Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were long one of Hollywood’s biggest power couples. They did, however, have quite a difference in opinion when it came to politics. Kardashian is a Liberal who supported Hillary Clinton in 2016. West, though, decided to go full MAGA when Donald Trump came along.
The rapper got pretty deep into Republican politics. He had a well covered appearance at the White House where mugged with Trump while wearing one of the controversial red hats. And he later announced a presidential run that ended in disaster. On Thursday, West revealed that his now ex-wife was quite embarrassed by his behavior.
The musician said yesterday in a video, “Good Lord, my wife did not like me wearing the red hat. She wanted to protect me and our family. [But I made them] a target by not aligning with Hollywood’s political stance and that was hard for our marriage.”
West also noted that he embarrassed his family by, “the way that I presented information about our family during the one and, thank God, only press conference.”
