Rapper Kanye West has been the center of national headlines in recent days after he publicly came out as an unlikely Trump supporter via Twitter. Given Kanye’s role in the primarily liberal Hollywood scene, fans were stunned by his tweets.
President Trump responded to Kanye’s tweets on Wednesday, thanking him for his support. Photos also showed that Kanye had “Make America Great Again” hat signed by the President himself.
Following the Trump-Kanye controversy, Kanye’s wife of four years — Kim Kardashian West — spoke out regarding the incident. Fans were shocked by her response, in which she proudly defend her husband and the father of her children even though her political views may be different than his.
“Now when [my husband] spoke out about Trump... Most people (including myself) have very different feelings & opinions about this,” Mrs. West admitted. “But this is HIS opinion. I believe in people being able to have their own opinions, even if really different from mine.”
“He never said he agrees with his politics,” she added.
“Kanye will never run in the race of popular opinion and we know that and that’s why I love him and respect him and in a few years when someone else says the same exact thing but they aren’t labeled the way he is and you will all praise them! Kanye is years ahead of his time,” the Kardashian said of her beloved spouse.
