Kanye West Can't Say That Donald Trump Actually Cares About People

Kanye West likes Donald Trump, but he won't go so far as to say that the president actually has any empathy for other human beings. That seems like a contradiction, but Ye seems to be fine with it. Read on for details.

Kanye West had a lot to say about Donald Trump during his Thursday, August 9, appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, but the rapper was left speechless after the host asked a question about the president’s compassion for human beings.

“There are families being torn apart at the border of this country. … Whether we like his personality or not, his actions are what matter,” Jimmy Kimmel, 50, said. “You so famously, and so powerfully said, ‘George Bush doesn’t care about black people.’ What makes you think that Donald Trump does — or any people at all?”

The 41-year-old has been vocal for his love for Trump in the past, calling the president his “brother” on Twitter in April. After West remained silent for a moment, Kimmel broke the ice and cut to a commercials.

“Why don’t we take a break,” Kimmel said as West began to smile.

Despite having no answer for the late-night host’s question about Trump’s empathy for others, West had plenty to say about politics earlier in the show.

After Kimmel asked if West was “concerned” about the Yeezy designer’s wife, Kim Kardashian, being “alone in the Oval Office with President Trump” when she met with the commander in chief about pardoning then-imprisoned Alice Johnson, West let out a laugh and replied, “Well, he is a player.”
