Over the weekend an alleged quote from Kim Kardashian’s latest interview in Wonderland circulated the social media about who she’s voting for come this November. The quote stated that she was “on the fence” after having a talk with Caitlyn Jenner who is a Trump supporter. The quote definitely left many confused as it was just a few months ago when Kim posted a selfie with her, Clinton and husband Kanye West on Instagram to much excitement.
In the PDF version of the article, that quote doesn’t appear at all. The only mention of Trump is in regards to Kanye West running for president in 2020.
Is Kim prepared to be First Lady? She laughs. “Look at all the awful things they’re doing to Melania [Trump], putting up the naked photos [of her]… I’ll say to Kanye: ‘Babe, you know the kind of photos they’d put up of me!’ Haha.” Who would he be running for? “I don’t wanna put words in his mouth, but I’m pretty sure the Democrats. Maybe independent? I don’t know how serious he is about it. We’ll see…”
After the initial quote about Kim possibly voting for Trump made its rounds, she released a very detailed statement about how she is, without a shadow of a doubt, voting for Hillary Clinton.
A “quote” of mine was released yesterday causing my phone to blow up by friends, family and even both candidates’ camps, so I want to explain the context in which I said I was “on the fence” about my vote.
There was a point when I wasn’t 100% sure I was even going to vote in this election; I didn’t want to vote blindly. But I also thought about how not voting would mean that I wasn’t making my voice heard, so I decided to talk to my closest friends and family who I love and trust, to have an open conversation about politics.
I believe we owe it to ourselves, and to each other, to ask questions. To do our research so that we vote for the candidate who represents our own beliefs. We should start at a place of openness, receptiveness and honesty, and we should talk to those we love, trust and respect.
I had a long conversation with Caitlyn, who has always been open about her political views, and she encouraged me to do my research before making my decision and then vote for the candidate whose policies aligned with the things that matter most to me. And so that’s what I did. I thought about the things that are so important to me that they outweigh everything else, such as gun control and protecting women’s rights to safe and legal abortion.
I found that without a doubt, I stand with Hillary. I’m with her. I believe Hillary will best represent our country and is the most qualified for the job. This year, I’m not just voting for myself, but also for my children, and I took that into careful consideration when I made my decision. Now that I have made my choice I want to be clear… I would never judge anyone based on their political or religious beliefs. I believe that both candidates have the intention of making the country a safer and stronger place for every American, they just have different ideas about how we get there.
God bless America for allowing us to even make these decisions – there are so many in this world who are not so privileged.
