Kimmel then played a clip of West discussing the opioid painkillers he was given after his surgery. “When I left the hospital, how many pills you think I was given? Seven!” he said. “I went from taking two pills to taking seven!”
Responded Kimmel: “Maybe you should be taking eight.”
Kimmel also goofed on West’s bizarre remark that “TMZ is the hospital to fix the world,” joking, “Wow, health care really is in bad shape if TMZ is a hospital. If TMZ is a hospital, it’s a mental hospital!”
As Kimmel admitted, keeping up with the daily nuttiness emanating from Donald Trump’s White House is a full-time job for late-night hosts, but Yeezy’s shenanigans are taking things to a whole other level.
“Here’s the thing: This job, doing this show every night, is hard enough,” said Kimmel. “Keeping up with the White House on a daily basis is exhausting. I can’t handle Donald Trump and Kanye West at the same time. It’s too much. It’s like being a single mother with twins. I can’t do it!” he said. “One of you is gonna have to stop — I’ll let you decide between yourselves which one it’s going to be.”
