Kanye West joined Jimmy Kimmel on his late-night talk show on CBS, and immediately the topic of President Donald Trump was brought up. Kimmel brought up the raging debate over illegal immigration by saying, “[Trump’s] tearing families apart at the border.” Kanye blasted the late-night talk show host with a surprise about President Trump, and Kimmel couldn’t stand it. Don’t miss this.
Kanye West is not a professional politico, but he knows when he is being taken as a fool. Jimmy Kimmel treaded lightly at the beginning of the twenty-minute long interview Thursday night. But he slipped into politics by bringing up West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, going to the White House to lobby Trump to pardon Alice Marie Johnson.
Of course, that’s where the CBS host transitioned into getting right into the rapper’s big political statement by wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat and tweeting it out. Breitbart reports, “West told Kimmel he had been warned not to wear the hat but decided to do so, adding that he couldn’t be bullied into not doing.”
“[J]ust 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,” West said. “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 — we’re supposed to have a monolithic thought, we can only like, 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,” he continued. “And what it represented to me is not 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.”
Kanye West spoke about the pressure from the Hollywood crowd and having to copycat their monolithic thought on politics actually led to his hospitalization 18 months ago. He was feeling huge pressure to get in line with the Democrats, but he said he was drawn to Trump’s message.
West grapples with his limitations of expressing his thoughts. Sure, he isn’t a Rhodes Scholar, but what he has is enough street sense to know he was being made to tow the liberal party line, and it wasn’t resonating with him. That’s when Kimmel did a sneaky trick and used those exact leftist talking points on West.
“In literal terms, there are families being torn apart at the border,” said Kimmel. “There are literally families being torn apart as a result of what this president is doing, and I think we can’t forget that — whether we like his personality or not, his actions are really what matter.”
Kimmel then reminded West that he said, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people,” and then Kimmel asked, “What makes you think President Trump does?”
Kanye West didn’t know how to respond because he didn’t know he was being fed a bunch of liberal malarkey. Of course, the correct response is that Trump didn’t initiate the policy of families being “torn apart” at the border.
Of course, the truth is that under Barack Obama kids were put in cages, and those images the leftists loved to spread around all came from his regime. Of course, Kimmel knows Trump has actually rescinded kids being torn apart at the border, which is costing taxpayers millions along with making children more vulnerable now that they can be used as pawns for drug dealers and criminals who want to enter America.
But Kanye West isn’t a politico, nor is he a sneaky leftist talk show host. Kimmel’s bogus talking points may have stymied Kanye West, but he stayed true to his beliefs. The Hollywood rapper won this battle by saying on CBS, “Liberals can’t bully me. News can’t bully me. The hip-hop community — they can’t bully me. ”
Hollywood can’t bully him, not anymore. And President Trump’s scaring the living daylights out of the liberal National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
Just two days ago, the Washington Examiner reported, “In a new poll released by the [NAACP], Trump’s approval rating among blacks has reached 21 percent, more than double what it was in an April Reuters poll.”
That’s devasting news for the NAACP. No wonder Kimmel tried to make West look foolish, but it’s too late. So many in the minority communities are seeing all-time historic lows in unemployment, and with more money in Americans’ wallets and the growing self-esteem with having a job, the liberals can’t turn back time. Time’s up for Jimmy Kimmel and his leftist masters. The truth is setting America free, and Kanye West won’t be fooled again.
