Kim Kardashian met with Donald Trump in the Oval Office about ‘prison reform’

trump2

Donald Trump posted a photo from his “meeting” with Kim Kardashian on his Twitter account with the message “Great meeting with @KimKardashian today, talked about prison reform and sentencing.” We knew Kim was going to the White House yesterday, after she had many conversations with Jared Kushner about prison and sentencing reform, which is one of Jared’s “issues.” Kim has become something of a low-key reform advocate as well, using her celebrity and clout to draw attention to a handful of inmates who should be pardoned. I asked yesterday if the ends would justify the means, if Trump did end up pardoning Alice Marie Johnson or anyone else on Kim’s radar. As of yet, Trump didn’t pardon Alice Marie. But he did get his photo-op. Kim also tweeted her thanks to the white supremacist:

Obviously, I have mixed feelings about this. Kim is not a single-issue advocate, and she’s raising mixed-race children in America. In a perfect world, of course she should have absolutely nothing to do with a fascist or a white supremacist or a misogynistic sexual assailant. Obviously, Trump just wanted the photo-op and HE was using HER. This hurts her brand more than anything else, and I’m disgusted with her that she stupidly allowed herself to be used as a prop in the sh-tshow of this presidency.

…Now all that being said, I find it extremely annoying how people are mocking Kim like she’s just a dumb bimbo who can’t understand anything vaguely political or social. She’s not an expert at any of this, and she would be the first to admit that. But I find the coverage and the mockery of Kim to be rather sexist and gross too. She has every right to try to use her celebrity for good, and to raise awareness of the social and political issues she cares about. She’s trying, however imperfectly.

(I did laugh at “Big Ass Summit” though.)

    I want to know if any footage( probably not with 45) make it onto KUWTK? This family would not let any opportunity pass that would not benefit them in some way

  2. Clare says:

    Can’t hate on her for this. I know it legitimises Cheeto but the twat is already in office – if she or anyone else can leverage their celebrity to help save someone, then so be it.

    I for one am happy to see KKW doing something with potential for positive impact.

    • Eleonor says:

      I agree.
      If she uses her media power for something good I can’t blame.

    • KLO says:

      Kim is doing a good job at bringing attention to those kinds of problems. There is no reason to mock her for this.

      The only ones that look dumb here is the press with the nasty articles.

      Plus, I also love love love her black super-non-sexy outfit she wore. Girl is smart.

    • Kitten says:

      “Kim Kardashian went to the White House to discuss prison reform and now Trump is pardoning the most corrupt, white collar criminals like Dinesh D’Souza and soon perhaps Rod Blagojevich and Martha Stewart. Meanwhile, Alice Marie Johnson is still languishing in prison.”

      -Eugene Gu

      He just pardoned D’Souza, an UNABASHED RACIST–a guy who mocked Rosa Parks and said slavery wasn’t that bad. Google what he said about both Michelle and Barack (if you dare).
      Great if he eventually pardons Alice but for now, seriously– f*ck Kim Kardashian.

      All that was accomplished thus far was a shiny photo op between two reality TV stars. Gah. I seriously wanna tear my hair out right now. Gonna go take some deep breaths lol.

  3. Nelll says:

    Oh please, if Kim didn’t see anything wrong when her husband shiting all over a legend’s memory by using her drug infested bathroom pix as an album cover, if Kim didn’t publicly condemn her husband when he said slavery was a choice, then she should not expect praise. By the way, what excatly is Kim’s brand?

    • Milla says:

      Which cover?
      I can’t with Kanye.

      And pardon my ignorance, but didn’t Obama said no pardon to that same person?

      • Anika says:

        @Milla: Yes, Obama refused to pardon the same criminal that Kim is advocating for. Maybe just due to his boiling, seething hatred and jealousy of Obama, 45 will pardon her instead, just to spite Obama?

  4. Larelyn says:

    Trump is such an idiot – he’s sitting there with a huge grin thinking this pic is such a celebrity coup, and there Kim is, looking dour, dressed in black with no extra skin showing, barely smiling. He must be thinking “i’ve made it now, even the Koven is asking for favors”. I like to think she one upped him by not caving in to his petty narcissistic photo op posturing. She is there, looking like she means business, and he looks like a fan at a comic-con. Idiot.

