Kim Kardashian West goes to Washington

in Celebrities by

Kim Kardashian West meets with President TrumpAfter criticizing Trump since he was inaugurated, Kim Kardashian West has gone to Washington D.C. to meet with him to hopefully get clemency granted to Ms. Alice Marie Johnson. She arrived yesterday with her attorney, Shawn Holley, to meet with the president. This meeting has been in the works for months.

Ms. Alice Marie Johnson is serving a life sentence for a first-time, non-violent drug offense. The 63 year old grandmother was convicted in 1996 on eight criminal charges stemming from a cocaine trafficking operation involving more than a dozen people. As of today she has spent 20 years behind bars and is not eligible for parole.

Johnson has been honest about what led for her to become involved in drugs. She had lost her job at Fedex due to a gambling addiction, she got divorced, and her son died in a motorcycle accident. She said during a recent interview, “I felt like a failure… I went into a complete panic and out of desperation, I made one of the worst decisions of my life to make some quick money. I became involved in a drug conspiracy.”

Kardashian West first heard about Johnson’s plight in from a Mic video posted last October. Kardashian West shared the video on Twitter and the video was viewed more than 8 million times.

Sources are saying that the meeting went well and that Kardashian West feels that this is going to move in a positive direction. She also met with Jared Kushner and Ivanka for dinner to discuss the potential pardon.

Kim Kardashian West issued a statement that said, “I would like to thank President Trump for his time this afternoon. It is our hope that the President will grant clemency to Ms. Alice Marie Johnson who is serving a life sentence for a first-time, non-violent drug offense. We are optimistic about Ms. Johnson’s future and hopeful that she—and so many like her—will get a second chance at life.”

When Johnson realized that Kardashian West was meeting with the president about commuting her sentence, she penned a very emotional letter thanking the reality tv star. Johnson wrote, “Ms Kardashian you are literally helping to save my life and restore me to my family. I was drowning and you have thrown me a life jacket and given me hope that this Life jacket I’m serving may one day be taken off.”

There is no word yet whether Trump will commute Johnson’s sentence but he did tweet that he had great meeting with Kardashian West.

Elon Musk to Quit Trump’s Advisory Councils if Trump Pulls out of the Paris Deal

Elon Musk threatens to quit Trump's advisory councilsReal life Tony Stark, Elon Musk, is passionate about the health of the planet. Not only does he have a successful electric car company but he also has been focusing on helping to build environmentally-friendly and safe energy solutions for people’s homes and for businesses. Needless to say, the man is passionate about the environment. So it comes as no surprise that Musk is threatening to quit Trump’s advisory councils if Trump pulls the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement.

Musk has been serving on three of Trump’s advisory councils since he became President last year. Musk serves on the business advisory council, formally known as the Strategic and Policy Forum. He is also part of the president’s manufacturing jobs initiatives and has met with Trump to discuss the need to boost infrastructure spending. Musk served on the councils despite receiving immense backlash from fans and customers. However, it looks like Musk might be changing his tune now that Trump is threatening to pull the US from the Paris Climate Agreement.

Yesterday Musk said that he feels like he has done all he can to try and advise Trump to not pull out of the deal. He tweeted that, “Don’t know which way Paris will go, but I’ve done all I can to advise directly to POTUS, through others in WH & via councils, that we remain.”

Another Twitter user asked what Musk would do if Trump decided to exit the deal, he responded with, “Will have no choice but to depart councils in that case”.

Musk has been working diligently with the current White House administration to make sure that climate issues aren’t put by the wayside. The new administration seems to think that global warming is a non-issue. Musk was criticized for serving on the boards but he insisted that he needed to provide opposing views of the current administration and to provide guidance.

Trump is expected to make a decision by today whether the United States will leave the Paris deal. The U.S. signed the accord in 2015 and is committed to reducing carbon emissions by 26% to 28% within the next decade.

UPDATE: Musk has announced on his Twitter account that he has decided to quit all the councils that he was serving on for Trump. His statement via Twitter said, “Am departing presidential councils. Climate change is real. Leaving Paris is not good for America or the world.”

SNL Writer Suspended for Offensive Barron Trump Tweet

in People by


Saturday Night Live writer Katie Rich has been suspended indefinitely from her job at the NBC show after she posted a controversial tweet about President Donald Trump’s 10-year-old son, Barron.

