Macca refuses to apologise for Bush gag

Posted on: June 26, 2010

Sir Paul McCartney has refused to apologise for a joke he cracked on former President George W. Bush during an appearance at the White House earlier this month.

The Beatles legend poked fun at the ex-leader”s intellect as he became the first non-American to collect the Gershwin Prize for ‘Popular Song’ from Bush”s successor, President Barack Obama.

“After the last eight years, it”s great to have a President who knows where the library is,” Macca said.

This comment by McCartney infuriated top U.S. politician John Boehner, who demanded McCartney make a public apology for the gag.

But the singer has insisted that his comments shouldn”t be taken so seriously – as it was just “a joke”.

“I said that on purpose. And now all this (criticism), like I”m going to care? It was a joke. Hello, anybody there? It”s a joke,” the Daily Express quoted him as saying.

“Has anyone ever watched Saturday Night Live? They joke about Bush all the time. As for a public apology, are they kidding?

“I was in two minds whether to say it and I actually waited until the President had gone because I didn”t want to embarrass him or his family. But hey, come on, it”s rock and roll. It wasn”t a religious meeting and I”m allowed to make jokes,” he added.
