Kim Kardashian West met with President Trump Wednesday to discuss prison reform, with the ultimate goal of having POTUS pardon 63-year-old grandmother Alice Marie Johnson -- who is currently serving a life sentence [without the possibility of parole] for her first, non-violent drug offense. She has already spent 21 years in prison.
Happy Birthday Alice Marie Johnson. Today is for you 🙏🏼✨— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) May 30, 2018

According to reports, Johnson's lawyer is "cautiously optimistic" that she'll be granted clemency after the meeting, as just last week Trump pardoned the late Jack Johnson at the urging of Sylvester Stalone.

I would like to thank President Trump for his time this afternoon. It is our hope that the President will grant clemency to Ms. Alice Marie Johnson who is serving a life sentence for a first-time, non-violent drug offense.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) May 31, 2018
We are optimistic about Ms. Johnson’s future and hopeful that she —and so many like her—will get a second chance at life.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) May 31, 2018
I feel like kim kardashian can’t do anything without mass criticism and backlash. She’s literally doing a GOOD thing and yet all people are talking about is either her arse or her sextape. what the fuck is wrong yall?— KT ✨🏳️🌈 (@delreykt) May 31, 2018
People bitch about @KimKardashian for posing nude as a mother and now she’s going to the White House to talk about prison reform and people are dragging her for that.— Anthony (@anthonygonnn) May 30, 2018
Leave the girl alone and let her use her platform for good. Jesus fuck.
Lots of people are hating on Kim Kardashian for going to the White House to talk about prison reform. Lots of people also routinely hate on her for not using her celebrity to bring attention to benevolent causes.— John Haltiwanger (@jchaltiwanger) May 30, 2018
Damned if she do, damned if she don't.
