Kanye West discusses his mental health, Trump support and why he's like Galileo with Jimmy Kimmel

Music's biggest artist. The New York entertainer has unloaded some serious mayhem on Kanye West following last night's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" appearance. West first announced that support by tweeting a photo of himself wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat.

Ye seemed lost for words, however, when Kimmel asked him if he thought Trump cared about black people.

West said he couldn't publicize his support for Trump "or my career would be over, I'd get kicked out of the black community". Without it - and if his mom medicated him as a child - "I might have never been 'Ye", he said.

"She's super passionate about it, and it was unbelievable for her to see that dream come true", said West. Kimmel then asked a rather awkward question: "Were you ever concerned about her being alone in the Oval Office with President Trump?".

Kimmel eased into the topic of President Trump by bringing up Kim Kardashian West's part in securing clemency for Alice Marie Johnson.

West didn't respond to Kimmel's question. "They've never heard two people get together and discuss these things without screaming at each other and saying, 'You're a racist; you're a hater; I gotta shut you down, you're the enemy'".

"Well, he's a player", West said, right after laughing.

The move, West added, wasn't so much about Trump's policies.

"It's amusing in this world we live in, there are two main motivating forces", he said.

"He lifts my helmet up and he goes, 'Are you crying?' I was sobbing", she recalled.

Some liberals joked that they were happy to hand the controversial Kanye over to conservatives. "And that's when you get these comments that just shoot out, nearly like Tourette's", West said.

"I mean, you so famously and so powerfully said George Bush doesn't care about black people. Whether we like his personality or not, his actions are what matter", the late-night talk show host said.

West's appearance on the show is the first since his 2013 dispute with Kimmel over a skit mocking Kanye's lengthy BBC Radio 1 interview with Zane Lowe.

"Nah I still look at Pornhub", he said. "There some cases of bipolar where people go low, I'm one that goes high, like Michelle Obama says".
