LOS ANGELES – Rapper Kanye West is not known to keep his tongue, but at one point in a pleasing interview on TV's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Thursday, one question took silence.
Kimmel, a close night critic of President Donald Trump, hammered the practitioner over his support for Trump, as West once described in a tweet as "my brother."
West complained that Liberals, Africans-Americans and hip-hop colleagues chastized him to be himself and support the president. He also dared into a strange diatribe that Galileo was an iconoclast, about how "I've never heard of a class that breaks down how to balance a control book" and about how people are all "undecided actors in any giant script that we did not write. "
But sometimes West focused on Trump.
"When I see that people just like to go to the president, it's like why not try to love … One by one after one, we can diffuse this nuclear weapon of social hatred by thinking of everyone like our family and how We treat our children, he said.
West also said that bipolar disease affects his creativity. Without that ̵
But Kimmel pushed the Trump question more than anyone else. 19659004] "… In literal terms, there are families torn at the border with this country," said Kimmel. "It's literally families that break down as a result of what this president does, and I think we can not forget that if we like his personality or not, his actions are really what matters."
"I mean you" I'm so famous and so powerful that George [W.] Bush does not care about black people. It makes me wonder what makes you think Donald Trump does – or any people at all? "
The camera focused on the West whose eyes were high, stood still and whose arms folded. No words appeared for a beat or two, and it was nervous laughter from the studio school. Kimmel saved the interview by saying "Why do not we take a break …"
The host tried to ease the mood after the break by nixing a drummer and talking about the fashion choices that West has made for their children. But soon, the rapper, who recently released the album, "Ye", returned to wandering comments where he spoke of murder, a subject of one of the new album's tracks and suicide.
"People are so afraid to meet what we really do," West said. "… We want to put a patina on it and not face it."
"I've been thinking about a tombstone that said," Are you lucky now? "" West continued. "
" It's fun but not funny, "said Kimmel." When you've been hardened so you have to Be careful and talk to people. "
It was the first" Jimmy Kimmel Live "look of the West since 2013 when the two beat a beef over the host's aeration of a video that made it fun with the rapper.
