Progressives have been having a collective meltdown for the last several weeks after Kanye West came out in support of President Trump with a series of tweets featuring the rapper with a signed MAGA hat.
Folks have been telling him to “shut up and sing,” rather than share his political views, which is hypocritical to the max, given the vast majority of Hollywood “elites” are all hardcore left-wingers who are constantly expressing their own opinions on the issues of the day in the most obnoxious ways possible.
Well, if the left had a hard time swallowing that pill, then they are most definitely going to choke on this one.
Apparently Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, is reaching out to the Trump administration for a very special cause.

Kardashian has reached out to the White House, and specifically President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, for a cause she is rallying behind, according to Vanity Fair which labeled them the “unlikeliest crime-fighting duo.”
Kardashian is reportedly working to secure a pardon for a 62-year-old great-grandmother who is serving a life sentence for nonviolent drug-related offenses.
Alice Marie Johnson had spent 21 years in jail as of October 2017 when Kardashian shared a Mic video about Johnson onto her Twitter page.

Johnson was first arrested back in 1993 and was then convicted of drug conspiracy and money laundering in 1997.
After going through a rough patch in her life — divorce, loss of a child, bankruptcy — Johnson became involved with cocaine dealers.
This was her very first offense and it landed her a life sentence without the possibility of parole.
Kardashian wants to bring attention to the case and get it put on the president’s desk in the hope he will grant Johnson a pardon.
The reason she’s reaching out to Kushner is because he and his wife Ivanka Trump are champions of criminal justice reform and might be able to influence the president to take a look at the case.
Johnson has become an ordained minister while in prison and mentors and tutors other inmates. She had hoped former President Obama would grant the pardon, but she was not among the 46 people who had their sentences commuted in 2015.
At the end of the day, it seems Johnson has turned her life around and given that her crimes were not violent in nature, it seems fitting to give her a second chance at life as a free person and not have her finish her journey behind bars.
One of the great things about America is that there’s so many opportunities for a comeback. What better way to showcase that than by giving Johnson a second chance?
Legendary Guitarist Set to Boycott Venues Requiring Vaccine Proof
With nearly half of Americans now fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the Biden administration has hit a wall. The folks who are left unvaccinated are, by and large, abstaining by their own decision. They don’t want a vaccine, and they don’t believe that the federal government has any right to tell them otherwise. But some private companies have begun suggesting that they may institute new regulations that would require customers or users to prove that they’ve been vaccinated in order to interact with them. This could include some convert venues requiring that ticket holders can prove their vaccine status before seeing their favorite musical acts once they hit the road again. Legendary blues guitarist Eric Clapton isn’t into it. At all. Eric Clapton has said he will not perform at any venues that require attendees to prove that they have received their full vaccination from the coronavirus. The musician and outspoken vaccine skeptic issued a statement that was highly critical of U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement that vaccine passes would be required to enter nightclubs and other live performance venues in light of increasing coronavirus cases. The “Wonderful Tonight” singer issued a statement on the Telegram account of film producer and architect Robin Monotti, a known COVID-19 vaccination skeptic as well. In it, he issued a direct response to Johnson’s announcement and called the situation for those who do not wish to get the vaccine discriminatory. “Slow hand” got right to the point. “Following the PM’s announcement on Monday the 19th of July 2021 I feel honor-bound to make an announcement of my own,” Clapton said. “I wish to say that I will not perform on any stage where there is a discriminated audience present. Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel…
Tuckers Crosses Blue Line, Attacks Capitol Police Officer Set to Testify at Capitol
The officer’s lawyers were quick to respond.
It is well understood that passion is a large part of the punditry game. Human beings want to know that the person delivering their news is invested in the story, (for some reason), and the primetime players are all very aware of this fact. But there are times in which the rabbit hole that they’re chasing stories down becomes too dark, too cavernous for even the most skilled orator, or the fastest on-their-feet thinkers that we have. Sometimes things go a little far in the mainstream media, and the nation at large leers in to rebuke the extremes. Tucker Carlson may very well be having one of these moments. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson sparked outcry Wednesday night when he called Black Capitol police officer Harry Dunn an “angry left-wing political activist.” “On Tuesday, [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi will call on police officer Harry Dunn. Dunn will pretend to speak for the country’s law enforcement community, but it turns out Dunn has very little in common with your average cop. Dunn is an angry, left-wing political activist,” said Carlson, referring to Dunn’s forthcoming testimony in front of the Congressional committee converged to investigate the deadly Jan. 6 riot. He pointed to social media posts Dunn, who is Black, has made about racism before. The backlash came swiftly. Dunn’s lawyers, David Laufman and Mark Zaid, released a statementWednesday night that read, “Tonight Fox News allowed its host Tucker Carlson, who has not served a day in uniform, whether military or law enforcement, to criticize the heroism and service of African-American U.S. Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn. Our client has served 13 years in law enforcement and on January 6, 2021, fought against an insurrectionist violent crowd — no doubt many of them Carlson’s supporters — to protect the lives of our elected officials, including…
