Rap artist Kanye West went off and made it clear to former late night host David Letterman that supporters of President Donald Trump are “bullied” by liberals on a daily basis.
During an appearance on Letterman’s Netflix talk show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, West said Trump supporters are “treated like enemies of America.”
“This is like my thing with Trump — we don’t have to feel the same way, but we have the right to feel what we feel,” West said.
“So if I see a person that I admire talking about Donald Trump can think whatever he does. I wonder if those thoughts, indirectly, aren’t hurting people who are already being hurt,” Letterman interjected.
West went on to argue that Trump supporters are “treated like enemies of America because that’s what they felt.”
West also dropped the hammer when Letterman tried to make a case against the idea that Trump is a “savior” to those who voted for him.
“Have you ever been beaten up in your high school for wearing the wrong hat?” West asked Letterman, to which he said “no.”
When Letterman asked who is doing the bulk of the bullying in America right now, West shot back: “Liberals bully people who are Trump supporters!”
West has not been shy about his support for Trump and his disdain for liberals who try to bully those who approve of the president.
During an interview late last year with WGCI 107.5 Radio, West boldly predicted that Trump will do whatever it takes to “do the work” to be a great president for black voters.
“I know black people that voted for Trump that were scared to say out loud. Now that’s some 1984 thought-control programming shi*,” West said when asked about his support for Trump not being popular in Hollywood.
West was then asked about the historic violence in Chicago, where he is from. The rapper said former President Barack Obama had eight years to do something, and never did.
He said Trump winning the election gave black Americans the opportunity “as an entire community to see things that we weren’t seeing when Obama was in office. We as a collective wasn’t woke. Now everybody is woke.”
West also made headlines last year during an interview with ABC late night host Jimmy Kimmel.
When Kimmel asked about his support for the president, West stared down the liberal host and said he wasn’t going to change his opinion on something because extreme leftists tried to bully him.
“Liberals can’t bully me,” West said, noting that he is tired of leftists like Kimmel always trying to shame and pressure him every time he voices support for Trump.
The rapper refuses to back down for showing his support for Trump.
