President Donald Trump hosted fellow reality TV star Kim Kardashian for a White House meeting to discuss prison reform, and social media users reacted to the latest surreal spectacle.
The president tweeted a photo of himself and Kardashian, who he’s insulted for years from his prolific social media account, after the meeting to discuss prison and sentencing.
Kardashian met with Trump and Jared Kushner to lobby the president to grant clemency to Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old grandmother currently serving life without parole for a nonviolent drug crime, her first offense.
