Kim Kardashian Meets Donald Trump at The White House

Kim Kardashian Meets Donald Trump at The White House

The New York Post was hoping for a few laughs when they released their new cover featuring Kim Kardashian and Donald Trump, but the women of "The View" were hard pressed to see the humor in it on Thursday.

Kim Kardashian, the 37-year-old reality TV and pop culture icon, made an official visit to the White House on Wednesday, seeking a presidential pardon for a 62-year-old Alabama woman who is now serving a life sentence behind bars with no chance of parole for a first-time drug conviction.

Johnson's story went viral thanks in part to a Mic video interview that reached more than 4.1 million views.

Trump's senior adviser Jared Kushner was among the officials who attended the meeting.

Others joked that Kardashian was probably smarter than Trump - and since prison reform is urgently needed - their meeting might be a good thing after all.

Kardashian West took interest in Johnson's case after her story went viral a year ago. "I'll do whatever it takes to get her out", she added.

Wednesday is also Johnson's birthday, which Mrs Kardashian West noted in a tweet this morning.

He also pardoned vice president Dick Cheney's former chief of staff Lewis "Scooter" Libby.

"She has a job waiting for her", Kardashian West said.

Kardashian's husband, rapper Kanye West, sparked headlines last month after posting a series of tweets in which he praised Trump's "dragon energy" and showed off his signed "Make America Great Again" hat.

The 37-year-old reality star organised a meeting with the US President at the White House in Washington DC on Wednesday, in a quest to free great-grandmother Alice Marie Johnson from prison. "And so far, the White House has been really receptive to my calls, and I'm grateful for that", she said. She was wearing the same black suit when she attended the Oval Office meeting earlier in the day, in which she meant to discuss prison reform and a pardon for incarcerated first-time drug offender Alice Marie Johnson.

Perhaps Kardashian's awkwardness stemmed from repeated comments made by Trump about her physical appearance, comments which described her figure and personality in unflattering terms.

"We are praying for mercy in my mom's case... that this nightmare is finally coming to an end", Tretessa Johnson told the BBC. For people in my life the idea of Trump is pretty much a 50 50 split but I don't tell a Hillary supporter not to support Hillary I love Hillary too'.
