Kanye West is running for president, even though he is accused of being a tool for President Donald Trump with GOP operatives on his campaign. Now, his sister-in-law Kourtney Kardashian appears to have endorsed him.
In her Instagram stories, broadcast to over 10 million followers, she wore a hat that read “Vote Kanye” with a link to a site where the cap is being sold for $40.
West’s running mate is 57-year-old Michelle Tidball. According to Forbes, she lives in Wyoming, describes herself as a “biblical life coach” and in a bible teleconference said that she doesn’t “watch news.”
West, who admittedly has never voted, announced his run for president via Twitter on July 4. In 2016, the rapper and designer said if he did vote in that election, he would have “voted on Trump.” He later paid Trump a visit at Trump Tower in New York City during the transition, and has voiced his support for the impeached Republican president on multiple occasions.

*deep sigh*@kourtneykardash You seriously think people should vote for Kanye? You think he can run this country, handle foreign issues, COVID, climate change, possible war, etc? This is incredibly irresponsible and quite frankly stupid. You are a clown. pic.twitter.com/yPOAbb1zju— LoveAndyC (@LoveAndyC) October 16, 2020
Your family is messing with the American people’s lives!! @kanyewest is just going to take votes away from Biden. We need change and by Kanye putting his name on the ballot is going to prevent that change. I didn’t think I would ever think there was a more unfit candidate!— Leigh J Merrill (@leighjmerrill6) October 16, 2020
