Kanye West

Kanye West ignored late night host Jimmy Kimmel who asked him about his friend President Donald Trump. Kanye made his first appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! since he went on a Twitter rant about Kimmel in 2013.

Kanye agreed to appear on Kimmel's show after the two men settled their beef that started in 2013 when Kimmel taunted the Grammy-winning music producer for declaring he was the No. 1 rock star on the planet.

During his August 9 appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Kanye remained silent as the anti-Trump talk show host criticized the president for separating families at the border.

"There are families being torn apart at the border of this country. Whether we like his personality or not, his actions are what matter," Kimmel told Kanye. "You so famously, and so powerfully said, ‘George Bush doesn’t care about black people.’ What makes you think that Donald Trump does -- or any people at all?"

But Kanye refused to be tricked into speaking negative about the president, who is credited with the lowest Black unemployment rate in history.

Kanye's silence was deafening, as Kimmel cut to a commercial. “Why don’t we take a break,” Kimmel said as Kanye smiled.

    That's one mentally ill soul.

    I wonder how many meds he was hopped up on during that interview.

  • xenaD

    Great job Kimmel... lol
    Kanye we need answers
    Talking about he cannot say anything negative about Trump... why not? ?

    it wasn't a "trick question" ...it was straightforward and also valid. FOH!

  • Scromes1212

    That was some tom foolery smh late night shows don't just randomly go to commercial break, Jimmy knew he was about to go to break smh and when a celebrity or someone get asked to do a interview for a show they tell you the questions there going to ask before hand smh cut it out. Kanye clearly didn't expect that question.

  • SpillyNillie

    Kanye thinks he's a genius. To bolster this claim, he feels the need to think that his thoughts are not "common" like those of the Black community. He has to prove that he thinks above and beyond our level.

    But yet, his wife is out here making moves for Black women wrongly imprisoned by the Criminal Justice System. Maybe that's the goal - allowing his wife to shine. Who knows.

    But what I DO know...He's lost. He's gone. He's in a sunken place.

  • Scromes1212

    He cared enough to listen to his wife and free a black woman that has been trying to explain to anybody that would listen that she was wrongly convicted. JS

  • supastar

    cuckoo cuckoo! Kim has ruined him. while shes running around making her brand bigger hes losing his mind.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    That Ninja gone ... ?? ain't nobody home.. . just a vessel ....

  • Scromes1212

    If he is not a musical genius than who is? Just because you don't like him doesn't take away from his talent.

  • MissHarlem

    Officially a decade since I been over you Ye. Good riddance and scram.

  • Scromes1212

    It's all about black excellence til they don't agree with you smh

  • Mints

    He's been gone. The Kardashian curse is real

    What was he supposed to answer to a blatantly stupid question in the first place?

  • Coy little wink
  • Renee26

  • RaginB

    He ain’t have the answers!!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    his handlers said no. .. speak nicely about Trump .. Do as you're told. . Handlers control the mind lol

  • $255880266

    Oh look at you.. you found a picture. So proud of you! That must have taken a lot of effort!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    No, he's been gone since his mom died.

  • hi-liter

    Sway!

  • Coy little wink
  • hi-liter

    That's MF Shame!!! Ye doesn't know why he supports Dump other than they are both Rich Azzholes.

  • TOO REAL

    He's married to Kim which shows he's already brain dead. Leave the mentally ill alone. All but STRUMP

  • Jennifer

    Miles, Coltrane, Curtis Mayfield, Rick James, Prince....

  • shelly

    Sandra your Trump ignorance is showing. Black unemployment is not down that’s Trumps lies. If you can’t be impartial you should not blog.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Dead ????

  • Bdot

    Who gives a damn what this clown thinks or has to say about anything. When he wants attention, he'll bark again.

  • deadellamore

    KOONYE

  • SpillyNillie

    Musically, Kanye is definitely in lane of his own. Always has been. However that same level of intellect and creativity is not present when he speaks about real world issues, especially the Black community.

  • hi-liter

    Ye has NO Substance, he can wear that maga hat but he doesn't know why he wears it. Say what you want, but the Question that Kimmel asked was Legit! Did Charlamagne pose that question in his interview? I would bet he didn't.

  • Ryan

    I literally just thought "Aww man Koonye." When he married a doggone kardashian I knew his mind was gone.

  • Bdot

    Lol @ "who is credited with the lowest black unemployment rate in history"

    In the history of what, bullshit statistics?

