Kanye West, now known as Ye, said “I like Hitler” while wearing a face covering similar to the Balenciaga and mask worn by ex-wife Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala.
The interview with Jones featuring West and the latest member of his entourage Nick Fuentes joined Jones for a segment in which West did not show his face, and Jones questioned if it really was West under the black hood.
West went on to praise Hitler, and at one point made a puppet out of what appeared to be a butterfly net and addressed him as though he were the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, then pulled out a bottle of Yoo-Hoo.
"I see good things about Hitler, also," West said to a speechless Jones. "Every human being has value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler."
West also said "I don't love the word "evil" next to Nazis. I love Jewish people but I also love Nazis."
The interview led Daily Wire founder Ben Shapiro to say that "Ye is clearly suffering from a mental breakdown. It’s an act of cruelty to have him on the air at this point. He needs treatment, not a spotlight."
Matt Walsh also chimed in, saying: "If I was an optimistic man I would at least hope that Kanye West's mental breakdown and self-immolation would persuade conservatives to stop falling madly in love with every celebrity who says one thing they agree with. But I am not an optimistic man."
West was recently ordered to pay $200,000 per month in child support to ex-wife Kim Kardashian. He was part of an alleged set-up operation by Milo Yiannopolous to hurt former President Donald Trump in which West and Fuentes managed to dine with Trump on Thanksgiving Day.
West has claimed that he is running for president in 2024.
