Rapper Kanye West stated during a Thanksgiving prayer that was posted to Instagram on Thursday that his estranged wife Kim Kardashian “didn’t like” it when he wore his red MAGA hat and that he had embarrassed her with his presidential bid in 2020.

He alleged that his wife was very upset over his South Carolina press conference when he claimed that they had considered aborting their now eight-year-old daughter, North.

“Let’s go with politics here. Good Lord, my wife did not like me wearing the red hat. Being a good wife, [Kim] just wanted to protect me and our family,” remarked West.

“I made me and our family a target by not aligning with Hollywood’s political stance and that was hard for our marriage,” he added on Instagram. “Then I ran for president without proper preparation and no allies on either side.”

“I embarrassed my wife in the way that I presented information about our family during the one and, thank God, only press conference,” West continued.

“All my dad had to say afterwards was, ‘write your speech next time, son,'” the rapper recalled.

It was after that press conference that Kim Kardashian spoke of West’s mental health: “As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand.”

“I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health. But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health,” she said in her statement.

Seven months after that the couple separated and Kardashian filed for divorce. The couple has four children.

West addressed his failed presidential bid which cost him an estimated $14.4 million, according to NBC Chicago.

“It’s the craziest thing I’ve done and I’ve done a lot of crazy things,” he noted. The rapper then called himself “the priest of my home” and vowed to “watch my own money and secure our finances” going forward.

West stated that he wrote the Thanksgiving prayer while returning from taking his “mini-me” son Saint to his “first football game.”

“All I think about every day is how I get my family back together and how I can heal the pain that I’ve caused. I take accountability for my actions…The one thing that all my successes and failures have in common is me,” he admitted.

West continued speaking about his mental health, alcohol abuse, temper, ego, and “self-righteous” Christian behavior. When he spoke about his behavior as a Christian, he said it fueled his arrogance and made him combative.

“When I got saved it did not immediately make me a better person, it made me a self-righteous Christian. Mix that with being rich, famous, and very, very, very, very, very, very attractive and you got a molotov cocktail ready to be thrown through the window of anyone who ever disagreed with me,” he asserted. “I was arrogant with my Jesus like I just got some Jesus at the Gucci store with a stimulus check.”

“I’ve had to learn that I had to take accountability. We always judge and tell other people what they should do but we can only take accountability for ourselves and our children,” he continued.

“This Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for the family that my wife has given me. I’m thankful for the life that God has given me. And I’m thankful for your time, attention, and patience. In Jesus name, Amen,” West concluded ending his prayer.

He also spoke about his marriage and challenges while appearing at the Los Angeles Mission to deliver 1,000 meals to Skid Row ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.

“The narrative God wants is to see that we can be redeemed in all these relationships,” the rapper declared, according to Page Six. “We’ve made mistakes. I’ve made mistakes.”

“I’ve publicly done things that were not acceptable as a husband, but right now today, for whatever reason – I didn’t know I was going to be in front of this mic – but I’m here to change the narrative,” he vowed.

“I’m not letting E! write the narrative of my family. I’m not letting Hulu write the narrative of my family … I am the priest of my home,” West reiterated.

“I have to be next to my children as much as possible,” he said. ‘So, when I’m out the house, I’ve got a house right next to the house. I’m doing everything to be right next to the situation.”

“I’m trying to express this in the most sane way, the most calm way possible, but I need to be back home,” he stressed.

“If the enemy can separate Kimye, there’s going to be millions of families that feel like that separation is ok,” West claimed, “but when God brings Kimye together, there’s going to be millions of families that are going to be influenced to see that they can overcome the work of the separation, of trauma the devil has used to capitalize to keep people in misery while people step over homeless people to go to the Gucci store.”

“This Thanksgiving is all about restoring the families. Restore Thanksgiving. This morning I felt so blessed to wake up, do a workout, and be able to drive to my house, and see my wife and my kids. That’s right, I said my wife, and my children, and I want everyone to pray for my family to keep our family whole,” he finished.
