Kim Kardashian celebrates President Donald Trump endorsing prison reform legislation

Kim Kardashian celebrated President Trump backing prison reform legislation that she lobbied for on Sunday's episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

During the episode titled Fire Escape, the 38-year-old reality star met with Alice Johnson —a former drug trafficker whom she had successfully lobbied President Trump to free back in 2018— to cook a meal together.

Johnson's two sisters joined the Kardashians for the cooking session held at Kendall Jenner's house as fires raged around Kim's home and other family members.

They bemoaned the lack of avenues and support for prisoners seeking to rehabilitate their lives.

'When I was pleading your case to the president, I was like, ''She has family that she can live with, and she has job offers. So that was a huge thing I had to say ''She has a job offer''.' Kim told Alice.

'There are so many people in Alice's situation that really do deserve a second chance, and that's one of the main reasons I'm fighting for this First Step Act,' she said in a confessional referencing the bipartisan bill that Trump endorsed.

Later in the show, aspiring lawyer Kim attended a Criminal Justice Reform Summit in Los Angeles, where she was interviewed by attorney Van Jones, a CNN host.

'Real talk,' Kim confided in him before the event. 'This law school s***? There is so much reading to do. I am like, dying here.'

'Law school is more of a socialization process than an educational process anyway,' Jones said. 'It's more learning to think like a lawyer than all the actual stuff.'

He praised her doggedness and rigorousness in pursuit of the truth.

'All that stuff, you can't teach,' he told her.

As she prepared to go before an audience, Kim and her colleagues learned the First Step Act had passed with bipartisan support.

'This whole motion would not have been possible had it not been for Kim Kardashian,' Jones told the crowd.

He then asked her why she got involved.

'I did consider that I would get a lot of backlashes if I went to the White House,' said Kim.

'But for me, if it's life versus my reputation, like, people talk s*** about me all day long, like, I didn't really care. And from meeting all of the people that I have met behind bars, I guarantee you—they don't care who signs that clemency paper.'

'Tell me why you love him so much,' Jones continued.

'I do respect the fact that he's always himself, no matter if it's popular,' Kim explained.

'I look back at all the products that I would endorse, the cupcakes and the shoes that I would never wear, and all this stuff that wasn't me, and I would do it for the check. I'm not like that anymore because of him. Because he has really shown me… to do what I believe in,' she added.
