Kim Kardashian West was less than happy with Kanye West’s wearing of a “Make America Great Again” cap during the rapper’s ill-fated 2020 run for president, according to the hip-hop mogul.
“Good Lord, my wife did not like me wearing the red hat,” the artist, who now goes by the name of Ye, revealed in a video titled “Thanksgiving Prayer” that he shared to Instagram on Thursday.
Kardashian West “wanted to protect me and our family,” said West, but he’d made them “a target by not aligning with Hollywood’s political stance and that was hard for our marriage.”
West’s run for president “embarrassed” Kardashian West because of “the way that I presented information about our family during the one and, thank God, only press conference,” he added.
West referred to Kardashian West as his “wife” throughout the video.
West donned a MAGA cap during his self-funded and ultimately failed bid to win the White House, even declaring it made him “feel like Superman” during a wild 2018 exchange with then-President Donald Trump.
Trump and West gushed over each other throughout the former’s presidency until the musician declared in a somewhat contradictory July 2020 interview that he was “taking the red hat off.”
