Kim Kardashian slammed for White House picture of her lounging on a table: 'Classy on the table just like TRUMP LIKES IT'
Many didn't take kindly to the pictures that Kim put up on social media about her recent visit to meet President Trump, with one saying, "If you want to be taken seriously studying law don’t be lying on the table posing."
Reality television star Kim Kardashian's most recent trip to the White House trip is already causing a stir on social media, and it's not because of the social cause she is championing, but for the pictures of the visist she posted on social media.
Kardashian, on June 13, went to the White House to give a speech on her newfound passion for criminal justice reform. President Donald Trump, during the celebrity's visit, also cited her advocacy in helping pass the First Step Act, which includes provisions for incarcerated people, according to reports.
"I’d like to invite up a very special guest, and a powerful advocate for not only justice reform, but just a good person and I hear she’s starting to study law, she’s also one of the most successful people in the entertainment business, soon she’ll be one of the most successful lawyers," Trump said at the event. "But I knew her father and I’ll tell you, she’s got good genes — good genes for everything. She’s been a real friend and her husband has been a real friend of mine."
Almost two weeks after her trip to Washington DC, Kardashian shared some pictures from the day of the event on Instagram, including one where she can be seen giving her speech as President Trump watches. Another picture shared by her includes sitting next to first daughter Ivanka Trump in a teal pantsuit.
However, there was one particular picture, which drew criticism from people online, where she is seen striking a pose while sprawled out on a tabletop, flanked by her attorneys Erin Haney and Jessica Jackson. It is not clear whether the picture was taken at the White House or not.
While her sisters, Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian, cheered their "boss sister" over the pictures, there were other followers who appeared annoyed by the aspiring lawyer.
One social media user commented: "Why are you on the table?" While another said: "If you want to be taken seriously studying law don’t be lying on the table posing."
“Classy on the table just like TRUMP LIKES IT,” someone joked. “It’s unnecessary to sit on the table while advocating for the most marginalized people in America,” added a commenter. “How many doctors and lawyers you know sit on the table the way Kim did. I am sure her dad wouldn’t.”
While there were others who slammed the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star for aligning with Trump amid reports of the treatment of migrant children in detention centers along the border.
"I’m a fan, but how can you stand and sit next to people that are keeping young children and babies in holding camps? How?” a fan asked. "[F***] Trump I’m unfollowing you," another follower threatened.
“Should’ve kept the [photo] of Donald Trump to yourself,” another user commented. “I am so happy that you can do this to help people transition!” someone posted. “Have you ever thought about advocating for the kids who are in the immigration camps?”
However, there were several other followers who praised her work on American prisoners. Kardashian, at the White House event, had gone to announce a new ride-sharing partnership with Lyft, which will assist former prisoners to get transportation to job interviews and work shifts, according to reports.
