West siding with Trump supporters saying they are "bullied" for their views, which often aligns with those of Neo-Nazis and other hate groups.

Letterman shoots back that Kanye then doesn't have a say in this. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does.

Kanye sparked even more controversy when he appeared on Saturday Night Live and gave a speech on what it was like to be attacked by people who disagree with you.

Kanye then noted that people latch onto that story and get mad when it goes in a direction they weren't planning for.

"I have a friend who told me that my power is my influence", West said at one point in the interview. 'And I said my power is my ability to not be influenced'.

Presumably Kanye's prohibition about mentioning Drake comes from his own publicity people, though the silence might be an attempt to avoid any fodder for a defamation lawsuit.

The film is the first feature documentary by Emmy award-winning filmmakers, Waad al-Kateab and Edward Watts. South Korean director Bong Joon-ho has won the Cannes film festival's most prestigious award.

Kanye West is seen arriving to the 2019 Met Gala Celebrating Camp: Notes on Fashion at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2019 in New York City.

There were already signs earlier this year that Drake had cooled down a bit.

The 41-year-old rapper was devastated when Donda passed away 11 years ago at the age of just 53 and, although he has accepted she's not here in person anymore, he's convinced she's still supporting him through the highs and lows of life in spirit.

Kanye's feud with Drake is also briefly mentioned.

Speaking in a new clip from "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman", West said: "You know, she's here with us and she's guiding us".

Later, while discussing his "fear" of being a man in the #MeToo era, West says he's trying to fight the "stigma" of being a Trump supporter. Letterman reportedly never brings up Donald Trump, even though Kanye's troubling embrace of Trump has now been going on for years.
