Kim Kardashian meets Alice Marie Johnson, teaches her about Snapchat

Grateful for the compassion After learning of Johnson's commutation last Wednesday June 6 the star tweeted her reaction writing'Best news ever!!!! So grateful to @realDonaldTrump Jared Kushner & to everyone who has showed compassion and contributed

On Wednesday, Kardashian and a newly freed Johnson met for the first time.

"We had a really great conversation about women and wanting to help each other, and I knew that she would've understood Alice", Kardashian West said.

"I hope maybe this inspires more people to talk to the people in power that you can have an effect over them for the greater good of other people", Kardashian West said in an interview alongside Johnson with NBC News' "Today" show.

Two weeks after petitioning President Trump to commute the sentence of Alice Johnson and a week after he did just that, Kim Kardashian is finally meeting the woman whose freedom she helped to secure when the two came face to face for their first joint interview.

Kardashian met Trump in the Oval Office to make her pitch to get Johnson released.

Kardashian, who has been working on behalf of the grandma for months, was the first person to tell the nonviolent drug offender about her commutation back on June 6 but this will be the duo's first in person encounter. I was dancing, I was doing everything'. Can we, you know, hire different attorneys?

Responding to the decision to grant clemency, Kim tweeted: "BEST NEWS EVER".


"To me this has nothing to do with politics, this has to do with people", she said.

"Thank you is not big enough", Johnson said. Are you ready to go home?' When she said that, I went into full-fledged Pentecostal holy dance!

Johnson, for her part, said she had no idea who Kardashian West was when she first learned the celebrity was helping her case. "I have to live it out for her", she added.

Johnson, 63, mirrored the sentiment, explaining, "I plan on continuing to magnify this issue".

The President's daughter connected Kardashian with her husband, Jared Kushner, who took an interest in Johnson's case, according to Kardashian West. "This has fulfilled my heart and since I feel so fulfilled, why would I stop that?" "I can't stop", she said.

Alice had already served more than 20 years in prison on drug conspiracy and money laundering charges. "I started reading everything that I could about her and everyone was amazed and I was amazed too".
