It appears the tug of war for the votes between the celebrity Kardashian / Jenner family has been turned up. Previously Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton had been endorsed by the family’s most famous member, however now they may be changing their tune in favor of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Yes, Kim Kardashian is having her doubts about supporting Hillary Clinton. This is in contrast to Kardashian’s previous statements of support for Clinton in an interview with GQ. They wrote:
In the past, Kim has identified as a “liberal Republican,” fiscally conservative but socially progressive. She told me she now votes Democrat (“As I’ve grown up, I decided what I think is best for me instead of what my parents would have voted for”) and plans to vote for Hillary Clinton.
However, she is now changing her tune according to The Huffington Post. Kardashian said, “At first I thought, ‘Oh my God, I’m so Hillary, but I had a long political call with Caitlyn last night about why she’s voting Trump. I’m on the fence.”
One wonders what Caitlyn Jenner could have said to Kim K to sway her opinions, however Jenner is one of Trump’s most high-profile supporters. As Kardashian is one of the most recognizable people on the planet her endorsement of a particular candidate has the possibility of having actual consequences. Just as celebrities are used to sell products, they can just as easily sway the minds of voters to vote for one candidate or another. Neither the Clinton nor Trump campaigns have released a statement about the Kardashian endorsement.
