On Monday, Kim Kardashian West met with ole president dude Trump to discuss prison reform. Sounds off but also interesting in a good way. She specifically wanted to get help for a woman by the name of Alice Johnson who’s been in prison for 21 years, for drug trafficking charges .

As of yesterday, Trump granted clemency for Alice Johnson with the help of Kim of course. I have a few thoughts on this, positive and negative.

The Positives

  • Kim could have been touched by Alice’s story and wanted to sincerely help her.

  • She (Kim) somewhat has a powerful voice to some communities and knows her voice could be heard by talking to Trump.

  • She wants this to be the start of prison reform and be the celebrity face of it.

The Negatives

  • Since its known that she likes attention, maybe she was doing this to get MORE attention, maybe some extra content for her show.

  • She could want acceptance from the black community OR anyone who’s said that her and her family brainwashed Kanye since there’s a Kardashian curse with the men–Lamar, Kanye, Tyga, etc.

  • Lastly, she COULD be doing this for Kanye..here me out. Since Kanye is pro-Trump, he could’ve talked Kim into meeting with Trump about prison reform to make Trump look like a decent guy. To top it off, she probably brought up Alice Johnson’s case and since she is a black woman, this would make Trump look like he cares for black people and he would/could have support from the black community; and with him granting clemency for the woman, there will be a positive light shun on it. AND it also help Kanye not look as bad for supporting Trump.  

I know the last is one hell of a theory, but it does make sense when you take it  into deep thought.

Overall

I think what Kim is doing is good, as far as helping free this woman. Whether or not she did it for attention, or out of the kindness of her heart, there is a woman who served a 21 year bid for a non-violent crime, is now free with Kim Kardashian’s help.
