Kardashian met with Trump two months ago to discuss prison reform and to plead for Johnson, who was serving life in prison for a first-time, nonviolent drug offense.
Following the good news from Trump one week after the meeting, Kardashian sat down with Van Jones on CNN. In relating events, she left out one minor detail: She was naked when Trump called her. “I was at a Steven Klein photo shoot and, if anyone knows who he is, it’s pretty much a nude shoot,” Kardashian told Jimmy Kimmel. “So, I’m naked, and my phone rings, and I’m all glammed up, and I’m like, ‘Get me a robe!’ You know, and I was waiting for the call. Not knowing when it was going to come even if it was it. And it was it.” Kimmel instantly identified the lede in her story: “You were naked when Donald Trump called you.” But Kardashian emphasized that she “put a robe on” before getting on the phone.
“Did the president know you were just in a robe and nothing else?” Kimmel asked. She said Trump didn’t know she was naked, nor did she tell him. Kimmel said things might have worked out even better for her if she had told him. “He probably would have released the whole prison. … Gates would have swung open.”
