Kanye West defended Trump supporters against liberal bullies on David Letterman’s Netflix show which will air in a week. In it Kanye said Trump supporters are treated like the enemies of America:
DAILY CALLER – “This is like my thing with [President Donald] Trump — we don’t have to feel the same way, but we have the right to feel what we feel,” West shared, before explaining that when he wears his “Make America Great Again” hat, it’s “not about politics” but about taking away the stigma of supporting the president.
Later, Letterman asked if the superstar rapper had voted for Trump.
“I’ve never voted in my life,” West replied.
Letterman shoots back that Kanye then doesn’t have a say in this.
“Well you got me, you got me,” the he responded, before going on what was described as an “anti-13th Amendment rant.”
Letterman then changes the conversation to accusing Republicans of voter suppression. But Kanye turns things around and instead talked about what Trump voters go through and expressed sympathy for them.
They are “treated like enemies of America because that’s what they felt,” the “Gold Digger” hitmaker explained. “Have you ever been beat up in your high school for wearing the wrong hat?”
Letterman then asked Kanye, “who is doing the bulk of the bullying in America right now?”
“Liberals bully people who are Trump supporters,” Kanye replied.
I like the fact that, while Kanye doesn’t seem to hold a central philosophy on politics, that he is speaking out on this issue that we all know is true.
In fact he admits above that he doesn’t even wear his MAGA hat because of politics, but rather because liberals have tried to make MAGA hats a stigma and he wants to disarm them.
It’s laudable and I look forward to seeing his interview with Letterman.
Go ahead and use this an open thread.
