Kim Kardashian Refuses to Badmouth Trump on Letterman

In an interview with David Letterman, the talk show host couldn’t goad Kim Kardashian into speaking ill of the President.

On his Netflix series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star discussed her involvement with criminal justice reform.  

Kardashian made headlines in 2018 when she visited the White House to persuade the President to commute the sentence of Alice Johnson, who was serving life in prison for a non-violent drug crime.  

“Hopefully, for the next multiple administrations, I’ll be working with the White House, helping them with clemencies,” she said.  

When Letterman asked how she felt about working with the President, despite criticism from liberal celebrities, including himself, she said she had received plenty of warnings against working with Trump. “Trust me, everyone called me and said, ‘Don’t you dare step foot in that White House or your reputation is done.’”

Letterman repeatedly tried to get Kardashian to take a political stance, but the superstar whose husband Kanye West is running in the election, refused to pick a side by simply stating, “I know who I’m voting for.”

When he said, “I’m grateful for what you’re doing, but it doesn’t make me feel any better about the current administration,” she responded with “I understand that.”

Letterman commented on the President’s behavior tarnishing her good deeds, “But see, your good work is overwhelming,” he said. “It’s a positive force that diminishes what I consider to be unacceptable behavior by the president.”

Kardashian humbly responded that she is “extremely grateful” the administration decided to work with her on justice reform, an issue close to her heart. 

Earlier this year, she produced a documentary for Oxygen, Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project, which advocated for the early release of convicted felons. She is currently studying to be a lawyer and participating in a legal apprenticeship program.

Letterman is just another wanting to be famous and the only way it works for him is to bash President Trump. I applaud her for not caving in to his stupid discourse.

Btw, that is how adults act, and I am not referring to Letterman. It just exposes the ideology even further because if they accomplish something it doesn’t matter, all that matters is the attainment of the power over the masses, doing something that helps the masses can actually be considered bad if it is done for the “political gain” of the rival. Liberalism is a mental disorder and those that have the disorder are not the ones that usually understand they have something wrong with them. If the same act of justice reform had been done under the Obama administration it would be lauded for decades, because it was Trump it is nothing, meanwhile Kim Kardashian did the heavy lifting but gets less credit because she did it with an open-minded person the left does not like. The results are what matter but not to a liberal, they do not look at results but intention, that is why a 50 year war on poverty where the poverty level is the same as it was when the war started is unimportant, the fact that they meant well is all that matters. It is a sickness that damages all of our society from the output it creates.

Go Kim go! I agree with her stance on criminal justice reform. Women tend to get awfully harsh sentence compared to men. And frankly, using “discretion” in sentencing either needs to be changed or eliminated. And God bless the fact that she has grown as a person and have seen the light. And thank God she refuses to “trash” President Trump!

You go Kim. I have respect for anyone who won’t trash our President. In other country’s talking about our President the way people have done with President Trump they would be shot. In all my life I have not seen any President go through the kind of crap Trump has. Obama didn’t have people treat him like that. And look at all the shit he did to our country. Was not good. President Trump has done more than any President has or will ever do for this country. And sometimes I think people voting for Biden are walking around with blinders on or there watching way different news than I watch. I guess they want to live in concentration camps. I’ve seen the concentration camps in Germany when I worked for the military for 8 yrs. over there not a pretty site. Our people just don’t know when they have it good. I also seen how the people in East Germany had to live if these people only knew what life could be like maybe they would shut there mouths and get on with life.

Just look at him. He looks homeless. You know he’s off his rocker. No one wants to look that un-groomed. He’s senile just like Biden. No wonder that’s who he is voting for.
