The sudden turn of events for Alice Marie Johnson who had served 21 decades of her life sentence had arrived after getting some unexpected assistance from socialite Kim Kardashian. Kardashian had the honor to meet with the president in the Oval Office on May 30 and plead her case for Johnson to be shipped totally free for her non-violent offense.
Kardashian has been a long time advocated for Johnson and despite it appearing like an unlikely fight the socialite would get involved with.
Days after her dialogue with Trump, he granted her desire and awarded Johnson with liberty, rescuing her spending the remainder of her life behind bars. Hours after getting the fantastic news, Kardashian responded to the presidential prefer with what she openly said about Trump.
West has been a massive influence in swaying how black communities feel about the president, but today we know how his wife really feels.
Kardashian needs all to know that simply because Trump helped her, she’s no pawn because of him. While she didn’t specifically express her support , she did deny CNN’s claim that he”used” her. Since he helped her, she must have spoken his jealousy, particularly since he actually did listen to her around Johnson and agreed it had been deserved.
He did not do it for Kardashian because of who she is, but because of the factual reasons she gave. Trump also didn’t commute the sentence for attention, he did it because it had been the right thing to do.
We just wish that Kim had taken the opportunity to state these things from the interview as it would have made a big difference in Hollywood’s skewed understanding of the president.
Fox News reports:
Kim Kardashian denied Thursday that she was being used as a White House pawn later she helped a great-grandmother get clemency from President Trump over nonviolent drug charges.
Kardashian shot down criticism in an interview on CNN. Kardashian campaigned on the behalf of Alice Marie Johnson.
“I think Kanye’s already given him validity in that manner,” Kardashian said speaking to the remarks that her husband and Trump have left about each other.
“I had been working on this before. I don’t believe I’d be used. In the end of the afternoon, he heard me out. We got the work done. What could he really use me for?”
Johnson, 63, has been serving a life sentence with no possibility of parole after being convicted of a first-time nonviolent drug offense.
“Justice has been served today, and it is long overdue. Life in prison without the chance of parole screams a individual is past hope, beyond salvation. And in Alice’s case, it is a punishment that certainly didn’t match the offense.
President Trump saved Alice Johnson’s life today,” Johnson’s attorney Brittany K. Barnett said in a statement. “We’re very grateful and hope the President has been utilize his clemency power to save lives”
Kardashian thanked Trump at a tweet.
Johnson was convicted in 1996 on eight criminal counts related to some Memphis-based cocaine trafficking operation. Her involvement with cocaine dealers allegedly came after she lost her job, her son was killed, she got her house had been foreclosed on.
While Kardashian states that she will not be adding to the validity of President Trump, that seems a little hard to think. Having the Kardashian team in Trump’s corner could end up being an important asset in 2020.
They appeal to the younger voters which traditionally don’t vote. A Kardashian/West effect could bring an army of young voters.
Earlier this season Kim’s sister Kylie said on social media that she had been bored with the social site Snapchat. Overnight Snapchat’s stock dropped, costing the company billions.
President Trump is an influencer, and he fully recognizes the value of getting the Kardashian/West team in his corner. I would not be surprised to see Trump utilizing the power pair to assist him in 2020.
