Kourtney Kardashian has urged fans to vote for Kanye West, though his wife Kim has failed to promote her husband’s presidential campaign.
Kourtney posted a picture of herself posing in a ‘VOTE KANYE’ hat on her Instagram story, with a link to his ‘Kanye 2020’ website.
The post comes after speculation that Kim strongly disagrees with her husband’s presidential bid, refusing to lend her support.
Earlier this week, the rapper made a dig at his wife by saying “weak controlling people” tried to stop him from running for president.
Kim previously expressed her disapproval of him running for president this year.
The 39-year-old KUWTK star “lost her s**t” when her husband tearfully screamed on stage they almost aborted their daughter North West, 7, during an explosive rant at his first presidential campaign.
An insider told UK news outlet The Sun: “Kim wants Kanye to drop out of this race now and she told him if he does not she may drop him!
“Her and her sisters were horrified, first of all, to see Kanye interacting indoors with people without a mask on and that alone was enough to make her freak,” they said of the lack of virus guidelines followed at the event.
The source continued: “Kris told Kanye that he must quarantine for two weeks now before he can see her or the kids.
“He was not social distancing and he was not wearing a mask. There were clearly a lot of people around as well.”
However, the coronavirus rule breaking was “just the tip of the iceberg,” according to the insider and Kim’s anger escalated when the rapper brought up their firstborn.
They explained: “She lost her s**t when she heard him discuss their decision to not get an abortion with North.
“Kanye told her, as well as Kris, that the only reason he said that was because he knew that he needed something big to get the attention on his campaign.”
But on Wednesday, Kim encouraged fans to vote – without mentioning her husband.
She simply wrote: “Please VOTE! You have the power to change your future!”
Her call to action came just days after her husband Kanye shared his one-minute and 22-second presidential campaign video on Twitter – which was mocked as “unbelievably sad”.
The footage, which has since received more than one and a half million views, shows Ye speaking in front of a black-and-white American flag and talking about “our nation‘s commitment to faith.”
With the exception of Kourtney’s post, Kim and her famous family members have yet to endorse Kanye, nearly three months after he launched his campaign in July during a rambling South Carolina rally.
In October he was seen in London with eldest daughter North, who wore a “vote Kanye” tee.
He has since failed to get himself on the ballot in many states and on Wednesday was left embarrassed when he shared a video thinking he had been ranked third place in Kentucky.
However, it was only a test poll.
The rapper tweeted a video of himself smiling and whooping with the caption “This is how I felt when I saw that Kentucky poll result,” just to later find out the results were incorrect.
Kentucky outlet Lex18 News confirmed that the link the rapper was referring to on their website was actually showing test election results from the state.
“The results shown were not valid. They were simply part of a test,” the network tweeted.
“We regret the discovery of the cached web link and have removed the data from that page. We apologise for any confusion.”
