Rapper Kayne West described what it was like for him to be a supporter of President Trump in Hollywood Thursday night, but struggled to answer why he believed Mr. Trump cared about black people. West said. "We can diffuse this nuclear bomb of hate that we're in as a society by thinking of everyone as our family". "It's important for us to have open conversations about mental health especially with me being black, because we never had therapists in the black community".
After a bunch of slowly unravelling statements about love, "future class", and balancing cheque books, Kimmel asked "Whether we like his personality or not, his actions are really what matter". West gave his thoughts on music and fashion, his wife Kim Kardashian's trip to Washington, D.C., to meet with President Donald Trump, the two most significant motivating forces in the world, and overcoming fear.

Referring to the abbreviation of his first name that provides the title of his latest album, he went on: "If I'm afraid to be me, I'm no longer Ye". "And what it represented to me is not about policies - because I'm not a politician like that". When Kimmel pressed him on specifics, though, pointing out that families are being separated at the border and asking West, "You've so famously and so powerfully said George Bush doesn't care about black people".
Kristen Bell, who has no shame in her game, appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" a few weeks later where she was quick to defend her pool gloves, calling it a serious, yet-to-be-discovered medical condition.

Earlier in the show, West defended his decision to support Trump, whom he once called his "brother" on social media.
"When I see people even just like go at the president, it's like why not try love?" he added.

West's appearance on the show is the first since his 2013 dispute with Kimmel over a skit mocking Kanye's lengthy BBC Radio 1 interview with Zane Lowe.
