As news emerges that everyone from National Enquirer publisher David Pecker to Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg have been granted immunity for their apparent cooperation in Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, Donald Trump took a break from tweeting “Witch Hunt!” and “No Collusion!” to send a random shoutout to Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West.
Appearing Friday at a Republican fundraiser in Ohio, the president remarked, “Now we’re doing great and Kanye West liked me and that really lifted my — Kanye West has some real power!”
The former “Celebrity Apprentice” host also had praise for Yeezy’s better half. “He’s got a good wife too, in Kim, I’ll tell ya,” Trump told the crowd. “She really is.”
Continuing, Trump referenced his commuting the sentence of Alice Marie Johnson after being petitioned by the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star when she visited the White House.
“She did a great thing. She did a great thing. 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. 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,” Trump declared.
“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,” Trump added. “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.”
