Following his meeting with Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago last week, Kanye sat down for an interview with Tim Pool over the weekend. Unfortunately for Pool, Kanye only agreed to an interview for around 20 minutes before leaving owing to some very minor resistance to his recurrent antisemitism.
The Daily Beast reports that during those 20 minutes, Kanye continued his media tour, attacking everyone he claims has wronged him over the years, including a designer at Adidas who Ye believes was a CIA and somehow also a “Zionist” plant, Jamie Dimon, Hollywood moguls, the Gap, his former trainer and also, in Ye’s mind, a Canadian deep-state agent; and, of course, the “Jewish cabal” in charge of both banking and media.
At some point during Kanye talking points, Pool told Ye, “I think they’ve been extremely unfair to you.” But, when asked to clarify who he meant by “they,” Pool replied: “The corporate press.”
Kanye fired back, “Who is ‘they,’ thought?”
That’s when one of the show’s other guests chimed in: Nick Fuentes, a white nationalist and Holocaust denier, who plays an undefined role in Ye’s 2024 presidential campaign.
“It is them, though, isn’t it?” Fuentes said, referring to Jewish people.
After a simple, “No,” from Pool, a visibly perturbed Kanye responded, “What do you mean it’s not?”
However, kanye reached a breaking point as pool refused to share in his sentiments. Pool tried to explain himself, but he could only manage a few sentences before Kanye stood up from his chair and silently left the studio.
Prior to his walk out, Kanye also managed to compare himself to Martin Luther King Jr., which is actually the conversation that led to his storming off the show but not because of his weird comparison.
“I thought I was more Malcolm X but I found out I’m more MLK,” he said during the interview. “Because as I’m getting hosed down every day by the press and financially, I’m just standing there.”
He continued: “When I found out they tried to put me in jail, it was like a dog was biting my arm. I almost shed a tear, almost,” referencing police officers using dogs to attack non-violent Civil Rights protestors in the 1960s.
Of course, Kanye mentioning “they” led to Pool’s mild pushback, with Kanye apparently refusing to even converse with anyone who doesn’t buy into his narrative that Jewish people control the media, the music industry, and whatever else he’s complained about.
