Kim Kardashian: Kanye likes ‘Donald Trump’s personality, doesn’t know about the politics’

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have dinner at with Khloe during LA wildfires

Late September, Kanye West started talking about going off his meds and how he was no longer in the Sunken Place. He tried to beef with Drake, and then he turned his attention to politics. He went on Saturday Night Live and ranted and raved about how much he loves Donald Trump. He was a full-on MAGA mess on social media. And then he put the cherry on top of the Deplorable cake by visiting the White House, giving an impromptu, unhinged press conference in the Oval Office, and declaring his love for Donald Trump in an obscene rant that seemed to even make Trump uncomfortable. My point? Kanye has been canceled for a while now, and no amount of post-mess clean-up by Kanye’s wife will fix it. But Kim is trying. Kim talked about Ye at Rolling Stone’s Criminal Justice Reform Summit and it was awful.

At Variety and Rolling Stone’s Criminal Justice Reform Summit, when CNN commentator Van Jones implied that Kardashian West and her husband have different politics, the reality TV star objected.

“I feel like he’s very misunderstood and the worst communicator,” Kardashian West said. “But, when we talk about it, we have very similar politics. He’s very not political, actually, he just happens to like Donald Trump’s personality, but doesn’t know about the politics. So, I’ve educated him recently. I think it gets really misconstrued. He will always say he was friendly with him before, and he’s the same person and friendly with him now. I could also co-exist with someone and still have different political views. My mom and my step-dad did that. It’s fine to be different and have your own view.”

Kardashian West continued explaining the intent behind her husband’s recent White House appearance: “What he fights for is the right to like what he wants to like. Even if it’s different from what you like. He never said, ‘Okay, I know what’s going on with immigration, and I know this and I know that.’ If he really knew, he would feel very compassionate about it. He never said that he supports that. I know it’s very confusing because when you see someone wearing a red hat you would think that they are supporting that. But he’s just fighting for free thought and freedom to like a person even if it’s not the popular decision.”

Jones responded, “I’ve said this to you before, and I’ll say it to you again, I love the way you love your husband.” After dubbing Kardashian West the Kanye translator, she insisted that she knows his heart but still wants him to have his own path.

“After he went to the White House or has been outspoken, I could have easily been on social media and corrected him,” Kardashian West revealed. “But I believe people have their own journeys. I know his heart, so I know that one day what he’s been trying to say will come out. It’s taken a little long so I’m jumping in and helping out, but I know his heart so I never really stress too much.”

Controversial opinion: Kim is too smart to actually believe the argument she’s making, and Van Jones absolutely should have called her out on that. Kim is basically saying that everybody has the right to believe whatever they want, however hurtful, however deplorable, however ignorant, racist, misogynistic, violent and it’s all the same. She would be the one arguing that “Kanye actually doesn’t know much about concentration camps, he just supports the Nazis because he likes their personalities and he believes in their right to free thought.” Or how about this: “Kanye doesn’t know anything about the thousands of babies thrown into cages by this administration, he just likes it when a white supremacist does his thing and he’ll defend his right to be violently ignorant all day long.”

    she likes his personality?


    • Raina says:

      If she likes Kanyes personality, I can see how she likes Trump. Similar rambling egocentrics talking out of their butts. Three things here, however…
      1) She’s basically saying: My husband is a moron who likes other morons and doesn’t know why but the red hat is kinda cute.
      2) I have THREE kids with this moron so I have no choice but to, um, like, defend him (gulp).
      3) The fact that Kim Kardashian is, like, anyones translator is, like, literally the hill I’m going to die laughing on.

      It’s one thing to stand by your man, it’s a completely OTHER thing to stand by as your ill man supports such an abomination all cuz he thinks that Orange fat azz is kinda cool. How do you come out in such strong defense of someone without understanding, or knowing, their policies? Answer: Stop taking your meds.

