"I'm naked, and my phone rings": Kim Kardashian reveals the moment Trump called her to tell her about Alice Johnson
Kim Kardashian was one of the first to find out that President Donald Trump had granted Alice Marie Johnson clemency
Kim Kardashian got candid about the meeting with POTUS Donald Trump at the White House which took place in May. She spoke about how she was amazed and in awe by the magnitude of the meeting and the impact of being in the Oval Office.
During an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, the 'Keeping Up with The Kardashians' star said, "I look around and I'm kinda starstruck by the Oval Office. And the first thing I say in our meeting, I say, 'Holy s**t! We're in the f**king Oval Office'". The mother of three had met Donald Trump to ask him to grant clemency to Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old inmate who was serving life without parole for a first-time, non-violent, drug offense.
Just less than a week later, Donald Trump signed the papers to make the clemency official. Kim was one of the first ones to hear about the good news and she heard it from the president himself. "He called me. I was at a Steven Klein photoshoot. And if anyone knows who he is, it's pretty much a nude shoot. So, I'm naked, and my phone rings and I'm all glammed up," Kim recalled. She also added that she had to scramble around for a robe and get her phone as the shoot was setting up.
Kimmel said, "So you were naked when Donald Trump called you?" and Kim quickly clarified,"I put a robe on. I was in a robe. And I was kind of bugging out during the shoot". Immediately after speaking to the president, Kim dialed up the prison where Johnson had been serving out her sentence to share the exciting news.
"I didn't know that I was the first person telling her. So I broke the news to her, and [she] was just crying. And I was at this photo shoot, just trying not to cry my makeup off. It was really emotional," Kim revealed. She also told Kimmel that she was "very grateful" to president Trump for meeting with her and she is "very hopeful that more good things are going to come out of our conversations".
Kim also opened up her husband Kanye's support for president Trump which has been heavily criticized in the past. Kimmel asked Kim if Kanye was still a fan of Trump to which she hesitantly responded, "Yeah, I think he really… he really… uh, yeah". She went on to clarify that her husband "doesn't necessarily agree with the policies" of Trump's administration but rather appreciates his "personality".
