“Liberals can’t bully me. … I actually quite enjoy when people actually are mad at me about certain things,” the rapper stated.
“People got really mad when you were — well, some people were very happy when you said you liked President Trump. Do you like, do you think he is a good president?” Kimmel requested.
West then launched into a really West rationalization:
“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, 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 are supposed to have a monolithic thought — we can only be Democrats and all. … And it took me a year and a half to have the confidence to stand up and put on the hat.”
West added, “I actually quite enjoy when people actually are mad at me about certain things.”
“You must enjoy it, yeah,” Kimmel quipped.
“I actually quite enjoy it,” West responded.