      I would NEVER support my husband going full man crush on Trump. This would end it. It would speak to me about what type of person he is. It’s not just a political disagreement (as in, hey, I lean slightly more left on economic matters honey), it’s a LIFESTYLE. It’s WHO you are if you like him.
      Her damage control, while somewhat expected, is as weak as she is.
      Look at Caitlyn Jenner and Kris? I couldn’t understand how anyone can stay married to what ended up being such a selfish bitch.

      P.s. Kim, freedom of speech and freedom to hate are VERY different; One creates a dialogue and the other destroys the person speaking it.

  2. LORENA says:

    His beef was with Tyson Beckford not Tyrese lol

  3. whatWHAT? says:

    but his personality is just as repugnant as his politics, so…

    …how does that make it better?

    STILL CANCELLED. and Kim, just STFU.

    • minx says:

      She and her husband are both idiots. She thinks by saying Kanye likes Trump’s personality that makes it more acceptable. And he “doesn’t know” about the politics? BS!

  4. Steff says:

    This may be a controversial opinion but I dislike Van Jones. He’s not a good interviewer and his ‘’this is when Trump became president’’ hot take made me dispise him.

    • LahdidahBaby says:

      THANK you, Steff, for bring that up! I don’t despise Van, but I’m no longer the fan I once was. I used to be a HUGE Van Jones admirer, but the moment you’re recalling was the moment when he let down all the admiration and confidence I’d had in him.

    • Lala11_7 says:

      @Steff…I can assure you…YOUR COMMENT IS NOT CONTROVERSIAL!!!! He’s complicit…lazy…and trifling AF….I actually…DO DESPISE HIM!

    • JoJo says:

      Completely agree, Steff! His fawning interview a couple of weeks ago with the young princeling, Jared made me gag.

    • Mel says:

      I used to really like him and admire the way he chose to believe the best in people but then, after a while, when is enough, enough, you know?
      Going back to Kanye liking his personality. His personality is on par with his politics: ROTTEN.

  5. Lightpurple says:

    Stop making excuses for an adult male who has chosen to align himself with Nazis.

  6. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    These people aren’t worth discussion lol.

  7. Veronica S. says:

    I love that her defense of him basically boils down to, “He’s a vapid idiot who doesn’t really understand anything.”

  8. Electric Tuba says:

    Kanye is your problem Kim. Just take him to the doctor (not the Botox one, stupid) and let the man heal for about two years. We are all stocked up on batshit around here ok

  9. Ann says:

    She’s right about Kanye not being a good communicator. Kim can blather on about understanding him all she wants but I really don’t think even she gets what’s happening with him over the last few years. Only Kanye can write the Ye-to-Coherent Thought translation manual but he’d have to start taking his meds first.

    • Raina says:

      Ye to coherent thought translation manual killed me dead. Destroyed me in public at a never-ending Sears line (they’re closing, shyts almost free).
      I have to use this, Ann, but I promise I will cite you.

  10. Kitten says:

    These people are so dumb SMDH.

    • LahdidahBaby says:

      Fraid so. And the platform they have is obscene. So many stupid ideas and excuses are getting obscene amounts of air time.

  11. tw says:

    So he likes the personality of a person who lies with every breath, insults, demeans and divides. OK, gotcha, much better. SMDH.

    On a separate note, I’ll never understand using plastic surgery to make your hips wider.

  12. Swack says:

    “. . . he just happens to like Donald Trump’s personality . . . ” Racism, misogyny, homophobe is part of his personality (to me) and it drives his politics. So, no Kim, not ever giving Kanye a pass.

    • LahdidahBaby says:


    • KC says:

      Pretty much what SWACK said. My first thoughts were🤔 “I think I like his personality LESS than I like his politic, in fact it’s the personality that I find most offensive.”

