Queer Eye star Karamo Brown is making the media rounds promoting the new season of his hit Netflix show (season 3 drops today) and his memoir, Karamo: My Story of Embracing Purpose, Healing and Hope (in stores now). In a recent interview with The Washington Post, the culture expert expressed interest in politics.
Could he be ready to run for public office soon?
“I visited the Trump White House [last year] and I met with Karen Pence’s chief of staff with Creative Coalition [an arts advocacy nonprofit],” Brown told the out. “I’m actually excited to go back to the Trump White House because even though I didn’t vote for them, I think it’s important for us to find a space where we can talk to those who are different from us.”
So, does this mean Brown is ready to throw his name in the 2020 race? Not quite.
“I can tell you right now I do not want to be president,” he said. “We’ve already had one too many reality stars as president. But something in California—maybe governor, maybe senator—but that’s a long way. I’m enjoying filming Queer Eye.
