In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Kayne West exposed the leftist bullying tactics they use on minority communities.
â€œ[J]ust as a musician, African-American, guy out in Hollywood â€” all these different things, you know, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me,â€ West said. â€œAnd then told me every time I said I liked Trump that I couldnâ€™t say it out loud or my career would be over. Iâ€™d get kicked out of the black community because blacks â€”Â weâ€™re supposed to have a monolithic thought, we can only like, we can only be Democrats and all. So, even when I said it right before I went to the hospital and I expressed myself, and when I came out I had lost my confidence.â€
â€œSo, I didnâ€™t have the confidence to take on the world and the possible backlash, and it took me a year and a half have the confidence to stand up and put on the hat no matter what the consequences were,â€ he continued. â€œAnd what it represented to me is not about policies because Iâ€™m not a politician like that. But it represented overcoming fear and doing what you felt, no matter what anyone said, in saying, you canâ€™t bully me. Liberals canâ€™t bully me. News canâ€™t bully me. The hip-hop community â€” they canâ€™t bully me. Because at that point, if Iâ€™m afraid to be me, Iâ€™m no longer Ye. Thatâ€™s what makes Ye. And I actually quite enjoy when people are mad at me about certain things.â€
Trump responded to this interview
Thank you to Kanye West and the fact that he is willing to tell the TRUTH. One new and great FACT – African American unemployment is the lowest ever recorded in the history of our Country. So honored by this. Thank you Kanye for your support. It is making a big difference!
