Kanye West Says He Was Not Stumped by Trump Question

Kanye West is speaking out after the media claimed he was “stumped” by a question he was asked by Jimmy Kimmel.

The 41-year-old rapper discussed President Donald Trump at length during the interview and he was left speechless for a moment after one certain question.

“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?” Jimmy asked.

Kanye didn’t have an immediate answer and sat there in thought for a few moments before Jimmy cut to commercial.

Now, Kanye is speaking out about the moment.

“On Jimmy Kimmel we had a great time having a dialogue. I’m reading that I was stumped by a question. Let me clarify the click bait. I wasn’t stumped. I wasn’t given a chance to answer the question,” Kanye tweeted. “The question was so important I took time to think. And then I was hit with the let’s go to commercial break. That interview showed strong personalities with different opinions having a civil conversation.”

He added, “I was so happy when I saw Jimmy walk out in the Yeezys. That was an olive branch. He lead with love. I appreciate Jimmy and his team. You guys are Jedi’s. much love.”

Kanye West Defends His Support for Trump on 'Kimmel': 'Liberals Can't Bully Me'

Kanye West made a rare late night appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night (August 9) and defended his decision to support Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election.

“Just 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,” the 41-year-old rapper expressed. “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.”

“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,” Kanye 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.”

“Because at that point, if I’m afraid to be me, I’m no longer Ye. That’s what makes Ye,” Kanye added – Watch the full interview below!

Kristen Bell Explains 'Medical Condition' Behind Her Pool Gloves on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

Kristen Bell stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday (August 8) and finally addressed why she wears gloves while swimming in a pool.

Host Jimmy brought up the pool gloves that he and Kristen‘s hubby Dax Shepard discussed during his appearance in July: “Is it proper to call it a phobia?” Kimmel asked, referring to Kristen‘s repulsion to “the feeling of pruney fingers.”

“I would call it a very serious medical, undiagnosed and yet to be discovered medical condition that tens of people in America might also suffer from,” Kristen expressed. “When they’re wet, it’s like, I’ll puke. I will truly puke. I have a physical nausea.”

“When they’re wet, it’s like, I’ll puke. I will truly puke,” Kristen added. “If [my hands] were wet I could probably get away with touching cement, I could get away with touching my bathing suit or another piece of skin if it wasn’t ridgy, but Dax is always in the pool.”

“I’m not ashamed because, in my lifetime, I want to remove the stigma of the maybe 10 people who also maybe suffer from [this],” Kristen said. “You’re not alone.”

John Cho Turned Down 'Searching' When He First Got The Script

John Cho stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday (August 7) and revealed that he originally turned down his role in the upcoming thriller, Searching.

“The script was weird because they did what they call a scriptment, it read more like a short story but they couldn’t do like interior, google chrome. It didn’t really make any sense,” the 46-year-old actor expressed. “They did it more of a pro style but I got the feel of it.”

“I did say no at first,” John continued. “I said, ‘I don’t want to make a YouTube video, I want to make a movie.’ The director came back at me and told me that there would be a camera on your face and there will be a second camera on the screen, and that camera will be a traditional movie camera.”

The movie, also starring Debra Messing and newcomer Michelle La, debuted at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and was a bit hit there. The film currently has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes – Watch the trailer here!
