Kanye West Finally Answers the Question Jimmy Kimmel Asked Him About Donald Trump

You may remember, earlier this month, Kanye West didn’t answer a Trump-related question asked to him by Jimmy Kimmel during his appearance on the show.

Jimmy asked, “I mean, you’ve so famously and so powerfully said George (W.) Bush doesn’t care about black people. It makes me wonder, what makes you think that Donald Trump does, or any people at all?” Kanye didn’t immediately answer, and the show cut to commercial.

Today (August 29), Kanye made a surprise appearance during a radio program on WGCI in Chicago, and answered the question.

“I feel that he cares about the way black people feel about him, and he would like for black people to like him like they did when he was cool in the rap songs,” Kanye said. “He’s got an ego like all the rest of us, and he wants to be the greatest president, and he knows that he can’t be the greatest president without the acceptance of the black community.”

“So it’s something that he’s gonna work towards, but we’re gonna have to speak to him,” Kanye added.

    Wanting acceptance from black people is NOT the same thing as caring about black people. Trump does not care at all if a black guy is killed by a cop, as long as the victim thought highly of him. Disgusting.

    None of that is true. Just one Narcissist to another.

    Kanye is such an idiot. What a ridiculous and simplistic statement.

    Just an idiot giving his idiotic opinion about another idiot.
