President Trump Kim Kardashian

President Trump has commuted the sentence of a grandmother who was serving life in prison without parole on charges of money laundering and drug conspiracy.

63-year-old Alice Marie Johnson was a first-time offender when she was sentenced to life in 1997.

Kardashian announced the news on Twitter.com on Wednesday -- a week after she visited the White House to discuss prison reform and Johnson's case with Trump.

"BEST NEWS EVER!!!!" She tweeted along with a link to a news article about Johnson's commuted sentence.

Kardashian said Trump "really spent the time to listen to our case that we were making for Alice. He really understood, and I am very hopeful that this will turn out really positively."

Kardashian began to tweet about Johnson's case after former President Obama commuted the sentences of dozens of drug dealers and petty criminals but overlooked Johnson in 2016.

Trump is reportedly considering pardoning 30 prisoners.

    Wow...God is good. Good for this lady and as crazy as Kim is good for her too. Still have much work to do with our community Trump...

    Alot of black folk don't wanna talk to Trump, but maybe they should see what he's talking about? He's already showed us who he is. Nevertheless, it still doesn't hurt to have a "conversation". Otherwise, continue to bitch and moan.

  • Trace da Ace

    what was the sentence commuted to?? Time served, I hope....this lady really needs to get out....and there is STILL work to be done, but good first step....I guess

  • Wreckognize Game

    I didn't see that coming. But it's good Kim was able to talk to 45.

  • pecancandy

    Great news

  • Phillybruh

    Well Money is what gets this Presidents attention and If you have it, front of the line.

  • king shun

    I feel she should stay locked up.. but from what people on here tell me Trump hates blacks why would he do something like this??

  • WutizstillHERE!

    If he does, it won't be until close to elections when he want the votes...

  • RespectSelf

    Wow that's great!

  • Pnthr

    I bet there wasn another Monica Lewinsky moment ?

  • king shun

    Lebron and Obama is mad about this and the rest of the black Demoncraps

  • Vonn

    More donnie manipulation. He already thinks koonye & koonye's spouse "helps" with black people's perception of him. He wants to continue a back scratching relationship with the koonyes. Congrats to Alice Johnson.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Well, good for her.
    I do not know any background on her story. Roses?

  • Phillybruh

    Because of what's in it for him. Everything is about what is in it for him.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    This was probably about sending a signal to Paul Manafort not to panic because Trump will have his back after he is convicted next month.

  • RespectSelf

    lol

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Trump's hillbilly supporters will never get that through their thick skulls.

  • andrice

    Puhleeze! This is politics. Kim should've kept her butt outta this. Trump will use this for bad. ALL BAD.
    just wait and see.

  • Karen Brady

    awwwww shhyttt... here we go now. But I'm glad for the woman. Don't know your story but stay out of trouble now and keep your azz out the pokey. You too old for any mess now. Get you some AARP and some ice cream and just chill.

  • Phillybruh

    I don't think a pardon can help Manafort....lol

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920
  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    He commuted the sentence of ONE black person because a rich Hollywood celebrity kissed his behind and you think that Trump is brand new?
    If Trump signs the prison reform bill that's being written in Congress maybe I will give him a listen but Obama tried to do the same thing and Congressional Republicans refused to do anything.

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    Other than posting p ucee pics and being a total and complete attention tr@mp she did something good.. Yay! Her mentally unstable *new black* husband is still cancelled.

  • Karen Brady

    !!!. Why did I think something along these lines myself?

  • hi-liter

  • Carrington

    The lady's sentence has been commuted. We all know WHY he did it. Can we be happy for the sister and leave it at that? We all know that this isn't going to change how any of us feel about HIM.
    Damn, can we get over "our" hatred for Kim Kardashian soon? The b*tch been around for 12 years and y'all still letting her get your blood pressures up? Be thankful the broad got the sister some help and move around.

  • TMW

    Wondering what she promised Trump in return...hmmm. And there is a whole tenuous process for commuting of a sentence by a President...did he bypass the 1,000’s of applications sitting there and breach protocols for a photo op and for more publicity from Kanye and Kim Kardashian?

  • Owww76

    LOL! Word!

    I am certain that a KardTrashcan Pussy will be sacrificed.

