Donald Trump just loves to brag about all the famous “friends” he has. If a semi-famous person talks to him, it makes him feel like the most special little boy in the world. He brags about it, posts pics, and floats around like he’s on cloud nine. Well today he got to meet with reality television royalty when Kim Kardashian stopped by the Oval office to discuss prison reform and a pardon for a woman named Alice Marie Johnson.

Prison reform is something that really needs to happen sooner, rather than later. On the one hand we need to close private prisons, and on the other hand we’re facing a system that is so much harsher on people of color. Something really does need to change as soon as possible.
Vanity Fair reported that Kardashian and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner had been discussing Alice Marie Johnson’s potential pardon for several months. Johnson is serving a life sentence without the possibility for parole for a first time, non-violent drug offense. Kardashian saw her story on Mic and has been fighting for her ever since. She’s expected to ask Trump to pardon the woman. Which Trump will probably do considering Kardashian is one of the most famous people on the planet.

Trump would probably pardon a serial killer if only a famous enough person would ask him. He loves to place himself in the spotlight whenever possible and he doesn’t care if it’s a good spotlight or a bad one. Today’s spotlight is a good one. With the stroke of a pen he could right a wrong that’s been perpetrated on someone who committed their first offense. Luckily she has a very famous person fighting for her, so she just might stand a chance. Plus there would be an upside if Kardashian and Trump could get some prison reform going…it would make the prison system better for Trump and his crime family after they start serving their prison sentences.
