It is unusual, but not unheard of, that in some marriages one spouse is Democrat and the other Republican. It is even more unusual that one is a member of his very own “Birthday Party” in a bid for the 2020 presidency. In some cases, love transcends political discrepancies – and in some others…it can lead to big issues.
This happens in celebrity couples too – look no farther than Kim and Kanye. The couple has been garnering a lot of attention in the trades lately for many reasons; Kim’s out of touch birthday at a private island in the middle of a pandemic, Kanye’s weird AF birthday present to her wife – a hologram of her dead father. Yes, you heard that right. And that’s not even the most outrageous part. The most outrageous part is that the hologram praises her for marrying Kanye, “the most, most, most, most, most genius man in the whole world, Kanye West.” He says “most” five times in case she didn’t hear it well enough the first four times. And lastly, and probably most interestingly, their divided political views.
When your hubby is running for President of the free world, one would assume his spouse would be a little more vocal about her support for his candidacy, right? Well, if your hubby is Kanye West, it’s probably wise not to speak out – and Kim has been pretty silent about it. She tweeted an American flag emoji when he announced his candidacy, but has said little else about it in public and she reportedly urged him in private not to run and instead focus on his well-documented mental health struggles. So, if she didn’t vote for her husband, who did Kim vote for?
Some fans pointed out that Kardashian has been liking tweets about Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, as a clue to who she cast her vote for. But after fans pointed out that Kardashian was wearing a red dress in a photograph, which could be a sign that she voted for Trump, she deleted the picture and reuploaded a black-and-white selfie.
In any case, I think it’s clear that Kanye wasn’t at the top of her list…