  • SDot

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Trump will try though.
    He's either going to jail where he will be safe or he will be 'suicided'.

  • Rico768

    I thought it was weird during the prayer they had all the black people behind Melina with blacks for trump posters.
    but why she can not speak good English but reading the prayer talking about America is great and our country,.

  • TMW

    What you said. Trump absolutely only cares about Trump.

  • hi-liter

    Jason Bateman.....one of my favs...very funny dry humor with those don't give a fuc facial expressions.

  • SpillyNillie

    Good for Ms. Johnson! Won't worry about the logistics and motive(s). All that matters is that she's free and going home to her fam...

  • TMW

    And she’ll be trotted out like a show horse at public events and rallies. This is feeling like Alice might be free, but she has sold her soul. Her freedom is not free, please believe.

  • Vonn

    It will probably be Scott. He 's the closest to donnie's physical type.

  • Dun Dilly

    Salute!
    IF U HATE ON THIS...you have HaterADDICTION.

  • xenaD

    She and Trump are cut from the same cloth so.... ?????

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Even the most even person will do something good every now and then. So I cant hate on this. This is a good move by Trump.
    All the best to Alice and her family moving forward.

    THIS!

  • Yoni7

    Sacrificed? You mean SACKED and FRIED........like usual.

  • hi-liter

    And neither of their ignorant asses deserve to have a platform on anything. Glad KK got the lady sentence commuted but we all know he did it for KK, and not Marie Johnson.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    So true. People spend so much negative energy hating on somebody who doesnt know them or care about them one bit.
    I dont get it.

  • Dun Dilly

    HAter addicts find anything to hate on...daily. BLK grandma free and folks still hating.

  • Vonn

    donnie is ALWAYS looking for an angle.

  • Vonn

    donnie is ALWAYS looking for an angle.

  • Yoni7

    But Bruce looks more like melania, so it might be a toss up.

  • justlooking

    if you going that route, it's a sacrifice even for them ran through wenches.

  • Rayne

    Good for Ms. Johnson, I still don’t like HER ?

  • Miss Thang

    Kim just knew about the story. Kim has also spoken out about another young black woman in jail. I'm forgetting her name right now. But she's in jail for shooting and killing her John when actually she was a victim of sex trafficking.

  • HelloToni

    I love when celebrities can use their fame for influence. This was an unselfish act.

  • justlooking
  • Miss Thang

    WELL, if Trump did it!!!!
    In a few years, we are going to have PURE CELEBRITIES in office. Mark my words.

  • HelloToni

    Exactly..Like my grandmother says, a broken clock is right twice a day. She did an unselfish thing..say what you want but she did to have to do it....

  • Yoni7

    Welcome home, mama. I wonder how the judge that sentenced her feels about this?

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Kim "helped" because she wants a black Aunty who can teach her how to actually cook. Thanksgiving is right around the corner!!

  • FukkFolks2018

    Celebs who use their influence to make a difference don't bother me. What does bother me was the whole look at me aspect. The photo op. The obvious fake ass build up to this meeting her husband did prior etc. Carry your ass on someplace, make a difference. Then talk about it maybe?

    I caint.

    Welcome home Alice

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    It's only after lunch on Hump Day.
    You should have saved that one for 3pm on Friday.

  • Mirella

    Since I am thankful, I won't call her the b*tch. I congratulated her on her Instagram page too.

  • Yoni7

    Why?

  • MissHarlem

    I'm supposed to give a fck or at the very least care that a "good" deed was done?!! ??? y'all can have that.

  • Yardgirl

    THIS!!^^^

    Glad for Alice who got a raw deal in the first damn place. Welcome home sis.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I doubt that the bill will make it through the Senate thanks to Sen. Cotton from Arkansas.
    Somedays I wish Trump had nominated him to become CIA director instead of Mrs. Torture.

  • KJBibleOnSlaveShips

    ok Trump did blk women a favor so go vote republican at the primaries Tuesday. But this how dense Kany Kim and Dump is.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    You know Fox News is trying to get the first interview.
    Maybe Candace Owens will interview her on her youtube channel.

