Kim Kardashian Says She Had to 'Educate' Kanye West After His Meeting with President Trump

Kim Kardashian arrives alongside CNN’s Van Jones for the 2018 Criminal Justice Reform Summit hosted by Variety and Rolling Stone on Wednesday (November 14) at the 1 Hotel in West Hollywood, Calif.

During her panel discussion with host Van, the 38-year-old reality star opened up about her husband Kanye West‘s highly-talked about visit with President Trump at the White House last month.

“I feel like he’s very misunderstood and the worst communicator,” Kim said. “But, when we talk about it, we have very similar politics. He’s very not political, actually, he just happens to like Donald Trump’s personality, but doesn’t know about the politics. So, I’ve educated him recently. I think it gets really misconstrued. He will always say he was friendly with him before, and he’s the same person and friendly with him now. I could also co-exist with someone and still have different political views.”

Shortly after his meeting with Trump, Kanye took to Twitter to reveal that he is “distancing” himself from politics.

“After he went to the White House or has been outspoken, I could have easily been on social media and corrected him,” Kim continued. “But I believe people have their own journeys. I know his heart, so I know that one day what he’s been trying to say will come out. It’s taken a little long so I’m jumping in and helping out, but I know his heart so I never really stress too much.”

Also stepping out for the event was Get Out star Allison Williams.

    Kim needs to get educated too and stop saying “like” and “you know” all of the time!

    “He just happens to like Donald Trump’s personality.” Are you f***ing kidding me?! Is that supposed to be some excuse. Trump’s horrible personality goes hand in hand with his horrible administration and policies. And also, when did Van Jones become BFFs with KK?

    This! I can’t stand it when people do that, to me it comes across as the exact opposite of being educated. Also, Kim and Kayne are two of the most vapid, ridiculous individuals out there and neither of them should be educating the other or anyone else, on anything.

    I guess she’s better than me. I couldn’t coexist with neo nazis and white supremacists and call it “differing political views” …… ::rollseyes::

    Why is the media giving Kim a platform to spew her nonsense? Kim will do and say anything for attention. She doesn’t care about prison reform, all she cares about is how to keep her name in the headlines. It’s disappointing that the media keeps falling for her con and celebrating her as a hero, giving her awards and covers that she doesn’t deserve. This is how we got Trump as president.

    How exactly did Kim educate Kanye? How can Kim educate Kanye when she doesn’t know anything? She didn’t correct Kanye because she doesn’t want to ruin any chances of getting photo-ops in the White House.
