Paris Hilton voted for Donald Trump: ‘I’ve known him since I’m a little girl’


Donald Trump and his family are close to the Hilton family. They’ve all known each other for years and years. True story: Ivanka Trump and Paris Hilton are the same age, 35 years old. Donald Trump even provided a little cover blurb for Paris Hilton’s 2004 book Confessions of an Heiress: A Tongue-in-Chic Peek Behind the Pose, where Trump called Paris a “great beauty.” The point is, the families are friendly and they’ve known each other forever. So is it surprising that Paris voted for Trump? That she based her vote on family friendship as opposed to a million other issues?

Confessions of an heiress. Paris Hilton confirmed she voted for president-elect Donald Trump in this year’s election and revealed her reason for doing so in a Thursday, November 17, interview with Australia’s The Project. Asked if she cast her ballot for longtime family friend Trump, 70, over his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, Hilton, 35, replied, “I’ve known him since I’m a little girl, so yes [I voted for Trump].”

During her Tuesday appearance on The Project, the Simple Life alum said that she appreciates when her business prowess is compared to Trump’s.

“That’s very flattering to hear, something like that, about the President of the United States,” she said. When reminded of the kind words of praise Trump wrote for the back of the socialite’s 2004 book, Confessions of an Heiress: A Tongue-in-Chic Peek Behind the Pose, Hilton couldn’t help but smile. “I have known Paris Hilton for much of her young life and have always recognized her as a great beauty,” the blurb read. “What people don’t know is that she is a great beauty on the inside as well.”

Now that Trump is set to take over the Oval Office in January, Paris is prouder than ever that his complimentary remarks are forever printed on the back of her tome. “It’s pretty amazing. I’ve known him my entire life and he’s always been incredibly supportive of me, so I’m very proud to have that on my book,” she said on Thursday.

I actually think Paris Hilton might be the perfect archetype of a Trump voter: dumb, sly, tacky, racist, homophobic, narcissistic, destructive and above all else, privileged. It goes without saying that Paris can vote for whomever she wants, as can everybody else, but if you’re going to talk about voting for Trump publicly, we have the right to call you an idiot. If Paris even did vote, she probably voted in California anyway, so at least that’s a silver lining, I guess.

    “…since I’m a little girl”? Had no idea English was her second language.

    • Lex says:

      I’ve seen this a lot in American tv shows… “Since I am *age*” was used a few times on SaTC for example.

      While I’m at it, on a few shows I’ve heard people using bring/take bizarrely.

      On Nip/Tuck, the mother was collecting items from home as her son was in hospital and she said “I’m going to bring these things to him”… weird!!!

      • Alix says:

        On the promos for “Search Party”, the lead actress says “…but I’ll need your guyses’ help” (!!!) I weep for the English language every time I hear it! And get ticked off the some writer was paid mega-bucks to write something that awful when “I need you guys to help!” is the obvious to-go. UGH.

      • HadleyB says:

        At least I understand what they are trying to say unlike some of the slang that is used today! I have no idea what grown adults are trying to say or write when they use slang these days. It’s terribly annoying.

      • “Since I’m a little girl” is not correct English. “I’m going to bring these things to him” seems totally normal to me. I live in Minnesota.

      • Tippet says:

        “Bring” and “take” are interchangeable and both are completely acceptable.

      • Brittney B. says:

        “I’m going to bring these things to him”… weird!!!

        Still trying to figure out what’s weird about this sentence. Haven’t you ever asked someone to bring you a glass of water, or bring a gift? Heck, BYOB is common in every part of the US, and it stands for “bring your own beverage”.

      • Lex says:

        Tippet bring and take are not interchangeable.

        “Take me those books”
        “When you go out, bring a sandwich”

        You bring things here and take things there.
        A simple google search supports this.

      • Alix says:

        @tippet: I took me a while, but I think the difference is that something going to/with you is “brought”, whereas something going away from you is “taken”. So technically it should be “I’m going to bring these things with me” and “I’m taking these things to him”.

        Made my brain hurt, but I think that’s it.

    • tegteg says:

      Probably because she STILL has a childish mentality. At least, that’s what I thought when I was chuckling to myself.

    • Lyka says:

      Nah, it’s just a New Yorker thing. That’s why people have heard it on SATC or RHONY or from my mother. I think it’s kind of nice (the turn of phrase, not Paris). It’s like when you hear “I was waiting on line” and immediately know it’s a New Yorker.