  • hi-liter

    He actually did it for his Celebrity friend Kim K. Ms. Johnson was just the recipient.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Because it was funny and now I can't concentrate.
    Ha,ha,ha!!

  • NuBeauty

    Oh Okay, that's what's up. The world may say what they say about Kim but she is alright. At least she is bring some light for these ladies. No telling how many women and men are lock up with extremely long sentences. My love and thought are for the ones who don't have no one fighting for them and for the ones who died before they're case was ever looked at.

  • Yoni7

    Well why wait for Friday, when you can have it on Wednesday. Let's continue to make it a great week!

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    This is more rigged than the NBA finals. Don trying to show he care about black people. Kim trying to act like she care about black people other than a black man to further her career. Kim trying to be for Donnie what Beyonce was to Obama. This screams publicity. I'm not buying it. Happy for the sista, but.... my eyes are still wide open.

  • KJBibleOnSlaveShips

    Kim's lips is starting to dry up.Missing melanin of course. Whyte women age in dog years.dam!!!!

  • Simone

    She used her celebrity platform for something positive. President Trump listened to her and made a good decision based on some facts, including Ms. Alice Johnson being a model prisoner for 2 decades. The First Black President Obama did not pardon her or posthumously-pardon boxing legend Jack Johnson. Kim did a good thing. President Trump did a very good thing.

  • hi-liter

    Quiet as kept, not only did he only commute this lady sentence BECAUSE of his Celeb friend KK...PLUS I read an article that stated Dump believes he has more Black support because of Ye and Kim, but GOD will use what someone meant for bad and turn it into good.

  • Miss Thang

    I am happy for Mrs. Johnson and her family.

  • Yoni7

    And THEY gone let her.

  • Vonn

    Yes, yes, yes. Quite a conundrum we have here. ??

  • Simone

    Maybe Obama should of showed he cared about Black people because he did not pardon her, but Trump did. Democrats love to call Trump's base racist (which is not true clearly), so why would be pardon Ms. Alice Johnson? His racist base would not approve, right?

  • Miss Thang

    well, yes, but they are all sick celebs in that Hollyweird frame of mind. Kanye got publicity for his album. This is sick. Kanye may actually for real run for presidency in 2020 and actually win.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    LOL!

    he is a contrary old thing, to be so young!

  • hi-liter

    I really believe if these were "regular" folk advocating for Ms. Johnson, the shit would of been ignored like a MF.

  • tia

    just trying to enjoy the moment for lady...

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Of course he did.

  • Vonn

    You're right. Bruce would win. He has breasts, looks like melania, and he's a wonderful liar. Perfect for donnie.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Kanye is now going to hit the world with a "My Wife is Doper Than Yours" rant

  • tia

    tell 'em... some of these folks don't have a clue. Everything you said. They one sided.. if if were someone other than Kim, it would be okay. I'm not a big fan, but I'm happy for the ladies family.

  • FukkFolks2018

    This is more rigged than the NBA finals
    ^^^^^^
    No secret I bet on sports. And win 90% of the time. But bay-beee thank God I helped my mom out and didn't have it to put up this NBA Finals. I would be hurting like HELL. I predicted Cleveland. I don't even LIKE them. But they are a better squad. I know it's rigged lmao but I totally didn't see them losing that first game or the second. Happy for my Warriors tho!

  • tia

    yes!

  • Karen Brady

    ROTFLMAOOOOOOOOOOO

  • FukkFolks2018

    why would be pardon Ms. Alice Johnson?
    ^^^^
    Bc other than this he has pissed off blacks greatly. To change his image, reputation, and to gain votes for upcoming Republican elections. Bc his party hates him too. Anything else?

  • tia

    thank you... it's so old.

    They are creepy AF

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    So now you know my political party huh? Black ppl are always divided, now we are further dividing ourselves by criticizing our political parties when NEITHER PARTY gives a damn about a black person. We as black people make the mistake that since someone throws us a few crumbs we're actually eating a loaf of bread at the head of the table. We aren't. We are still eating crumbs that they are throwing away, or in this case throwing our way. You want to show me something. Show me a politician that will put an end to police brutality, put jobs in the hood, keep drugs and guns out of the hood, put a dent in poverty, stop their racist actions, equal pay, equal housing, equal education for our youth, ahhh but you don't hear me though cause Kim and Ye worked out a publicity stunt to get ONE black person out of the system they continuously use to keep us imprisoned. But I'm still gonna send love your way. I won't let us be divided any further.