    • Pandora says:

      The Koven LOL

    • Esmom says:

      Yeah, I noticed the same thing. Who would have ever thought Kim K would be more dignified, informed and presidential than our actual president?

    • Beth says:

      Looks as foolish as he did with the Pope. He has a yuge shit eating grin stretched across his ugly orange face while the other person like Kim or the Pope don’t look happy to be there

    • boredblond says:

      Don’t think kim’s face is capable of mustering a smile..that aside, the tab headlines cracked me up. There are valid legal organizations that work on behalf of prisoner’s rights, so kimmee..ever put your money where your face is?..only if there’s a photo op..

    • adastraperaspera says:

      Doesn’t look like she wants to be there doing this. She’s having to appear for some reason. Bribe? Extortion? I don’t think this meeting is what it seems.

      • AnnaKist says:

        I wondered something similar. The Fail has a story that after this meeting, she had dinner with the Kushners. , Ehh, a pox on the lot of them.

  5. Pandora says:

    I sincerely hope that Alice Marie Johnson is pardoned. Equally i hope the Bloviating Tangerine is brought low in the midterms, but more importantly, I deeply and sincerely hope that Kim knows her filler abuse is starting to make her look like a Jack Nicholsons portayal of the Joker just a tad.

    • Alexandria says:

      I feel like she got an extra filler shot for this photo op .

    • Elkie says:

      On the one hand AMJ has probably served a sentence far longer than she would have gotten in any other western country, on the other hand she was a grown-ass adult involved for a long time in transporting a very large amount of cocaine, with all the associated horrible human rights abuses and murders that occur as part of that industry.

      There are plenty of people languishing in prison for far lesser crimes who are more worthy of release. You know, the ones put there by Jeff Sessions on Trump’s orders….

    • Bea says:

      Well he’s busy pardoning Dinesh D’Souza today. He’s so gross.

      • Kitten says:

        HE IS SO F*CKING VILE!!!!!!!

        He loooves his racists and can’t stand people of color.

  6. lassie says:

    Her face is pretty jacked here.

  7. Digital Unicorn says:

    The coverage is horrible and she does not deserve this – she is actually trying to help people. I don’t have a lot of time generally for her but she puts her money and celebrity where her mouth is to help other who are less fortunate that herself and that is what matters esp in these times.

    She knew he’d use her for a photo op but she still went ahead. He gets more disgusting looking every day.

    • Clare says:

      Yeah I’m not loving the hateful and misogynistic comments about this – why do we have to always go for the easiest shot (her looks)? She is putting her considerable celebrity (however attained) to positive use by trying to help someone that most of us had never heard about.

      Disagree with her politics – fine. Disagree with his engaging with these shitheads – fine. But why do we have to stoop to comments about her face and arse? To me it’s the same as when people comment on the length of Theresa May’s trousers – what have they got to do with anything??

      Also f y’all for making me defend these people!! Lol

    • Spittair says:

      I agree. She knew she’d be the subject of ridicule, accusations of not being a policy expert (even though she never claimed to be), and possible ass jokes but still went and had a conversation, like many celebrities who met Obama to discuss any given important issue. And of course she would be welcomed, the right’s desperation for cultural relevance is obvious with their propping up of charlatans like Candace Owens and newly minted love of Kanye. But if Kim can help or bring attention to cases like that of this poor woman and that other young girl who’s sitting in jail for killing her pimp, then I say why not.

    • Josephine says:

      To me, it’s not about her looks, it’s about the willingness to exploit anyone and anything for more attention. That’s disgusting, regardless of whether it works in one person’s favor every once in awhile. This isn’t about prison reform — there are people who have dedicated their lives, intelligence, careers to that issue, and no one cares, no one takes that seriously. This is about her efforts for one person, efforts that bring attention to her and rehab an image that has been seriously tainted. Getting a pardon for one person isn’t going to prompt or further prison reform in any way. In fact, it gives Trump an excuse to do absolutely nothing and still pretend (and have some of the public believe) that he actually did do something, does have a heart. And therein lies the real danger.