      More broadly, language policing really irritates the mess out of me. The criticisms most frequently fall on lower-income or racial minority populations, who have their own internal and unique methods of communication (again, this is totally unrelated to the Paris thing). Plus slang can be beautiful and multi-layered, and it’s good for your brain, promoting memory, attention, and cognitive flexibility. Ok I’m done! :)

      • Yup, Me says:

        Thank you for saying this. I was thinking it but didn’t feel like typing it out thus morning.

        There are some fascinating studies that show that BEV and other non standard English styles have their own complex rules about sentence structure and grammar. New words and terms in the English language often originate in communities with higher diversity and lower socioeconomic status (kind of like revolutions often do, if you think about it.)

        And sometimes, they’ve developed, in part, to keep outsiders from knowing what’s being said. We just live in such an overlapping culture that more people are being exposed to these words via music, social media, and other forms of entertainment.

      • nica says:

        I didn’t know those word patterns (Since I’m a kid / Waiting on line) were a New Yorker thing – so interesting! I love learning stuff like that, thanks.

      • Tippet says:

        Thank you, Lyka. It irritates me too. “Since I’m (age)” is an extremely common New York regionalism. Paris Hilton is an idiot, but not because of this. There are a lot of people commenting here who seem to imagine themselves grammar experts, but apparently don’t know how linguistics work. 🙄

      • Lex says:

        Just because something is done by many people, doesn’t make it correct!

      • Alix says:

        I had no idea it was a regionalism! Although, as someone pointed out down-thread, that doesn’t necessarily make it grammatically correct. And while I agree that “grammar policing” too often aimed at those who probably haven’t haven’t had the educational opportunities most of us have, it’s still a sorry state of affairs that knowing (if not using) standard English is so little valued.

        I read recently that Japanese tourists to the U.S. are amazed to learn that Americans frequently make such basic mistakes as mixing up “their/there/they’re” in their own native tongue. While we’re all a lot more lax with our spoken language, I think it’s a shame that we don’t place more emphasis on knowing correct grammar, spelling, etc. Not to “fit in” or make a good impression on others, but simply to ensure that *everyone* has the tools they need to clearly and effectively express themselves. When we allow kids to leave school without this basic knowledge, we do them a great disservice.

    • anon says:

      She shares Trump’s lack of understanding of basic grammar (among other things they have in common). She just said since she is a little girl… that’s why she voted for Trump? Well, if she’s admitting to not being a mature individual, that definitely explains a LOT.

  2. paolanqar says:

    Of course she did.
    She can barely read let alone understand what politics is.

  3. Hannah says:

    No wonder why Kim Kardashian and Nicole Richie outgrew her.

  4. RussianBlueCat says:

    Maybe Donald can create a new federal department for Paris Hilton? She can be Secretary of Posing and Complete Stupidity

  5. Sam says:

    And no one is shocked.

  6. Kasia says:

    Burying the lead. He also said when he met her when she was 12 he was struck by how hot she was but he didn’t want her because of her age. And presumably because it would take away time invested on complimenting the sexual attractiveness of his own daughter, I guess. BUT THERE’S NO POSSIBLE WAY THAT ANY OF THE WOMEN ACCUSING HIM OF SEXUAL ASSAULT ARE TELLING THE TRUTH!!!!

    Gag me with a spoon.

    On a scale of 1-10 petty how bad is it that one of my first thoughts is, “I’ve never really considered Paris Hilton to be a great beauty by any stretch…outside and especially not inside.”

    Plus, this is a woman who wore a “Stop Being Poor” shirt out partying. She’s always been a dick and always will be. Girl, you’ve been surpassed in fame by the woman who used to clean out your closest. Go back to being irrelevant.

  7. #creepy says:

    Melania and Donald watched her sex tape, Trump said in an interview.

  8. wood dragon says:

    Isn’t her whole branch of the family disinherited by one of the older, richer Hiltons? And if so, what does that say about them?

    • RussianBlueCat says:

      I believe her grandfather changed his will to leave most of his estate to a charity. He was disgusted by their behaviour from what I read at the time

    • A. Key says:

      OMG really???

      So there still are some honourable sane rich people left!!!

      Good on grandpa Hilton, too bad he isn’t president!

