This Is Why Kim Kardashian Visited The White House Yesterday

Share

Kardashian reportedly made a legal argument to Mr Trump for why he should pardon Alice Johnson, a 62-year-old great-grandmother who is serving a life sentence without parole for a first-time drug offence.

The Post, however, focused primarily on Kardashian's famous derriere, mocking her as "Kim Thong Un" and referring to the meeting as "The Other Big Ass Summit". As Yahoo points out, Johnson is one of the whopping 39% of the prison population that is serving time for nonviolent offenses - despite the fact that they'd likely benefit from alternative rehabilitative options.

Although Johnson's case has captured nationwide attention for years, Kardashian West started lobbying for Johnson's release late last year.

Greg Gutfeld reacted to CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta criticizing the meeting between President Donald Trump and socialite Kim Kardashian West. "Today is for you", Kardashian West tweeted Wednesday.

It's the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star's mission for Alice to be pardoned for her wrongdoing.

In addition to Trump, Kardashian met with Jared Kushner.

At a point when Kardashian was pregnant with her first child in 2013, Trump felt moved to comment on her appearance again, opining, "She's gotten a little bit large".

Kardashian West was set to meet with advisor Jared Kushner, who is tasked with overseeing efforts to reform the U.S. prison system.

Kanye shocked with his lengthy rant on his political leanings, declaring his love for Donald Trump and insisting he has the right to independent thought.

"Our hope is that we get Miss Alice's freedom - today is her 63rd birthday, her 21st birthday behind bars - so we are hoping that Trump realizes that there is no justifiable reason for Johnson to spend the rest of her life in prison", Barnett said.

"I've been in communication with the White House and trying to bring her case to the president's desk and figure out how we can get her out", she explained.

Just last week, the president granted a rare posthumous pardon to boxing's first black heavyweight champion, clearing Jack Johnson's name more than 100 years after what many saw as his racially charged conviction.

Johnson previously told Business Insider that Kardashian West was her "war angel".

"We are praying for mercy in my mom's case... that this nightmare is finally coming to an end", Tretessa Johnson told the BBC.