      • KLO says:

        Getting a pardon for one person will save this persons life.
        I would say that being humiliated for a week by the press is worth saving someone from decades of imprisonment.
        Kim obviously seems to think so.
        Let`s be real, no one person can “start the prison reform”
        You gotta do what you can.

        i don´t see in any way how Kim benefits from this other than knowing that she has helped a woman who needs help.

      • Sophia's side eye says:

        Thank you, Josephine!

        KLO, Kim benefits from this because she badly needs the good PR thanks to her white supremacist husband. They’re all over Trump because he’ll actually entertain them, unlike Obama who rightly called Kanye a jack*$$. Problem is Trump will never do anything for anyone because he’s a POS, but now Kim has MAGAts all over her timeline, including Roseanne, lauding her praises for talking to Trump. So, who did this benefit besides Trump? He went ahead and released a racist, a-hole today, good job, Kim.

        Every single thing the Ks do is for there show, PR, and attention. They are not good people, they give the bare minimum to charity, funneled through Kris Jenner’s “church,” aka, tax evasion central. Ugh

    • LittleWing says:

      Seconded. Like I said below the time is the time. Should she sit on the sidelines, while people suffer, until someone else is elected? What if it’s trump again, then what? Good for her for using her fame to engage, despite difficult conditions. I also admire her for speaking out about the Armenian genocide.

  8. Zapp Brannigan says:

    “An overrated reality TV star met with Kim Kardashian ” says it all really.

  9. wheneight says:

    Anyone know who those pictures are of in the Oval? I can’t figure it out. His parents or something? I’m really curious.

    • Christin says:

      The b&w photos are his father and I assume his mother (I have only seen photos of her as an older woman, with flamboyant hair).

      He supposedly only had his dad’s photo on display at first, but added his mother’s later.

  10. smcollins says:

    I’m not a fan of Kim’s in the least, but that NY Post cover is horrible and uncalled for. 99.9% of the time I’m all for mocking her, but not when she seems to be trying to do something good on the behalf of another.

    • Esmom says:

      Eh, I hear you but Trump started the war with the media himself, she had to know she’d probably be part of the collateral damage.

  11. NameChange says:

    I would take Kim more seriously with this if she got people who live and breathe this type of advocacy involved. But the fact is that those people (ACLU, the freedom project, etc.) wouldn’t touch Trump with a 10 foot pole and that should have told her something. Trump has no interest in criminal justice reform; his administration has gone all in on for-profit prisons and “law and order” don’t ya know.

    • Sid says:

      Bingo. This is a photo op for two narcissists. Nothing more. One woman might get pardoned but I am willing to bet money that Trump won’t do a damn thing for prison reform that’s positive.

    • Nicole says:

      Exactly. Let’s not pretend Kim is about that life. She hopped on a bandwagon and because her husband decided to be a “free thinker” and support tr*mps racist self she got a meeting. Big deal.
      Kim is all about the bottom dollar and she’s the first to rob black culture and her husband loves to throw black people under the bus.

      • Kitten says:

        THIS^^^

        I can’t believe people are still falling for her shit.

      • Alisha says:

        Thank you Nicole. It is gross to me that anyone is defending Kim here.

      • Dyanna says:

        Excellent comment. It’s disgusting how trump has lowered the dignity of the white house and the dignity of being president, by letting in a kardashian. They are both Stunt Queens.

      • hogtowngooner says:

        Preach, Nicole. Kim K is always, always about Kim K.

        I feel so bad for people who actually study America’s prison system and have great ideas on reform that would love to have POTUS’ ear. But because they’re not famous, they don’t matter to him.

        America loses when rich white men decide politics is a toy they can play with.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Yes, I totally agree. There are true experts in this area who have been working on the systemic issues with the justice system and its many complexities (the bail system, sentencing and parole, etc.). If she really cared about this issue, you’d think she’d built a team for this effort.

        Trump has no use for experts or facts, so of course he’d have a reality TV star talk to him about the subject.

    • Mariposa says:

      Yes, you’re spot on there. Why didn’t she negotiate for a committment for a pardon before she went and saw him? The deal should have been that he gives the pardon and gets his nice photo shoot, or she doesn’t go. Of course, he wouldn’t agree to that (he probably tried to string her along with false promises, and she was gullible enough to fall for it).