  9. Who says says:

    Let’s boycott her products also.

    • Fay says:

      I think we all know the kind of white trash that would still be buying Paris Hilton merchandise in 2016, are probably too dumb to know what a boycott is. Let stupid people be parted from their money. That is Trumps New America after all.

      • annaloo. says:

        Sadly, it’s not *white trash* buying her stuff. She’s clocked in over $2billion in sales based upon her international consumers esp strong markets in the Middle East and Asia. I know she’s a dick, I expected that she voted for Trump… As classes go, they are insulated as hell. And are we surprised he was looking at her sexual potential at 12 years of age? He’s disgusting!

  10. smcollins says:

    And here I thought (at least had hoped, anyway) that she only played at being dumb, but nope….it’s no act. Smh

  11. Fay says:

    Why must she walk, stand and pose with her pelvis thrust out like that. Cant imagine what her already pancake butt must look like when she stands like that.

  12. Patricia says:

    Well, I’ve known plenty of people since I was a little girl. My Dad’s old hippie friends, the neighbors across the street, the guy who walks up and down main street talking to himself and everyone else in a friendly way. I guess all of these people are therefore qualified to be president of the United States! Thanks, Paris, I understand life now!

  13. huh says:

    Wonky McValtrex lives!

  14. Layla says:

    Oh pullleeeze. I don’t believe for one second that this vapid assclown dragged herself to a voting booth to stand amongst the peasants and cast a ballot. No. Fing. Way.

  15. Relli says:

    Wow Paris, that’s hot.

    OT: I was listening to a podcast where they were discussing Paris because it was about the Carters as in Nick and Aaron. They mentioned how at all her DJ gigs she only plays music from when she was famous. I don’t know why but I found that hilarious.

    • JustCrimmles says:

      Gotta cling desperately to 2006. A simpler time, before we heard her caterwauling, but after we’d seen her nighttime dalliances. Memories!

  16. QQ says:

    Entirely non surprising *yawn*

  17. Fiorella says:

    I agree with the above comment that she did not vote. Read between the lines
    He’s my family friend so OF COURSE I can’t say I didn’t vote for him

  18. Val says:

    To add an another gossip :
    Paris’ aunt ‘s mother in law ( ie Maurizio’s Mother ) were featured on a French TV report, with other wealthy women who supported Trump for President during his campaign.
    I was a bit taken aback because I’d thought they were more “open minded” in LA, and Maurizio’s family less dumb.

    • annaloo. says:

      I just listened to an interview from the radio show Take Two which focuses on the US West.. They featured a segment about the Alt Right movement that was based and flourishing in – wait for it – Los Angeles. Also, Steve Bannon lives there.

      Is there any wonder we have some cultural problems with Hollywood?

  19. me says:

    I think most rich f*cks voted for Trump simply because of the huge tax break he’s going to give them all.

  20. Otaku Fairy says:

    I never liked this one, and she just gave me one more reason why. At least people aren’t going to try to pull the #NotAllTrumpSupporters card this time since it’s Paris Hilton. I’m not surprised though that there are some people in Hollywood who would vote for Donald Trump just because of their celebrity connections to him. Because screw all the important issues involved in this election. What a self-absorbed dumbass. And a racist too. Big surprise.

  21. MellyMel says:

    I mean is anyone really surprised?

  22. Moxie Remon says:

    Heart warming.

  23. Pawra says:

    Are you people ever going to stop bitching about Trump? Broken record, much?

  24. hogtowngooner says:

    Of course she voted for him. He’s a fellow celebrity, family friend and she won’t be affected one iota by any of his hateful policies. Sacrifice and hardship are for dirty poors who didn’t have the foresight to be born rich like her. Duh.

  25. Jessie says:

    This Trump voter is so turned off by your vitriol against anyone that disagrees with your far leftist views. I rarely come to this site anymore because it so offensive. Pity – because if you could just refrain from attacking people – your site is quite amusing.

    • Meandyou says:

      And we’re all quite disgusted by all the people who voted for a racist, misogynistic pig who will set us back 50 years. Go crawl into your hole now. You’ve done your job. Well done.

      • naomipaige says:

        Exactly! Trump voters should be ashamed of themselves. If they don’t like what is posted they should stay off the internet and continue to stick their heads up their bums.

    • Jess says:

      Feel free to change that rarely to never….you and your kind won’t be missed.
