Trump praises Kanye West after Kimmel appearance

Lil Wayne Logic and Ty Dolla $ign read 'Mean Tweets' on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

Jimmy Kimmel lightly grilled Kanye West about his bff President Donald Trump on his ABC late night show on Thursday, a few times leaving the rapper husband of reality TV star Kim Kardashian at a loss for words.

"Just as a musician, African-American, guy out in Hollywood - you know, all these different things - everyone tried to pick my candidate for me", he told the show's host, Jimmy Kimmel. "And saying, 'You can't bully me.' Liberals can't bully me, news can't bully me, the hip hop community can't bully me", said Kanye. "He's like, 'What happened?' I'm like, 'I burned my leg on the motorcycle and I didn't want to tell you.' He's like, 'How long ago?' I'm like, 'Four miles!'" "That's what makes Ye", Kanye added - Watch the full interview below!

"#KanyeWest tries to stand up for trump and #JimmyKimmel shuts em up with facts", one fan tweeted.

"What's the point in being Kanye West if you can't?"

While he was particularly stumped after Kimmel brought up his "George Bush doesn't care about black people" comment in reference to Trump, there were otherwise no tiresome moments during the interview, thanks to some memorable quotes and explanations. OK, maybe not on Twitter and that one time he called slavery "a choice," but West doesn't do many interviews.

At least two separate anti-white nationalist rallies will also be taking place in Lafayette Park. A anti-fascist protest in Charlottesville on Saturday passed off with little trouble.

Kanye West knows it's important for him to talk openly about his mental health issues, especially as a member of the black community.

Following that awkward pause and a brief commercial break, West made seized the opportunity to make himself clear. "There are literally families being torn apart as a result of what this president is doing".

Kimmel, a near nightly critic of President Donald Trump, hammered the performer over his support for Trump, whom West once described in a tweet as "my brother".

The idea of West sitting down for three entire segments of Jimmy Kimmel Live-an interview the artist requested-makes it feel as though Yeezy has something significant to tell the world.

Then a camera focused on West, whose gaze, aimed high, became still, and whose arms were folded. When they return the conversation was moved to discussing West's recent album Ye, Pitckfork reports. In fact, he thought it was a shame that more people don't love Trump.