      I do think she is genuinely trying to do the right thing, and she shouldn’t be slammed too much.

    • Artemis says:

      I would take her more seriously if she had the status of a celebrity activist like Jolie. Put in the work first, then I’ll believe you. It doesn’t help that she rarely uses her platform for anything worthwile and chooses to shill dangerous products and values into the world when she has money enough to retire that crap. It also doesn’t help that she can’t spell even if she tried and sounds like an airhead most of the time. And what certainly doesn’t help is co-opting and defending her deplorable husband whose name is not even worth mentioning anymore.

      And last but not least, it’s rich that people believe she has a genuine bone in her body when she JUST went repeatedly after a nonprofit that does more work in 1 day then both KK and her husband in their whole life. If she can’t work or at least financially support grassroot efforts, why the hell should she get the benefit of the doubt when she wants to tackle government policy/law? Please, ‘trying’ is not good enough when the rest of her life is the opposite so I’m not fooled either.

      And then people wonder why this ‘celebrity’ remains relevant? She doesn’t deserve all this praise, at max. she deserves a ‘well done’ sticker and a shuffle out of the door :D

    • sunnydaze says:

      Totally agree. I understand why she’s looking at AMJ and while I appreciate that she’s got this woman on her radar there are many, many people suffering in prisons with far less severe charges. I don’t want to rain on the whole parade, but when I think of prison reform the plight of one person isn’t even on my radar. Not that I don’t care, but because there is such a systemic, disgusting perpetuation of inhuman treatment and vicious cycles stemming from inherently racist policies and pure greed (i.e., privatized prisons). If AMJ is pardoned, that’s terrific for her. But that’s not “reform”, that’s clemency. I don’t know how much good one pardon or two pardons will do for a cause….I think, if actual reform is her goal, highlighting how inhuman solitary confinement is, how people are deprived life saving medications, how violence is rampant and abuse by COs is horrifically common and almost never prosecuted, how education programs have been slashed to pieces and parole/probation often keeps people stuck in the same cycle….I mean, all she’d have to do is share a few John Oliver segments or hell, even Adam Ruins Everything (the prison and drugs episodes are refreshingly accurate).

  12. Snowflake says:

    You guys, I am just laughing my ass off at this. Remember when conservatives had a shit fit when Obama hung out with Jay z and beyonce? How are they going to justify this? Lmao

    • NameChange says:

      They’re fine with it. Just like when he had Kid Rock and Ted Nugent there right after the inauguration. It’s only wrong when Obama does it. Duh…

  13. Eric says:

    Holy hell how far we’ve fallen as a nation.

    I cannot imagine even a clown like Dan Quayle, had he somehow succeeded Bush I as president, would have lowered the standing of the United States in the eyes of the world this much.

    Impeachment soon; barf bag now.

  14. Jenx says:

    It looks like America has jumped the shark.

  15. Skippy says:

    Fake president meets fake actress. Nothing wrong with that.
    😴

  16. grabbyhands says:

    Sorry, the ends justifies the means still is a terrible way to “accomplish” anything.

    Kim uses social advocacy when it suits her and when it will cost her nothing, and what she has done here is further normalize the idea of “well, if it got me what I wanted, then it’s okay”. That’s what started this nightmare to begin with.

    Is she going to now work on prison reform over all or lend her considerable wealth to advocacy groups that try to free anyone who has been wrongly imprisoned? Of course not. It’s hard work and requires maturity and dedication – neither of which are traits she possesses. It will cost him nothing to free this woman, whose name and story he is probably unfamiliar with and wouldn’t care about even if he was. What he and the right see is all of her apparently supremely easy to influence Twitter followers suddenly becoming potential voters because he did that one thing that time and said nice things about Kim who is like, so misunderstood you guys!!! And she is helping legitimize it, so spare me all the pearl clutching about her being misunderstood. Once she gets what she wants, she’ll move on to the next photo op. Well, unless PMK decides to capitalize on how easy it was to manipulate people this time and continues to send her little breadwinner back up to DC for dinner with the Kushners. Because what damage could it do, right???

