Kim Kardashian is continuing her political run by meeting Donald Trump in the name of prison reform once again.
TMZ reports Kardashian arrived at the White House this morning after taking a late night flight to Washington D.C. last night. She traveled to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. to discuss her political ideals and hope that Trump will hear her plea for another person who was sentenced to life in prison for drug-related charges.
Kim K is lobbying for the release of a man named Chris Young, a 30-year-old prisoner who’s serving a life sentence in Tennessee for cocaine and marijuana possession. Young has served just under 10 years of his sentence, but prays he doesn’t have to do 10 more if things go his way.
While the Hollywood socialite was focused on her conversation with Trump, he was surprisingly not the only official in the room. Attendees included Jared Kushner, son-in-law and senior advisor to Donald Trump; Van Jones, political commentator and author; and Judge Kevin Sharp, who sentenced Young to prison.
Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley addressed Kim’s visit, saying, “Today at the White House, members of the Administration are hosting a listening session about the clemency process. The discussion is mainly focused on ways to improve that process to ensure deserving cases receive a fair review.”
Before taking a trip to the House, Kardashian spoke as a guest on Jason Flom’s “Wrongful Conviction” podcast. There she spoke about conversations with Young and her promise to fight for his freedom.
