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

"Nah, I still look at Pornhub", he said, to the immediate delight of both Kimmel and the audience. "Let me clarify the click bait". Now that he had the time to think of an answer, West, like his friend Trump, took to Twitter to address his non-response on Kimmel earlier this week. When I see people even, like, go at the president, it's like. why not try love?

"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".

During Thursday's JKL episode, Kimmel reminded West about his infamous 2005 moment when he said President George W. Bush "doesn't care" about black people during a telethon to raise money for Hurricane Katrina victims.

West said that he and Kimmel were having "a great time" with their dialogue before the question about Trump came up. "Clark, let that new "XTCY " joint go! So".

The talk show host discussed his recent album Ye and the song I Thought About Killing You along with the quote on the album cover which reads: "I hate being biopolar". He notes that those around him "told me every time I said I liked Trump that I couldn't say it out loud or my career would be over".

"That interview showed strong personalities with different opinions having a civil conversation", he continued.

Back in May he appeared on TMZ's show and infamously said: 'You were there for 400 years and it's all of y'all. Mirroring his "own reality", he admitted to "a lot of black on white, obviously".
