Republican John Boehner urges the former The Beatles' member to publicly apologize for a joke he made at the former president's expense.

A top U.S. politician is demanding Sir Paul McCartney publicly apologize for a joke he made at former President George W. Bush's expense during an appearance at the White House on Wednesday, June 2.

Republican John Boehner was not amused when former The Beatles' star 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. McCartney said, "After the last eight years, it's great to have a president who knows where the library is."

During his appearance at the White House, McCartney performed some songs, including "Michelle" and "Hey Jude". At the tribute concert for the 67-year-old singer, fellow stars such as Stevie Wonder, Jonas Brothers, Corinne Bailey Rae and Faith Hill were also present and sang some of McCartney's greatest hits.
