Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got schooled by reality star Kim Kardashian when they faced off in a quiz about their legal knowledge.
In an episode of Hillary and Chelsea Clinton’s new Apple TV+ docuseries “Gutsy,” former law firm partner, Clinton, and recent law school student, Kardashian were tested by Chelsea on legalese, and the former first lady lost by 11-4.
“I think Kim has an unfair advantage,” Hillary complained, while Chelsea conceded that “Kim has studied more recently than you.”
The Clintons said that they challenged Kardashian to a legal quiz because “We didn’t interview her about fashion … her many lines of commerce … her personal life. We interviewed about what she was doing to help get people who were unjustly or unfairly incarcerated have a second chance.”
In April, the reality star implored Texas Governor Greg Abbott to halt the execution of Melissa Lucio, a mother who was convicted of capital murder for beating her two-year-old toddler to death in 2007. She was granted a stay of execution later that month.
Chelsea praised Kardashian for being “self-aware that her celebrity can make a difference positively,” adding that “she never wants to make a negative difference, so being judicious and thoughtful about when and where and how she engages was really impressive to us. I want, even beyond this series, to do whatever I can to help her in that work.”
The former Obama administration official admitted to People that the legal trivia loss to the Skims founder was “heartbreaking.”
Kardashian recently made headlines when one of the “grandpa robbers” that held her at gunpoint while they stole $10 million in jewelry from her during Paris Fashion Week in 2016, said he has no remorse after serving 22-months for the crime.
“Since she was throwing money away, I was there to collect it, and that was that,” remarked Yunis Abbas who robbed her in a hotel room with four other men dressed as police officers. “They should be a little less showy towards people who can’t afford it. For some people, it’s provocative.”
