When describing mega-star Kim Kardashian, one wouldn’t normally say “political pundit.” But in a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, she has decided to put herself — and her family — in the political spotlight.
Reality mega-star Kim Kardashian reportedly believes that her and Kanye West’s four-year-old child would make a better president than Donald Trump.
“Anyone can run the U.S. better. My daughter would be better,” she said.
That said, it is a challenge to respect the judgment of someone who knowingly named her presidential offspring after an intercardinal direction.
The reality star, who first gained notoriety for a lurid sex tape, feels that America is just not safe anymore.
Referring to the Trump presidency, she said:
It’s really scary, the world that we’re living in now. And when you did feel safe at home, now with Trump in presidency you just don’t feel safe any more.
But it’s hard to imagine that Kardashian, who was robbed at gunpoint in a Parisian hotel, felt safe at home after a “home jacking” incident last fall, either. After Kardashian made revealing posts on social media, the criminals knew where she lived and that she would be alone.
She didn’t blame then-President Barack Obama for that one.
In addition to telling the world that she feels ‘unsafe’ with Trump in the White House, the reality television star encourages the ridiculous belief that bullies have somehow been empowered by the election of Trump, and are now reveling in their unchecked domination of grown men and women all across America.
There’s so much cyber-bullying and negativity in comments to everyone. I think it’s so wrong. … I hope it changes. … We can only go further if everyone uplifts each other and supports one another.
Kardashian has a habit of reflexively calling anyone who disagrees with her a bully. During a family retreat to Costa Rica this spring, and as cameras were rolling for the family’s hit show, she told sister Khloe to “shut the [censored] up,” after her older sibling complained that the family was not spending enough time together. Kim added, “You’re like a big bully that bullies all of us!”
Just like the president, apparently.
Most people would agree that celebrities, at least of Kardashian’s stature, should stay out of political conversations that challenge their intellectual faculties. The celebrity admits that sometimes she just can’t bite her tongue:
Sometimes I feel like I want to speak out more about political issues. You have to be really careful about what you say, because a lot of things can be taken in the wrong context and I always want to be respectful, I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.
Certainly, Kardashian learned this lesson the hard way when, in the aftermath of the deadly jihadist Manchester bombing at an Ariana Grande concert, she posted a flattering picture of herself with Grande at an unrelated event.
The photo was deemed insensitive and oddly self-promotional at the time by many Twitter users:

If posting a pic of herself as some sort of narcissistic tribute was deemed politically insensitive, a recent beauty advertisement promoting herself with heavily edited, darkened skin is downright cold-blooded. Many of her (former) followers on social media contrasted the glamour photos with recently-captured images of Kardashian to prove that she came dangerously close to a appropriating a “black face” visage.
Most recently, an editorial depicting Kim Kardashian channeling former First Lady Jackie Kennedy for Interview Magazine sparked outrage, with some accusing her of again darkening her skin to match her daughter’s and others decrying the comparison of the reality star with the beloved former First Lady.
Dinner party diversions
Kardashian apparently has an extremely complex means by which she evaluates public officials, carefully weighing their political agendas to determine if they merit her support.
She revealed some of her secrets in a recent analysis of President George W. Bush, remarking, “I love George, though. I just think he’s cute. Like a cute little president…. And the [Bush] kids sent us a baby gift.”
Hopefully, if North West ever runs for the highest political office in the land, she will strive to attain attributes that extend beyond her mother’s requirements.
