The photo of Kim Kardashian West with President Trump has been causing uproars in the Internet – and for all the right reasons. Well, there have been naysayers that say that the White House is no place for the reality star but oh boy, a reality star is at the helm of the White House now. Well, going back to the issue at hand, Kim Kardashian personally lobbied President Trump to grant a pardon or commutation to the 63 year old great grandmother Alice Johnson – and apparently, it has worked. President Trump just granted Johnson commutation. The commutation came swiftly after the Kim-Trump meeting in the Oval office last week, which mainly focused on prison reform and the potential pardon for Johnson.
Johnson is serving a life sentence without parole for a first-time, nonviolent drug offense that she had committed in the early 1990s. She was sentenced for participating in a drug distribution ring which included tasks like “holding money and passing along messages.” The incarcerated great grandmother was doing her time in Federal Correctional Institution, Aliceville. She has already spent 21 years in prison.
Before Fame: She used to work for FedEx.

Johnson told Mic that she that she got involved in the drug trade at a particularly bad time in her life. Her son had died in a motorcycle crash, and her marriage had ended in divorce. She also had lost her job, causing financial strain. “I couldn’t find a job fast enough to take care of my family,” she said. “I felt like a failure.”
She had married her childhood sweetheart and became the mother to five beautiful children.
Johnson has missed an entire lifetime with her family. She said,” I missed the birth of my grandchildren, being able to be in their life. I just had a great-grandson. I missed that. Both of my parents had passed away. I was not able to be by either of their sides in their final days. That’s an ache that I can’t — that never goes away.”
