So...it's BAD that Alice Johnson is free and that Kim Kardashian cared and that President Trump listened???— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) June 12, 2018
Open your mind. It takes a village to undo #wrongfulconvictions - and that means reaching across the aisle. I've seen it happen firsthand and it is how change happens. https://t.co/7JSrnDyxw7
How wonderful is it that @KimKardashian was able to bring Alice Johnson's case to the Prez , which led to her release from prison..in life, you never know who will change your life.... in that moment, Kim was Alice's destiny changer/connector..— MS. VA PLUS USA 2012 (@msvaplus2012) June 14, 2018