    45 is not suddenly going to care about wrongly imprisoned people or prison reform. He is an advocate of for profit prisons and always will be.

  17. Indiana Joanna says:

    I thought the photo really creepy and bizarre. An unsmiling Kim in black standing over drump’s shoulder. And he looks really unhinged and pretty much abandoned by everyone. He looks thrilled that he might have at least one friend.

  18. Shannon says:

    I appreciate what she’s trying to do, I honestly do. Unfortunately, I doubt her listened to a word she said – he stared at her tits and salivated over the opportunity to have a photo op with her, like, “Yeah, world, LOOK AT ME, I’M COOL!!!” I get she probably felt the need to take a chance on it, and I think that’s cool. But I don’t trust this man. Time will tell if the work paid off (for her). I hope it did but I have serious doubts.

  19. adastraperaspera says:

    Sentencing reform is desperately needed in the U.S. That said, my question is, how did Kim K. happen to choose Alice Marie Johnson as her cause celebre? And why are the Koch Brothers taking such an interest? See their tweet from yesterday cheerleading this meeting. I think they are funding Ms. Johnson’s lawsuit in some way? At this point, I don’t trust one thing Trump does. I also don’t think it’s a coincidence that Kanye was just visiting Trump either. Something is rotten in Denmark.

    • Swack says:

      Don’t trust Trump either. If he pardons her, he’ll tout it as proof that he is not a .

    • sunnydaze says:

      AMJ moved to the #1 spot on the list of women most deserving of clemency from the Clemency Project Obama launched in 2014. Apparently out of 25 women chosen, only 3 were not given clemency…AMJ was one of them despite glowing recommendations from prison officials, counselors, etc. Where it gets interesting is recent articles discuss her role in passing messages between drug dealers to make ends meet. More historical articles describe a multi-million dollar cocaine trafficking ring, money laundering, and many of the others involved testified against her. Appeals have been rejected and yet she appears to be a more than model inmate. I’ve been trying to figure out how I feel about her case because on one end if she was a first time offender it doesn’t really make sense to let the others involved off with lesser sentences, if any (I don’t know who they were, but I’m going to guess they probably had more of a history than her in the legal system). Apparently her name was attached to dozens of transactions, so it seems like it was more than “passing messages”. Then again, it was Memphis, mid 1990s, and who knows how racism factors in. But then it’s strange all appeals were rejected if it really was as minor as it’s presented…and I keep getting caught in what would be gained by targeting her…

      I’m not trying to find holes in why AMJ should be granted clemency – I think 80% of our prison population should be granted clemency, especially for non-violent drug offenses , but the nitpicker in me is really frustrated I can’t find the original AP article from 1997 detailing her sentencing and charges and almost all articles discuss her activity in 3 sentences or less. Her charges are pretty severe, and I think if we’re talking about prison reform and campaigning so hard for someone it only makes sense to know exactly what the circumstances were. Again, I’m not against her clemency, and I truly hope she gets it, I just know there are thousands of other people with far less charges in horrific prison conditions I wish could have the same publicity. AMJ, being in a federal facility, is in far better shape than some of the women in state facilities, particularly in the south.

  20. Eric says:

    Dear Kim:
    Never forget great words from American statesmen.
    “Ask not what your country can do…” JFK
    “Today is a day that will live …” FDR
    “….moved on her like a bitch….I just start kissing them…grab them by the pussy…” EZ

  21. lightpurple says:

    Sorry but I just cannot. Yes, I give Kim Kardashian credit for seeking a pardon for a woman serving an unjust sentence but she is allowing this to be portrayed as something else entirely. A pardon for one woman, or even for others in similar straits, is NOT prison reform. But Kim is allowing herself to be portrayed as participating in a discussion of prison reform. That’s just wrong and she should speak up and correct it.

  22. Jenns says:

    1. That NY Post cover is gross.
    2. I’m not going to poop on Kim for this. I see all the hate on her in these comments, but trust me, she is smarter than Trump and we need prison reform. Plus, he’s more likely to listen to her than any of his advisors.
    3. Look at Trump’s stupid face. He LOVES celebrities so much.

