The 38-year-old reality star, Kim Kardashian on Wednesday, took a moment during a public appearance to set the record straight about her husband’s politics.
The mother of three discussed Kanye West’s recent Trump visit during an interview with Van Jones, at Variety and Rolling Stone’s Criminal Justice Reform Summit on Wednesday.
She said, “I feel like he’s very misunderstood and the worst communicator,”. “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,” she continued. “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.”
“He is very not political, Kardashian, explaining that her husband Kanye west “just happens to like Donald Trump’s personality, but doesn’t know about the politics.” Speaking at the Criminal Justice Reform Summit, the reality star and entrepreneur elaborated that her husband is “very misunderstood and the worst communicator.”
she explained that, since the Oval Office meeting, “I’ve educated him. I think he gets really misconstrued. He will always say that he was friendly with [Trump] before . . . and is friendly with him now. . . . I think what my husband fights for—and again, he’s not the best communicator at explaining it—but what he fights for is the right to like what he wants to like, even if it’s different from what you like.”
“I could have easily been on social media and corrected him,” Kardashian said of her husband’s bold claims. “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.”
“I just felt like taking myself out of being a victim. I don’t ever really have a victim mentality… For me, personally, I’ve never taken on that,” the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star explained. “I’ve always tried to really genuinely learn. And I feel like the way I was living my lifestyle, not that anyone should go through that, but I learned so much from it, and I’m OK with my experience, and I do believe that it was meant to happen to me because I’m a different person because of it.”
“When you become a mom, you change anyway, but I think when your life is at stake over material items, it’s just… all of that stuff goes out the door. Like, none of it matters. Just my priorities completely changed, and what is important to me changed,” she continued. “I’m a better mom because of it. The things I’ll teach my kids are different.”
Kardashian said that she is trying to be respectful of her husband’s political “journey,”.
I could have been on social media and I could have corrected him. But I also do believe people have their own journeys. And I know his heart, so I know that one day what he’s been trying to say will come out. It’s [just] taking a little long, so I’m jumping in and helping him out.”
