  • Donald Trump and Kanye West made a splash with surprise meeting in December 2016

"'Clark, let that new "XTCY" joint go!'" West retweeted the link soon afterward.

Kayne West sat down with Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday night for an exceptionally candid, 21-minute-long interview in which 'Ye made a puzzling case for his support of President Donald Trump that ultimately proved to be futile when pressed on actual issues. "And then told me every time I said I liked Trump that I couldn't say it out loud or my career would be over", West told Kimmel. "Let me clarify the click bait".

This had been the first time West appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, five years after their Twitter feud.

"That interview showed strong personalities with different opinions having a civil conversation", he continued.

Kimmel earlier asked West if he was anxious about his wife, Kim Kardashian West, being alone with the president in the Oval Office.

She acknowledges she had never been able to obtain or hear the tapes but said three unnamed sources had described their contents. The White House responded by slamming the book and its author and chastising the press for writing about it.


The interview also toggled between light-hearted jokes and serious talks about West's mental disorder. "I'd get kicked out of the black community because blacks, we are supposed to have a monolithic thought, we can only be Democrats and all".

The father-of-three went on to address his now infamous TMZ Live interview from May in which he said slavery "sounds like a choice".

"Just as a musician, African-American, guy out in Hollywood, all these different things - you know, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me". It's like we're mentally imprisoned'.

At one point, Kanye described a very altruistic (and somewhat naive) view of the nation.

West responded: 'Nah I still look at Pornhub'.

Kimmel then insisted that he actually didn't need to answer that but the Life Of Pablo hitmaker stood firm. Mirroring his "own reality", he admitted to "a lot of black on white, obviously".
