Kim Kardashian West met with President Donald Trump, Jared Kushner, and other White House officials yesterday to advocate for the clemency of Alice Marie Johnson, a woman serving a life sentence for a first-time, non-violent drug offense. Kardashian thanked the President for his time on her personal Twitter, additionally writing, “We are optimistic about Ms. Johnson’s future and hopeful that she—and so many like her—will get a second chance at life.”

Kardashian West did not directly address critics of her visit with Trump or those questioning her right as a reality star and businesswoman to engage in political advocacy on behalf of Johnson. But she did indirectly. Kardashian West liked three tweets by Tracy Nguyen Romulus, a branding expert the mogul brought onto her team in November to help run her businesses. In her near-decade on Twitter, KKW has only liked four tweets. Liking Nguyen Romulus’ Tweets is savvy considering Trump is a prolific tweeter and no decision on Johnson has been made. KKW, who has made it clear she does not support his policies, has to tread carefully.

Romulus wrote:

“For all of you asking what does @KimKardashian know about prison reform, she is there today to try to free Alice Marie Johnson, a great grandmother locked up for life in prison after a single non violent drug charge (she had no criminal history) – isn’t that a good thing? Today she’s meeting with the only person who can get Alice pardoned so instead of questioning why she is there it might be nice for a change to wish for the best. Also, today is Alice’s birthday. What an incredible gift it would be for this woman & her family for her to be freed. I find it ridiculous that people will constantly criticize her for doing ‘nothing’ yet when she does ‘something’ she also gets criticized. Kim has been quietly funding this woman’s legal defense for months and has fought every single day to try to get her freed.”
