Clinton called in Pittsburgh's 96.1 Kiss Morning Freak Show's Mikey and Big Bob and talked about Lil Wayne's upcoming release from jail. "I tell you what I think about it, I know this is a funny question to ask me, but my daughter introduced me to rap and hip-hop music after I said some things she thought weren't very smart. This guy is smart and he's got ability and he's got a new chance now," Clinton said about Weezy. "I think a lot of these people, they don't get successful by being really dumb, they're really smart, but a lot of them had tough lives and they almost thing it's cool to get in trouble every now and then or don't know how to stay out. What I hope is that he has a good life now."
As for President Bush, five years after Kanye West made the infamous remark, "George Bush does not care about Black people," during a live telecast, he's finally replied. Bush told NBC's Matt Lauer that 'Ye's comment was "one of the most disgusting moments in my presidency. He called me a racist and I didn't appreciate then. I don't appreciate it now. It's one thing to say, 'I don't appreciate the way he handles business.' It's another thing to say, 'This man's a racist.' I resent it. It's not true."
The full interview with Bush will air on a special prime-time "Matt Lauer Reports" on Nov. 8.
