Kanye West on Saturday denied that he was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Stumbled when the host asked the rapper about his support for President Trump.
West turned to Twitter to read reports that he was "perplexed" during the game making his appearance on Thursday night when host Jimmy Kimmel asked the rapper why he thought Trump was looking after black people. The host repeated West's notorious comment in 2005 when he said former President George W. Bush did not care about blacks.
West seemed to take a long break before Kimmel suggested going into the commercial break. When they returned, West did not answer the question.
The 41-year-old rapper tweeted on Saturday that he "had no chance to answer the question."
"On Jimmy Kimmel, we had a great time to have a dialogue, I read that I was taken by surprise by a question, let me clear the click bait, I was not at a loss, I had no chance to answer the question answer, "said West.
"The question was so important that I took time to think, and then I was hit in the business in one fell swoop – this interview showed strong people with different opinions having a civil conversation," he tweeted in a second contribution.
KANYE WEST DEFENDS HIS SUPPORT FOR TRUMP: "LIBERALS CAN NOT BE POSSIBLE TO ME & # 39;
West said earlier In this segment, he would not be "harassed" by the left because he supported the president.
"Like a musician, an African American, a guy in Hollywood, all those different things, you know, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me," said the Chicago rapper to Kimmel. "And then I said to myself every time that I liked Trump, that I could not say it out loud or that my career was over, I would be kicked out of the black community because blacks – we should have a monolith I think we can just as we can only be Democrats. "
West has maintained his vocal support for Trump since the 2016 presidential election. On Saturday, West said that there are no hard feelings between him and Kimmel despite their differing views.
"I was so happy to see Jimmy walking in the Yeezys, it was an olive branch, it was a love affair, I appreciate Jimmy and his team, you are Jedis, a lot of love," West tweeted.
