Meghan McCain tried to shame celebrity Kim Kardashian for working with Pres. Trump on Prison and justice reform but the Hollywood megastar didn’t subscribe to the direction of hate.
Kardashian told McCain and the rest of the women on The View that she wasn’t concerned about her reputation if she could get results from her hard work.
McCain: “Were you worried about any backlash you were going to get because you did this bill with President Trump?”
Kardashian: “For me, any of my issues have always been more about the people and not about the politics, and so for me to think that I couldn’t go and speak to the man that has the power to change people’s lives because of some opinions I may have of certain policies and issues, to me felt very self-centered,”
“I put that all out the door, and I thought, you know what? I’m going to choose her over my reputation”
Kardashian was referring to her work with Pres. Trump to get Alice Marie Johnson released from prison after her sentence was commuted in 2018. Kim further pushed for Trump and Congress to pass the First Step Act, which overhauled criminal prison sentences and allowed thousands of inmates to be released from prison.
McCain: “He tends to listen to celebrities, so the fact that you are doing it I think is a great help to so many people because he loves celebrities”
Kardashian: “I felt like I had open opportunity to do that, and from the president going from being really harsh on his stance on prison reform to changing and actually signing the First Step Act and getting that bill passed, was amazing”
