Samantha Bee and Van Jones are praising Kim Kardashian.
The pair sat down with Andy Cohen on Thursday’s episode of “Watch What Happens Live” and discussed the “brilliant” reality star and her decision to take on law school to hopefully become a lawyer.
The CNN host says even he underestimated her, “I still had her kind of like frozen in time back in the Paris Hilton days,” he admitted before adding, “she’s brilliant; she is no joke.” And Bee agreed.
Jones has spent time with the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star, 38, during her trips to the White House in her fight for prison reform, revealing he chats with her a few times a week, “She’s incredibly persuasive and persistent and she eats law books for breakfast.”
“She cares a lot about criminal justice,” he said. “I think people thought it was some kind of publicity stunt a year ago. She’s the only celebrity I know – usually, I’m calling celebrities and asking them to help me on cases. She called me asking me to help her on cases.”
And when Cohen wondered what the dynamic between Kardashian and President Donald Trump was, Jones revealed, “It was like watching a ballerina hypnotize a grizzly bear.”
Later Jones and Bee discussed Joe Biden’s “touchy” approach, a topic the “Full Frontal” host took down during her time on “The Daily Show”.
“We really had a lot of fun with it at ‘The Daily Show’,” the Canadian comedian said. “Only now has he come to understand that he cannot greet people with a gentle hair sniff.”
