Jimmy Kimmel Stumps Kanye West With A Question About Donald Trump's Actions

The G.O.O.D. Music leader does discuss his music, his family, his bipolar disorder, and more.

(AllHipHop News) Kanye West made his highly anticipated return to Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night. Of course, the topic of Donald Trump was brought up during the interview, and the outspoken entertainer responded to the backlash he received for expressing his support for the polarizing president.

"You can't bully me. Liberals can't bully me, the news can't bully me, the Hip Hop community can't bully me. Because at that point, if I'm afraid to be me, I'm no longer Ye," said West. "I actually quite enjoy when people are mad at me about certain things."

The Calabasas, California resident also talked about his wife Kim Kardashian, living in a simulation, his slavery comments on TMZ, his bipolar diagnosis, and more. At one point, Kimmel asked Kanye why he believes Trump will institute policies to help African-Americans when he called out President George Bush in 2005.

"There are families being torn apart at the border of this country. There are literally families being torn apart as a result of what this president is doing. I think that we cannot forget that. Whether we like his personality or not, his actions are really what matters," expressed Kimmel. "You so famously and so powerfully said George Bush doesn't care about black people. Makes me wonder, what makes you think Donald Trump does? Or any people at all?"

Kanye didn't respond. Instead, the host cut to a commercial break. When the show returned, the conversation switched to the 41-year-old's children. They also discussed the lyrics on the Ye album, suicide, and pornography.
