KANYE WEST DEFENDS HIS SUPPORT FOR TRUMP: ‘LIBERALS CAN’T BULLY ME’

West said earlier in the segment that he would not be “bullied” by those on the left because he supported the president.

“Just as a musician, an African-American man in Hollywood, all these different things, you know, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me,” the Chicago rapper told Kimmel. “And then told me that every time I said I liked Trump, I couldn’t say it out loud or my career would be; I would get kicked out of the black community, because blacks — we’re supposed to have a monolithic thought, we can only, as we can only be the Democrats and all.”

“I was so happy when I saw Jimmy walking 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,” West tweeted.
