Kanye West Sits Down with Tucker Carlson to Talk Politics, Race, Media
Kanye West appeared on ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ on Friday in a sit-down interview with Tucker Carlson (Right bias). The rapper, producer, and fashion designer spoke with Carlson about his divorce from Kim Kardashian, his political stances, including backlash to his support for former President Donald Trump, and more. The first part of the interview aired exclusively on Fox News (Right Bias) on Thursday night, and clips pulled went viral across the web. The second part of the interview is scheduled to air Friday night.
West explained his relationship with politics and frustration with Republican and Democratic leaders that he believes don’t value black Americans beyond approval ratings. West also spoke on Jared and Josh Kushner, the latter of which is a stakeholder in the Kardashian underwear line, SKIMS. West voiced frustration towards both Kushner brothers for what he believed was their efforts to hold back figures like himself and Donald Trump. Another topic in the interview that outlets latched onto was West addressing his decision to wear a shirt reading “White Lives Matter” recently at Paris Fashion Week. West explained that wearing the shirt was more instinct than anything else, and that he wanted to stand up against criticism and threats he had received for his conservative beliefs.
The first part of the interview was covered widely in American outlets and on social media. Outlets on the left were more critical and dismissive of West, with a HuffPost (Left Bias) headline claiming West “Flips Out” during “Bonkers” interview.
