Kanye West Describes How He Built Up The Courage to Support Trump

"There are families being torn apart at the border of this country, there are literally families being torn apart as a result of what this president is doing, and I think we can't forget that". At the time, West said he didn't agree 100 percent with Trump, "but the mob can't make me not love him".

That awkward moment of silence prompted Kimmel to cut to commercial break to give Ye rapper some time to gather his thoughts as the audience nervously laughed along.

"I think it is good that when I had my first complete blackout at age five, my mum didn't fully medicate me, I might not have fully been Ye".


Kimmel then asked if West was anxious about his wife privately meeting with Trump in the Oval Office to which West jokingly replied, "Well, he is a player".

It didn't take long for the host to bring up Trump, whom West has vociferously supported in spite of his fans' dislike of the United States president.

Kim Kardashian knew her marriage to Kris Humphries was a bust long before their notorious 72-days were up - and she also knew that she'd rebound pretty quickly with Kanye West, who she says was "heartbroken" at the sight of her wedding ring.


But as West told Kimmel Thursday, "I quite enjoy when people actually are mad at me about certain things". "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", West, 41, added. He notes that it reminded him of what he loves most about music, and took him back to his early music making days at his mother Donda's house in Chicago.

Lost for a response, Kanye sat silently with his arms crossed, pondering a response that never came. "I think they're so committed to one another that things like that probably bring them closer together". "[I don't have extreme periods of depression] because I just say it". I never believed that former president George W. Bush hated Black people, but absolutely doubt the current occupant in the WH cares about us at all.

But some conservatives said they were disappointed with Kanye for "caving" when he had a chance to respond to Kimmel's question.
