July 23, 2020 | 11:56am

Kourtney Kardashian took her sister Kim’s kids on a mini getaway as their father, Kanye West, is in the throes of a bipolar episode.

The Poosh founder posted photos with North, 7, and Saint, 4, while visiting Balboa Island in Newport Beach, Calif., on Wednesday.

“Haven’t been back since I was a little girl and it hasn’t changed 😊✨,” 41-year-old Kourtney captioned the post.

Her own children, 5-year-old Reign and 8-year-old Penelope, were also along for the trip.

The family visited several local spots including a candy store and a frozen banana spot.

Their outing comes amid West’s episode, in which where he launched a tweetstorm against his wife, Kim Kardashian, 39, and held a campaign event where he slammed Harriet Tubman and spoke about wanting to abort daughter North.

Kim has since come out in support of her husband, attributing his rants to his struggle with bipolar disorder.

Kim Kardashian West breaks silence on Kanye West’s mental health, asks for “compassion and empathy” – CBS News

Kim Kardashian West is addressing her husband Kanye West’s struggle with bipolar disorder in a heartfelt message on Instagram. The 43-year-old rapper’s mental health has come under increased scrutiny in recent days after he launched a potential bid for president and unleashed a series of bizarre statements and tweets. 

On Sunday, West hosted a campaign rally in South Carolina, which included controversial rants about Harriet Tubman and abortion. West did not end up making the filing deadline to appear on the South Carolina ballot. 

On Monday, he tweeted and deleted a series of late-night tweets, which took aim at both Kardashian West and her mother, Kris Jenner. 

In several Instagram Story posts Wednesday morning, Kardashian West opened up about how her husband’s mental health has affected him and their family. 

“Anyone who has [bipolar disorder] or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how complicated and painful it is to understand,”  she wrote. “I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health.”

She said she decided to open up in order to destigmatize the condition and clear up some of the misconceptions about mental illness. 

“People who are unaware or far from removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try,” she wrote.

She said that West will always be subject to criticism, but asked for “compassion and empathy” as her family grapples with his disorder. She also voiced her support for her husband. 

“He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder,” Kardashian West wrote. “Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions.”

Kardashian West said his disorder does not “diminish or invalidate his dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some.”

“That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true,” she added. She concluded with a passionate plea to destigmatize talking about mental health and give “grace” to people struggling.

Kanye West spoke about his experience with bipolar disorder in an interview with David Letterman in May 2019.

“It is a health issue. This — it’s like a sprained brain, like having a sprained ankle. And if someone has a sprained ankle, you’re not going to push on him more. With us, once our brain gets to a point of spraining, people do everything to make it worse,” West said in the interview, adding that he was under a doctor’s care.

West has not specified which type of bipolar disorder he has been diagnosed with. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, Bipolar I Disorder is characterized by manic episodes and symptoms, as well as depressive episodes. Bipolar II Disorder is defined by depressive and hypomanic episodes, but not “full-blown” manic episodes.

Another type, known as Cyclothymic Disorder, is characterized by depressive and hypomanic symptoms that last several years, but not shorter episodes. An individual may also be diagnosed with unspecified bipolar disorder if their symptoms do not match the other three types. 

For more information about mental health care resources and support, The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) HelpLine can be reached Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.–6 p.m. ET, at 1-800-950-NAMI (6264) or email info@nami.org.

Elon Musk, Kim Kardashian Endorse Kanye West Running For President – Forbes

TOPLINE

After years of hints, Kanye West formally announced he is running for president this year in a challenge to Trump, who he once supported, and Democratic rival Joe Biden, winning support from his friend and Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

KEY FACTS

Rounding off his Fourth of July, West tweeted on Saturday night: “We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States! #2020VISION.”

Musk tweeted in response: “You have my full support!”

Wife Kim Kardashian also publicly pledged her support, retweeting West’s statement and adding a U.S. flag emoji.

West’s announcement follows years of hints that he would run for office this year which he later postponed to 2024, after publicly declaring at a Fast Company event in 2019: “When I run for president in 2024…We would create so many jobs! I’m not going to run, I’m going to walk.”

