Donald Trump Praises Kim Kardashian and Kanye West at Republican Fundraiser
President Donald Trump is singing Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s praises.
According to E! News, the U.S. president talked about the couple during a fundraising dinner for the Ohio Republican Party in Columbus on Friday. “Now we’re doing great and Kanye West liked me and that really lifted my- Kanye West has some real power!” said Trump, adding, “He’s got a good wife too, in Kim, I’ll tell ya. She really is.”
Then he went on to speak about how Kim influenced his decision to commute Alice Johnson’s sentence. “She did a great thing. She did a great thing,” said Trump of Kim’s advocacy. “The person was in jail on a very strange thing. She was there for 22 years and it was based largely on a phone call that they were listening to and she had another 24 years, she was about 62 or 63 and I gave her a pardon.
The president continued, “And she came out of that jail after all of those years and the way she hugged and kissed her family and the way they loved her so much. She had some grandchildren, some sons, some grandchildren that were so beautiful, they were grabbing her and it was just a beautiful thing to see, and she was in there for 22 years and that was through Kim Kardashian, so I think it was terrific. I don’t know if you saw that. Did you see that? The scene of her coming out of that jail. That was pretty, pretty good.”
This comes a month after Kim revealed that she was naked when Trump called to speak about Alice Johnson.
“He called me. I was at a Steven Klein photo shoot—and if anyone knows who he is, it’s pretty much a nude shoot. So, I’m naked and my phone rings and I’m all glammed up. I’m like, ‘Get me a robe!’ I was waiting for the call, not knowing when it was going to come—or even if it was it.”She continued, “I put a robe on and I was kind of bugging out during the shoot because I’m like, ‘Oh, my God, all these amazing things are happening.’ I’m still going to be me. I’m doing the shoot and I’m like, ‘What do I do? Do I do this nude shoot? Don’t I do this nude shoot? And…I did it.”
