George W. Bush: ‘The Truth of the Matter Is, I am Shamelessly Marketing’

In a sit-down with Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg that aired on Facebook Live yesterday, former President George W. Bush talked up his new memoir Decision Points, which currently occupies the number one spot on the New York Times nonfiction bestseller list.

“The truth of the matter is, I am shamelessly marketing,” Bush said. “You got a lot of people paying attention to us, and I’m trying to sell books.” Stay classy.

The FoxNews.com political blog covers the conversation, which is archived on Facebook Live and available after the jump.

Bush also offered some advice to Zuckerberg: “It’s important not to be book smart and sidewalk stupid. In other words, you get so caught up in kind of intellectual airiness that you can’t be a commonsensical person. And I’ve always remembered that for some reason.”

Maybe that will come in handy during the Groupon talks.
