Despite attempts by David Letterman to get her to bash President Donald Trump, Kim Kardashian reportedly declined to do so and instead expressed gratitude for the administration’s implementation of criminal justice sentencing reform.
Trump foe Letterman interviewed Kardashian, the spouse of presidential candidate Kanye West, on a wide range of topics in the first episode of his Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, which drops on October 21. The content of the show generally consists of liberal Letterman pandering to the egos of various celebrities.
Kardashian famously met with Trump in the White House Oval Office in May 2018 as a proponent for the release of Alice Marie Johnson, who was serving a life sentence for drug trafficking-related offenses, a term of imprisonment that many believed was unjust and disproportionate. Trump subsequently commuted the sentence of Johnson (and later pardoned her), who was one of the featured speakers at the Republican National Convention in August. . .
“Hopefully, for the next multiple administrations, I’ll be working with the White House, helping them with clemencies,” Kardashian told Dave in the spirt of non-partisanship.
Recalling the reaction among left-wing Hollywood celebrities about potentially meeting with Trump on a good cause was wholly negative, Kardashian revealed that ”Trust me, everyone called me and said, ‘Don’t you dare step foot in that White House or your reputation is done.’ And I said, ‘I have to step foot in there or these people’s lives don’t have a chance.’” (Read more from “‘Your Reputation Is Done’: Kim Kardashian Declines to Trash President Trump on Talk Show” HERE)
