When it comes to Donald Trump’s presidency, it seems that the majority of celebrities are on the right side of history–completely disagreeing with his policies, choices, and spelling errors. There are those, however, who feel as though Trump has tried his best and so far, has done a stand-up job.
Among those who support Donald Trump is none other than rapper Kanye West, who caused controversy back in April when he tweeted his love and support for Trump and posting a photo wearing a “Make America Great Again Hat.”
You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.

His wife, Kim Kardashian, had been an outspoken supporter of Hillary Clinton during the election. After Kanye’s April Twitter meltdown, the two disclosed that their marriage took a pretty bad hit (Kanye even referenced that the two discussed divorce on a song on his latest album).
However, it appears that Kim Kardashian has changed her tune when it comes to Donald Trump completely. In May, Kardashian met with Trump at the White House to discuss a pardon for a 62-year-old grandmother, Alice Marie Johnson, who was sentenced to life in prison without parole after a first-time, non-violent drug charge. Kardashian had been advocating for Johnson’s release, and after meeting with Trump, was able to reach her goal.
BEST NEWS EVER!!!! 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 https://t.co/JUbpbE1Bk0

When appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week, Jimmy Kimmel asked Kim about her meeting with Trump and the pardoning of Johnson–specifically how it went down and how she got Trump to agree. Additionally, the conversation took a turn towards Kanye’s love for Trump.
At the end of the conversation, Kim said she had “nothing bad to say about the President,” and that she thinks he’s “done something amazing.”
Obviously, people on Twitter were not happy with Kim’s statement, seeing as Trump has done nothing but tear America apart.
@KimKardashian really? How bout those kids locked up at the border? Maybe the ones being given up for adoption. Or, whose parents have been deported. Nothing?

Is anyone shocked that Kim Kardashian would say homophobic shit after cuddling up with Trump? She’s a piece of trash like her stupid husband.

She would if he was locking up her brown babies in cages or calling them “sons of bitches” for taking a knee in protest.

Kim Kardashian: “I haven’t been in the news yet this week, perhaps this polarizing quote about Trump will do the trick.”

And that tells you everything you need to know about Kim Kardashian. I never paid attention to the woman and this explains why.

I just read that @KimKardashian has nothing bad to say about Trump. She is a pawn. It is sad that she continues to have such an influence in today’s society because of our obsession with pop culture. I honestly don’t give a fuck about what she or Kanye think. Every move is PR

@KimKardashian Kim you have nothing to say bad about Trump cause you have no education in politics. You only lean towards things that benefit you. Like I said earlier. Why dont you & your hub, contribute to education of under privileged?? Not that is a good start. Or educate self

I was watching the Kim Kardashian clip from Kimmel, and she said something interesting (that I’ve heard before): “for Kanye, it’s not about Trump’s policies—it’s about personality. His defying the odds”.
Uneducated, patriarchal voters are the easiest prey for strongmen types.

Of course she doesn't🙄 nothing he has done affects her or her family in their little bubble. I can guarantee though if he implements something that would DIRECTLY affect her she would change her tune
