Kim Kardashian Arrives at the White House, Here’s What She Discussed With Trump

What a crazy world we live in.

We’ve seen a lot of “odd couples” over the years, but there’s been no stranger pairing than that of President Donald Trump and celebrity-in-chief Kim Kardashian. The reality TV stars recently held a meeting together in the White House to chat about prison reform, a critical issue that is impacting our communities.

Kardashian is the wife of infamous rapper Kanye West, who recently became the talk of the town by coming out in support of Trump, despite receiving mountains of pushback from the liberals who rule in the entertainment industry.

Here’s how the meeting went.

The reality queen donned high heels and an all-black ensemble for the highly anticipated White House meeting.

Kardashian was spotted entering the West Wing around 4:45 p.m. and leaving about an hour later.

She spoke with both Trump and Jared Kushner, whom she met through Ivanka Trump, according to sources.

The meeting came about as a result of Kardashian reaching out upon hearing the story of Alice Marie Johnson, a great-grandmother who was convicted of a drug conspiracy but has paid her debt to society after spending 21 years in prison.

The meeting went “well,” sources said, and now the decision is in Trump’s hands.

After the meeting, Kardashian headed to Ivanka and Jared’s DC home for a private dinner.

It was to be a continuation of the White House meeting, since Kushner is a passionate advocate for criminal justice reform after living through his father’s imprisonment.

The meeting was actually held on Alice Marie Johnson’s birthday.

At this point, given the details of Johnson’s case, it’s safe to say it’s probably time for her to be released. Far worse criminals are let go for much less time served. Why not Johnson?

Prison reform is desperately need in America because our current system is broken. Dangerous violent criminals often go free or receive short sentences, while those involved in drug related offenses end up getting the book thrown at them. It’s not proportionate justice.

Here’s to hoping this issue begins to garner more attention and a solid solution developed that restores integrity to our justice system.

Crew of Alec Baldwin Film Walked Off Set Over Safety Fears Hours Before Fatality

WHOA!

Published

on

While the fatal shooting of a Hollywood cinematographer has been deemed an accident by those involved, there appears to have been a pattern of negligence on-set, leading up to the incident.

Alec Baldwin last week discharged a “prop” firearm in the direction of crew members on the set of his film “Rust”, and, somehow, a live round had been loaded into the weapon.  The shot killed one member of the production staff and wounded another.

As it turns out, crew members were already concerned about the way in which the weapons were being handled.

The 24-year-old head armorer in charge of guns on the Alec Baldwin film where cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was tragically shot and killed on Thursday had admitted she wasn’t sure she was ready for the job in an interview before filming started.

‘I almost didn’t take the job because I wasn’t sure if I was ready, but doing it, it went really smoothly,’ Hannah Gutierrez-Reed said in a podcast interview last month after leading the firearms department for The Old Way, starring Nicolas Cage – her first time as head armorer.

And that’s not all:

It comes as crew on the film revealed they walked off set hours before the fatal accident over safety fears after firearms were accidentally discharged three times – including once by Baldwin’s stunt double who had been told the gun was not loaded, and twice in a closed cabin.

A search warrant released Friday said that Gutierrez-Reed laid out three prop guns on a cart outside the filming location, and first assistant director Dave Halls grabbed the gun from the cart and brought it inside to Baldwin, unaware that it was loaded with live rounds.

‘Cold gun!’ shouted Halls before handing the gun to Baldwin, using the phrase to signal to cast and crew that the gun was safe to fire for the scene, the warrant said.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing, and there is the potential for someone to be charged in the case still.

Alec Baldwin Shoots and Kills Crew Member on Set of Latest Movie

Hollywood experts are stunned.

Published

on

Hollywood was rocked on Thursday after a nigh-unfathomable accident occurred on the set of the latest project from Alec Baldwin, and there are still plenty of questions left unanswered.

It all began when Baldwin discharged a “prop” gun on set, meant to be loaded only with blanks and dummy rounds.

Alec Baldwin allegedly repeatedly asked ‘why was I handed a hot gun?’ after he accidentally shot and killed a female cinematographer and wounded a director yesterday on the set of his new film Rust.

Halyna Hutchins, 42, died shortly after being shot by Baldwin around 1.50pm Thursday at Bonanza Creek Ranch, near the city of Santa Fe in New Mexico. Joel Souza, 48, the film’s director, was also hurt and spent several hours in hospital, but was released later the same evening.

Police have disclosed few details about the shooting, saying only that a ‘projectile’ was fired by a ‘prop gun’ and they are investigating.

At close range, even blanks can be dangerous, but it was not clear why Baldwin was pointing a gun at anyone, period.

Mike Tristano, 60, a Hollywood armorer with 30 years’ experience who spoke to the Dailymail.com, said ultimate responsibility for gun safety on movie set rests with the armorer.

The movie’s armorer or weapons master has not been been named. Sante Fe Sheriff’s Department says it will continue to interview ‘witnesses’ on Friday.

‘There should have been blanks in the gun, the on-set armorer’s job is to check that before handing the weapon over,’ Tristan said.

‘They then make sure that the actor stands on a mark and never points the gun at the crew or cast… the editing makes it seem like they were pointing at their co-actor.

‘That’s why everyone in the industry is very confused. How this happened is a total mystery at the moment.’

Baldwin has not been charged with a crime at this time, but the investigation is still ongoing.