  • pure_rachet

    Don't like the Kardashians but Kim does one mean smokey eye!

  • FukkFolks2018

    Almost all the comments say...welcome home Alice. We are happy for you Alice. Thank God she is out etc. But sorry. Nobody has to like Kim, her husband, or any other Trump supporters or sympathizers. They dont. A good deed gets you an acknowledgement for the most part. Not instant acceptance

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Yeah, you know it's bad when it's the topic at ESPN. Worst part is that if GSW is such a good team they wouldn't need the refs, but the refs are making SURE with NO DOUBT that Cavs lose. I stopped watching. I wanted to see some good ball. Not mind games.

  • MissHarlem

    And I'm gonna hit him with the mute button like I been doing since 2010 ?

  • Soda

    And he used Kim so that we'd forgive Kanye's slavery was a choice b.s.

    Some of these folks can't see the forest for the damn forest!!!

  • MissHarlem

    When the announcers at the game is constantly baffled by the calls you know it's some bs

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I'm happy the lady is being released. I'm not familiar with the story (they all blend together after a while). Was this one of the cases where the police are unable to get the actual drug dealer so they imprison the homeowner, or was she a legit drug kingpin?

    Smh@ the fact Kim will get credit for this.

  • n1kk1a

    She probably gave him so head or let him grab her by the p*ssy so he’d say yes.?

  • BadAss Will

    Now release my 6 family members, 4 friends and 2 ex's who's in for life.... Well most deserve to be.

  • FukkFolks2018

    As if we are the only folks who dislike them. "When are we going to stop "our" dislike for them"

    No group of people likes them. Whites. Blacks. Asians. Hispanics. The dislike of Kim and her family is equal opportunity and trancends race. Like REALLY. Go right on over to white blogs. Same comments.

  • Mirella

    Congratulations Kim Kardashian! You had invested a lot of time and effort in this, and now Alice Marie Johnson is free.

  • FukkFolks2018

    You and @Chase said same thing. My exact sentiments

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    true. but i'll be damned if i go running to push some yt girl back up on her pedestal. especially when in this same forum, folks drag Black women daily (as is their right). but if the 'celebrity' Sisters gotta take hits, this chick can take hers.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    *cackles*

  • Kemi

    I hope this was a genuine campaign and not self serving agenda from the K camp, to merge themselves into politics. And also to repair Kanye’s image, since the “slavery was a choice” comment. All the same congratulations to Ms. Johnson!!!! I’m skeptical..

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    LOL!

  • MissHarlem

    I almost texted you at the top of the fourth because of that call ?

  • JV

    That's excellent that someone long recommended for a pardon or commute is getting justice. What isn't is the justice reform rollback Sessions put through last year, which re-instated unnecessarily harsh mandatory sentencing for low-level drug offenders. It's insuring that there will be more Alice Marie Johnsons in the future.

  • JV

    "Genuine" and "Kardashian" doesn't belong in the same sentence, so I think there's your answer.

  • Soda

    But they're being nice so that in case you fall asleep you won't lose your place and have to search!

  • free

    so he did kim a solid in return for her husband's support. let's not pretend he gives a shyt about this lady.

  • Elevated Soul

    Shout out to President Trump for granting clemency to Alice Marie Johnson who incidentally was denied clemency 3 times by "OBAMA" the supposed Black President who gave less than a d@mn about the Black Condition.

    Shout out to Kim Kardashian for bringing publicity to this case.I thought the Democratic Party is supposed to be an advocate for issues such as prison Reform?

    Shout out to my Black people who accept the goodwill of President Trump.Thumbs down to Negroes who still want to question and complain about anything that President Trump does.

    I will be surprise if Fake News even speaks of this case. If it's spoke on,they will spin it into racism of some sort because that's what racists do.

  • Kemi

    Thank you lol...this is the same woman, that was more concerned with her public image than her husband’s mental breakdown.

