Kim Kardashian had posed with Hillary Clinton for a presidential selfie a year ago and seemed to be in the democratic corner with her outspoken husband, rapper Kanye West. She had gone as far as revealing to GQ magazine in June, that she was Team Hillary.
However, the most famous TV reality star is suddenly considering a vote for Republican Donald Trump. Recent conversations with her step-parent Caitlyn Jenner seemed to have made some kind of key impression on Kim K, and now she’s up in the air on who to vote for in this November’s presidential election. “I’m on the fence,” she has said in recent interviews.
Kim K knows Mr. Trump and appeared on one of his “The Apprentice” episodes in 2010, to launch her signature fragrance in Perfumania’s 370+ stores. In addition, her younger sister Khloe was one of the Celebrity Apprentices on Mr. Trump’s show several years ago.
Caitlyn Jenner has been a life-long Republican, although she has become the most familiar face of the transgender movement. The former Olympian decathlete has been very vocal about her opposition to Hillary Clinton, saying that the former secretary of state “(she) couldn’t care less about women.”
Although Donald Trump has gone after a large number of visible people, he has not bashed Kim K yet and apparently has no plans to. He told Yahoo! Politics that Kim K “was always nice to me.”
Meanwhile, the sexy reality television star is even pondering the year 2020, the time Kanye might be ripe for a presidential bid. Kim K is trying to envision herself as the country’s First Lady but has some reservations. In an interview with Wonderland magazine, the 35-year-old mother of two suggested her past might come back to haunt her, just like the troubles dogging Melania, Donald Trump’s third wife. Publications were posting naked photos of the former model, and Kim K, who has disrobed for numerous photo shoots, is afraid she would receive similar embarrassing treatment by the media.
As far as what party Kanye associates himself with, Kim K believes her iconic rapper husband would probably run as a democrat or possibly an independent.
The presidential election is set for Tuesday, November 8, 2016.
