Kanye West on Donald Trump


YOU’RE INVITED TO BE A PART OF IT. OUR FIRST GUEST IS ONE OF THE MOST TALENTED MEN IN THE WORLD. HE IS A MULTI-AWARD-WINNING RECORDING ARTIST, FASHION DESIGNER AND SHOE SALESMAN. HIS NEW ALBUM IS CALLED “YE.” PLEASE WELCOME KANYE WEST. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] ♪>>Jimmy: FIRST OF ALL — THANKS FOR BEING HERE AND THANK YOU FOR THE SHOES. NOBODY EVER BRINGS ME SHOES, YOU BROUGHT ME SHOES, THAT’S VERY NICE OF YOU, VERY KIND. I’LL TELL YOU A STORY AND THIS IS HONESTLY TRUE. THE LAST TIME, A FEW YEARS AGO YOU SENT ME A PAIR OF YEEZYS. I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE HAD MORE PEOPLE COME UP AND TALK TO ME THAN WHEN I WAS WALKING AROUND IN THEM TO THE POINT WHERE I WAS LIKE, THIS IS CRAZY, I’VE GOT TO GET THESE OFF, PEOPLE ARE CHASING ME. I’M WORRIED PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BEAT ME UP AND TAKE THESE. USUALLY PEOPLE WAIT — I’VE SEEN THEM SLEEPING ON THE STREET WAITING FOR THESE SHOES. IS THAT FOR YOU MORE REWARDING THAN HEARING PEOPLE SAY THEY LIKE YOUR MUSIC?>>BOTH. >>Jimmy: IT’S BOTH, YEAH. SOMETIMES IT’S LIKE THE THING YOU ARE ACCUSTOMED TO HEARING AND YOU START HEARING SOMETHING ELSE, AND IT’S MORE EXCITING TO HEAR SOMETHING ELSE. BUT NOT FOR YOU. >>YEAH, WHEN YOU GO OUT AND DO CREATIVE JOURNEYS, IT IS EXCITING FOR PEOPLE TO APPRECIATE THAT. >>Jimmy: YEAH. >>ESPECIALLY IF PEOPLE, YOU KNOW, DIDN’T THINK THAT IT WAS POSSIBLE. LIKE WHEN I STARTED OFF IN CHICAGO AS AN ARTIST. AS A — I’M A VISUAL ARTIST, I WENT TO ART SCHOOL. >>Jimmy: RIGHT. >>AND I DECIDED TO START DOING MUSIC AND PEOPLE SAID IT WOULDN’T WORK OUT. THEN I STARTED PRODUCING AND SELLING BEATS AND I STARTED SELLING BEATS TO JAY-Z, ROCKA FELLA AND THAT WENT WELL. I SAID I WANTED TO RAP AND PEOPLE SAID THAT WOULDN’T WORK, PRODUCER RAPPER, IT MEANT YOU WOULDN’T RAP AS WELL AS THE REAL RAPPERS. THAT STARTED WORKING OUT. I SAID I WANTED TO DESIGN CLOSES AND THAT STARTED WORKING OUT.>>Jimmy: WHAT’S THE NEXT — WHAT IS NEXT FOR YOU?>>WELL — >>Jimmy: SPACE FORCE? [ LAUGHTER ] [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>I WOULD TOTALLY BE INVOLVED. >>Jimmy: YOU SHOULD DESIGN THE UNIFORMS FOR THE SPACE FORCE. [ LAUGHTER ] IS THAT SOMETHING THAT YOU WOULD DO IF PRESIDENT TRUMP ASKED YOU TO DO THAT?>>I’M INTO DESIGNING. >>Jimmy: YEAH, WHY NOT. [ LAUGHTER ] YOUR WIFE WAS HERE LAST WEEK — >>SPACE FORCE!>>Jimmy: OH MY GOODNESS. SOMEBODY PUT A LEASH ON HIM, WILL YOU? YOUR WIFE WAS HERE LAST WEEK. AND SHE’S VERY NICE. AND SHE DID SOMETHING I WOULD IMAGINE YOU’RE VERY PROUD OF. SHE WENT TO WASHINGTON, SHE SPOKE TO THE PRESIDENT, AND SHE ACTUALLY CONVINCED HIM TO GRANT CLEMENCY TO A WOMAN WHO GOT LIFE IN PRISON, LIKE REAL LIFE IN PRISON, FOR A FIRST-TIME DRUG OFFENSE. WAS THAT SOMETHING YOU DISCUSSED WITH HER BEFORE SHE DID IT?>>SHE’S SUPER PASSIONATE ABOUT IT. AND IT WAS AMAZING FOR TO SEE THAT DREAM COME TRUE. >>Jimmy: WERE YOU EVER CONCERNED ABOUT HER BEING ALONE IN THE OVAL OFFICE WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP? [ LAUGHTER ]>>WELL, HE IS A PLAYER. [ LAUGHTER ] [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>Jimmy: PEOPLE GOT REALLY MAD WHEN YOU WERE — WELL, SOME PEOPLE WERE VERY HAPPY WHEN YOU SAID YOU LIKED PRESIDENT TRUMP. DO YOU LIKE — DO YOU THINK HE IS A GOOD PRESIDENT?