WATCH: Kanye West Challenged On His Support For Trump
Kanye West was at a loss for words Thursday when he was challenged about his support for U.S. president Donald Trump on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
During a 2005 telethon in support of victims of Hurricane Katrina, the rap star – standing next to Canadian actor Mike Myers – famously said “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.”
On Thursday, Kimmel asked West: “It makes me wonder, what makes you think that Donald Trump does?”
West said nothing and Kimmel went to a commercial break.
The segment had its share of bizarre moments, with the rapper sharing his thoughts on various topics – at one point comparing himself to Galileo.
West also spoke about the importance of having conversations about mental health, especially in the black community. “We never had therapists in the black community,” he said.
There were more lighthearted moments during the interview. West said he would love to design the uniforms for Trump’s new “space force” and agreed that he was a nervous about his wife Kim Kardashian being alone with Trump in the Oval Office.
“He is a player,” West quipped.
