With his sense of drama and his history on television, it's clear the job Donald Trump is best suited for is goony talk show host instead of oh say, leader of the free world. This kind of strange streak in his personality resulted in the surreal and unlikely meeting between him and reality show star Kim Kardashian-West. However, Kim Kardashian West came prepared, as she discussed prison reform with the president, and specifically the case of Alice Marie-Johnson, a first time drug offender who was given the impossibly harsh penalty of life in prison without parole. You can read more about the case and the meeting here. Here to discuss this odd meeting are our hosts, Ryan Mitchell, Shira Lazar and Martine Beerman.
So what does this trio have to say about the meeting between the president and Kim Kardashian ? Ryan thinks it's a good thing she's trying to figure something out with prison reform, but Ryan hopes she brings someone with her who knows what they're talking about, so the correct conversations can be had. Morgan however believes that, given the audience of celebrity weirdo Donald Trump, it could actually be done. Ryan is still unsure about it though, given that she isn't an expert on this or the black experience, and other people maybe should discuss these things. Martine responds: "those people aren’t putting their foot in the door. A lot of people are living life sentences, 120 years, for drug trafficking with weed, and if Kim Kardashian has to talk to Trump [on his level]", then maybe that is what it takes.
