Here are some select quotes from last night’s Matt Lauer interview with George W. Bush, ahead of the release of his memoirs, which come out today. The man is still, indeed, a solid source of comedy.


  • “After 9/11, we were in-you-indated with threats. A lot of threats.”

  • “There’s a lot of psychobible out there that he and I compete, that W. is trying to overshadow his father.”

    Out of Context Quotes

  • “My mom’s a straightforward person. She says to her teenage son, ‘Here’s the fetus.’”

  • “What is sex like, after 50?”

  • “You’re not immersed in the job until the CIA comes in and says, ‘Mr. President, here’s your intelligence.’”

  • “Uhhh. I just didn’t have any intelligence.”


  • “It was one of the most disgusting moments of my presidency … It was the worst moment of my Presidency.” (in re: Kanye West’s “George Bush doesn’t like black people” comment).
