In case you missed it, David Letterman’s luscious pepaw beard is still making regular appearances on Netflix by way of his interview show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction. The first season of that show proved its title with Barack Obama as the inaugural guest. But it looks like things have gone way downhill since then. Season two will start streaming on May 31st, and David’s first guest will be Kanye West. Sure, people know who Kanye is, but I for one would like at least a little bit of an introduction explaining why. Does Kanye have anything new or insightful to share? According to The Daily Beast, the answer is no. Kanye’s still cuckoo for Trump and is accusing liberals of bullying Trump supporters.
The interview sounds like a typical Kanye klusterfuck. Daily Beast reports:
When Letterman had Obama on his show last year, he pointedly did not ask him to address his successor directly and again here he does not bring up Trump. But thankfully, Kanye does it for him.
In the midst of a somewhat confusing argument about his “fear” as a man during the #MeToo movement, Kanye says, “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.” When he wears his “Make America Great Again” hat, he says it’s “not about politics” but rather an attempt to break the stigma around showing support for Trump.
Yes, Kanye has somehow convinced himself that vociferously stumping for the sitting President of The United States and wearing a hat that sums up his entire political platform is not a political act. C’mon! Choosing which stall in a public bathroom to take a dump in is a political act. And he also probably thinks choosing to not vote isn’t political either.
“Did you vote for Trump?” Letterman asks him.
“I’ve never voted in my life,” Kanye answers.
“Then you don’t have a say in this,” Letterman shoots back to cheers from the audience.
After a brief pause, Kanye comes back with a comical, “Well you got me, you got me,” before going on his anti-13th Amendment rant that drew Trump’s praise and may or may not have been inspired by conservative activist Candace Owens.
This is all coming after Kanye claimed he was bowing out of politics when he came under fire for his participation in that whole Blexit fiasco. Kanye added:
“Have you ever been beat up in your high school for wearing the wrong hat?” he asks eventually. Asked who is doing the bulk of the bullying in America right now, he replies,
“Liberals bully people who are Trump supporters!”
Anyway, good luck on your little show, Dave. It sounds like you’ve got everything under control! Here’s a preview for the season 2.
