Kanye West’s Interview On ‘Kimmel’ Was About As Bizarre As You’d Expect

Share

Host Jimmy Kimmel questioned West about his unwavering support of U.S. President Donald Trump, wondering how that was possible considering West's very public chastising of former president George W. Bush in 2005.

"It represented overcoming fear and doing what you felt no matter what anyone said, and saying, "You can't bully me". I think the breakthrough of that album...is to have a song called "I Thought About Killing You" in this super-PC, Hollywood, you-can't-say-nothin'-wrong day and age" - on the creation of the intro song off his album Ye.

Tweeting from his New Jersey golf course on Friday night, the president said: "Thank you to Kanye West and the fact that he is willing to tell the TRUTH".

Musician Kanye West is still aboard the Trump train it seems.

West was hospitalized in November 2016 for exhaustion and sleep deprivation, sources close to the rapper told ABC News at the time.

After a bunch of slowly unravelling statements about love, "future class", and balancing cheque books, Kimmel asked "Whether we like his personality or not, his actions are really what matter".

"They're committed to one another... and you're not always going to agree with each other forever".

Jimmy Kimmel asked Ye if his attitudes towards women had changed drastically since having his daughter, North West.

Kanye West came under fire in May when he put on a MAGA hat, posted for a picture, and then told employees at the TMZ offices that slavery was a "choice" before sharing his support for President Donald Trump.

"She's super passionate about it, and it was unbelievable for her to see that dream come true", said West. Kimmel then asked a rather awkward question: "Were you ever concerned about her being alone in the Oval Office with President Trump?".

With his arms crossed and gaze fixed upwards, the rapper went silent for a few beats.

But Kanye could answer questions about love and fear.
