West's free-wheeling answers made for an intriguing if occasionally baffling interview, with Kimmel appearing content to let his guest pontificate at length. "You so famously, and so powerfully said, 'George Bush doesn't care about black people.' What makes you think that Donald Trump does?"

Asked if he supported Trump, West explained that his previous comments representing having "the confidence to stand up and put on the [Make America Great Again] hat no matter what the consequences were". 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.

50 Cent had the lengthiest and most rational response during this hip-hop-themed version of Mean Tweets, which is one of the late-night talk show's longest running and most popular bits.

"Well, he's a player", West said, right after laughing.

After discussing his design and musical talents briefly, Kimmel very quickly steered conversation towards Donald Trump and West's support of him.

"That's a lovely thought, but just in literal terms, there are families being torn apart at the border of this country", said Kimmel, referencing Trump's policy of separating immigrant children from their parents at the USA border.

Kimmel then referred to critical comments West made about former President George W. Bush in 2005, following the USA response to Hurricane Katrina devestating New Orleans.

"I quite enjoy [it] when people are mad at me about certain things".

Returning to the show, Kimmel asked Kanye about some of the music on his recent album ye, specifically regarding the lyrics about his daughter North West on the song "Violent Crimes".
