West appeared on Thursday night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! and discussed his support for President Donald Trump, suggesting to Kimmel it's more about challenging the opinions of people around him than his thoughts on Trump's actual policies.
"Whether we like his personality or not, his actions are really what matter", Kimmel said.
In April, Kanye tweeted that the "mob" could not make him hate Trump. But after a couple beats, Kimmel offered, "Why don't we take a break". "I think the breakthrough of that album...is to have a song called "I Thought About Killing You" in this super-PC, Hollywood, you-can't-say-nothin'-wrong day and age" - on the creation of the intro song off his album Ye.
Kimmel also asked about West's wife, Kim Kardashian, visiting Trump at the White House earlier this year to help win a commutation for Alice Johnson, a 63-year-old grandmother who had been serving a life sentence for a first-time nonviolent drug offense.
Kanye West knows it's important for him to talk openly about his mental health issues, especially as a member of the black community.
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. "She's like, 'You are so happy right now.' I'm absolutely beaming", Kimmel admitted to GQ.
Lost for a response, Kanye sat silently with his arms crossed, pondering a response that never came.
Kanye has attracted controversy throughout his career, but the chart-topping star thinks it's imperative that people are given the freedom to express themselves. Kanye responded to questions of whether or not his attitude toward women has changed since having daughters by talking about all the porn he watches. "There some cases of bipolar where people go low, I'm one that goes high, like Michelle Obama says". He also famously announced that both he and the president were "dragon energy" and "brothers".
