Jimmy Kimmel covered a lot of ground during his interview with Kanye West last week. But it was the rare instance when West was left speechless that stood out to nearly every media outletincluding this one. Now, Kimmel is speaking out about what Wests silence meant to him.
Toward the end of their first segment, which was dominated by Wests enduring love for President Donald Trump, the Jimmy Kimmel Live! host brought up the rappers infamous comments about George W. Bush after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005. You so famously and so powerfully said, George Bush doesnt care about black people, the host noted. It makes me wonder what makes you think that Donald Trump does, or any people at all?
West sat silently for several seconds before Kimmel ultimately cut to a commercial break before his guest could formulate an answer. In the eyes of many viewers, he was stumped.
