UPDATE: Kim Kardashian recently clarified that she is, in fact, voting for Hillary Clinton. We can all rest easy now.
If you need a dose of shockingly disappointing news today, you've come to the right place. According to an interview Kim Kardashian did with Wonderland, she's now seriously considering voting for Trump.
If you recall, Kim came out in support of Hillary just this past June in GQ. And almost a year prior to now, she and her husband Kanye took this selfie with Hillary, which makes it pretty clear that she's been considering the candidate for some time.
So why the change of heart? Apparently it's her stepmom, Caitlyn Jenner, who's to blame.
In the magazine she says, “At first I thought, ‘Oh my God, I’m so Hillary [Clinton]’, but I had a long political call with Caitlyn last night about why she’s voting Trump. I’m on the fence."
That bit of information should be no surprise at all. Jenner has been criticized for many things as of late, especially after having come out as transgender (given her politics).
On an episode of the now-cancelled television reality show I Am Cait, she said of presidential nominee Clinton, "I would never ever, ever vote for Hillary. We’re done if Hillary becomes president. The country is over.” If that wasn't enough, she reassured the world that she's still a Republican (despite their blatant anti-LGBTQ rhetoric), got some flak for expressing very homophobic comments herself, and even had the nerve to say that a Trump presidency would be great for women.
It could be Kim's own experience with Trump in 2010 on Celebrity Apprentice that may be persuading her as well, but then again, her sis Khloe had the same experience and loathes the guy (like a normal person).
Given the fact that Kim is mother to two black children, I'm keeping the faith that Kanye or her own words will come back to her and spark a lightning bulb. Other than that, all I can do is sigh and look away.
