Is this good news or bad news? You tell me – but as a friend of mine says, a vote is a vote.
I (Michele Hickford) will confess I have never watched an episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and this revelation won’t make me tune in, however…
While I was aware of
Bruce Caitlyn Jenner’s conservative leanings, it appears he she may have had some influence on his her stepchildren.
US Magazine reports Kim Kardashian, once a vocal supporter of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, reportedly said in a new interview that she is thinking about voting for Republican candidate Donald Trump instead.
Excuse me for just a moment while I pick my jaw up off the ground.
According to an excerpt obtained by Evening Standard, while chatting withWonderland magazine for its Autumn 2016 cover story, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 35, revealed that a discussion with her conservative former stepparent Caitlyn Jenner caused her to think twice about casting her ballot for Clinton, 68, this coming November.
“At first I thought, ‘Oh, my God, I’m so Hillary [Clinton],’ but I had a long political call with Caitlyn last night about why she’s voting Trump. I’m on the fence,” Kardashian told the publication, according to Evening Standard.
After the quote gained buzz online, the magazine disavowed theSelfish author’s quotes about Trump, 70. A rep for the publication also told Just Jared, “Wonderland did not print or publish that. The issue is on stands and that’s not in it.”
However, the Huffington Post confirmed the validity of the reality personality’s quotes, and their reporter tweeted that the quotes were sent to Evening Standard “as a promo” for the Wonderland interview.
Kardashian — a self-proclaimed “liberal Republican” — seemingly endorsed Clinton this past January when she posted a selfie with the former secretary of state. “I got my selfie!!!” the mom of two wrote at the time. “I really loved hearing her speak & hearing her goals for our country! #HillaryForPresident.”

Well it just goes to show you there may be hope.
The first revelation is that Kim Kardashian is actually capable of critical thought – although given the fact that she’s parlayed her well-rounded posterior into a media empire, it’s clear there’s a calculating brain in there somewhere.
Now we can take comfort that perhaps some of her 48 million Twitter followers will follow suit. Not holding my breath for her husband Kanye, but stranger things have happened. And besides, he does a very excellent last name!
