On October 26th’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Kardashian momager Kris Jenner shared her thoughts on son-in-law Kanye West’s support of Donald Trump. West has been vocal about his adoration of Trump, despite having not voted for him during the 2016 election. The rapper has visited the White House, posted several controversial pro-Trump tweets, and recently expressed his political views in an unplanned monologue on September 29th’s episode of Saturday Night Live.
Jenner noted that she can’t control the actions of others—all she can do is encourage and help West become “the best version of himself.”
DeGeneres then asked Jenner about her thoughts on West’s October 11th televised visit with Trump in the Oval Office. West memorably gifted Trump a Superman cape, likened the president to a father figure, and accused black people of being “caught up” in racism. President Trump then endorsed West as a presidential candidate for 2020.
Jenner says that West ultimately has his own thoughts and opinions, and although she and her daughters may not always agree with them, they’re doing their best to support him as a member of the family. DeGeneres’ interview with Jenner airs today, October 26th.
