PIERS Morgan has slammed Kim Kardashian for “putting her ambition before” troubled husband Kanye West.
The Good Morning Britain presenter has hit out at reality star Kim for her support of Kanye’s presidential bid amid a bipolar episode.
He claims Kim put her own wants to be First Lady ahead of getting Kanye the help he needs when she supported his announcement earlier this month.
Yesterday Kim opened up to fans about Kanye’s mental health and asked for support.
But Piers isn’t having it and has called her out in his column.
He wrote in the Mail that it was good to see Kim acknowledging Kanye’s illness and need for treatment.
He also admitted that she must be going through a very complicated and painful time herself but he insisted that she bears some responsibility for what has happened.
Piers said: “But none of her eloquent words yesterday, which attracted widespread praise and sympathy, give Kim Kardashian a pass for her complicit behaviour from the moment Kanye declared he was running for president on July 5.
“It was obviously the very last thing anyone suffering from bi-polar should be doing.”
Piers added: “Self-evidently, someone who suffers such severe episodes like this should not be President of the United States.
“Yet, Kim Kardashian watched her sick husband say he intended to run for president and enthusiastically endorsed it on the same day by retweeting his announcement with an emoji of an American flag.”
He added: “Kim has known for at least four years, from when Kanye was first hospitalised and diagnosed, that his bi-polar mental illness makes him a very unstable person prone to severe episodes where he often behaves in a dangerously erratic manner.
“Yet she still threw her huge social media firepower behind his presidential bid, knowing it would be a potential catastrophe if he actually won.
“So before everyone goes overboard with their cheers for Kim Kardashian’s ‘inspiring courage’ in speaking out about her husband’s mental illness, remember that she vilified the media as liars for saying the same thing two years ago, and she was prepared to put her own chilling ambition before Kanye’s health and America’s interests to back his presidential run.”
