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.Trending:
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.
