pressure pills within reach:
Matt Lauer's Disgusting Cheap Shot - the video
I realize that Lauer has never been accused of being the brightest bub in the chandelier, but even if some mischievous newsroom writers chuckled in astonishment when Lauer actually read the script they gave him, Lauer needs to be held to account. (And yes, shame on Bush for ever sitting down with this scumbag Lauer.)
(( ping ))
(Hey, it takes time to put this stuff together.)
I understood everything Bush said. Now that black dude, I didn’t understand one thing he said except “you know what I’m saying”. And the answer to that was no.
By the way, if anybody knows how to save YouTube videos for permanent reference, I have a feeling ABC may want to make this one disappear quickly.
Kanye West is a nincompoop and totally irrelavant to Lauer’s sick cheap shot.
But I agree, West’s ramblings are tough to follow.
Well, Lauer is only preaching to the choir. A choir composed of Bush haters. I watched him once on TV for five minutes and that was all I could stomach. I can truthfully say that I wouldn’t recognize him if he was sitting at the counter next to me in Denny’s.
He’s one of the biggest Bush-haters out there that’s why I was so against W guesting with this ass-clown.
Unfortunately, for eight full years, Bush and his incompetent communications staff catered to the left wing media in hopes of supinely receiving their mercy. And even after leaving office he continues to do so. He should never have granted that worm Lauer an interview. Apparently Bush never learned the old lesson, “Those who sleep with dogs get fleas.”
Does anything Kanye West say really matter?
Lauer? Of the bow-stream media?
I’d love to shoulder bump him at a bar sometime....

I suspect Sarah Palin has learned that lesson. I will be surprised if she ever again sits down with one of these Democrat newsroom mice.
I was thinking along the same line. I have to believe Lauer is one of those little weasels who was always running away from imagined schoolyard bullies like a scared bunny rabbit.
Did you notice how West kept covering his mouth & touching it. The fool seems to be unhappy with his new dental work. Either his mouth hurt, or it embarrassed him, or both.
I would be offended if I took Matt Lauer seriously.
Why Kanye (woman hating, race baiter)West should even be relavent in a conversation about a former, or sitting president eludes me.
For Gosh sakes...he is a rapper!!!
My dog doesn’t make as much money...but he is far more intelligent than Kanye.
Lancey - Google “You Tube Downloader” It’s a free application that lets you download videos. (Usually as a .flv These can be converted to mp4 with Real Player)
GWB was not concerned with what a Kayne West had to say, but rather with what he was accused of.
To be accused of not liking an entire race in the aftermath of one of the worst disasters in US history ought to be “one of the most disgusting moments” in anyone’s presidency.
Lauer is too shallow to comprehend the magnitiude of West’s declaration and its effect on President Bush.
