In case you completely missed it in the craziness that is this week, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are currently on a trip to Uganda with their daughter North, during which they had a meeting with the President, Yoweri Museveni. And apparently President Museveni had literally no idea what Kim does for a living. TBH, I think some Americans probably feel the same way, President Museveni!
“They met with the President of Uganda and the president asked Kim why she had to leave early, she replied that she had to go back to work,” a source told People.
“The president then asked what was her job and Kim, very politely, said that she had a TV show with sisters and family and they were all waiting for her return.”
LOLOLOL. My question is…if he had no idea what she did for a living, what was even the premise or purpose of this meeting?! Was he just like “These people seem cool, let’s chat?” Or did he know that Kanye is a rapper but had no idea that Kim is equally, if not more, famous? Or was he trying to throw HELLA shade? IDK!
The best part is that afterwards President Museveni tweeted about the visit and simply called the couple “entertainment stars.”
I welcome American entertainment stars Kanye West and @KimKardashian to Uganda. I held fruitful discussions with the duo on how to promote Uganda's tourism and the arts. I thank Kanye for the gift of white sneakers. Enjoy your time in Uganda. It is the true Pearl of Africa. pic.twitter.com/BO0iD0sFCP

Oh yeah, and Kanye gifted the Ugandan president with a pair of white Yeezys that he and Kim had signed. If only we were all so lucky as to own a pair of white sneakers with the autographs of these “entertainment stars,” amirite?
