Oh, you thought we meant Kim Jong Un? Nope. While that summit still might happen, Wednesday Trump sat down with a different world icon – Her Majesty Kim Kardashian West. If you’re having trouble picturing it, here’s some photographic evidence.

Considering how big a fan of the president her husband is, we shouldn’t be overly surprised that Trump was happy to see Kim K. She was there for a lot more than a photo-op though. She tweeted later that the meeting with Trump, which lasted about an hour, was to discuss prison reform, sentencing and the potential pardon of Alice Marie Johnson — a 63-year-old woman currently serving out a life sentence in prison for a non-violent first-time drug offence.

Regardless of what you think of Kardashian, prison reform is a noble cause and a major celebrity drawing attention to it could bring the awareness needed to make change. Her meeting with Trump sparked online criticisms that she should just stick to selling makeup and taking nudes. Yes, Kim has been known to dabble in the frivolous, but as a human being, she has every right to fight for the causes she believes in. This isn’t the first time Kim K has gotten political either. Most notably, in 2016, she penned an open letter on her app to Armenian genocide deniers about the horrors facing Armenians in Turkey.

Her history of political action didn’t stop people – including the media — from making jokes about her. The worst came from The New York Post which made three references to Kardashian’s rear end on just the front page. Wow, clever.

Both fans and non-fans came to the reality star’s defence. Maybe it’s the kind of joke a late night host would make at Kardashian’s expense, but to make it three times on the cover of a publication just seems harsh. Especially since – not to be the one who always ruins fun with feminism – it’s clearly gendered and diminishes an intelligent, vocal woman and the work she’s doing by fixating on one of her body parts.

We’ll stay tuned for more details on what Kim and Trump discussed and, in the meantime, keep watching the will-they-won’t-they drama of the North Korea/United States Summit.
