Kim Kardashian said: "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."
She may be the most popular reality TV star ever, and perhaps even the most beautiful, but interest in Kim Kardashian right now is not on her svelte figure nor her private life, the public is eager to find out which way she will tilt in the looming US Presidential debates – Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. While Trump has made a huge number of sexist and other derogatory remarks about women, Hillary Clinton too has a questionable past, especially how she handled her email account, her secrecy about the condition of her health, but most of all about how she handled her relationship with Bill Clinton after his affair became public knowledge. Considering she is so popular, the interest in her vote had soared.
With some reports saying that the 35-year-old Kim Kardashian may well vote for Donald Trump, the reality TV star went public and revealed that that was not her choice in a statement she released. The reports were powered by a statement that she herself made about being “on the fence” about casting her vote, when questioned on whether she will vote for the billionaire Trump.
The negative reactions from a cross-section of society forced Kim Kardashian’s hand and she rushed her statement out in which she asserted that she was voting Democrat and Hillary Clinton was it. Kim said, “Without a doubt, I stand with Hillary”.
Kim Kardashian added: “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.”
The statement revealed by Daily Mail was the culmination of a row that erupted from an initial interview that Kim Kardashian gave to Wonderland magazine. However, while the magazine did not use these quotes, they were subsequently published by The Evening Standard’s website, citing an interview Kim did with Wonderland magazine.
Kim Kardashian was taken aback by the reactions to her initial ‘fence’ statement as she mentioned in her statement. She said it caused “…my phone to blow up by friends, family and even both candidates camps” and therefore, she felt she should “explain the context in which (she) said (she) was ‘on the fence’ about (her) vote.”
