Kim Kardashian Just Met With President Trump

Kim Kardashian Just Met With President Trump

Kim Kardashian, center, arrives with her attorney Shawn Chapman Holley at the security entrance of the White House in Washington, Wednesday, May 30, 2018.

Welp, it looks like it's not just a rumor anymore, because Trump tweeted this photo earlier today.

It's hard not to be skeptical of the meeting between the two not only because of the pair's lack of knowledge on prison reform, but because of Kanye West's recent endorsement of Trump.

Reality star and mega-beauty mogul Kim Kardashian is headed to the White House Wednesday to meet with President Trump and senior advisor Jared Kushner.

Kardashian West is reported to have asked the president to pardon Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old serving a life sentence for a first-time non-violent drug offence, reported The Guardian. The case elicited widespread outrage when Brown was given a life sentence without eligibility for parole for 51 years.

Johnson's case came into limelight a year ago when Kardashian West tweeted about it.

"The system has failed", Kardashian tweeted in November.

Kardashian now wants Trump to pardon Johnson.

"To keep Miss Alice in prison for the rest of her life is morally and economically indefensible", said Brittany Barnett, who is part of the legal team set up by Kardashian West to represent Johnson. The 37-year-old businesswoman's interest in criminal justice seems to have been sparked by a number of high-profile cases of controversial sentences against women. She had reportedly spoken to the adviser "several times" in the past about Johnson's sentence.

Johnson has missed the births of her grandchildren and great-grandchild while in prison. Listen, it's a not great state of affairs when you need a massive celebrity to get the attention of the president and fix gross injustices, but if Kim K. can get it done, more power to her. The first daughter also appears in her doorway as the guests leave the house around 8 p.m.

"We're optimistic about Ms. Johnson's future and hopeful that she - and so many like her - will get a second probability at life", she wrote in a follow-up tweet.

Behind bars, she has become an ordained minister and a prison tutor.
