Kim Kardashian usually does her absolute best to stay out of politics — especially since two members of her family are avowed Trump supporters — but even the reality superstar couldn't hold her tongue when it came to the president's recent remarks about Puerto Rico.
The social media maven is getting plenty of praise for finally using her voice in the Resistance.
It started when Trump sent tweets instead of aide to the residents of Puerto Rico (who are U.S. citizens, by the way) after the island was ravaged by Hurricane Maria.
Fake News CNN and NBC are going out of their way to disparage our great First Responders as a way to "get Trump." Not fair to FR or effort!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2017
The Fake News Networks are working overtime in Puerto Rico doing their best to take the spirit away from our soldiers and first R's. Shame!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2017
Congresswoman Jennifer Gonzalez-Colon of Puerto Rico has been wonderful to deal with and a great representative of the people. Thank you!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2017
He didn't stop there, either: after the mayor of San Juan, who has been using a raft and a bullhorn to help find her missing constituents, slammed Trump for refusing to help, POTUS hit right back and said the suffering people of PR want "everything done for them."
Apparently, that was the final straw for Kim.
They don’t have power to watch the news!!! Please stop tweeting & golfing while people are dying! Please step up & help! https://t.co/AP8PnapWaO— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) September 30, 2017
For once, Kim caused a tweet storm and it went in her favor. Folks gave the reality star a steady round of applause for speaking up:
Glad to see her using her platform for good.— jojojones (@ShanaJones8) October 1, 2017
