Paris Hilton is rich, white, and probably thinks the Paris Agreement refers to her and Rick Salomon's decision to pretend her sex tape was leaked accidentally.
So it's no big surprise that she voted for Donald Trump.
Also not surprising? She did so for a dumb reason.
Hilton spent the past year refusing to comment on the election or reveal who she planned to vote for, but like many other celebs, she leapt at the opportunity to prove she was on the "winning" side of history shortly after Trump was elected.
During an interview for an Australian morning show (Paris has to get her publicity where she can these days.) the socialite-turned-nobody revealed that she cast her ballot for her fellow hotel namesake:
“I’ve known him since I was a little girl, so, yes,” she said, when asked if she had voted for Trump.
Okay, regardless of your political leanings, or your feelings on Trump or Paris (Someone out there must be staunchly pro-Paris Hilton, right?), can we all agree that voting for someone because you've known them for a long time is a dumb reason.
It's not like Paris offered any further explanation along the lines of:
"I've know him since I was a little girl, and I know he's a man of integrity."
"I've known him since I was a little girl, and he never grabbed my p-ssy!"
Just a flat out, "Yeah, I voted for the guy I've met before. What is this policy you speak of?"
Of course, Paris is a known racist, so she might be one of those Trump supporters who doesn't want to own the real reason she voted for him.
We're certainly not claiming that all Donald Trump supporters are rich, white or racist, but when a rich, white racist reveals that they voted for Donald Trump, you're not exactly blown away.
By contrast, when we found out that Kanye West voted for Trump, it came as somewhat of a surprise, as while Trump and Kanye will one day merge into a giant ego monster named Trumpye, West is also associated with several groups (people of color, Kardashians) who aren't exactly huge on the Donald.
The important thing is that two rich dumbasses were able to set aside their differing views on Kim Kardashian and come together in support of Donald Trump, and isn't that what America is all about?
Sadly, yes. It kind of is.
