Jimmy Kimmel finally asks Crazy Kanye the question everyone else SHOULD have asked

Namely : “You so famously and so powerfully said, ‘George Bush doesn’t car...ack people,’” Kimmel said, referring to comments West made at a 2005 benefit for Hurricane Katrina relief. “It makes me wonder what makes you think that Donald Trump does or any people at all?”

And Whack Job West was unable to provide an answer :

I saw this earlier. He often seems to come out with a stream of banalities any first-year Sociology undergraduate would wince at, but feels awfully impressed at himself for doing so. I can never work out whether he's a couple of pork pies short of a picnic or if he's just a bit of a dick. Either way, giving him lots of TV exposure is probably not the best idea.

Kanye is full of sh*t. He generalizes his own people, because no one is telling him who he should vote for. At the end of the day, he is the one who makes the choice. He’s just mad at the Black community because many of us will not pretend tbat trump isn't racist. The problem is he doesn’t admit in public that trump has a racist history. He had no problem accusing Bush so I guess that’s ok for him.

Kanye only cares about his wallet. Trump makes him money, Bush didn't.

Personally, while I think W Bush was an awful President, I don't think he was a racist. However, I totally believe that Trump is not only a racist himself, but deliberately uses racial appeals to his idiot base.

I never liked him after what he did to Taylor Swift but I think his first two albums were good. The Bush comment I believe was in the heat of the moment and he was not thinking. I can't believe Kimmel takes what Kanye says seriously. He probably doesn't, ratings.

I think we can all collectively say.

Started hypervenilating immediately watching that clip because I was fixated on the footage behind Kanye. Katrina was not kind to me. I owned a house then, I rent now. Yesterday Trump was touting his amazing job on Hurricane Maria Relief last year in Puerto Rico. The official death toll there is 64 (they say it's really over 1400). Trump said he did way better than the relief for Katrina which killed" hundreds and hundreds of people" (over 1200) so he did way better with Maria. Painful.

Kanye looked sincere back then. I wonder what happened, but not enough to care. He's set for life now and probably isn't calling his business manager to help Maria victims.

Trump thanks Kanye for "sticking up for him"

www.huffingtonpost.com/en...32af982e02

Thank you to Kanye West and the fact that he is willing to tell the TRUTH,” the president tweeted Friday. “Thank you Kanye for your support. It is making a big difference!”

I honestly don't think Kanye West gives two fucks about Trump or the Presidency. He's just doing and saying these things for publicity. Always has done. Back when Bush was in office, and as bad as he was, it wasn't as common for people to complain about the president as it is now so when Kanye West said that Bush didn't care about black people, it was guaranteed to make the news. Publicity for Kanye West. However, if he were to come out now and say that Trump doesn't care about black people, nobody would bother reporting on it because that's something everyone knows. It's like, "yeah and water is wet". BUT, if he comes out in defence of a universally despised President, then that WILL make the news and once again, publicity for Kanye West. It really is true that any publicity is good publicity. After Michael Jackson was arrested for being a suspected child molester, his sales went up. When Kanye West acted like a complete dickhead to Taylor Swift, his sales went up. People like Kanye West and his vapid wife exist purely for publicity and they would do anything to stay in the public eye. Including backing a racist president.

And so you think that he is ‘thinking’ now? Lmao. There is years of proof of trump’s racial prejudice towards Blacks than there is about Bush. So is Kanye really thinking? He never answered Jimmy’s question. hmmm

I agree that he’s doing it for publicity.

Just like his talentless, slut of a wife. Anything for publicity. Disgraceful.

I think he changed a lot since Bush comment and Taylor Swift meltdown. I will never like him after attacking Taylor Swift.

Kanye needs to make sure he takes his meds. He couldn't answer the question , because he's never given Trump's actual policies, or his history, or his behavior, any actual thought. So when confronted with a direct inquiry from Kimmel, for once, Kanye had absolutely nothing to say

Yeah but many you guys applauded him when he roasted Taylor Swift, she was a one-hit wonder and Beyonce should have got the award. I think Kimmel and Kanye are not political commentators and can't be taken seriously. Who decides your political views? Say if Kanye was all about the Clintons, shouldn't affect a sane person's views.

I certainly didn't applaud him. What he did to Taylor Swift was stupid, and I said it on here several times. President Obama called Kanye an "ASS" for doing that ! So please don't make generalizations.



Kimmel has shown a willingness to learn more about politics in recent years. Kanye knows nothing, and his comments (particularly about Trump) illustrate that . He just likes the attention

I know you probably didn't but some as I remember made a case that these award shows were racially biased and Kanye had a point. People were dogging on Pinks career at the time as well. Many too agreed with Obama's assessment he was a jackass and I agree. He lost me with the entire Taylor Swift attack at VMAs.

I don’t recall anyone in this forum applauding Kanye for what he said to Taylor. That comment basically had many asking what was going on with Kanye, and thereafter questioning his comments/actions/behavior, following that incident. The question still remains how come he doesn’t call out trump for trump’s questionable, racist comments. It’s like Kanye says and do dumb isht for attention.

He and his wife thrive on attention. They are part of the problem - this "reality show" obsession this country has makes talentless people rich and president.

Lol, he still didn’t say what his answer to the question was. He’s always so quick to answer his love for trump, but hesitated about trump’s history of racial prejudice.
