Kanye West Is Really Serious About Running For President, Says Kim Kardashian
Not that we thought he was joking or anything, but it turns out, Kanye West really is serious about running for President in 2020.
West announced his presidential candidacy during the MTV VMAs last month and now his wife, Kim Kardashian, is speaking out about her husband’s run. During an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, set to air on Wednesday, the reality star explained that she was not aware that Yeezy would be making such a big announcement.
“That was news to me,” she said. “I believe he is serious and I know that if he puts his mind to something he’ll do his best. And he will. It’s been fascinating just hearing all of the conversations that have gone on since that announcement. I don’t know if that was planned and I just didn’t know about it or if he came up with that idea right then and there…That was a fun night and I’m looking forward to what’s to come.”
And as a possible first lady, Kardashian says this is something you definitely mention to your wife. “That’s a big thing to not talk to your wife about, but I think that would be so much fun to be in the White House,” the mother to 2-year-old North West explained. “I was joking with him. I was like, ‘You’re going to have to make it to a second term,’ because he loves redecorating. I was like, ‘You’re going to want to redo the whole White House and we’re not going to be able to enjoy it. So we’re going to have to just go with the flow.'”
And speaking of going with the flow, the couple isn’t rushing the baby name for their second bundle of joy. The pregnant star, who is expecting a baby boy, shared with Ellen that “I do like the name Easton. Easton West. I don’t think my husband likes that name, but I do like it. I don’t we’ll go another direction. It’s definitely not South. Every time someone says ‘South’ I just want to roll my eyes. It’s not a good direction.”
