President Donald Trump hosted a criminal justice reform event in the White House today, featuring voluptuous reality TV star Kim Kardashian as one of the guests of honor.
“It’s really is such an honor to be here,” Kardashian said after Trump introduced her as a “great friend” to a standing ovation from attendees.
“I’d gotten to the place in in my life where I wanted to make a difference. I wanted to do the right thing,” she said.
Kardashian started visiting prisoners throughout the country, and she began to advocate on their behalf. Because of President Trump, she hit a breakthrough and is seeing serious results to her activism.
“My heart just completely opened up and I wanted to do more. So, I started studying law,” she said.
The reality TV star has recruited the ride-share company, Lyft, to help inmates arrive at job interviews after they leave prison so they aren’t disenfranchised.
“I’m so happy to announce today we have a ride share partnership where formerly incarcerated people will be gifted gift cards,” she said.
She gives full credit to DJT for being the man who made all of this happen.
“I just wanted to thank the president for standing behind this issue,” she said.
“I think she’s pretty popular,” Trump retorted after she finished speaking and left the podium.

Kardashian sat next to the President’s daughter and senior adviser, Ivanka Trump, and her husband, senior adviser Jared Kushner during the proceedings.
Trump and Kardashian were also joined at the event by Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, the Republican leader who has made criminal justice reform a major tenet of his administration.
“It saves taxpayers money because we incarcerate less people,” Lee said of criminal justice reform. “It reduces recidivism. And at the end of the day, it lowers crime and it produces safer neighborhoods.”
The Trump effect on politics is causing things to happen that nobody could have seen coming. The GOP is becoming the party of criminal justice reform, and Kim Kardashian is at the center of it all.
“To realize America’s full potential, we must unlock the talents of every single citizen,” Trump said.
Libertarians far and wide ought to be cheering because of Trump’s push to curb the excesses of the prison-industrial complex.
