While appearing on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Thursday, rapper Kanye West said he faced initial pushback over his support for President Donald Trump and took about a year and a half before regaining his confidence to take a strong stand. "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.
"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". "That's what makes Ye", Kanye added - Watch the full interview below! Kanye, of course, has spent the year reiterating his support for Trump: professing his love for the president, rocking a MAGA hat, celebrating the "dragon energy" they allegedly share, et al. When Kimmel returned, the pair moved on to new topics and didn't revisit the issue of supporting Trump.
In the past Kanye West has publicly called the U.S. president his brother and claimed that the pair share "dragon energy". West can surely thank Kimmel for the rescue.
"There are families being torn apart at the border of this country", Kimmel said. "So I want to prove that you can get fat, you can say the wrong things, you can piss a f*cking city off".
Since then, West's wife-reality TV star Kim Kardashian West-met with Trump to ask for clemency on behalf of nonviolent drug offender Alice Marie Johnson.
At the end of their discussion, Kanye told Kimmel that approaching the president with love will help fix America's problems, saying, "When I see people just even, like, go at the president, it's like, why not try love?" "They keep us so focused on history till we actually believe it repeats itself. and we can't advance as a race of beings", he told Kimmel.
Lost for a response, Kanye sat silently with his arms crossed, pondering a response that never came.
Last night, Kanye explained why he wouldn't hide his love for the Trumpster but also went silent when questioned about the head of state's recent policies. "I'd be kicked out of the black community".
