Kanye Walks Out of Tim Pool Interview When Asked About His Claims That "They" Are Controlling the World and "They" Are Hurting Him

Nick Fuentes was right there to back his employer and insist that it was all "Them's" fault.

Pool allowed West to express his views, largely uninterrupted, for the first fifteen minutes of the broadcast. He claimed that his recent, controversial dinner with former President Donald Trump had been scheduled last month -- apparently before West began making antisemitic comments such as the infamous "death con" tweet. The dinner was postponed until after the midterm elections; West confirmed that Trump did not know Fuentes.

So there's something.

West claimed that it was "beautiful" that people could see how Jews -- whom he referred to as "Zionists" at one stage -- cancel people.

Tim Pool then interrupted: "You went right into the antisemite thing ... If you start bringing this up, you're going to ask my opinion on it, I'm going to disagree with you." West replied: "I don't care about your opinion."

He then claimed that "Jewish people allowed" then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) to meet with the racist and antisemitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan in 2005.

Pool expressed empathy for West's experience of being canceled: "I think they've been extremely unfair to you."

"Who is 'they', though?" West replied. "We can't say who 'they' is, can we?"

"Corporate press," Pool replied.

Fuentes interjected: "It is 'them,' though, isn't it?"

Pool replied: "No, it's not."

"What do you mean it's not?" West asked.

He then stood up and left the room. His entourage followed.

Kanye West hates Jewish people.



Meanwhile, various Republicans have begun issue statements about Trump's dinner with Ye, Milo, and Fuentes. The statements break down much as you'd expect, but in general, people are at least attempting to "distance" themselves from the dinner.

Mitch McConnell's #2:

GOP Sen. Thune on Trump - Fuentes dinner:

"That's just a bad idea on every level. I don't know who was advising him on his staff but I hope that whoever that person was got fired"

Asked by @frankthorp if it was appropriate for Trump to meet with Fuentes, GOP Sen. Daines says: "We cannot tolerate antisemitism. Period."

"It's bad," Cornyn says when asked about the Trump-Fuentes dinner

Blunt: "I've been tired about responding about what President Trump did or said for about four years. Seems to me there are other things you can ask about"

"I wouldn't want to have dinner with either one of those guys"


I can feel all of that.


On Fuentes and Ye:

Ernst: "I think it's ridiculous he had that meeting. I think it's ridiculous."

Deb Fischer: "It's not something I would have done. I think it's wrong anytime you elevate comments that that person says."

Rick Scott: "There's no room in the Republican Party for white supremacists and antisemitism, so it's wrong."

"I think Republicans should all condemn white supremacy and anti semitism."

Romney: "There's no bottom to the degree which he's willing to degrade himself and the country for that matter. Having dinner with those people was disgusting."

Hawley on Trump-Fuentes dinner:

"I suppose he can have dinner with whomever he wants to"

He then equated the situation with Rep. Ilhan Omar, saying she should be stripped of her committee assignments

Tuberville: "There's a lot of other people I would think he could have met with to help the country be stronger and go in the right direction."

Pence said that Trump should apologize for the dinner.

Former Vice President Mike Pence said Monday on NewsNation's "On Balance" that former President Donald Trump should apologize for having dinner at his Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, FL with Kanye West and Nick Fuentes.

Pence said, "President Trump was wrong to give a white nationalist, an antisemite, and a Holocaust denier a seat at the table. And I think he should apologize for it, and he should denounce those individuals and their hateful rhetoric without qualification."

He continued, "With that being said, as I point out in the book as well, I don't believe Donald Trump is an antisemite. I don't believe he's a racist or a bigot. I would not have been his vice president if he was. And, you know, people often forget the president's daughter converted to Judaism, and his son-in-law is a devout Jew, and his grandchildren are Jewish."

I know Trump takes a "No apologies" position, but I think it would be a good idea for him to explain. Like, he says he wanted to "help" Kanye. Maybe he could remind people that he knew Kanye a little bit from their interactions regarding letting all those people out of prison so that Ivanka could show off for her socialite friends. (Don't get me started on that.) Like, he could explain that maybe Kanye was asking him for advice about how to get through a bad media spell, or whatever it was.

What I'm saying is that there are probably details that would be helpful to Trump, which he should share, and not just in some blustery off-the-cuff "Truth" on Truth Social. Like, take it seriously, write out your thoughts (or have someone write them out after you narrate them), and deliver prepared remarks.
