Former Beatles star Paul McCartney took a cheap shot at George W. Bush Wednesday evening after receiving an award from Barack Obama.
McCartney was honored in the East Room of the White House by the President, his family, and a star-studded guest list that included Stevie Wonder, Dave Grohl, Faith Hill, the Jonas Brothers, Jack White, Elvis Costello, Emmylou Harris, Herbie Hancock, Corinne Bailey Rae, and Jerry Seinfeld.
After receiving the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, McCartney told the audience, "After the last eight years, it's good to have a president that knows what a library is" (video follows with commentary):
Potentially even more disgraceful, those in the audience wildly applauded after McCartney made this disgusting comment.
Isn't that special?
Two weeks ago, a Mexican president got cheered by Democrats in Congress when he insulted Arizona's governor and every American that supports that state's new anti-illegal immigration law.
Days later, a British pop star insults our 43rd president -- while being honored by our nation in THE WHITE HOUSE!!! -- and those in attendance think it's a riot.
Makes you proud to be an American, doesn't it?
Post facto exit question: McCartney is touring America this summer. Will this comment help or hurt ticket sales? (Source)