  • Li-Wright

    I saw the interview and 90% of what he said made sense. He's not as crazy as people make out and he's super-rich, heading towards a billionaire. I think that KimK and her mom helped him a lot. I dunno, but they're still married. It must be working.

  • Scromes1212

    I was speaking on the living musical geniuses. All those you named had issues. Very severe issues mentally. Only difference between them and Ye is Trump smh it's crazy how a mans opinion can blind people to his musical genius smh

  • SpiceGirl

    lol....yup...she has the complexion for protection too...js

  • Ryan

    I was gonna ask what unbiased source that info came from.

  • Itzgoingdown

    Some people also think your sexual orientation is a mental illness. “shrugs” Your sexual orientation IS NOT more important than Black Economic, Academic and Social Progress.

    Black liberalism does not work, never has worked and never will work because it’s roots are based in socialism which is anti black entrepreneurialship, horrible ghetto public education, anti Christianity and anti heterosexual marriage. Malcolm, was socially conservative, Martin was socially conservative, Black Wall street was socially conservative and the entire continent of Africa is socially conservative. Liberalism is not our culture, fact.

  • SpillyNillie

    Being from Louisiana, I remember it like it was yesterday when Ye stood in front of the world and said "George Bush does not care about Black people." His statement was in response to Bush's slow response to send needed aid and assistance to Hurricane Katrina victims in New Orleans.

    Fast forward, Ye is now supporting Trump who we KNOW doesn't give a damn about Black people. Where's the LOGIC???

  • Scromes1212

    What? She is a black lady smh

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Kanye looks handsome and well!!! (Still in that hole) !!! Trying to stay positive!!!

  • Coy little wink

    What does being rich mean? Is that all we are to strive for...

  • Jennifer

    It all depends on what is viewed as musical genius. Dr Dre and Kanye have a great ability to merge sampled music with a contemporary sound. The people I named created music in their minds, and transposed it to our ears. James Brown and George Clinton are the musical geniuses that made people like Kanye great producers.

    But I totally get your point.

  • Scromes1212

    He is a musical genius not a politician. Others just choose not to speak or they take positions on a topic that are safe. He has just decided to speak his mind.

  • SpillyNillie

    He does look well. Skin all smooth and Black.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Ha,ha,ha!!

    Kanye is in quicksand and going down quickly.

  • hi-liter

    I'm pretty sure he got his nose and face powered before he came on stage.

  • hi-liter

    Why upvote your own comment?

  • SpiceGirl

    lol...I was talking about Kim hun

  • Logan Roberts

    I love a man with a fresh haircut, even if it's Kanye.

  • Scromes1212

    Lol my bad

  • Bdot

    Don't you mean that he's not as crazy as HE MAKES HIMSELF out to be? People have been more/less calling Conye as he presents himself. C'mon now

  • hi-liter

    Just a rich Empty ass soul.

  • Scromes1212

    It's debatable, but I get what your saying. James brown didn't write music or know how to read music. Kanye can arrange, write and read music. Not to take away from JB but all musical geniuses have a area of expertise.

  • Carrington

    He prides himself on being outspoken yet, when asked about Trump... suddenly he's PC? He had no problem speaking out against Bush though. Typical narcissist... the most powerful man in the land said that he likes him... and he wants to keep it that way.

  • shelly

    Fox News probably

  • Bri

    He’s been seething with jealousy ever since Obama soned him for Jayz.

  • dru and neil

    I don’t think he likes to be challenged! He just wants to run that mouth without anyone countering any of his simple minded statements.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    He can't just answer one question. He goes on and on, his arms are folded like he's angry he's there. Sometimes what he says doesn't even answer the question Jimmy asked. He is not that once confident guy that was passionate and deliberate in his speaking or thoughts. I don't know if it's the meds, the breakdown, or he's just.... gone. But this is sad to watch. Slavery was a choice, but he can't answer Trump questions.... It doesn't seem like Kim cares about this dude one way or another. I don't even think she loves him anymore. Just staying with him until the perfect time to bounce. Maybe get enough dirt on him so he won't take the kids or something. This is so sad because he wanted this woman so bad, and she really wanted Reggie Bush. Okay, I was rambling on, let me read the comments you guys wrote earlier.

  • https://www.instagram.com/nymagee/ Ny MaGee

    "the lowest Black unemployment rate in history."--> LMMFAO. Sure.

  • Cocoa Rose

    So why are the Africans allowing the Chinese to now come in and takeover. Also, Europe is full of socialist countries that were able to do so off of the back of pillaging and under-developing Africa. The real problem is WHITE inferiority aka White supremacy.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    He don't wanna leave though...

