A scene from my nightmares will unfold in our nation’s capital on Wednesday: Kim
Kardashian and Donald Trump will meet in the White House, thanks to “months” of
back-channel talks between the princess of Calabasas and Jared Kushner.

Sources told Vanity Fair that Kardashian will reportedly ask the president to
pardon Alice Johnson, a 62-year-old woman who has been in prison for over 20
years, serving a life sentence for a first-time drug offense. Kardashian
reportedly heard about Johnson on Twitter and reached out to Ivanka Trump, who
get Kardashian in touch with her hollow-eyed husband.

The Trump administration, with Attorney General Jeff Sessions taking the lead,
is rapidly unwinding years of criminal justice reform and resurrecting the drug
war, but Trump has shown himself, predictably, to be open to high-profile acts
of mercy that will generate good press. While progress on Johnson’s case is
unquestionably a positive thing, it’s clear that Trump is considering it because
the people making the appeal are famous.

More from Vanity Fair:

"Kardashian’s plea, and Kushner’s push for reform, are at odds with the Trump
administration’s own policies. In one of his first moves as attorney general,
Jeff Sessions rescinded an Obama-era memo that increased leniency for low-level
drug offenders, instructing federal prosecutors to bring punitive charges that
could trigger precisely the sort of tough mandatory sentencing that condemned
Johnson to life without parole.

"The president, however, has proven amenable to personal entreaties—especially
when celebrities are involved. Last week, Trump hosted Sylvester Stallone,
Lennox Lewis,and Deontay Wilder in the Oval Office, as they asked him to pardon
Jack Johnson, the legendary boxer who, in 1913, was convicted of violating the
Mann Act, which made it illegal to transport women across state lines for the
purpose of prostitution or any other “immoral” reason. Johnson, who was widely
believed to be convicted because he was black, served a year in prison. After
Trump agreed to pardon Johnson, he said in a statement that he was pleased to be
able to “correct a wrong that occurred in our history,” before throwing in a jab
to his predecessor. “They thought it was going to be signed in the last
administration, and that didn’t happen.”

Trump and Kardashian will meet in the Oval Office alone—her husband, Kanye West,
her sisters, and the Keeping Up With the Kardashians camera crew will not join
her this time around. Instead, Kim Kardashian will appeal to the president about
prison reform alone and likely, she will get what she wants.

In Trump’s America, a person wrongfully imprisoned can be granted release, if
they happen to find themselves with a celebrity advocate.

Mmmmm...Abu-Jamal's death sentence over-turned on a technicality but he's still
serving a life sentence in a state (Penn) that only had three executions in 40
years.

...take your white-power goose stepping somewhere else, TrumpBoy!
