You don't even have to like Trump or support him. All you have to do to tick off anyone on the left is just pray for America's success and the resolution of our country's issues. If you do that, you're ostracized from the liberal elites in Hollywood. There are a few celebrities who simply don't care if they're given the boot: Kevin Sorbo, James Woods, Scott Baio, Kanye West, John Voigt, Willie Robertson to name a few.
Kanye West was a surprising one. It sent the world and Twitterverse into a tailspin when Kanye West stepped out of a studio wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat. And now it seems some of his gumption and courage has rubbed off on his wife, Kim Kardashian.
Via the Hollywood Reporter, we learn that Kim Kardashian held a pop-up store in Los Angeles for her KKW Beauty line. She reminisced about her roots, how it was the mall she hung out at during her teens, and where she got her ears pierced.
Among the topics of conversation were her recent encounter and successful meeting with President Donald Trump. Many people criticized her for this meeting, while I and a lot of other people praised her for taking a road many celebrities avoid: not just talking about issues and slamming the President, but actually meeting with him to enact change and solutions.
So in light of her constructive behavior in solving an issues, her comments to the Hollywood Reporter don't surprise me at all.
She told HR:
"I try to see all sides, especially after this experience [referring to the controversy over her visit to the White House]. There’s obviously a lot that we don’t agree with, but I want him [President Trump] to win. I want him to succeed, because it’s our country. It’s so crazy that everyone doesn’t want that."
Dang, Kim. I used to think you were yet another thoughtless, Hollywood snob and I've been increasingly forced to change my opinion.
Of course, Kim will receive backlash for this as well. It's astonishing that so many people are willing to see the American ship sink simply because Trump is behind the wheel. But the tide is rising and our country is heading in a more prosperous, safer direction.
Bravo to the select few celebrities who are bold enough to admit that.
