This week in keeping up with Kim Kardashian’s causes: a visit to President Trump’s White House.
The reality-TV mogul met with the reality-TV president Wednesday to talk criminal justice reform and plead for clemency on behalf of Alice Marie Johnson, a great-grandmother serving life in prison without parole for a first-time nonviolent drug offense. Kardashian reportedly also spoke with senior Trump adviser Jared Kushner, whose ample White House portfolio includes prison reform. (Meanwhile, her husband Kanye West declared his love for Trump in April, tweeting that the two shared “dragon blood.”)
Kardashian is better known for her E! show, beauty and fashion ventures, and sprawling social-media empire. But her previous advocacy efforts have included supporting the L.A.-based homeless shelter Alexandria House; urging recognition of the Armenian genocide (her family is of Armenian descent); calling for stricter gun laws; and enlisting her attorneys’ help last year in the case of 30-year-old Cyntoia Brown, a sex-trafficking survivor sentenced to life for killing a man who solicited her for sex when she was a teenager.
