The estranged ex-wife of antisemite Kanye West had a three-hour dinner with former President Donald Trump’s daughter in Beverly Hills. Kim Kardashian and Ivanka Trump chopped it up during a Beverly Hills dinner just days after Kardashian’s ex went on an anti-Jewish tirade that led to him being dropped by his agent and his sponsors.
Traveling in the same circles, the two socialites have apparently rekindled an old friendship.
TMZ reported that Kardashian was troubled by her ex-husband’s antisemitic rantings, bringing it up with Ivanka during their high-priced dinner at the Beverly Hills hotel’s Polo Lounge.
An insider at the restaurant tells us at one point, Kim shared how deeply concerned she’s been about Kanye’s recent anti-Semitic statements, and the fact she’s worried about her kids hearing what he’s said — especially given the fact they have Jewish cousins.
Curiously, the media mogul was radio silent during ‘Ye’s bigoted media tirade.
Kim K. did take the time to tweet after the dinner, in a thinly veiled attempt to show she “stands” with the Jewish community.
Hate speech is never OK or excusable. I stand together with the Jewish community and call on the terrible violence and hateful rhetoric towards them to come to an immediate end.

But the public wasn’t buying it.
Kardashian received swift and justified backlash for her vagueness and relative silence during the past two weeks. Not addressing West’s hate-filled comments that have inspired anti-Jewish right-wing groups to make Kanye the poster boy for their disgusting movement.
this is a weak statement and literally the bare minimum you could have done. this is pathetic

Then don't have a 3 hour dinner with Ivanka and let your husband spread hate
If you're against hate, stop hanging out with it

Ivanka Trump, the wife of Jared Kushner, converted to Judaism when they married. The daughter of ex-President Trump has also been quiet about the rising antisemitic rhetoric and sentiments of her father’s MAGA party.
According to sources, Kim K. reportedly sought Ivanka’s “advice” regarding Kanye West’s comments. Considering Trump’s favored daughter stood back in silence while her father spewed vitriol about immigrants, threatened American Jews, and her husband got a $2 billion payday for covering up the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi – I wouldn’t take her at her word.
Birds of a feather – and socialites of privilege – flock together. The canoodling of Kim Kardashian and Ivanka Trump in the wake of the former’s ex-husband’s downward spiral, supports that statement.