  23. Ozogirl says:

    These two would be the last people I’d ever want helping me…

  24. LittleWing says:

    I love that kim gives a damn and she’s in there, trying to make a difference. The time is the time.

  25. Cher says:

    I hope she checked in on Melania…

  26. Rapunzel says:

    This morning, Bigley tweeted that he’s going to give a full pardon to Dinesh D’Souza. He only pardons people who do him favors or share his racist views. Kim probably wasted her time. And hurt her brand. For nothing.

    • brutalethyl says:

      Awesome! Im glad D’Souza is getting pardoned. He was a political target.

    • KiddV says:

      He’s pardoning people who are guilty of what he’s accused of doing (Illegal campaign donations, conspiracy, obstruction of justice, pay to play, etc) as a message to Cohen to not turn on him, that he’ll be pardoned if he pleads guilty.

      I hope Martha Stewart tells him to FO. She’d lose street cred and Snoop Dogg (I’m sort of joking about that)

  27. Tania says:

    If you want to talk justice reform/prison reform, then follow Shaun King and his movement. It really makes a lot of sense to get district attorneys who understand the system is for profit and not for justice.

    Do you save one person or entire people? One person is a photo op, an entire country is a movement.

    KK is out of her depth and this is just a photo op. Can you imagine what happens if AMJ is released? Will there be a makeover and an entire KUWK season dedicated to how Kim saved this woman? Ugh.

    • LittleWing says:

      I don’t feel it’s either/or. I can choose to admire her action in this instance and follow shaun, which I do.

  28. The Original G says:

    Kudos to her for making the effort here. Hope it turns out well. The end.

  29. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Idiocracy. That pic says it all. Barf to the twentieth.

  30. B n A fn says:

    The first thing I noticed about their photo Op was, his desk was as clean as a whistle. Some summit. Let’s see how it turns out.

    OT:
    Where is his wife. BE FREE.

  31. me says:

    If she cares so much about helping people, why not help the kids from the Donda Foundation that her and Kanye neglected? I guess that wouldn’t have as big a photo op as this. Kim just doesn’t seem genuine…sorry. I just hope the woman she is trying to help actually gets help.

  32. Janie says:

    Only in America!

  33. madonami says:

    And today he promptly pardons……a vile racist.

  34. Ladykeller says:

    I have multiple issues with Kim K but she does impress me with things like this. She uses her voice and her platform for noble causes from time to time. She can garner a lot of attention that other individuals or causes could never hope for on their own. Now if she could just do something about her husband…..

  35. Mina says:

    Isn’t Trump like the worst President you could ask for pardons for inmates? He’s all for harsher sentences for criminals. I do like to see Kim trying to use her celebrity for a cause, though.

  36. madonami says:

    Also, I don’t get it. I mean, I don’t get roughly 2015 through now, but I don’t get him wanting a pic with her? I thought the MAGAs were all about We Hate Celebrities. Which, yeah, I know is more like jelly bs that they can’t get Beyonce or whatever, but I still don’t get it. Kim K? Why would he think the MAGAs would eat that up? Or I guess maybe it’s just that HE eats it up b/c he’s him, and the MAGAs will eat up whatever he tells them to, no matter how little it makes any damn sense?

    Also, he looks, per usual, like a massive jack*ass, sitting there grinning like an idiot while Kim has the wits to not be photographed smiling next to him. I remember a time when a president would not particularly want to be photographed with a Kardashian.

    She has apparently (?) sort of known him for a long time. I guess she and Paris and co. ran with the Dumps in the same D-list reality TV circles for a while?

    Also, people used to – and some still do probably – call Kanye a genius. I think Kim is smarter than Kanye. And he doesn’t seem to treat her very well. She should kick his arse to the curb. I wonder what that marriage really is.

    p.s. threadjack a bit – - Good thing we are starting trade wars. And with ALLIES. I sincerely hope that these tariffs f*ck every single possible Trump voter they can.

  37. Dr Mrs The Monarch says:

    The headlines are gross but the picture really says it all. He is sitting on his massive behind grinning and she is standing and frowning and it looks like she just arrived and hadn’t even set her purse down to get the “Bigly Hand-clench”.

