When Kanye West tweeted out his wild, attention-grabbing bid to run for president of the United States, Kim Kardashian publicly indulged her husband, in this case with a subtle, supportive reply in the form of an American flag emoji.
But will Kardashian, 39, continue to indulge him, following his off-the-rails campaign stop in South Carolina Sunday?
During an unscripted hour-long speech, West, 43, bashed Harriet Tubman, among other things. For Kardashian personally, West tried to score political points by revealing that they had considered her getting an abortion when she was pregnant with their first child North West.
“She had the pills in her hand! I almost killed my daughter!” shouted West, referring to the first of their four children, North, 7.

Because some of his ideas differ from yours you have to throw in the mental health card? That’s just not fair.”
At the Exquis Event Center in North Charleston, South Carolina Sunday, West appeared on stage dressed in a bullet-proof vest with 2020 shaved into his head.
In a rambling denunciation of abortion, West shared that in 2013 Kardashian, his then girlfriend, “had the pills in her hand” to have an abortion before he was inspired by God to have the child.
“My girlfriend called me screaming, crying,” West said. “And she said ‘I’m pregnant.’” West tearfully said he struggled with what to do until he received what he interpreted as a sign from God while he was working on his laptop in Paris.
