We were all surprised when Kanye West announced at the VMAs that he was planning to run for president, but probably none so surprised as Kim Kardashian, who says she was caught off guard by her husband’s newfound political aspirations – and we would think she would have known about them before because hello, she’s married to the guy.
“That was news to me. It was not a discussion in our household,” she said on the Ellen show. Though she had no idea her husband was going to up and try to run for office, like a good wife she is backing his new goals. And why wouldn’t she? Becoming the FLOTUS would make Kim Kardashian even more famous than she already is, and we know the Kardashian-Jenner machine is a slave to any prospect of increased overexposure.
But for now, Kanye is preparing for his 2020 bid and Kim is over here thinking about the tough issues the most powerful (and creative!) man in the world must attend to in his position… like redecorating the White House. “I was thinking about how much fun it would be to be in the White House. I was joking with him: ‘You will have to make it to a second term’ because he loves redecorating, and I was like, ‘you are going to have to redo the whole White House, and we aren’t going to be able to enjoy it, so we are just going to have to go with the flow.'”
How nice it would be if the president’s main worry was what color the Oval Office was painted. Watch the video below.
