Kanye West Reacts To Backlash Over Jimmy Kimmel Interview About Trump

Kanye West Drops New Song, ‘XTCY’ (Listen)

"Thank you to Kanye West and the fact that he is willing to tell the TRUTH", Trump said in a tweet from his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf course Friday evening.

If you happened to watch Kanye West's interview with Jimmy Kimmel, the rapper-artist-fashion designer-Dragon Energy haver was left speechless when asked by Jimmy Kimmel why he thinks Donald Trump cares about black people.

West said that he and Kimmel were having "a great time" with their dialogue before the question about Trump came up.

West tilted his head to think, said nothing and the show then went to break. "And then I was hit with the let's go to commercial break", he added. Hell, he could have even made a 25-tweet thread about why he thinks Donald Trump cares about black people. I'm reading that I was stumped by a question.

When asked about Trump's capabilities as president, the rapper instead riffed on the concept of love, saying 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". I wasn't stumped. I wasn't given a chance to answer the question'.

West has been a vocal supporter of President Trump and has been a recipient of backlash because of it.

"I was so happy when I saw Jimmy walk out in the Yeezys".

The talk show host discussed his recent album Ye and the song I Thought About Killing You along with the quote on the album cover which reads: "I hate being biopolar".

Kanye West is basically the unofficial king of controversy.

Earlier in the interview, Kimmel gave West an opportunity to further explain why he supports Trump, a choice that has divided his fan base. "I got four of them", the husband of Kim Kardashian raps in the first verse. And that's when you get these comments that just shoot out, nearly like Tourette's'.

Kanye West visited Donald Trump at the Trump Tower after he was elected.
