Kim Kardashian Meets President Trump
Kim Kardashian met with Donald Trump to talk prison reform and the world is in utter disbelief. The two reality stars met reportedly to discuss Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old grandmother who is serving a life sentence for a first-time non-violent drug offence, to be pardoned.
It’s not known exactly what was discussed, but the President had invited Kim to the White House to discuss prison reform, and after the meeting they both tweeted their thanks along with a picture of Kim standing behind the desk in the oval office.
Kim wrote: ‘I would like to thank President Trump for his time this afternoon. It is our hope that the President will grant clemency to Ms. Alice Marie Johnson who is serving a life sentence for a first-time, non-violent drug offense.’ She added: ‘We are optimistic about Ms. Johnson’s future and hopeful that she -and so many like her-will get a second chance at life.’ The reaction was of utter disbelief, many finding it hard to accept Kim might know a thing or two about prison reform, while some made calls for Kim to run for president.
It was difficult for many to take Kim, seriously as she discussed politics with the country’s leader, and her knowledge of the subject seemed to come out of left field.
She also garnered criticism for being the one to stand up and fight for Anne Marie. Yet it wasn’t lost on others that Kim was attempting to be part of a positive change, with some going as far as calling for her to run for president