But the rapper, who recently inked a 10-year deal with Gap through his Yeezy brand, is reportedly yet to file any paperwork to get on state election ballots, while he has missed the deadline for states including Texas, New York, and Indiana.

It is not known how serious West’s intentions are this time around, however, he still has time to file as an independent candidate across most states, according to Ballotpedia.

West’s declaration was met with skepticism on social media, while some commentators pointed out that it could work out in Trump’s favour.

Key background

West’s declaration suggests the rapper is looking to cement political ambitions he has expressed throughout Trump’s presidency. West previously forged alliances with Trump, and was pictured in the Oval Office in 2018 wearing a signature Trump ‘Make America Great Again’ cap. He once called the president his “brother” and previously hit back at criticism towards his support for Trump, likening the backlash to racial discrimination. Although he says he didn’t vote in 2016, West later said he “would have voted for Trump”, and earlier this year doubled down, suggesting he would vote for him in November. But that could very well change given Saturday’s announcement.

In the too-cute family photo, each of the toddlers is seen sporting a medal around their neck, which Rob seemingly awarded them for a cousins’ competition. “YOU get a medal! YOU get a medal! YOU get a medal! YOU get a medal! 😭💙💙🥇🥇🥇🥇,” the proud dad captioned the sweet photo, referencing Oprah Winfrey’s tagline about giveaways.

Dream and Chicago kept hilarious straight faces for the picture, while True and Saint showed off their beaming smiles.

Rob’s daughter — whom he shares with ex Blac Chyna — appeared to have earned an extra medal, which she can be seen holding off to the side in a small plastic bag.

The adorable family moment comes one week after the Kardashian-Jenner family gathered in honor of Khloé Kardashian’s 36th birthday, throwing her a party complete with inflatables, sweet treats and colorful decorations.

“Sweet 16 😁 woo,” he wrote on Instagram, sharing a sweet photo of himself with an arm around Kourtney, 41, as he wore a blue hat and a black hoodie. Momager Kris Jenner also posted the same photo on her own account, writing, “These two cuties 😍.”

The matriarch also documented the festivities by capturing a joyful snapshot of her children clowning around, with Kourtney and Kim not pictured.

“4 out of 6 #happybirthdaykhloe,” Jenner captioned the shot, which showed Rob laughing with Khloé in front of a pink-themed dessert table, as Kendall, 24, danced nearby and Kylie, 22, snacked on a treat.

On Twitter, Khloé thanked everyone for sending positive birthday wishes and explained that the celebration was limited to just family amid the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“I had the most magnificent birthday!!! It was family only. We just aren’t comfortable being around too many people but the decor was OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!!!” wrote Khloé. “I wanted to thank you ALL for sending me so many beautiful and kind wishes. I love you very much.”

Rob also shined at another one of his older sisters’ birthdays this year. Back in April, when Kourtney turned 41, she revealed that her brother surprised her with a timeless present. The Poosh creator revealed at the time that Rob got her something that couldn’t be bought in a store: her late father Robert Kardashian Sr.’s record collection.

Khloe Kardashian Reveals Her Secrets For Potty Training 2-Year-Old True Thompson – E! NEWS

True Thompson’s Most Memorable Moments

True Thompson has achieved a big milestone!

Today, Khloe Kardashian took to Instagram Live and shared that her two-year-old with Tristan Thompson has started potty training. This update came about as the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star discussed her partnership with Pampers Easy-Ups training underwear.

Per the mother of one, partnering with Pampers was a “no-brainer” since the training underwear features True’s favorite Trolls character, Queen Poppy (voiced by Anna Kendrick).

“Not only are they comfortable, not only do they have 12-hour protection, but also, Poppy! Poppy is on the Pampers,” Khloe declared. “And you have no idea how much that helps me with getting her…more excited for that.”

Not to mention, Khloe praised the training bottoms for feeling “like real underwear.” Apparently, True enjoys the idea that she’s wearing “big-girl underwear.”

So, how exactly is potty training going?

According to the Good American mogul, True is already “really good at keeping her Pampers dry.”

Yet, accidents happen. Thus, Khloe reminded those tuning into the live stream that there isn’t a “right way” or a “wrong way” to potty train a child.

“Everyone has accidents, everyone, I don’t know, just learns at their own pace,” the Revenge Body host added.