  • U gon learn today

    Yes, Trump did a good thing. Instead of meeting with members of the black community who are closest to this issue of disparities within the justice system, or even with Alice Johnson’s family, he chose to meet with a reality star who could help influence young urban voters and he got a great photo op in the process. All while revoking any and all 0bama era initiatives to bring justice reform and even advocating that he wants to see drug dealers get the death penalty. Just last week, Trump supposedly was not even considering a pardon for Ms Johnson and other WH officials were also against it. But he’s also looking to pardon Martha Stewart and the corrupt Rod Blagojevich and how could he possibly get away with this politically? Alas, by using his 2 new puppets Kim and Kanye, who he praised for helping to bring him more black voters. In return, he will throw the black community a bone by way of an Alice Johnson pardon. May we never forget. All hail Trump!

  • Yui
  • Elevated Soul

    Where is your PROOF that he don't care?

  • RespectSelf

    Let's not pretend that most folks in politics give af about anybody... including Obama

  • Blue

    lol

  • RespectSelf

    lol From what I read... She's been in communication with Alice for a little while now. Way before the media misquoted her husband. But I hope it was genuine on her's and Trump behalf.

  • KLove

    LOL through all the negativity, nobody mentioned how their savior Obama denied this same woman clemency 3 times!!! Now Trump does it, and there just has to be some sort of ulterior motive!! Unbelievable!!

  • Coffee1st

    Perfect.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Should have. You know I was awake lmao

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Bloop

  • Kemi

    Oh I see, the punishment clearly didn’t fit the crime. I’m happy for Ms. Johnson long awaited freedom.

  • RespectSelf

    Honestly anything politicians do should be looked at as a way to obtain votes. Even if they are nice people... they got advisers that just see votes. So folks shouldn't act like this is anything new

  • Soda
  • BingBangBoom

    I'm so Happy for her. Now please pay your dues and do some good Ms. Johnson.

  • Elevated Soul

    Who cares what you're buying?

    The bottom line is that a Black woman was granted clemency by a President that many ignoramuses deem racist.She was also denied clemency by Obama 3 times! He would not dare to help a Black person,just like he wouldn't dare to help the Black prisoner on death row,yet he lifted his fingers to help an illegal who raped a girl.

    What the fugg was Beyonce to Obama,other than a prop? She sure as he!! DID NOT use her celebrity to help someone so WTF is you talking about? None of those entertainers from blind Stevie Wonder to Beyonce did a d@mn except to accept their white-house invite.....They were just props for Obama. Smart Blacks are not impressed with entertainers or symbolism.

  • Coffee1st

    I think most are happy for Ms. Alice but are calling foul on kim and trumps motives.
    IOW, GREAT for her but trump/kim ain’t foolin nobody.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Anybody know why Obama didn't pardon her? I mean let me just go to google. I'm not understanding something...

  • tintin

    Would Trump have listened to a black person if they asked for the same thing Kim asked for?

  • MissHarlem

    I will tonight because I know the fckry level will be at 100

  • free

    check your facts. obama's commutation record speaks for itself.

  • free

    thank you! these trolls kill me.

  • Ryan

    Even the massuhs on the plantation let the slaves have Christmas off.

    I don't know why but when I first heard he'd pardoned a prisoner, I KNEW it wasn't going to be a black man. Happy for the woman who did get it through, cause this is gonna be it.

  • Roxie Moxie

    This is such a laughing stock. smh Politicians rubbing elbows with entertainers. I never got the connection. I feel like our government is one big reality show.

    I do not see this going on in other countries/continents. At all. They take their sh*t seriously. America? We are the jesters of the world, apparently.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Smart Blacks are not impressed with entertainers or symbolism.
    ^^^^^
    So either you aren't black or not smart, bc you are impressed with this...or BOTH.

    So possibly you are a non-intelligent... non black. And easily impressed by entertainers and symbolism.

  • Roxie Moxie

    TRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUER than a muhf*cka. We'll let the "others" believe that it was "from the goodness of his heart"...

  • Soda

    No, and he probably released her because it was cheaper to free her than to keep her in prison.

  • Roxie Moxie

    Ha! Right! lol

    I'm happy for Ms. Alice and her family. Thank you Kim Kardashian and President Trump. Please help to bring Wendall Brown home from China.