      One can have a halfway decent personality but still fumble with politics and one can have a horrid personality but support and enact halfway decent politics. However, in his case, his nasty personality informs and fuels his nasty politics”. Soooo…….saying Kanye doesn’t understand his politics but just likes his personality is so much worse. He has a STINK personality! Nothing to enjoy or approve.☹️

  13. Beth says:

    Personality? Trumps egotistical, ignorant “personality” is dangerous to our country and is nothing to admire. Even if a politician has a wonderful personality, you should know something about their political views before you go out worshiping, cheering for and defending the person all over social media for the world to see. Kanye is finished AF

  14. Valerie says:

    That’s just as bad.

  15. Rice says:

    Kim has turned into Kellyanne Conway.

  16. Spikey says:

    How often do you think Amber Rose thanks God that she got out early?

  17. jay says:

    God, she’s stupid. Can someone please tell her you can’t wear a MAGA hat ambiguously?

  18. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    Kanye seemed pretty on board with Trump’s politics. I think Kim is trying to dig Kanye out of the “crazy as f**k” hole he dug himself into. His wishy washy behavior just shows everything he does is for attention. And when the attention interferes with the sales of any of his crap designs he backtracks.

    • Raven says:

      She actually only making it worse because Drump is a sexist, racist, ignorant, Nazi who’s okay with child molesting and sexual assaults women. All those thing have nothing to do with Drumps politics, that is just his personality.

  19. Lynne says:

    If I were Kanye, I’d be thinking that my wife threw me under the bus.
    That I’m not a good communicator and don’t think much.
    “If he really knew…..” kim, herself the great thinker is talking like he is slow.

  20. Bluetooth says:

    What in the ever loving Demolition Man kind of outfits are they wearing?

  21. Snowflake says:

    BS! In his meeting w trump, he mentioned getting off the plantation and blacks killing each other in the same breath as cops. He’s full MAGA

  22. Vanessa says:

    I don’t why Kim is trying so hard to convince the public that kanye only like trump because his personality not for his policies. I guess kanye stan for trump has finally affected Kim business because she was telling everyone that kanye has right to freedom of speech and his entitled to his opinions not to long go now its oh kanye doesn’t understand policies he just like trump as person that makes it worse because kanye like a person who is ok with stripped human beings of their right laughing and calling woman who come forward about sexual assault as liars. Separate kids from their parents and putting them in the cage that who kayne likes as person maybe Kim should spend less defending kanye because the more she tries to explain things it makes things worse .

  23. fluff says:

    Realizing how grateful I am for this little corner of the world, where dissorted things are brought back into reality of what they are. Your comparison to Nazis is done so well, thank you for your way of simplifying bullshit sold every day. Please do not stop 🧡

  24. JANAK says:

    Yeah, I tend not to put too much weight into what a vapid narcissist thinks about another vapid narcissist.

  25. A Fan says:

    It’s always a spin with these assholes.

    [*How do they stay relevant?*]

  26. Mylene says:

    I think the worst part is the people who follow this peoples. That make me sad to think million and million peopls buy the crap they sell and agree with them.

  27. Gaaahhh says:

    Ok so when my hubby and I have differences of political opinions, we either discuss it or I tell him not to discuss it with me. Doesn’t mean that neither of us understand the opposing views. It means we agree to disagree. But I don’t say that he is a moron or whatever Kim is saying here.

    And when she mentions her mom and stepdad having political differences, as I recall they aren’t together anymore. And Caitlyn is just as stupid about his political knowledge as well.

    Out of all the stupid crap that Kanye said, the one that bugged me the most (and there were many) was when he told Trump that Kanye supported HIlary EXCEPT her slogan was “I’m with her” and he felt that the slogan didn’t make him feel he could play ball with his son. Like WTF?? That shows his level of idiocy and sexism IMHO

  28. Hoot says:

    Does Kim not realize the black spandex pants she wears show everything underneath with a camera flash? Nice undies, Kim. Arghhh.

    Why does he dress like a hobo.