For Khloe, she said she utilizes incentives to get her little one to take to the toilet. Specifically, Khloe uses stickers and TV time as “rewards” for victories on the potty.

“I don’t believe in bribing, but there’s a difference between bribing and rewards. True gets rewards,” Khloe said. “Whatever your incentive is, that has to be only for potty time, it can’t be throughout the day, or else that’s going to confuse them. You have to give them a reason to want to go on the potty.”

Instagram

As Khloe detailed, she puts True on the toilet with a book “every hour” for five minutes. Furthermore, Khloe noted that she tries to make it an “exciting” experience.

The mother-daughter duo have been able to “give the potty training adventure [their] all” amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“It’s about consistency! I think potty training is all about consistency for me in this household, but I’m a very consistent type of girl,” she added.

While Khloe said earlier in the talk that she isn’t a “mind reader” and “not that experienced,” she knows her daughter’s tell-tale bathroom signs, which include standing in a corner by herself and a little pee dance.

“Sometimes she doesn’t but lately she’s been really good about telling me,” Khloe revealed.

Congrats to True on her big step!

Kim Kardashian Has the Best Reaction to Son Saint’s Mother’s Day Gift – E! NEWS

Kim Kardashian West’s Mommy 101 Moments on “KUWTK”

Even Kim Kardashian‘s kids have a tough time keeping up with her. 

The E! reality star shared a photo of the Mother’s Day gift 4-year-old son Saint West made for her last month, and needless to say, Kim wholeheartedly disagreed with a few of the toddler’s points.

The project asked Saint to answer a few fun facts about his world-famous mama, who he apparently thinks is just 11-years-old. 

When asked about her favorite activity, Saint responded, “to leave me alone.” Kim commented on the photo in response, “WTF.” 

Kim’s favorite food, according to Saint? Asparagus. However, Kim joked that she “hates” the vegetable. (Like we said, it’s tough to keep up with the one and only KKW.)

Saint also said he and Kim like to “buy apps on the iPad” together, however the mom-of-four maintained, “I don’t but he does LOL.” 

As for the one point that Kim did agree with, Saint wrote, “…my mom is special because she snuggles me and she buys things for me.” 

“Best thing ever!!! He got this right for sure!!!” Kim commented.

Instagram

It’s an exciting time in the Kardashian-West household these days. Kim revealed on Friday that son Psalm West, 1, is officially walking

“My baby boy Psalm is the sweetest! He just started walking!” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star shared alongside two sweet images of her and her bundle of joy.

Check out more adorable photo opps courtesy of Saint in our gallery below.

Instagram

Mean Muggin’

Though Saint West and older sis North West shared a brief détente to allow Mom a sweet snap with newborn brother Psalm West…but then their natural instincts took over. “It was going so good,” Kim Kardashian joked of the August pic. At least their side-eye was on point. 

Jackie Nickerson

Straight Cheesin’

Sure, the group was in Armenia for some serious business—namely so Kim could baptize Saint, Psalm and Chicago West at the Etchmiadzin Cathedral in Vagharshapat, “one of the most ancient Christian cathedrals in the world”—but that didn’t mean he had to cover up his megawatt grin. 

Instagram

Always Camera Ready

“I thought taking a pic with three kids was hard,” Kim Kardashian wrote on Instagram of this Bahamas group snap from August. “OMG this is almost impossible!” Fortunately, Saint had his gaze on lock.

Holding His Peace

The toddler already understands the importance of developing a signature look—pulling out his peace sign to pose next to an orchid. No wonder Kim has proclaimed, “Saint is my twin personality.”

Sweet Bros

Saint requested this snuggly July snap. His other ask, according to Kim’s Vogue‘s 73 Questions video, was to give baby Psalm a matching moniker: “Saint wants to name him Sainty too!”

Instagram

Doin’ it for the Gram

“Saint said he’s gonna pretend to sleep with his brother,” Kim shared of this July nap time opportunity with Psalm. “He always wants a pic to capture every moment.” Hmm…sounds familiar…

Instagram

The Masked Saint

Mere days after Psalm’s arrival this May, Saint proved he could rival even a newborn’s cuteness. “I’m Uncle Robbie, what’s your name?” he said in Mom’s Instagram video. 

