The Oval Office turned into reality TV on Wednesday.
None other than Kim Kardashian graced the halls of the White House to discuss prison reform with President Donald Trump.
Dying in Prison
Kardashian has become an advocate for criminal justice since becoming buds with a convicted drug dealer.
Alicia Maria Johnson has been in prison for 21 years on drug-related charges after being sentenced to life in 1997.
Unfortunately, for Johnson, she was not on the list when former President Barack Obama released almost 2,000 criminals just before leaving office.
Kardashian has called Johnson’s sentence “unfair,” and claims Johnson has paid her debt to society after being in prison for more than two decade and should be released.
In addition to taking Johnson’s case to the president, Kardashian has also done fundraising for Johnson’s legal team.
One of Johnson’s attorneys, Brittany Barnett, stated that their main goal is to get Alicia “free, and we want to raise awareness of the broader issue that people are sentenced to die in prison.”
She added that Johnson “is serving the same amount of time as the Unabomber. People need to feel that.”
How She Got In
Everyone wants to know how Kardashian managed to get an audience with the president. Kim apparently reached out to his daughter, Ivanka, who put her in contact with her husband, Jared Kushner, who is also a criminal justice reform proponent.
Kushner then proposed the sit down with the president, and after several weeks, the meeting finally took place.
While Kardashian’s husband, Kanye West, openly supports Trump, Kim has never really chimed in on the subject for herself.
It will be interesting to see how she feels now that she has managed to get some one-on-one time with the one and only Commander-in-Chief.