    A few of the drug dealers that Obama pardoned were murdered execution style shortly after their release. Demarlon Thomas was murdered in a federal half way house, execution style.

    One of the drug dealers Obama commuted was Jim Townsend, the drug kingpin baby daddy of Steve Harvey's current wife. I wonder if Steve donated to the Obama's to get him freed. I mean Steve seems stupid for Marjorie he adopted all her kids she they have rights along with his real kids whom he neglected for years, according to the twins.

  • U gon learn today

    Yeah, let’s all send a BIG HUGE shout out to Obama for pardoning and/or commuting the sentences of nearly 2000 non-violent drug offenders who were previously railroaded by disparaging sentencing laws! Also shout to Obama for launching justice reforms and even bringing federal suit against corrupt police departments like Ferguson!

    Now you can shout out your President for dismantling those Obama justice reforms and for only issuing 6 pardons since being in office, one of those of being for the honorary racist AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio! Guess whos next on his list?? Martha Stewart! After all, she is a delicate white flower who shouldn’t have to deal with a felony record for insider trading while millions of black people sit in jails railroaded for simple marijuana possessions!

  • RespectSelf

    Now if a well liked celeb met with Trump and it benefited someone... There would not be all this hate. At the end of the day, this benefited Alice. Congrats to her and her family!

Never has been, never will be. I just choose to focus on other things. Where the Kardashian's buss it open and who they buss it open TO just ain't doing $hit for my bottom line. And it causes way too much strife for CERTAIN black folk. And as far as the "sheep" shit... OK... (insert blank stare riiiiight about here) the "woke" ones the ones who sleep the most. While y'all letting Kardashian coochies drive y'all crazy, your woke asses likely can't name a damn thing that Jefferson Sessions has put into place to actually AFFECT black folk. THAT's some $hit that should cause you to toss and turn. THESE b*tches? The only people who should be bothered by them are the women whose men they've slept with.

    you can praise your massa trump all you want for pardoning 1 BLACK woman who shouldn't have gotten a life sentence in the first place. now since you're so high on trump let's see if he talk's about or mention anything about justice reforms? your hate for president obama is funny as if obama was only the president for black people. we all know that the only reason he did this is because of all the negative comments he's made about black people and black NFL AND NBA PLAYER'S, the sh3t hole countries and not renting his apts to blacks. you my friend have such a slave mentality. massa throw you a bone and you love your massa, more than anything. what's wrong boss we sick this morning? why not mention the fact that president obama pardon 2000 people but i guess that wasn't good enough for you because you just love your massa so much. and the fake news you talk about is what your massa trump started with the whole birther movement about president obama. you being a very good slave probably even believed everything your massa said even agreeing that obama wasn't born here.

    the blank stare was due to you 'shaking the table' over presumed hate for Kim, when MOST folks in here clearly expressed gladness at the release of this woman. being dismissive of Kim or not jumping to sing her praises does not equate to hating her. she's a non-factor for most of us (Lord knows i've Never commented on, googled, thought, or cared about her nethers) and if she factored in this lady's release, then that's one worthwhile things she's done. no more no less. your need to 'gather' us over Kim is puzzling though.

  • hi-liter

    He’s basically using his pardon powers to show that when it’s time he will pardon ALL those individuals who are found guilty in this Russia probe. That’s the bad part. The good - he commuted this woman’s sentence. She may deserve it more than the criminals in this Russia mess.

    You are so very emotional for a man. Nobody cares who this bitch fukked. None of it. Her family is single handedly responsible for the demise of AT LEAST 5-6 BLACK men. And before you say those black men were responsible for their OWN demise, that is like saying those who get shot unarmed by the police had it coming. Or the ones who are killed by their neighbor shouldnt have been in the backyard that night. Or any of it. Stop being so damn emotional over how OTHER folks feel. Folks can NOT like these damn people. Why are you bothered that folks are bothered by them is the REAL QUESTION. THEY ARE ALLOWED to feel how in the fukk they feel about them. Good, bad, or otherwise. Alabama is my second home state. I can name shit about Jeff Sessions going back to the civil rights movement. So wrong again Carrington. Never liked your emotional soft suspect ass any damn way. Glad we have the BLOCK function now.

