Jimmy Kimmel shuts down Kanye West's love for Donald Trump

The wildest takeaways from Kanye’s interview with Jimmy Kimmel

The wildest takeaways from Kanye’s interview with Jimmy Kimmel

Kanye West went awkwardly silent when asked about his views on Donald Trump during a new interview with Jimmy Kimmel.

Earlier in the show, West defended his decision to support Trump, whom he once called his "brother" on social media. Especially with me being black, because we never had therapists in the black community.

"If I can't be me, I can't be Ye and I quite enjoy when people are mad at me about certain things", he said. That's what makes 'Ye.

President Donald Trump thanked Kanye West for his support after West appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Kardashian recently met with Trump to ask the USA leader to pardon Alice Marie Johnson, who had been serving a life sentence for a first-time, non-violent drug offence.

Jimmy Kimmel shuts down Kanye West's love for Donald Trump

The rapper, who once famously claimed that George W. Bush didn't "care about black people", caused anger and confusion in his fan base when he stated just after the election that he would have voted for Trump. "Nothing went down, nothing happened, but then I went to NY and started filming and I was like, 'You're right, I'm miserable". "I think that we can not forget that whether we like his personality or not, his actions are really what matter".

During a wide-ranging interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday night, the 41-year-old rapper revealed more about his bipolar disorder.

West's appearance on the show is the first since his 2013 dispute with Kimmel over a skit mocking Kanye's lengthy BBC Radio 1 interview with Zane Lowe. "They've never heard two people get together and discuss these things without screaming at each other and saying, 'You're a racist; you're a hater; I gotta shut you down, you're the enemy'". So I see him backstage. During an interview that covered everything from Yeezys to philosophy, Kanye addressed his support of Donald Trump, an act that he says comes from a place of "love", not fear. After mentioning family separations at the border, Kimmel asked what made West think that Trump cared about black people "or any people at all". "[I don't have extreme periods of depression] because I just say it".

"I think it's good that when I had my first complete blackout at age 5, my mom didn't fully medicate me", he continued.
