Kim Kardashian is the daughter of Robert Kardashian, an absolutely brilliant defense lawyer. She also has a reality TV show and is a social media influencer. She is famous for becoming famous because of a sex tape. I watched the first 10 minutes of the reality TV show featuring her and her family and had to turn it off due to the absurd level of banality.
So why will she be governor of California? First, she is in the process of getting her law license in California, which is the only state that you can get a law license through apprenticeship, meaning you do not have to go to law school. My hunch is that Ms. Kardashian will use this ‘credential’ to start some kind of social campaign for some issue that is truly important. Unfortunately, voters will probably ignore the fact that this person has no business being a governor of a state. Secondly, people love social media and the stars of social media. Personally, I do not understand this, but what do I know.
Our current social media President has proven that the only requirement to get elected is being popular enough with no consideration for ability. Thus enters Ms. Kardashian. I don’t know her and never will. She is likely a nice person who cares about…something. However, one has to question the ability for someone to have actual responsibility who was made famous by having a sex-tape leaked on the Internet.
