Kanye West says he wasn't "stumped" by Jimmy Kimmel's Trump question -- he wasn't given enough time to answer
"On Jimmy Kimmel we had a great time having a dialogue," West tweeted of their Jimmy Kimmel Live! interview. "I’m reading that I was stumped by a question. Let me clarify the click bait. I wasn’t stumped. I wasn’t given a chance to answer the question... The question was so important I took time to think. And then I was hit with the let’s go to commercial break. That interview showed strong personalities with different opinions having a civil conversation." Kimmel responded to West's tweets: "Not every question warrants an immediate answer. Some answers need to be considered and a talk show with time constraints is a difficult place to do that. I know how much Kanye cares and I am so impressed by what he is doing quietly and without fanfare to help those who need it."

Kanye West was left speechless after Jimmy Kimmel asked about Donald Trump
Kimmel took his time getting to the big topic of the president in his 22-minute interview with West, the rap star's first sit-down since he appeared on TMZ Live and declared that slavery was a choice. But when Kimmel brought up Trump, it caused West to clam up. “You so famously and so powerfully said, ‘George Bush doesn’t care about black people,’” Kimmel said, referring to comments West made at a 2005 benefit for Hurricane Katrina relief. “It makes me wonder what makes you think that Donald Trump does or any people at all?” After four seconds of silence, Kimmel cut to commercial break, and the question wasn't brought up again. West did later defend his support of Trump, saying: "Liberals can’t bully me, news can’t bully me, the hip-hop community, they can’t bully me. Because at that point, if I’m afraid to be me, I’m no longer Ye. That’s what makes Ye.”

Jimmy Kimmel slams West Hollywood for trying to remove Donald Trump's star, even though it has no power to do so
“Here’s the thing. Trump’s star isn’t in West Hollywood where they voted, it’s in Hollywood. And one has absolutely nothing to do with the other,” said Kimmel, whose talk show is taped half a block and across the street from Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame star. "West Hollywood and Hollywood are like Virginia and West Virginia, they’re unrelated, which means there’s no reason for the West Hollywood City Council to be voting on this," Kimmel added. Trump received his Walk of Fame star in January 2007 for his work as Miss Universe pageant producer, although it was timed for The Apprentice: Los Angeles season. Meanwhile, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, who used to be the L.A. City Council member for Hollywood, said he thinks Trump's star should stay put.
