Kanye West made an appearance on ABC’s ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ on Thursday, and was asked multiple questions as expected during any talk show appearance but there was one question in particular that left Mr. West silent. Jimmy brought up an old statement made by Kanye saying that George Bush does not care for black people. Then he directed a question to Kanye, who is a well-known Trump supporter, asking for his views on the topic if Trump cared for blacks unlike Bush according to Kanye.

Kimmel pointed to the policy that separated immigrant families and asked: “You’ve so famously and so powerfully said ‘George Bush doesn’t care about black people,’ it makes me wonder what makes you think that Donald Trump does, or any people at all?”

While the audience and Jimmy patiently waited for a response to the fair question, Kanye West waited silently for the commercial break. Kimmel also asked earlier in the show if Kanye was comfortable with his wife, Kim Kardashian-West, being alone with Trump in the oval office, to which Kanye replied in reference to Trump that “he’s a player.” Certain comments made by Mr. West on the show has left onlookers baffled days later.

Kanye West has since posted on Twitter explaining why he was silent when asked that particular question saying that he was simply thinking and not just trying to avoid answering the question.

“On Jimmy Kimmel we had a great time having a dialogue. 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,” he said in his Twitter post.

He followed up the post with another post saying, “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.”
