American rapper, Kanye West is in the news again.
This time, the rap mogul stepped out wearing a President Trump campaign hat and a Colin Kaepernick sweatshirt. He made an appearance on Thursday morning in the officers of New York music publication, The Fader.
According to Rolling Stone, West’s MAGA hat is not the same version offered at the president’s campaign store. The pairing is quixotic, to say the least. President Trump has been a harsh critic of former NFL player Colin Kaepernick’s invention of protesting during the national anthem, so wearing a Trump campaign hat with a shirt celebrating anthem protester Colin Kaepernick is quite a pairing. Almost like West is trying to keep his feet in both, opposing camps.
See photo below and social media reactions to his combo.
