“You voted for Biden and now you’re coming to ask me a favor?” This is how former US President Donald Trump reportedly responded to Kim Kardashian, who asked him to intervene to obtain a pardon. The backstory is revealed in a preview of Jonathan Karl’s book “Tired of Winning,” which will be released tomorrow. Karl, in his third book about Trump, reconstructs how Kardashian, a well-known American television personality and model, first met Trump in the Oval Office in 2018 to discuss a pardon: at that moment the US president told her he would help her in exchange for his interest in convincing football stars to go to the White House. An invitation that no celebrity would have accepted.
So when, after his presidency ended, Kardashian asked him for high-level support for another clemency request, he responded sharply: “Of course not. You voted for Biden and now you’re coming to ask me a favor?” In fact, Kim Kardashan never publicly stated who he voted for in 2020, but after Biden was declared the winner, he posted a tweet of Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris along with three blue hearts. A complicated mix between political power and the world of entertainment.
