Rock The Vote, Day 5: Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian

Don’t forget. Kanye West is running for president, too.

Rock The Vote is an original series, where I make an educated and researched guess on who certain celebrities are voting for Nov. 3, 2020.

Kris Jenner is ex-wife to Robert Kardashian and Caitlyn Jenner. She is mother and momager to Kim Kardashian, a reality TV and social media star. Kris Jenner is also mother and manager to Kourtney, Khloe, Rob, Kendall and Kylie.

In February 2016, Kris Jenner said she was both a fan of presidential nominees Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

“I’m just not a very political person,” Jenner said, “and I keep some of my views to myself.”

Later that year, Kris Jenner fully supported Hillary Clinton in her run for president.

The Kardashian-Jenner clan are not Trump fans. When Khloe Kardashian appeared on Celebrity Apprentice, a reality show President Donald Trump used to host, Trump called Khloe Kardashian a “fat piglet,” according to the Huffington Post. In a 2017 interview, Kim Kardashian said “My daughter would be better,” as president than Trump.
However, in 2017, while appearing on Ellen, Kris Jenner said her boyfriend Corey Gamble was “lucky” to meet with Trump.

In 2018, Kim Kardashian began a working relationship with Trump when she asked the president to pardon Alice Marie Johnson, a woman who was serving a life sentence in prison for a first-time drug offense. Kim Kardashian also persuaded Trump to pass the First Step Act, which is an act to reduce the population in federal prisons. Kim Kardashian faced criticism for meeting with Trump, but she defended her choice by saying he was the only way to get Johnson and others out of prison.

In 2018, Kim Kardashian’s husband, Kanye West, posted a series of tweets supporting Trump, even though he didn’t vote for the president in 2016. In one of those tweets, West mentioned that Kim Kardashian called him to clear up that he doesn’t “agree with everything Trump does.” In 2020, West tried to run for president and it’s still unclear what his platform or game plan was. Tabloids have reported West and Kardashian are on the brink of divorce.

In an April profile for The New York Times, Kim Kardashian says she won’t endorse anyone for president in 2020.

Kim Kardashian has made great strides to advocate for prison reform and is even studying law to eventually become a lawyer. Her relationship with Trump could help her get more people out of prison. If Kim voted for Trump, she might convince Kris to do the same.
However, I believe Kris Jenner is voting for Biden. I also believe Kim Kardashian is voting for Biden, and she’s not publicly endorsing anyone this election because she doesn’t want to piss off Trump.

The election is Nov. 3. Find out where you can vote. Support local journalism to stay informed.
