Kim Kardashian in staying guarded about who’s getting her vote this Election Day.
In the first episode of the new, third season of his Netflix series, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, David Letterman sat down with Kardashian to discuss everything from her harrowing 2016 Paris robbery to her work in criminal justice reform. But it was her time spent in the Oval Office with President Donald Trump and for whom she’ll vote next month that Letterman was eager to push on.
“I know who I’m voting for,” Kardashian told Letterman, according to the Daily Beast.
The interview was completed several months ago, before Joe Biden secured the Democratic nomination and before Kardashian’s husband, Kanye West, announced his ambitions to take over the White House.
Despite her unwillingness to tell Letterman her political pick, Kardashian was willing to discuss her work with Trump to free Alice Johnson, whose life sentence Kardashian worked to commute, culminating in a photo of herself with the POTUS in the Oval Office.
“Trust me, everyone called me and said, ‘Don’t you dare step foot in that White House or your reputation is done.’ And I said, ‘I have to step foot in there or these people’s lives don’t have a chance,’” Kardashian told Letterman, saying that it was worth going against the advice of others because she was able to fulfill her goal of helping Johnson. “Hopefully, for the next multiple administrations, I’ll be working with the White House, helping them with clemencies.”