>>YOU’RE GOING TO ASK ME — CAN I ANSWER THE FIRST QUESTION?>>Jimmy: ANSWER WHATEVER YOU WANT. >>WELL, YOU KNOW — IT’S FUNNY, YOU KNOW. IN THIS WORLD THAT WE LIVE IN, THERE’S TWO MAIN MOTIVATING FORCES. AND I TWEET ABOUT IT ALL THE TIME. IT’S LOVE OR FEAR. AND YOU CAN’T EXPLAIN LOVE. YOU KNOW, MY COUSIN IS LOCKED UP FOR MURDER. AND I LOVE HIM. SO HE DID A BAD THING BUT I STILL LOVE HIM. AND 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. 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, I’D GET KICKED OUT OF THE BLACK COMMUNITY BECAUSE BLACKS ARE SUPPOSED TO HAVE A MONOLITHIC THOUGHT, WE CAN ONLY BE DEMOCRATS AND ALL. SO — EVEN WHEN I SAID IT RIGHT BEFORE I WENT TO THE HOSPITAL AND I EXPRESSED MYSELF, AND WHEN I CAME OUT I HAD LOST MY CONFIDENCE. SO I DIDN’T HAVE THE CONFIDENCE TO TAKE ON THE WORLD AND THE POSSIBLE BACKLASH. AND IT TOOK ME A YEAR AND A HALF TO HAVE THE CONFIDENCE TO STAND UP AND PUT ON THE HAT. NO MATTER WHAT THE CONSEQUENCES WERE. AND WHAT IT REPRESENTED TO ME IS NOTHING ABOUT POLICIES BECAUSE I’M NOT A POLITICIAN LIKE THAT, BUT IT REPRESENTED OVERCOMING FEAR AND DOING WHAT YOU FELT, NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAID, IN SAYING, YOU CAN’T BULLY ME. LIBERALS CAN’T BULLY ME, NEWS CAN’T BULLY ME, THE HIP-HOP COMMUNITY, THEY CAN’T BULLY ME. AT THAT POINT, IF I’M AFRAID TO BE ME, I’M NO LONGER YE. THAT’S WHAT MAKES YE. I ACTUALLY QUITE ENJOY WHEN PEOPLE ACTUALLY ARE MAD AT ME ABOUT CERTAIN THINGS — >>Jimmy: YOU MUST ENJOY IT, YEAH. [ LAUGHTER ]>>I ACTUALLY QUITE ENJOY IT. >>Jimmy: BECAUSE YOUR WIFE WAS MAD AT YOU, RIGHT? ACCORDING TO YOUR SONG, YOUR WIFE WAS UPSET ABOUT THAT.>>RIGHT OR WRONG, OR EVEN IF I CHANGE MY MIND ABOUT IT OR THOUGHT ABOUT IT MORE, WHICH I’M NOT SAYING I DID — JUST PLACE THE THOUGHT OUT THERE THAT EVERYONE’S BAD THINKING SOMETIMES. GALILEO, THEY WENT TO CHOP HIS HEAD OFF FOR SAYING THAT THE EARTH — WHAT DID HE SAY? THE SUN REVOLVED AROUND THE EARTH? VICE VERSA. >>Jimmy: RIGHT. >>SO WHEN YOU HAVE MODERN — >>Jimmy: BUT THE SUN — >>I’M NOT CONCERNED ABOUT THE SPECIFICS, SIR. [ LAUGHTER ]>>Jimmy: RIGHT, RIGHT. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>Jimmy: DO YOU EVER REGRET ANYTHING YOU SAY? OR IS IT JUST — YOU LOOK AT IT LIKE, HEY, I PUT IT OUT THERE, IT’S OUT THERE, THERE’S NO POINT IN REGRETTING IT?>>I THINK PEOPLE FOCUS TOO MUCH ON THE PAST AND FOCUS TOO MUCH ON REGRET. EVEN LIKE WHEN YOU DEAL WITH SCHOOLS. LIKE YOU TAKE LIKE THE SLAVE IDEA. MY POINT IS, I’VE HEARD OF HISTORY CLASS. I’VE NEVER HEARD OF A CLASS THAT BREAKS DOWN HOW YOU, YOU KNOW, BALANCE A CHECKBOOK OR HOW YOU CONTROL YOUR FINANCES, WHICH MY FATHER NEVER TAUGHT ME THAT. AND I’VE NEVER HEARD OF A FUTURE CLASS. SO THEY KEEP US SO FOCUSED ON HISTORY THAT WE START TO BELIEVE THAT IT ACTUALLY REPEATS ITSELF. AND WE BECOME OVERLY TRADITIONAL. AND WE CAN’T ADVANCE AS A RACE OF BEINGS. WE GET TOO CAUGHT UP IN THE PAST AND WHAT EVERYONE’S SAYING AND WHAT EVERYONE’S TWEETING. AND SOMETIMES YOU JUST HAVE TO BE FEARLESS ENOUGH TO BREAK THE [ BLEEP ] SIMULATION. WHEN I SAY SIMULATION, THAT’S