    No gentleman stood to greet her or to offer her a seat. No gentleman asked her to put her bag down and make herself comfortable. Just “go stand there for the photo”.

    She might as well be a tourist on a White house tour getting a souvenir photo with a cardboard cut out. But at least corrugated cardboard has a few millimeters of depth.

  38. Beer&Crumpets says:

    I feel so *weird* about this, on so many levels. I mean, yay for prison reform. Yay for a Kardashian not being totally vapid and/or useless. But… it’s Trump, y’all. He doesn’t give a fuck all day about anything having to do with, like, justice or fairness. It’s not like he would listen to her (or anyone ever) even if she had the most well researched, well spoken, thought-provoking argument for prison reform that any living being on any planet anywhere in the Universe had ever heard. God could materialize in front of Trump to communicate with him directly, and if God said anything that Trump didn’t like, you best believe that he would barf something out on Twitter calling The Actual Almighty Creator “fake” or some such shit.

    It’s TRUMP. He’s CRAZY and TERRIBLE. Nothing good comes from anything he’s part if or in charge of. So I guess… I mean, it’s cool that Kim Kardashian had her platform, but it won’t amount to a fucking thing because her platform was in front of TRUMP. IT WAS TRUMP.

    Then she goes to dinner at Princess Complicit’s house afterwards…..

    What reform do you think THOSE TWO discussed????

    I heard a lot of “at least she’s doing something” hot takes yesterday and I’m not giving someone credit in 2018 for using an issue to propel their own image when they could be empowering other voices that know more and wouldn’t typically be allowed in the room.

    The headline is gross, but 2 years into the presidency of DJT, I’ve stopped caring about when bad things happen to bad people and I’ve never felt freer.

    Great to see all of Kim’s hard work paying off! DJT is going to pardon someone brown and a woman! Wait…it’s Dnesh Dzousa (campaign finance fraud) and Martha Stewart (insider trading). Good job, Kim! Those Donda’s House kids are reallllly looking forward to you and your toddlers taking over! Maybe they’ll get real Yeezys!

      Your seething sarcasm is so appreciated right now. Everything you said, though.

      Heavy. Sigh.

    • LittleWing says:

      Yeah, thx for bringing donda West fdn into this to undermine them even more. I guess that was the intention tho. Good job.

        They abandoned Dondas House, Kanyes mothers legacy. The fact that what was said here is true is only the fault of K&K, they undermined themselves. I’m sure the youth of Chicago appreciate that Kanye abandoned his responsibilities so he could buy a forty million dollar house, and then spend millions remodeling it into a mausoleum his family can’t even live in. One tweet from either of them, with all of their followers, would have cost them nothing and done so much for those kids, yet they couldn’t even do that!

        @ slightlyannony! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

    Trump will pardon her for the optics, a black woman and because Obama, a black Democrat president, passed on pardoning her in 2016. He despises Obama. That’s what will drive him, the digs he will be able to tweet, the gloating, and patting himself on the back. It will have zero to do with compassion or empathy.

    That picture just looks like something from SNL. Trump in the Oval Office, Kim standing next to him acting as First Lady. Had this picture come out 5 years ago we’d all be laughing at how bizarre it would be to have both in the Oval Office. Anything is possible now.

    • rabbitgirl says:

      It’s… there are no words… a porn star and a guy who pays off porn stars pose inside the oval office. It’s the cover the worst porn movie ever made. It’s horrible. My eyes!!!

    She did this to protect her “brand” after the Kanye fiasco. I’m not saying she doesn’t believe in this cause, I”m saying she wouldn’t lift a finger if she and Kanye weren’t in need of image rehab. And yes, she got played. Trump only cares about himself and keeping his racist base happy so he that can stay in power. If he shocks us and does pardon this woman, then yeah, the ends justify the means. But I stand by my comment that Kim is doing this for herself and her brand more than anything.

    To see these two in the White House makes me want to vomit for a week.
    I just feel hopeless. I feel like becoming a hermit. Please let this all be just a bad dream.

  46. rabbitgirl says:

    That picture right there illustrates perfectly that we are in hell. That picture is seriously the equivalent of “let them eat cake” IMHO. It should be the reason to storm the Bastile.
