Yes, you read that right, reality star Kim Kardashian is looking to meet with reality star president Donald Trump to discuss prison reform. The visit is schedule for Wednesday, where Kim will sit down with senior adviser Jared Kushner, and possibly DT, to discuss our broken prison system.
Now, we can understand the immediate “wtf” reaction you must be feeling; however, there is a redeeming notion to Kimmie’s somewhat misguided efforts. Thankfully, Kardashian will not be taking this trip alone; she’s bringing along her attorney Shawn Holley (O.J. Simpson, Lindsay Lohan, Tupac Shakur, etc.). In addition, Kim and Shawn will not only be discussing prison reform as a whole, but, more specifically, the imprisonment of Alice Marie Johnson — a 62-year-old great-grandmother who was sentenced to life in prison and has served more than 20 years for a low-level drug offense.
Mrs. West has been advocating for Johnson’s release for quite some time and if she can get this little old Black lady set free, then by all means, have at it!
However, Twitter is still giving Kardashian the side-eye for taking on a task that is seemingly well beyond her wheelhouse — even if her intentions are good.
Ummm… I thought y’all were joking when the first thing I read after opening my Twitter was #KimKardashian would be discussing none other than prison reform with Jared Kushner at the WH. As if we couldn’t sink any lower… I’m done! pic.twitter.com/DDxugRAjV2

@realDonaldTrump just dropped the biggest diss to the P.O.C. in 2018 for meeting with #KimKardashian to discuss prison reform. That’s harder and more damaging than pusha t diss to drake straight up. #News #facts pic.twitter.com/seYqqKlf4W

Trump: I need someone to help me with prison reform.
Kim Kardashian: (raises hand) I had sex with Ray J.

Asking #KimKardashian about prison reform is like asking a baby how we should cure cancer
