The one thing Kim Kardashian likes about Kanye West’s support of Trump
Most notably, she believes Alice Marie Johnson ― the 63-year-old nonviolent first-time drug offender Trump granted clemency to after Kardashian visited the White House ― would still be in prison if West wasn’t such a fierce defender of the president.
“I do believe she would still be in prison,” Kardashian told Baldwin. “Alice and I spoke about this. We spoke on the phone yesterday, and we’ve spoken about this a few times. Alice always says, ‘If it wasn’t for Kanye speaking up in support of Trump’ then she would still be in jail.”
Though the “KUWTK” star said she’ll continue to advocate for criminal justice reform, overall, she’s far less political than her husband.
“I wasn’t really into politics as much until, I think, more recently,” she said. “And even so, I’m not so into politics. I’ll find something that I believe in, and I figured out how to use my voice in that area, but as far as when it does come to my business, to me, it’s all very separate.”
Kardashian has defended her husband’s controversial political leanings before. In April, she defended West’s right to support Trump, while distancing herself from his politics.
“Most people (including myself) have very different feelings & opinions about this. But this is HIS opinion,” she said. “I believe in people being able to have their own opinions, even if really different from mine.”
