Kim Kardashian Throws Shade At Kanye And Drops Alarming OJ Joke During SNL Monologue

And she is definitely not running for president.

Kim Kardashian turned out in a hot-pink bodysuit to deliver a sly, mostly funny monologue as she made her hosting debut on Saturday Night Live this weekend.

The reality star heaped praise and dished dirt on her latest divorced husband, referred to her sex tape, and calmly passed off a jaw-dropping OJ Simpson “joke.”

She also took a dig at SNL, saying her appearance before 10 million or so viewers was a “chill, intimate night” for her because she’s used to being fawned over by some 360 million fans.

Kim segued into OJ Simpson as she plugged her “real passion — getting wrongly accused people out of jail. I think I’m following in my father’s footsteps,” she added.

Her late father, attorney Robert Kardashian, helped acquit OJ Simpson of murder charges in the stabbing deaths of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. 

It’s because of her dad that she “met my first Black person,” Kim noted. “Wanna take a stab in the dark at who it was?” she asked a startled audience. “OJ does leave a mark — or several, or none at all; I still don’t know”.

As for Kanye West, he’s the “best rapper of all times... the richest Black man in America, a talented, legit genius who gave me four incredible kids,” she said. (The former couple were spotted together in Manhattan before the programme went live)

“When I divorced him, you know it came down to one thing: His personality,” she zinged.

“I’m surprised to see me here, too,” Kim told the audience as she first stepped on stage. “I haven’t had a movie premiere in a really long time,” she quipped, referring to her leaked sex tape. “Actually I only had that one movie come out, and no one told me it was even premiering. It must have slipped my mum’s mind.”

She emphasised: “I’m a Kim, not a Karen,” but given all the “K” names in the family, that might have been a possibility. Somehow her mum “just knew” Karen wouldn’t be a good pick. “I don’t know how she saw that coming — and not Caitlyn”, she said.

“I’d love America to come together, which is why I’m here to announce that I’m running … I’m just kidding!” she added. “I’m not running for president. We can’t have three failed politicians in one family,” she said, referring to Kanye West’s doomed bid for the presidency, and Caitlyn Jenner’s failed race for California governor.
