Kim Kardashian West refused to trash President Trump in a just released interview she did with David Letterman despite David’s urging and astonishment that she would not rip Trump.
Ivanka and Kim have known each other for years but it was Kim’s focus on passing the crime bill to help the people lost and forgotten in the system that brought her repeatedly to the White House.
Imagine trying to get a celebrity who wants to help people hurt by prior administrations to rip the current one who is actually fixing the problem?
Instead, Kim reveals what the hotshots in Hollywood told her about working with Trump, “Trust me, everyone called me and said, ‘Don’t you dare step foot in that White House or your reputation is done.’”
From The Daily Beast:
Clearly uncomfortable with the notion of aiding Trump’s image, Letterman then asks, “But do you feel that what is being done on behalf of sentencing reform now via this current administration in any way allows the balance of democracy back in a corridor of viability?”
It’s a terribly worded, nonsensical question that elicits the only logical response from his guest, who replies, “Well, I have no idea what you just said.”
After the laughter and applause dies down, Letterman tries another tack. “I’m grateful for what you’re doing, but it doesn’t make me feel any better about the current administration,” he says.
But as she has done repeatedly over the past couple of years, Kardashian refuses to say one bad word about the man in the White House, only telling him, “I understand that.”
She will not even tell Letterman who she’s voting for in the presidential election, sitting in silence as he presses her with, “I know who I’m voting for.”
Though the interview was taped before Joe Biden had locked up the Democratic nomination and before Kanye West officially threw his MAGA hat in the ring, the obvious implication is whoever has the best chance of beating Trump.
“Trust me, everyone called me and said, ‘Don’t you dare step foot in that White House or your reputation is done,’” Kardashian says, arguing that it was a small price to pay for saving the lives of people who would otherwise die in prison.
“But see, your good work is overwhelming,” Letterman admits. “It’s a positive force that diminishes what I consider to be unacceptable behavior by the president.”
Instead of agreeing that any such “unacceptable behavior” exists, Kardashian only says she is “extremely grateful” for the administration’s work on criminal justice reform and will “stay focused” on what she can accomplish.