E!

Cuddles for Chicago

“Mom, mom! Get one of me and Chicago, too!” Saint West, probably. 

Instagram

Just Like Dad

File this one under imitation is the best form of flattery? Saint seemed in on the joke when he recreated Dad Kanye West‘s “I Love It” music video look for last year’s Halloween costume. (Cousin Reign Disick stepped in as his Lil Pump.) And much like the video (viewed on YouTube upwards of 339 million times), Kim Kardashian knew she had a hit on her hand when she teased on Twitter, “Wait until you see Saint and Reign’s Halloween costume’s.” Her Instagram post charted more than 4 million likes.

What a Baller

After North got the chance to make her runway debut last year, posing in September’s LOL Surprise! fashion show, Saint was not about to be outdone. Joining Kanye at the Chicago Cubs-Chicago White Sox crosstown match at Guaranteed Rate Field the next day, the two-and-a-half-year-old tossed out the ceremonial first pitch. And though he was still a little small to push it all the way toward the mound, one could argue he bested 50 Cent‘s effort

Instagram

Mini Me

Kim has long maintained her son is her “twin.” When a fan speculated in September, “I feel like Saint is full on Kim including personality….North West is ye,” the reality star was quick to reply, “Facts.” But in this snapshot posted that same day, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians standout showed that maybe her boy takes after Dad just a little

ChiTown Love

Saint found himself a little buddy when sister Chicago came on the scene in 2018. When he wasn’t giving his tiny sibling hugs, he could often be found at her side in coordinating neutrals, like in this snap. Wrote Kim of the Kodak moment, “These two are inseparable.” 

Instagram

Sister Snuggles

Kim has made it clear that North isn’t exactly her little brother’s biggest fan, preferring to have her parents’ attention focused solely on her. “She’s like, ‘We’re having a tea party. No boys allowed.'” she shared in a 2017 interview. “She’ll slam the door on her brother’s face, and he’ll just start crying.” But since Chicago came along, Kim revealed months later to Ellen DeGeneres, the kindergartner is “doing better.” North “literally had a can of popcorn and was like, ‘Saint do you want some?’ She does not share with Saint, she does not hardly talk to Saint. So that was such a big moment in my household yesterday.” Another one worth capturing: their sweet bath time last May. 

Kim Kardashian West

A Disney Darling

While nothing may top last year’s Halloween win, Saint and North’s take on Aladdin is pretty darn irresistible, thanks, in part, to his camera stare down. The looks were inspired by North uncovering the Princess Jasmine costume Kim once wore in 2009. “North is crazy into Princess Jasmine right now,” Rob penned in a guest post for Kim’s blog. “So being the good mommy she is, she wore her old princess Jasmine costume to match North! They got a magic carpet, lamp and Saint had to be Aladdin.”

Snapchat

Wise Beyond His Years

To mark his 9-month birthday in September 2016, Saint showed off his already burgeoning Snapchat skills. With the help of Mom’s beloved filters, the tyke (who’s very name is a reference to his existence being a blessing after two tough pregnancies for Kim) was transformed into a ridiculously adorable old man baby…

Snapchat

Deer in Headlights

…and the very cutest of stags. 

Snapchat

Lil’ Charmer

In Saint’s early days, new photos were hard to come by, but this one—which popped up on Kim’s Snapchat in July 2016—proved the 7-month-old had already mastered his angles and heartstring-tugging smile. His conversation style was coming along as well. “He said Dada today, three times!” Kim told E! News days earlier. “And I was like, ‘Wait what?’ Kanye was so excited, he was like, ‘I told him to say that.’ And I was like, just I really wanted him to say ‘Mama’ first.”

Season 17 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians ended with major tension between Kourtney Kardashian and her sisters, Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian, over Kourt not wanting to share her personal life on the show. She threatened to quit, but decided to return for season 18, which premiered on March 26. Unfortunately, to Kim and Khloe’s disappointment, Kourtney still didn’t have a great attitude about being back on camera. “She could have made the decision to quit,” Khloe complained. “She chose to not quit, but she’s here today, exactly where we left off. It’s affecting my mood that she’s so miserable that we’re here doing our job that she has agreed to.”
