Kim Kardashian Meeting With Trump to Discuss Pardoning Alice Marie Johnson

The degree to which Ms. Kardashian West's interest in the overhaul of the criminal justice system expands beyond Ms. Johnson's case is unclear.

And once the photos of the oval office meeting began making the rounds social media users had many thoughts.

Today's edition of the paper came with the headline, "The Other Big Ass Summit" and "Trump Meets Rump", along with a subhead exclaiming, "Kim Thong Un pitches prez on prison reform".

Kardashian met with Trump in hopes of pardoning a great-grandmother who is now serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for a non-violent, first-time offense. She's spent the last 21 years behind bars on charges of conspiracy to possess cocaine, attempted possession of cocaine and money laundering.

In a letter to US District Judge Samuel H. Mays in 2017, who now oversees her case, Johnson expressed her "deep remorse" for the crime she had committed 20 years ago and said that her "bad choices" had affected her life and impacted her entire family.

None of this really matters if Kardashian gets her wish and Johnson gets out of prison.

In recent weeks Kardashian's husband, Kanye West, has publicy supported President Trump.

Johnson's supporters say she has been a model prisoner.

"There was a reason why I was looking at my Twitter at that moment", she told Mic.

Which brings us to her White House meeting with Trump.

A member of Johnson's legal team told CBS News' Jacqueline Alemany the meeting between the president and Kardashian was very "positive", but the president did not make a decision during the meeting about whether or not he will move forward with a pardon.

However, if Trump were to grant Alice clemency, it would go against his approach to drugs so far.

Kardashian West's White House visit was also slated to include time with the president's son in law, Jared Kushner, whose own father served federal prison time for campaign finance violations, tax evasion and witness tampering.

But others have pointed to previous examples of celebrities meeting political leaders and accused Mrs Kardashian West's critics of displaying double standards.

Say what you will about the Kardashians (personally I find it almost impossible not to admire the hell out of the Kris Jenner Machine and their collective business acumen).
