Did Kim Kardashian Know About Kanye West's Presidential Ambitions?

Pin It
We were all a little shocked when Kanye West declared during the 2015 VMAs that he was running for President in 2020. Turns out, we were in good company, because Kim Kardashian was just as surprised as we were!

During her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, Ellen asked if Kim knew about Kanye's Presidential plan. "Um...I did not! That was news to me," the 34-year-old confessed. Ellen asked if he'd ever maybe mentioned it in passing. Like, you know, if KimYe was sitting at dinner talking about their day and 'Ye just maybe casually dropped the fact that he was going to run for President of the United States. Nope! "That was never even a conversation in our household," Kim laughs.

But, don't get it twisted, Yeezus is not kidding about running for the esteemed office.


"He is serious," she says, "and if he puts his mind to something, he'll do his best and...I think it would be so much fun to be in the White House."

She jokes that she did tell him that if he IS going to run, he needs to make sure he gets elected to a second term, so he'll have time to redo the White House and then they'll have time to enjoy the upgraded interior.


Do your thing, Ye! But next time you make a decision like that, maybe at least just loop your wife in BEFORE you make the announcement.