  • Meme

    Well omorosa claims trump had a special predilection for the n** word, he used this on numerous occasions and yet she kept her lips zipped about this until he gave her the old heave ho now she speaks of it

  • andrice

    The rant of a narcissist

  • Bri

    The show can do whatever the boss wants it to do. He didn’t answer when Charlamagne asked him that too. He had months go come up with something! Smh.

  • EasyBreezy

    ....,and you compromised your values, beliefs, and character (used loosely) and CONTINUED to work for him. Chile, we did not send for you. Bye. And for my black and brown skinfolk who insist on buying that 'book' (used loosely), bye to you, too.

  • Carrington

    He has mastered the art of selling his "genius" to people when he goes unchallenged. He was very successful at steering the questions toward where he wanted them to go because he had "genius" responses prepared. When he's caught off guard and gets hit with REAL questions, people suddenly realize how stupid he is.

    Letter from Trump’s Washington

    It’s True: Trump Is Lying More, and He’s Doing It on Purpose

    By Susan B. Glasser

  • Miss Thang

    He's seriously the most annoying person alive. Even his stupid face annoys me.

  • SpillyNillie

    THIS! Can't make this point enough...

  • Miss Thang

    She really believed in him. Omorosa is conservative. A lot of conservative Christians are now learning who the real Donald Trump is.

  • EasyBreezy

    OM is an educated former hood rat who REALLY came up via a quality education, a strong command of the social graces, and well-placed, well-heeled connections. That's awesome! You are correct, she is conservative. She did NOT believe DJT (IMO); she rode his coattail as the lone (or few) people of color. Regrettably, she rode it a bit too long and got dogged the f**k out- publically. In other words, she got 'got,' before she got to leave on her own terms.

  • JENNYJONES1

    JIMMY WILL LET YOU TALK AND TALK, TALKING YOURSELF INTO A HOLE THEN PRODUCE RECEIPTS TO SHUT YOU THE FVCK UP!!!! I LOVE SOME JIMMY. LOL!!!!

  • Kbellaluvvs

    He has always looked like his breath stanks to me but I still bump Graduation full album.

  • EasyBreezy

    I am with you the fresh haircut. Sooo sexy! However, Kanye has not grieved for his mom and, without that process, it is extremely difficult to move forward emotionally and mentally. You recall Kanye and his mom were thick as thieves, her unfortunate death was sudden, and he believes (based on past interviews) he could have convinced her not to have the procedure(es) that lead to her death. These days, he appears medicated IMO.

  • EasyBreezy

    I knew Kanye was gone when he left that beautiful, smart, chocolate lawyer he was engaged to in order to run around with Amber Rose. You know the rest of the story.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Delusion has heightened under the Trump admin. His base fire off lies and half-truths on a daily.

    He is off his medicine. Lol!

  • Ryan

    LOL!!

  • BingBangBoom

    Lmao that dude in the space suit triggered Kanye. Made him a bit uncomfortable.
    We have to do better in handling the mentally ill in the entertainment business. This is crazy how folks are treating this guy. He needs more help and not to be exposed as someone he may not even be. People called Pac crazy as well for going on and on.

  • pure_rachet

    Body language and eye contact is so off!! I couldn't watch all but he should not have done this appearance.

  • Miss3rdWard

    That part.

  • Miss3rdWard

    The family of my ex (and me) believe he has Paranoid Schizophrenia (because of his symptoms and his father was formally diagnosed with it). The way you describe Kanye's body language and answering questions were some of the first symptoms everyone noticed. But the onset is usually in your early 20s (ex was around 21 when he really started tripping) and Kanye is almost or in his 40s. So I'm pretty sure he's been off some meds or something for a while. You're right... Kim K. and fam DEFINITELY don't care about Mr. West.

  • Miss3rdWard

    Kanye needs his meds. Kim and her fam are gonna let him keep spiraling downward until he hits rock bottom. When he does, they're going to drop him off at the group home with Lamar Odom, Rob Kardashian, Bruce Jenner, Kris Humphries, and all the other men they sacrificed to whatever god they believe in, smh.

  • Miss3rdWard

    It's a coven!

  • DETROITTOATL

    I feel bad for Kanye, that man hasn't been right since before his Mom died. He got worse after. It also seems that any man these women get a hold of end up in a bad way.

  • Tiff J

    He's a free thinker... he doesn't have to answer the questions asked of him cause his mind is just a fluid flow of free thoughts. And hugs.... thoughts and hugs.... that's what Kanye is giving. LOL

  • Li-Wright

    If you watch the whole interview, he was quite lucid and made a lot of sense, most of the time.

