West took the stage at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards to accept the Video Vanguard Award and gave a rambling speech, at the end of which, he announced his plans to make a White House run in 2020. Kardashian said this aspiration was "news to me."

"That wasn’t a discussion in our household," the 34-year-old reality star told Ellen, who questioned West’s sincerity.

"No, he’s serious," she insisted. "If he puts his mind to something, he’ll do his best."

Kardashian, who is expecting her second child with West, maintained that she didn’t know if that was something the rapper and fashion designer had pre-planned or if it was spur of the moment, but told the talk show host she’s excited to see how his candidacy plays out.

"It’s been fascinating just hearing all of the conversations that have gone on since that announcement," she said, very diplomatically. "That was a fun night and I’m looking forward to what’s to come."
