While we wait on pins at needles to see who the next president will be, let's distract ourselves with some good old-fashioned, all-American Kardashian family drama, shall we?
On November 3, Kim Kardashian, like many of her sisters, took a non-partisan approach to encourage her followers to vote via a voting sticker selfie. Though she made no mention of candidates in the caption, fans began to question who Kim actually voted for herself.

The color red is generally associated with the republican party, notably present in President Trump's crimson MAGA hats. Bella Hadid even purposefully wore blue to cast her ballot, in demonstration of her support for Vice President Joe Biden. Because of this, some commenters speculated whether Kim's outfit was a subtle nod to Trump, due to the red shirt she was wearing in the original photo.

Seemingly to combat these rumors, Kim deleted and re-posted a new version of the original picture on both Twitter and Instagram – this time, in black and white.

On Twitter, Kim seemed to double down, reportedly liking multiple tweets in support of Joe Biden and retweeting Kamala Harris, though these cannot currently be seen on her page.

Kim has worked directly with Donald Trump through her prison reform efforts, however she has made clear that she does not support Trump's ideologies. In an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians Kim says that she has "different beliefs" than Trump and even endorsed Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election.

Of course, Kim has also shown some support for her husband Kanye West's half-baked presidential run, so it's unclear who she chose to cast her vote for this time around. Kanye has stated that he voted for himself in the 2020 election.
