What Point is Kanye West Trying to Make By Wearing a MAGA Hat w/ a Colin Kaepernick Sweater?
Kanye West is trying to say…something
On Thursday, September 7th, Kanye West showed up at The FADER offices in New York City. Andy Cohn, the president and publisher of The FADER, put up a picture on his Twitter account.

What stands out right away is the fact Kanye is wearing Donald Trump’s infamous Make America Great Again hat with a Colin Kaepernick sweater. (Trump has criticized Colin Kaepernick in the past.)
TeamKanyeDaily also posted this video that Jason Peterson took. Kanye explains how he has ownership of the hat:

It’s an, uh, interesting message that Kanye is trying to send. As soon as the photo was released, there was some grumbling around Twitter:
