Hey, look at the shiny thing over here! President Donald Trump took a break from the political drama by heaping praise on "good wife" Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
At a Republican fundraiser in Columbus, Ohio, NBC reports that Trump ballyhooed the pair. "All of a sudden those numbers started going up, up, up, and we did great," Trump explained. "Now we’re doing great and Kanye West liked me. And that really lifted my numbers."
He went on: "Kanye West has some real power! And he’s got a good wife too in Kim, I’ll tell ya. She really is. She did a great thing, a great thing."
West has praised Trump on several occasions on social media, saying he appreciates his "dragon energy," and Kardashian collaborated with Trump on getting low-level drug offender Alice Johnson pardoned. On Jimmy Kimmel Live, when prodded, she demurred: "I have nothing bad to say about the president."
