Kayne West defends being a Donald Trump supporter: 'You can't bully me'

Kanye West discusses his mental health, Trump support and why he's like Galileo with Jimmy Kimmel

President Trump thanked Kanye West on Friday for the "Yeezus" rapper's show of support on Jimmy Kimmel's show.

The conversation returned to Trump later in the interview, when Kanye posed the question: "When I see people just even like go at the president, it's like, why not try love?"

Kanye West went awkwardly silent when asked about his views on Donald Trump during a new interview with Jimmy Kimmel.

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

He later went on to say that he hoped more people approached Trump with "love" and not hatred.

However, some are saying Kimmel was out of line with his questioning.

"I spent a year-and-a-half after I got out of the hospital. just chopping up samples and it was very therapeutic, because I wasn't full Ye, I don't know if I'm full Ye now", West said.

Isn't it amusing how the only people Trump doesn't call Fake News are the ones who lavishly praise him?

Asked if he supported Trump, West explained that his previous comments representing having "the confidence to stand up and put on the [Make America Great Again] hat no matter what the consequences were".

Back in April, a few weeks after returning to Twitter, West opened up on Twitter about his "love" for Trump, saying, "You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him". That's what makes Ye. Can I answer the first question you were going to ask me? "And I actually quite enjoy when people actually are mad at me about certain things". And what Kimmel said next left West speechless.

In the end, we don't know if West supports a President who attacks the free press, women, immigrant families, and others, but his point about making personal choices in the face of adversity is spot on.

Some liberals joked that they were happy to hand the controversial Kanye over to conservatives. He also launched into a diatribe about Galileo being an iconoclast, about how "I've never heard of a class that breaks down how you balance a checkbook", and about how people are all "unpaid actors in some giant script that we didn't write".
