Paul McCartney should “apologize to the American people” says Congressman
Hollywoodnews.com: Sir Paul McCartney made a comical jab at former President George W. Bush in accepting a Gershwin Price – and now a U.S. Congressman wants him to apologize.
After receiving his prize for songwriting from President Barack Obama, McCartney, 67, exclaimed “After the last eight years, it’s great to have a president who knows what a library is.”
“Getting this prize would just be good enough, but getting it from this president…I don’t think there could be anything more special than to play here,” McCartney said.
House Minority Leader, Republican John Boehner was ticked off over McCartney’s favoritism for Obama and is now demanding that the former Beatles performer issue an apology according to the U.K.’s Daily Telegraph.
“I hope he’ll apologize to the American people for his conduct which demeaned him, the White House and President Obama,” exclaimed Boehner.
Despite McCartney’s slight, President Bush was reportedly a voracious reader in the White House, steeped in historical knowledge.
