However, when the unparalleled producer/rapper went on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday night to discuss his controversy-stirring behavior in 2018, there was one moment when he came up speechless.

The outspoken rapper has been widely criticised within the hip-hop community for his support of US President Donald Trump. West, who is married to reality-show star Kim Kardashian West.

West's admiration for Trump - which appears to stem from an appreciation that of the businessman's unlikely ascent to the presidency - contrasts with his previous views on Republican presidents, namely George W. Bush. Kanye, you're off the hook now, but eventually you'll have to address the very real effects of Trump's presidency.

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

"You so famously and so powerfully said 'George Bush doesn't care about black people".

He went on to say that, for him, supporting Trump "is not about policies, because I'm not a politician like that".

Ryanair strike: One in six flights cancelled in pilot walkout
The cancellations come after hundreds of passengers were stranded at London's Stansted Airport as a result of storms on Tuesday. Ryanair will then be forced to cancel 400 of its 2,400 planned flights that day.

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

He also referred to the May TMZ interview where he said controversial comments like slavery was a "choice" and alluded to being in a "ramped-up state" when speaking to the TMZ reporter.

"If I can't be me, I can't be Ye and I quite enjoy when people are mad at me about certain things", he said.

"Well she's super passionate about it, and it was awesome for her to see that dream come true", West responded. The rapper explained that there's this idea out there that "blacks can only be Democrats" and he added that as a result of his hospitalization in 2016 he "lost his confidence" and it took him a year and a half to say what he truly felt. "And I think that we can not forget that, whether we like his personality or not, his actions are really what matter", Kimmel fired back.

"What's next for you, Space Force?" asked Kimmel, following up with a question on whether or not West would consider designing the force's uniforms if Trump asked.