WHAT I MEAN BY S■IMULATION. SORRY, I KNOW YOU GUYS WANTED TO CLAP BUT EVERYTHING I’M GOING TO SAY IS GOING TO BE AMAZING. [ LAUGHTER ] [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] HERE’S THE IDEA WHY YOU’RE IN A SIMULATION. LET’S START WITH ACTING, FIRST OF ALL. A 2-YEAR-OLD SCREAMS AT A RESTAURANT, THE ENTIRE RESTAURANT SCREAMS, TEACH THAT KID HOW TO ACT. WE’RE ALL UNPAID ACTORS IN SOME GIANT SCRIPT THAT WE DIDN’T WRITE. SIMULATION. A 2-YEAR-OLD JUMPS ON A COFFEE TABLE AND SOMEONE SAYS, THAT’S A COFFEE TABLE, DON’T JUMP ON THAT. SO IT WENT FROM BEING SOMETHING THAT MAKES HIM FEEL LIKE SUPERMAN, HE’S GOT HIS CAPE ON, TO SOMETHING WHERE HE HAS TO THINK ABOUT IN THE PERSON’S LIKE A FAMILY MEMBER, HE’S 2 YEARS OLD, DOESN’T GIVE A [ BLEEP ] ABOUT A COFFEE OR A TABLE. HE’S STARTING TO LIKE CALCULATE ALL THESE THINGS. BY THE TIME YOU’RE 40 YEARS OLD YOU’VE GOT A WALL FULL OF COFFEE TABLES CALCULATING YOU INTO CLASS TRAFFIC, CALCULATING YOU INTO YOUR CAREER CHOICE, CALCULATING YOU INTO THIS TOWNHOUSE THAT’S NOT QUITE AS BIG AS THE TOWNHOUSE NEXT AND IT JUST NEVER WORKS. THAT’S THE SIMULATION THAT I’M TALKING ABOUT. THAT’S WHAT I MEAN WHEN I SAY SIMULATION.>>Jimmy: I THINK I UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU’RE SAYING. BUT I MIGHT NOT. BUT ALSO MAYBE PEOPLE DON’T WANT THE KID TO GET HURT JUMPING ON THE COFFEE TABLE, YOU KNOW?>>WE ARE TOO PROTECTIVE. WE ALWAYS DON’T WANT SOMEONE TO GET HURT. CAN YOU IMAGINE ME TALKING TO MY PUBLICIST BEFORE I SAY I’M GOING ON TV AGAIN? [ LAUGHTER ] [ APPLAUSE ]>>Jimmy: YOU SHOULD BE WEARING A HELMET.>>I’M GOING ON TV BECAUSE IT’S AWESOME. I LOVE JIMMY. WE CAN HAVE A DIALOGUE ABOUT THE PRESIDENT AND NOT A DIATRIBE, YOU KNOW. IT’S LIKE WE CAN — I GOT THAT FROM SARAH JESSICA PARKER. >>Jimmy: IS THAT RIGHT?>>YES. [ LAUGHTER ] SHOUT-OUT. SHOUT-OUT. BUT ONE OF THE THINGS I THINK GETS MISSED ON TMZ IS THE MAIN THING I WAS STRESSING IS THE IDEA OF TRYING LOVE. YOU KNOW, WE’RE ALWAYS, YOU KNOW — PUSHING OUT SO MUCH HATE AND LOVE CAN CURE SO MUCH. JUST TO THINK, AM I MOVING IN LOVE? IS THIS OUT OF LOVE? NOT OUT OF PRIDE. PRIDE IS A WORD PEOPLE SAY IN A POSITIVE CONNOTATION, BUT IT’S ACTUALLY ONE OF THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS. IT TAKES TOO MUCH OWNERSHIP. YOU CAN REPLACE PRIDE WITH LOVE. AND WHEN I SEE PEOPLE JUST EVEN LIKE GO AT THE PRESIDENT, IT’S LIKE, WHY NOT TRY LOVE? FOR ONE PERSON TO STAND UP AGAINST ALL ODDS AND JUST HUG SOMEBODY THE WAY THAT ALICE JOHNSON HUGGED HER FAMILY WHEN SHE GOT OUT OF JAIL. THAT ONE BY ONE BY ONE WE CAN DEFUSE THIS NUCLEAR BOMB OF HATE THAT WE’RE IN AS A SOCIETY BY THINKING OF EVERYONE AS OUR FAMILY. AND HOW WOULD WE TREAT OUR KIDS? HOW WOULD WE TREAT — >>Jimmy: IPY THAT’S A BEAUTIFUL THOUGHT BUT IN LITERAL TERMS 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. AND I THINK THAT WE CANNOT FORGET THAT, WHETHER WE LIKE HIS PERSONALITY OR NOT, HIS ACTIONS ARE REALLY WHAT MATTER. I MEAN, YOU SO FAMOUSLY AND SO POWERFULLY SAID, GEORGE BUSH DOESN’T CARE ABOUT BLACK PEOPLE. IT MAKES ME WONDER WHAT MAKES YOU THINK THAT DONALD TRUMP DOES, OR ANY PEOPLE AT ALL? WHY DON’T WE TAKE A BREAK, WE’LL COME BACK, AND KANYE WEST IS HERE!

