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. After reading the dig, "50 Cent is a moron and needs to be kicked in the BALLSACK", he calmly said, "I don't think anyone deserves to be kicked in the ball sack". Whilst more clearly thought out than his various tweets about the president, the conversation quickly shut down when Kimmel pushed West to state whether he believed Trump cared about black people.

"Everything I'm gonna say is gonna be incredible", West told the audience, asking them to hold their applause.

"It took me a year and a half to have the confidence to stand up and put on the hat, no matter what the consequences were".

The hip-hop star has previously called Trump "my brother" and said they shared the same "dragon energy".

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

L'Equipe are an extremely reliable source, and the fact that they are reporting this indicates the deal is close to completion. Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma is yet to travel to Merseyside despite Everton trying to push through a deal to sign him on loan.

"I think that's a lovely thought but just in literal terms, there are families being torn apart at the border of this country", Kimmel said, referring to Trump's zero tolerance immigration policy.

Kimmel then referred to critical comments West made about former President George W. Bush in 2005, following the US response to Hurricane Katrina devestating New Orleans.

"I mean you so famously and so powerfully said 'George Bush doesn't care about black people.'" Kimmel continued.

Kimmel asked, referring to Kristen's repulsion to "the feeling of pruney fingers".

"I quite enjoy [it] when people are mad at me about certain things".
