Update (August 12, 2018): Kanye West didn't appreciate looking foolish in the wake of his recent interview with late night funnyman Jimmy Kimmel. In a series of tweets unleashed on Saturday, August 11, Yeezy clarified the moment where he appeared to be stumped by Kimmel's question regarding President Donald Trump and former President George W. Bush:

Original: Kanye West is stumped. 

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday, August 9, the two talked about everything from West's mental health to his personal "simulation" philosophy. For the bulk of the interview, Kanye was very Kanye as he spoke his mind even if he received a few side-eyes in response, but one question ultimately stumped him. 

Kimmel inquired about West's bothersome support for Donald Trump. 

“You famously and so powerfully said ‘George Bush doesn’t care about black people.’ It makes me wonder, what makes you think that Trump does?” Kimmel asked.

The question we all wanted to know, to be honest! Kimmel brought up that Old Kanye!

And, we kid you not, 'Ye pretty much turned into this GIF:

His answer? Silence! West appeared to be contemplating the right answer, and Kimmel cued up the commercial break promptly.



However, when they returned, they didn't resume to regularly scheduled programming; they started talking about his new album, Ye.


West might have been silent, but Twitter had a lot to say about his reaction.



But we needed answers.