  1. Kanye loves blowing Trump as much as KUM KUMSTERDASHIAN love blowing him, any fool knows President Trump is a racist, now let's see how many people did KUM get released from prison and we all know President Trump had them released out of the goodness of his heart, and not by KUM sucking him dry
    P.S. TRUTH HURTS HUH 😉

  2. I believe Kanye is right, everytime Kanye chose to do something it always turned out great. Likewise with his support of President Trump.

  3. Loved the coffee table analogy. I tried to teach my children to jump on coffee tables as children. to break rules and just be who they are and enjoy life without inhibitions. I regret nothing.

  4. Unpopular thought here – Jimmy's comment about what the president is actually doing at the border "literally ripping families apart". What about what these families are doing to their own families? What about their responsibility for their actions…are they coming into the country legally or illegally?? The legal or illegal decisions/actions have consequences. Heartbreaking.

  5. Kinda speechless there at the very end brotha Kanye? (when Jimmy asked him …or told him, "You said George Bush doesn't care about Black people. WHAT MAKES YOU THINK DONALD TRUMP DOES?"

  6. Kanye west is a hypocrite because how do you say George Bush doesn't care about black people during hurricane Katrina when Bush wasn't a blatant racist.Then years later Trump whose an open racist and womanizer but you're on his side no questions asked Trump actually said he wants immigrants from white countries but news flash black people exist everywhere even in Scandinavian countries but Trump is to stupid to realize that. Yet Kanye backs this moron clearly neither of them has done their research. FYI using large words doesn't make you smart it means you own a dictionary and can read a memorized script pay attention to all forms pre-packaged bullshit. Jimmy thanks for asking him the question at the end of this video.

  7. Kimmel's pretty invested in the simulation, Kanye is telling the Truth, we've tried hate, revenge, attacking etc. Endlessly, could Love really be so bad, tolerance, acceptance, joy, bliss, happiness…lets give them a spin!

