Kim Kardashian appeared on last night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk with the late night host about her relationship with Donald Trump, revealing how she was participating in a nude photoshoot when she found out that her campaign to free Alice Marie Johnson from prison had been successful.
Kardashian revealed she’d discovered Johnson’s plight via Twitter — Johnson had been serving a life sentence for a non-violent drug crime — and felt a “connection,” so she decided to do something about it. “Do you have a list now of people you might ask him to release from prison?” Kimmel asked, before quipping, “Is Melania on it? That would be nice.”
Refusing to rise to the bait, Kardashian did not partake in jokes about the President’s wife needing to be “freed.” Rather, she continued to talk about where she was when Trump called to deliver the result of Johnson’s case — a nude, Steven Klein photoshoot. “Did the president know you were just in a robe and nothing else?” Kimmel asked. “He probably would have released the whole prison if you’d told him.”
While on the topic of Trump, Kimmel asked Kardashian how she feels about husband Kanye West’s relationship with POTUS. ‘To make it clear … he doesn’t necessarily agree with the policies. He likes his personality and how he made it to be President when everyone really underestimated him.”
