Kim Kardashian recently revealed two issues that "outweigh everything else" for her in this election: protecting abortion and gun control.
On Saturday, the 35-year-old reality TV star (married to singer Kanye West) publicized her support of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in a tweet to her 48 million followers.
In a post on her website, Kardashian detailed why “I’m with her.” Kardashian said she felt the need to clarify her political position after commenting that she was “on the fence” about her vote.
To pick her candidate, Kardashian followed Caitlyn Jenner’s advice to “do my research before making my decision and then vote for the candidate whose policies aligned with the things that matter most to me.”
Kardashian named two issues that influenced her future vote: guns and abortion.
“I thought about the things that are so important to me that they outweigh everything else,” she said, “such as gun control and protecting women's rights to safe and legal abortion.”
(Except that there's no such thing as a "safe" abortion – one person always dies. And the media refuse to report on the dangers it poses towards women.)
She was certain in her support of Clinton:
I found that without a doubt, I stand with Hillary. I'm with her. I believe Hillary will best represent our country and is the most qualified for the job. This year, I'm not just voting for myself, but also for my children, and I took that into careful consideration when I made my decision.
“I believe that both candidates have the intention of making the country a safer and stronger place for every American,” she added, “they just have different ideas about how we get there.”
Kardashian ended with a note to God.
“God bless America for allowing us to even make these decisions – there are so many in this world who are not so privileged,” she wrote.
Despite her support for gun control, Kardashian is perfectly fine with using them herself:
And from entertainment site PerezHilton:
This isn't the first time Kardashian has spoken out about gun control – an issue on which critics call her hypcritical.
