Kanye West's awkward silence while defending Trump on 'Jimmy Kimmel'

Kanye West's awkward silence while defending Trump on 'Jimmy Kimmel'

Kimmel also asked about West's wife Kim Kardashian going to meet with Trump to advocate for the release of Alice Marie Johnson from prison. I'd get kicked out of the Black community because Blacks-we're supposed to have a monolithic thought, we can only like, we can only be Democrats and all.

But as West told Kimmel Thursday, "I quite enjoy when people actually are mad at me about certain things".

"She's super passionate about it, and it was wonderful 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?".

"It represented overcoming fear and saying, 'You can't bully me.' Liberals can't bully me. One by one by one, we can diffuse this nuclear bomb of hate of society by thinking of everyone as our family and how we treat our kids", West said.

Referring to the abbreviation of his first name that provides the title of his latest album, he went on: "If I'm afraid to be me, I'm no longer Ye".

The interview marked Kanye's first appearance on the chat show since 2013, when he appeared to end his social media feud with Kimmel.

But the jokes stopped when West brought up the backlash he faced when he threw his support behind Trump a few months ago.

"Just in literal terms, there are families being torn apart at the border of the country-there are literally families being torn apart as a result of what this president is doing", Kimmel says. Said Wale's tweet, "I just farted and it smelled like Wale's entire discography".

He went on to explain that "it took me a year and a half to have the confidence to stand up and put on the hat, no matter what the consequences were".

Kanye West was silent when it comes to whether he thinks President Donald Trump cares for black people.

When pressed about Trump's policies and how West once said that President George W. Bush doesn't care about Black people but that it doesn't seem as though the current president cares about any people, the outspoken West paused for longer than a moment, and Kimmel made a decision to send the show to commercial. "We never approached taking a medication".
