Kanye West Says He Was Not Stumped by Trump Question

Kanye West Says He Was Not Stumped by Trump Question

Kimmel responded: "Not every question warrants an immediate answer".

He continued, "The question was so important I took time to think". "Clark, let that new "XTCY " joint go! So". "That interview showed strong personalities with different opinions having a civil conversation". On Twitter, West said he was not stumped, but was just taking his time to think about the question.

West, still not answering the Kimmel's question, went on to say, "I was so happy when I saw Jimmy walk out in the Yeezys".

On Thursday, the controversial rapper and fashion designer spoke with Jimmy Kimmel about his support for Trump explaining that other people can not control his actions.

"As a musician, African-American. everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me", he said, suggesting there was a perception that "blacks can only be Democrats".

Kimmel had earlier asked West if he was anxious about his wife, Kim Kardashian West, being alone with the president in the Oval Office during a recent visit.

'Were you ever concerned about her being alone in the Oval Office with President Trump?' Kimmel asked.

During Thursday's JKL episode, Kimmel reminded West about his infamous 2005 moment when he said President George W. Bush "doesn't care" about black people during a telethon to raise money for Hurricane Katrina victims. "It makes me wonder, what makes you think that Donald Trump does, or any people at all?"

Ultimately, Kanye defended the president and asked people to "try love".

The interview also toggled between light-hearted jokes and serious talks about West's mental disorder. The sisters get a mention in the song's semi-pornographic lyrics: "You got sick thoughts?" I got more of 'em / You got a sister-in-law you would smash?

Back in May he appeared on TMZ's show and infamously said: 'You were there for 400 years and it's all of y'all.

"Liberals can't bully me; news can't bully me; the hip-hop community, they can't bully me".

At one point, Kanye described a very altruistic (and somewhat naive) view of the nation.

Kimmel then insisted that he actually didn't need to answer that but the Life Of Pablo hitmaker stood firm.

The song marks West's first release since his barrage of five albums by or produced by him released within five weeks: Pusha T's "Daytona", his own "Ye" - celebrated with an all-star listening session in Wyoming - his Kids See Ghosts collaboration with Kid Cudi, Nas' "Nasir" and arguably the best of the batch, Teyana Taylor's "K.T.S.E".

'A lot of black on white, obviously'.
