By CCN: Trying to recapture his former “Late Show” fame, David Letterman now serves as the interviewer and host of a Netflix program entitled “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction,” currently in its second season. Marking off the first interview of that season is controversial and outspoken musician Kanye West, who is widely known for his support of President Donald Trump.
In an industry largely dominated by left-wing politics, West has the guts to examine America’s current political spectrum with an open mind and say what he truly feels. West asks Letterman if he’d ever been “beat up” in high school for “wearing the wrong hat.” Many conservatives have been attacked for wearing this hat. It’s a scary thought that you can step out of your home these days and be jumped just for wearing red headgear.
Letterman asks Kanye if supporting Trump doesn’t “indirectly” hurt people “who are already being hurt.” Gee, Letterman… Do you think having relations with half your staff members and putting their careers in jeopardy could have been hurting them? Either way, Kanye is quick to respond that the only ones being hurt right now are Trump supporters, who are often treated like “enemies of America.”
