Kim Kardashian: Kanye is ‘serious’ about 2020 bid

Kim Kardashian contends husband Kanye West is “serious” about a 2020 presidential bid, and she’s onboard, saying, “I think it would be so much fun to be in the White House.”

The “Keeping up With the Kardashians” reality television star, who tied the knot with the “Yeezus” rapper and fashion designer last year, tells “Ellen” host Ellen DeGeneres she was taken by surprise by West’s announcement last month at MTV’s Video Music Awards.

{mosads}“I did not [know about it],” Kardashian tells DeGeneres in an episode airing Wednesday. “That was news to me.”

Kardashian, who is currently pregnant with the couple’s second child, added, “That wasn’t a discussion in our household.”

But the 34-year-old tabloid and social media fixture maintains West, 38, isn’t joking about his political aspirations.

“I believe he is serious,” said Kardashian. “And I know, you know, that if he puts his mind to something, he’ll do his best.”

Kardashian quipped that if her husband becomes President West, she’s already committing him to running for reelection: “Well 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,’” Kardashian said.

“So we’re going to just have to go with the flow.”