  8. The end pissed me off like Kanye West was talking about loving one another and never brought up the border.

  9. No matter what yall say, Kimmel was right at the end of this video! You don't have to like it to know what's right! I'm not discrediting Kanye for the very insightful things he said but… wait I don't have to explain nothing yall 😂

  10. He is right that we need to stop the hatred and start to talk to each other in civic mindedness and not get riled up and have debates. If everyone is so emotionally charged and banging their fists on the table it will be bad for the nation. Learn to listen to points of view and learn to formulate arguments

  11. Love is the answer. Love conquers all. Love is stronger than hate. Next time you see a hater complaining about Trump tell them that you still love them regardless.

  12. Jimmy Kimmel thinks he's the smart one, when in reality he's the puppet, and he has to say the right things the left want him to. Kanye is like one of those geniuses nobody understands until their dead.

  13. Who cares what Kimmel has to say? The people want to hear Kanye not him. Besides I wonder if Kimmel is down at the border putting his money where his mouth is and offering to sponsor the people trying to enter the USA illegally. It’s almost as if we can’t have immigration laws in place now. He is one ungrateful person. As a side note, I am a Hispanic-American and my grandparents and parents entered the USA the legal way and the right way.

  14. Im about to turn 30 and have never voted( iv never even thought about it lmao) i see it as nothing but a game guess who, i will never enter my name into those who run for office

  15. Kimmel is actually a racist. Truth. Think for yourselves and quit thinking what that Dems have enslaved you in.

  16. Kanye is spitting straight facts, find it funny though that it ended on a weak point jimmy made to make it feel like thats the whole message here.

  17. This is the classic black guy who for having money thinks he is white and forgets his community and his responsabilities as black leader

  18. I respect him standing up for himself but I feel like he is doing it for attention and praising himself for it. I may not be right but it seems to me that he is worried more about being unique than actually talking about why he agrees with one party or the other.

  19. Kanye has made enough money and gained enough self respect so that he has the freedom to become conscience and think for himself. Millions like Trump, Kanye and millions like you! That's what America used to be! Kim doesn't like Trump but you can! We all have that right but we all don't have the courage. It's easy to follow the crowd, harder to stand alone! Be yourself which ever way you go and if it's against the crowd, more power to you! Kim should be proud of you!

  20. This clown had to turn it into a race thing to try to pin Kanye down on that one issue because he's black! That's terribly unfair! There's so much more to what Trump is doing for America than it is about blacks! Maybe Kanye is thinking about America and something besides the colour of his skin. Anything Trump does for the economy and America benefits all people, including blacks! It's just silly to keep focusing on race and trying to keep blacks on the Democrat plaantation! Democrats GOOD! Republicans BAD! That's infantile!

  21. Kane West God bless you and yes president Trump needs our prayers and love, president Trump is under god's plan and evil is so mad, but yet our lord will prevail once again in 2020
    that Donald J Trump will be president again, then our tribulations will start, a great revival is approaching
    we must not miss it

  22. Smart gentleman Kanye West is. But now watch what the devilish Jimmy kimmel the clown has under his vennom tongue.👹.

  23. Damn, I really was living in a matrix. At least when it comes to how I perceived Kanye. I used to think he was literally an idiot but damn was I wrong. I promise that from now on, I would never judge someone's character by hearsay and the corrupt biased media! Kudos to Kanye West for standing up for what he believes in.

  24. I would be mad if my country accepted all those illegal immigrants. I understand Trump. He has lots of hatters now, but future will show. Illegal is illegal. You can’t do against the law and then expect USA to give you all rights like citizens. Love from Poland

  25. This is proof of the difficulty of trying to unify people. Kanye whole point was to unify humanity and kimmels was to go backwards and focus on keeping the hate alive.

  26. Kanye is too real lool. You can tell Jimmy knows everything Kanye is saying is true, but he's too scared to admit it because that would threaten how he lives his life. Damn smh.

  27. I'm not the target audience for his music, but I appreciate his ideas. Kayne comes across weird, but I think he's just stuck in thought and he has a lot of genuine philosophical ideas. Hollywood tries to portray him as stupid because of that and it's sad.

  28. I really love how when Kanye started changing the subject by saying stuff that are truth but not answering Jimmys question, instead of saying stop changing the subject, Jimmy asked another question that cornered Kanye.

  29. @ 10:55 Keep your ass on a otherside that wall 'with family' and they're won't be any discussion of separated families.

  30. Why didn’t liberals care when obama started the whole family separation things at the border? Oh yea because orange man bad.

  31. Kanye is brilliant. Possesses an amazing mind. Talks about love and how to come together with love…

    … then Jimmy comes in to tell you why you should hate him and then goes to commercial.
