It's been a tough time to be a Kanye West fan this year, but these past few days have been particularly brutal. The 41-year-old rapper appeared on the premiere of Saturday Night Live (Sept. 29) as the musical guest, and unsurprisingly brought his political views with him.
At the end of the show, Kanye told the crowd while wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat, "It's so many times that I talk... a white person about this, and they say, 'How could you like Trump? He's racist.' Well if I was concerned about racism, I would have moved out of America a long time ago."
The day following SNL, Kanye took things even further and tweeted out that we should "abolish the 13th Amendment." Expectedly, the rapper has been receiving countless amounts of backlash, with many criticizing him for his controversial and honestly ridiculous beliefs.
Fans of Kim Kardashian have been wondering how she feels about her husband's extreme declarations and the backlash he's been receiving, but it seems everything is just fine with their relationship.
During SNL, Kim was backstage with their five-year-old daughter North, and reportedly wasn't phased by Kanye's pro-Trump speech, or even the booing he faced. “She didn’t seem like anything, she was just watching,” a source shared. “Trump’s been good to them so it seems they do really love him, even Kim." Hm...

To make her stance even more clear, Kim has seemingly responded to all the criticism, as she took to Instagram to share a photo of the two on Oct. 1. The caption reads, "We Got Love," along with two heart emojis.
Kanye told TMZ on Oct. 1 that he didn't mean to say "abolish" the 13th Amendment, but rather, he wants to "amend" it. “What I want to say is ‘abolish’ was the wrong language. I misspoke by saying abolish. ‘Amend’ is the right language,” the rapper explained. “What’s awesome, I don’t say dope because there’s power in words. So lovely, what’s beautiful about our Constitution is we can amend it, right?”
No matter what Kanye says, it's obvious Kim will stay by his side.