  • abby500

    To me, he didn’t make a lot of sense. It’s like he tries to be so deep and cerebral to where he really isn’t saying anything of substance.

  • abby500

    I think Jimmy let him off the hook with the commercial break. It was a fair question seeing how he blasted George W.

  • Fated4greatness

    The lights are on but nobody's home. Bye Koonye

  • more

    You just made sense of why it's difficult for me to understand what he is saying. I am a fan but when he speaks he speaks in circles

  • more

    I understood what you're saying and it sounds good in theory but you have to take into account what's happened to black people in the past you can't just ignore that and just have free flowing thought

  • more

    Nailed it!

  • SemajBeyPhilly

    Kanye would’ve made excuses had he answered. Just like Sandra did with the “unemployment” rate for black people.

  • Applebootay

    I haven't been able to get over the slavery comment just yet. But I love him...my empathetic soul mourns for people dealing with mental health especially if it was brought on by his Mother's death and we The Chicago Black Delegation would like to keep Kanye.....for now.....

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    And remember..., HE and his MAMA said that he was a 'genius'. Nobody else gave him that title. Then his fans jumped on board and started saying he was. Let's be honest shall we, he is simply a good rapper with dope beats.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    He ain't even rich no more. Remember begging the Facebook guy for some money. Remember him talking about being in debt? He does what Kim says because Kim got the coins, not him.

  • hi-liter

    Bish ass Still harboring feelings from when Obama called him a Jackass.....That's why he supports maga.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    No wonder people call him Koonye West.

    I feel you in the rest of these fools but Kris Humphries gave them the blues. He wasn't having none of the fukkery

  • RespectSelf

    lmao omg... folks still talking about the slavery comment as if he really... actually said that slaves chose to be slaves.... That's simple. But then folks really want to act like Kanye was never crazy lol Folks was still rocking with him with he clearly was on the crazy side when he made his Bush comment lol It was all in his face. Let me him live.... He likes the fact that Trump talks of whole lot a crap and ACTUALLY made it to the White house. lol..... someone like Trump is actually the president. Let us stop acting like her agrees with everything Trump does.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Thank you for showing up with what I wanted to say but couldn't quite articulate it properly.

  • Reenaface

    Which is why I was like go head Younnes ''Kourtney's ex". Dude said the Kards were trying to make him out to be the bad guy, and that he was just having fun with one of his lady friends. He said that he is not attached to the Hollywood life and it does not matter what vicious lies the koven spreads. He had a life before them and he'll have one after them, he keeps God first and fk the rest.????

  • DeJeri

    Pac wasn't crazy. He was lucid and his lyrics made sense. IMO...

  • DeJeri

    Stephen Hawking was a genius. If we're speaking about music Curtis Mayfield, Prince, Jimmy Hendrix, geniuses. You got to be an idiot to think he's a genius.

  • DeJeri

    They're not good enough to bump elbows in the White House. The only reason they're getting attention now is because a reality star who debased the meaning of the office was elected. I looked at that photo of Kim and the Donald in the oval office and thought...WOW...how far we've fallen....

    You call that lucid? He was obviously heavily medicated.

    Do you even take the time to research or do you prefer being uninformed?

    In June, the Black unemployment rate fell below 6% for the first time since the government started keeping records in 1972. That's a FACT.

    Trump's ICE agents are raiding factories and restaurants and deporting illegals who take jobs from Black people. That's a FACT.

    What are the Democrats doing for you?

    https://money.cnn.com/2018/06/01/news/economy/black-unemployment-rate-record-low/index.html

  • Jeloi

    Fake News!! Got that from Trump Sandra!

  • TMW

    I found ONE story where an ICE raid in a bakery in Chicago resulted in higher wages and more jobs for blacks.

    Even though then black unemployment rate is lower, it’s still the highest among all people.

    And there are many factors that contribute to the unemployment rate being lower, like there being LESS jobs available. Companies are downsizing and eliminating positions, so there are less positions overall. I think that’s more the tell tale of Trump’s administration - companies are bracing for the impact of the tariffs and every other retarded thing going on with that administration. Hell, it’s a revolving door - he can’t even keep people employed! Good grief!

    What jobs have Trump created? What did he directly contribute to blacks getting jobs? All those jobs he promised wouldn’t leave the county, left anyway.

    The drop in employment can not be contribute to nothing trump has done. This talking point is nothing more than untrue tales told by his supporters. Name one policy that can be contribute to the drop.
