Kanye West got everyone’s attention Thursday after he showed up at the Fader magazine office wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat with a Colin Kaepernick sweatshirt.
“11 a.m. meetings, amirite @thefader @kanyewest,” said Andy Cohen — president and publisher of Fader magazine — via Twitter, along with a snapshot of West sporting the red “MAGA” hat made popular during the 2016 election by voters who backed President Donald Trump. He also wore a white sweatshirt that read in black lettering, “Colin Kaepernick.” (RELATED: Kanye West Defends His Support Of President Trump On Jimmy Kimmel Live)

It was not the first time the 41-year-old rapper showed support for the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback. When Nike launched its latest campaign featuring Kaepernick, West tweeted that he believes “in giving everyone a voice.”
“I stand for giving everyone a voice. Adidas giving me a voice and Nike giving Colin voice on a big business level makes the world a more advanced place,” the performer tweeted.
