Kanye West says 'I love Hitler' on Alex Jones' show and explains why
"There's a lot of things that I love about Hitler."
Kanye West has said he likes and "loves" Hitler while appearing on Alex Jones' Infowars podcast in what is his most shocking interview yet.
The disgraced rapper, now known as just Ye, also defended Nazis and denied the Holocaust on Thursday (1 December), weeks after his reputation and fortune plummeted over anti-semitic remarks.
Wearing a fabric mask to cover his entire head, an oversized motorcycle jacket, and sitting next to a bible, Ye ranted:
"I see good things about Hilter... Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler."
Jones tried to steer West away from speaking about Hitler, but he couldn't.
"There's a lot of things that I love about Hitler," Ye hit back.
Alex Jones desperately tries to get Kanye West to clarify that he doesn't actually love Hitler ... but nope.

Later, Ye said the Germans "had a really good leader at one point", and denied that Hitler had ordered the deaths of six million Jews, saying:
"He didn't kill six million Jews. That's just factually incorrect."
He added: "I'm not trying to be shocking. I like Hitler. The Holocaust is not what happened... Hitler has a lot of redeeming qualities."
Jones, who a court has ordered to pay the families of Sandy Hook school shooting victims $1.44 billion for spreading conspiracy theories, looked uncomfortable during the interview.
He repeatedly asked Ye to take off his mask and what time his flight was.
However, he also said critics were trying to "censor" Ye and bragged that this was his most-watched broadcast of 2022.
West acted out a fake conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Nentanyahu, discussed his divorce from Kim Kardashian and turning to alcohol and "threesomes" afterwards and described a 2024 presidential campaign as a "walk to the [White] House."
Jones and Ye were joined by white supremacist Nick Fuentes, who had lunch with the rapper and Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago.
Agreeing with Fuentes, Ye said he was "pro-Putin" and "pro-Russia", and he defended Balenciaga against claims of exploiting children, saying: "Everyone in the sex business is as bad as the pedophiles."
Speaking about his divorce from Kim Kardashian, Ye told Jones: "Since I lost my wife, since I lost my family and was no longer the priest in my home and have the say so, I was frustrated and I let the devil come and get me.
"I let the devil pull me in. Next thing you know I'm at New Year's Eve parties having threesomes."
He pleaded for Kim to come back to him, saying: "Hulu doesn't love you, Kim. Disney does not love you, Kim. Come home, Kim. Come home to Christ.
"Go to God. Go to Jesus. Go marry Tom Brady, but get married and use your platform as an influence to keep families together."
Later in the show, he returned to his Hitler remarks, adding: "I do love Hitler, I do love the Zionists, I love everyone."
Ye also urged Elon Musk to allow Jones back on Twitter, something he vowed never to do.
Overnight Musk banned Ye from Twitter.
The Donda rapper had posted an image of a swastika inside the Star of David, alongside the caption: “YE24 LOVE EVERYONE #LOVESPEECH.”
