On "The News & Why It Matters," BlazeTV hosts Sara Gonzales and Alex Stein, along with John Doyle, discussed Kanye West’s bizarre interview with podcaster Tim Pool, which ended with West (who now goes by Ye) storming out after a roughly 20-minute unhinged rant about Jewish people.
During a livestream episode of "Timcast IRL," West, joined by Nick Fuentes and Milo Yiannopoulos, unloaded on certain Jewish people — including Obama administration chief of staff Rahm Emanuel and special adviser to former President Donald Trump Jared Kushner — who he claims have conspired to sabotage his career.
West warned Pool that he would "walk the 'eff' off the show" if he was asked to defend his claims and promptly followed through with his threat when Pool refused to agree that Jewish people control the media.
"When I found out they were trying to put me in jail, it was like a dog was biting my arm, and I almost shed a tear. Almost. But I still walked in stride through it," West complained during a long-winded, meandering rant about his Mar-a-Lago meeting with Donald Trump, anti-Semitism charges against him, and how he believes a Jewish cabal is out to get him.
"I think they've been extremely unfair to you,” Pool conceded, thinking West was referring to the media.
"Who is 'they,' though? We can’t say who 'they' is,” West replied.
"The corporate press," Pool clarified. "I don’t use the word as the way, I guess, you guys use."
Pool disagreed when Fuentes jumped in to add, "It is them, though, isn’t it?" apparently meaning Jewish people.
"What do you mean it’s not?" West demanded before storming out of the studio, followed by Fuentes and Yiannopoulos.
"You guys want to bring that stuff up and then think we’re not gonna have a conversation?” Pool asked as the three departed.
Sara, Alex, and John talked about the awkward interview, the lead-up to West's sudden departure, and the rapper's recently announced 2024 presidential bid.
