Today, Kanye wore a “Make America Great Again” hat with a sweatshirt that had Kaepernick’s name printed across the front. The “I Love It” rapper appeared to be caught off guard in his casual yet controversial attire by president and publisher of The Fader, Andy Cohn. Cohn posted the photo via Twitter with caption “11am meetings, amitire @thefader @kanyewest”.

We are pretty sure anything West does isn’t by accident. He recently praised Nike for their decision to sign Kaepernick stating, “I stand for giving everyone a voice”.
As for the MAGA hat, he stated today in a clip, ‘I wear my hat. I redesigned it. I changed the brim. I mean, I changed the shape right here and I put positive energy into the hat”.
“But it’s my hat, I redesigned it. I changed the brim, I mean I changed the shape right here and I put positive energy into the hat.” @kanyewest at the @thefader offices this morning.

Ye’s choice of fashion is clearly his way of supporting both Trump and Kaepernick. However, could Ye also be stirring the pot to garner more publicity during the brink of his album release this week?
This kid is lost ! He didn’t invent caps so how is he going to redesign it. Is he going to patent his hat ? You can’t serve two masters son ! You can’t support Trump and Kapernick so keep it real and put on the MAGA hat that you have in your closet. Come out of the closet Kanye!