During Trump’s inauguration ceremony on Friday, January 20, Rich tweeted that “Barron will be this country’s first homeschool shooter.”

Yikes. This tweet drew instant backlash on social media, causing the comedian to delete the tweet and deactivate her account.

Rich reinstated her account on Monday, January 23, and apologized for taking a shot at the child. “I sincerely apologize for the insensitive tweet. I deeply regret my actions and offensive words,” she wrote. “It was inexcusable & I’m so sorry.” I love SNL, and they are good at conveying political controversies in a creative and funny way. This was neither of those things.

Not a great moment for Rich. I would say that most of us would like to be different than our parents in some aspect, and to compare a 10-year-old child to a shooter is not okay. Social Media and Fake News have made this election cycle more toxic and divisive than normal. Trying to keep it focused on the politicians and not the kids is a civilized thing to do.

Some powerful politicians came to Barron’s rescue. Many people, including former first daughter Chelsea Clinton defended Barron and argued that children of politicians should be off-limits. “Barron Trump deserves the chance every child does-to be a kid,” the 36-year-old daughter of former president Bill Clinton and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton tweeted on Sunday. “Standing up for every kid also means opposing @POTUS policies that hurt kids.”

Meryl Streep Dumps on Trump

meryl dumps trump

Last night the Golden Globe Awards Ceremony took place, and as awards were given and the beautiful humans of Hollywood graced the carpet, Meryl Streep was the one who stole the spotlight in her acceptance speech that dumped on President-Elect Donald Trump. In a nearly 6-minute address, while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award, the actress denounced Trump’s campaign rhetoric and criticized him for mocking a disabled reporter. If you logged on Facebook anytime after 8 pm last night through the morning, there were probably at least 1,000 shares of her video on your news feed.

And as you can imagine, everyone has an opinion on Streep using her Hollywood platform to address a political issue. Trump, in expected fashion, could not let the comments go unaddressed, but had to respond using his most obnoxious and unpresidential form of communication, Twitter. I’m sure most of Ameria wishes Twitter would disable his account.

Trump’s tweet response included:

“Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes. She is a…..

Hillary flunky who lost big. For the 100th time, I never “mocked” a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him…….

“groveling” when he totally changed a 16-year-old story that he had written to make me look bad. Just more very dishonest media!

Donald Trump is going to tire himself over the next four years if he responds to every major criticism that is said him again. He seems to enjoy digging himself deeper and deeper into a hole. He’s going to exhaust himself. Get over it man. A favorite quote of mine is “a wise man once said nothing.” Take note Mr. Trump.

We do not think that Meryl Streep is overrated. She might be a nasty woman, in the best way possible.

Kanye Visits Trump Tower

in People by


Kanye West doesn’t seem fazed by the backlash levied against him by fans and friends for meeting with President-elect Donald Trump. This move doesn’t look great for Trump considering Kayne’s turn of unfortunate events lately. He was admitted in November to a hospital and released early December after having a mental breakdown. Not sure what qualifications or business he has with the President-Elect. Not that we are impressed with Trump’s advisors or circles, to begin with.

A day after the hip-hop mogul’s meeting with Trump at Trump Tower in New York, West on Wednesday tweeted a signed copy of TIME Magazine’s “Person of the Year” issue with Trump on the cover.

A report from CNN stated, “This is the latest sign that West has some sort of admiration for the President-elect and is ready to work with him on issues that the rapper cares about, particularity the poverty and the violence that have plagued his native Chicago.” Kayne should probably work out his personal issues before taking on the nations. If you are not in a good state of mind, you shouldn’t be advising national issues. Kayne is neither respected nor admired by the general public. We are not sure why he thinks he is a suitable candidate to deal with these large issues. Once Mr. West returned to the lobby with Mr. Trump, he didn’t provide much information about the reasons for his visit. Seems a bit suspicious and weird if you ask me…. Our government is going to be run by reality TV stars. Fantastic.

Kayne tweeted that the meeting, which was requested by the rapper, was an opportunity for the rapper to discuss “multicultural issues.” We are not impressed with the future of our country. If “Making America Great Again” means depending on Kayne West, we are in for a bumpy four years. Is Trump “draining the swamp” or just replacing the swamp with people who are just as unqualified?
