Kanye West once again came to the defense of President Donald Trump and his supporters in an interview with the famously anti-Trump celebrity David Letterman.
West launched into a defense of his relationship with the president in the interview set to premiere on Netflix.
“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 told Letterman while opining on the “Me Too” movement.
He went on to explain that he wore a “Make America Great Again” hat not in support of the president’s politics, but as an attempt to remove the stigma surrounding support of the president.
“Did you vote for Trump?” Letterman asked.
“I’ve never voted in my life,” West responded.
“Then you don’t have a say in this,” Letterman said.
Later, West argued with Letterman when the host attempted to get him to condemn what some call voter suppression efforts by Republican lawmakers.
West instead defended supporters of Trump who were being “treated like enemies of America because that’s what they felt.”
“Have you ever been beat up in your high school for wearing the wrong hat?” West challenged Letterman.
Letterman asked him who the majority of bullies were, in his opinion.
“Liberals bully people who are Trump supporters!” responded West.
The interview of West will be released on Netflix on May 31.
