This is the President of the United States! He isn't easily persuaded like, say, a top magazine editor!
In fact, a source is saying Kimmy offered up her support and help to President Obama during his 2012 campaign!
"Wanted to be a 'surrogate' for the campaign, but they wanted nothing to do with her. She was not the young, cool, image they wanted to portray at all. Even though she kept asking, the campaign would never let her do anything in an official capacity.
Kim is political poison. Having her involved in a political event or with a candidate is the last thing people who are serious about getting elected want."
Political poison? Yikes!
While Obama's campaign people wanted nothing to do with Kimmy, they opted to go with Katy Perry during his presidential run instead. The insider continued to say:
"Katy is on a different level than Kim. Everybody loves Katy. Kim is so controversial and it’s just too risky for any candidate to have her involved."
