Kanye West is 'mentally sick' but Kim Kardashian's 'too busy selling underwear pics' to help, Piers Morgan says
In an opinion piece, the 'Good Morning Britain' host said Kanye's 1st presidential rally proves he's having a 'very nasty episode' and needs help urgently
Piers Morgan slammed Kanye West after his highly-controversial campaign rally and said it was the "most shocking and disturbing celebrity meltdowns" he had ever seen before stating West's wife Kim Kardashian is "too busy selling underwear pics" to help him.
The rapper had announced he would be running for POTUS on Independence Day and had his first presidential rally in South Carolina on Sunday, July 19, that made national and international headlines for all the wrong reasons.
A highly-emotional Kanye, who was wearing a bulletproof vest and had '2020' shaved into his head, broke down in tears as he revealed Kim wanted to abort their first daughter North West, criticized slave abolitionist Harriet Tubman, said parents would receive a financial boost and everyone with a baby should automatically receive a million dollars and called for "marijuana to be free".
In an opinion piece for the Daily Mail, Morgan, best known for being a host on 'Good Morning Britain,' said the rally had proved Kanye was mentally sick and "very sick man having a very nasty 'episode'" and that he needs help urgently.
Morgan said that, while his previous rants reeked of "attention-seeking narcissism" he was very troubled by some of the things he had heard from Kanye. Referring to the Chicago native's comments that Tubman "never actually freed the slaves" and "just had the slaves go work for other white people," he wrote, "This about a woman who repeatedly risked her life, with a massive bounty on her head, to free at least 300 slaves over a 10-year period."
He went on to address Kanye's revelation that Kim was very close to aborting North West, something that reportedly left the Kardashian family "seriously concerned and upset." The rapper also shared his father wanted to abort him before he broke down in tears and yelled, "I almost killed my daughter! I ALMOST KILLED MY DAUGHTER!"
"I found the whole thing utterly horrifying and cringe-making," Morgan wrote. "What kind of husband and father starts screaming hysterically on live TV about nearly aborting one of their children? The daughter he was talking about was the couple's firstborn, North, who is now seven years old. North will now know that for months before she was born, her parents contemplated aborting her. That's a very hurtful thing for any child to learn at that age, let alone one who will now have to see and hear the world gossiping about it because her mother and father are so famous"
Morgan brought up Kim and questioned where she was while Kanye, "a mentally ill man with a lengthy history of bi-polar episodes," was "self-imploding before the public's eyes in a way that should horrify any wife." He said she should "stop posting titillating pictures of herself to millions of strangers" and force him to get help because it was "obvious to anyone with half a brain cell" that his presidential run "was going to blow up like this."
"Her only public pronouncements in recent days have been to post more semi-naked photos of herself on social media from her new underwear collection, to drive yet further vast wads of cash into the Kardashian bank vaults," he wrote. "He's getting no help from anyone who claims to love him. They're all just sitting back and watching him humiliate himself on a massive stage. What Kanye West needs is an intervention."
