From Paris Hilton's closet, to Keeping Up With the Kardashians, to the Oval Office. Wait, what?
Daymond John just made one heck of a prediction. While speaking to Us Weekly, the Shark Tank investor said he believes Kim Kardashian will be president someday. Unbelievable? Maybe. Far-fetched? Maybe not. John cites the many reasons this might be a more realistic route for the reality star than we think, starting with her mega "influence."
The FUBU founder explained:
“She built an influence with people over the course of many, many years. She negotiated and had big deals. She’s even negotiated for a woman to get released out of jail, where she’s starting now to go and take up some type of legal training and education.”
“Everybody loves somebody they’re familiar with. By this time in eight, 10 years, she’s probably going to be able to reach half a billion people with her cell phone. She already has a mixed marriage, she has the LGBT [representation] in her family, she has female empowerment. It’s going to be pretty hard to beat her.”
So what do you think? Kimmy 2030? We've already learned not to underestimate the reality star, turned entrepreneur, turned future lawyer. Where she stops, nobody really knows. And celebrities becoming presidents is already a thing—for better or for worse.