    LOL @ a dumb sheep like creature talking about me praising somebody while you let your white liberal massuhs and their black overseers play you like you are on the stroll making monopoly money.

    Unlike you I refuse to play down what President Trump did for this Black woman,that's what dumb sheep like you do.If your boy Obama had granted her clemency,you would be hi-fiving his actions,but of of course he didn't lift a finger to help Ms.Johnson.

    Blacks with your mentality need to overstand that not all Blacks think on your basic level.President Trump has not said a d@mn thing about Black people.He said something about players not standing for the anthem.He didn't even mention race,that's what you racists mention.Yes,I said racists.

    Unlike many idiots,President Trump does not worship athletes because he has been around real legends who actually did do for the Black Community.I didn't see these NBA players other dummies in the NFL speaking on the black life of Alice Marie Johnson.Blacks with your mentality are allow these selfish jocks/liberals/fake preachers/entertainers who want to stay in the good graces of the liberal elite to mislead you and your ignorance bring down the Black race.

    Actually Black Democrats like yourself are not friends to the betterment of the Black Condition because you have a slave mentality so deep,that you can't even see it.

  • Elevated Soul

    Why even ask the question especially since apparently no Black person had asked him? Perhaps a Black person asked Obama and it got them nowhere because he denied her clemency 3 times.

    The racism within the Black Community only serves to segregate Blacks. You can't display hostility toward people,while expecting them to do something for you....Black Democrats display hostility because White liberals and their Black puppets have brainwashed you to do so.

    You ask about our President while being silent on the supposed Black politicians who said nothing!!!!!

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Alot of ppl feel like she should still be in jail. Maybe Obama felt the same way, and Trump is trying to do the opposite of everything Obama did. Don't forget too that Obama doesn't like Kanye so this could be Kim's way of doing something not because she cares but becsuse it gets ppl saying maybe Trump does care about black folks if he could do something that Obama chose not to do.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Kim represents the Black community now ? She had to make this happen ASAP to make up for the Rhymefest/Chicago fiasco. It's funny that she didn't advocate for any white prisoners. She knows the exact agenda she's trying to push.

    I just want to remind everybody these things. Think about it.
    1) 45 is the same president who criticized Obama for pardoning drug case prisoners. There's a trail of internet links about how hypocritical 45 was to Obama. http://www.newsweek.com/trump-retweets-message-slamming-obama-over-decision-pardon-traitor-656012
    https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/obama-granted-clemency-unlike-any-other-president-in-history/
    2) Isn't it odd that KIMK and not Kanye asked the president? I mean, isn't Kanye the one who's always saying Obama didn't do nothing for black people and that Kanye is going to help black people in Chicago with charity? Strange isn't it?
    3) 45 seems to be pardoning "black" people at a rapid clip. I wonder if his base will support this.

    Anyhow, I'm glad Alice is out.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    "wasted a pardon on manning?" 45 wasted a pardon on Sheriff Arpaio of AZ.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    Strange that it's KIM leading the charge for black people and NOT Kanye?
    Well from what I can see with Harvey and his wife, they've been married for many many years and seem to be happy. Check back in when there's a divorce happening. But I'm for anybody who can find love and marriage in later life and STAY married -- unlike 45.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    Obama pardoned over 200 prisoners....maybe he ran out of time?

    Maybe Alice wasn't on the list because no one asked. YOU HAVE TO REQUEST PARDONS AND CLEMENCY....YOU HAVE TO ASK! :)
    And it's strange that all of a sudden all of Mueller's targets are asking for pardons from Trump. I can see Trump going into the next year pardoning a lot of personal friends....:)

    I am sick of this "Obama doesn't care for black people" going around. Just absolutely sick of it. Believe me, Obama has more black people who LOVE HIS ARSE than hate his arse.
    He was the first president who invited Hip-hop royalty, jazz artists, sports players, scholars into the WH who had never been invited before. He did a lot for people, and I'm sick of that argument - run by Kanye - that he didn't do nothing for black people.
    He was roundly criticized for pardoning 200 mostly black prisoners.

    Well you know it’s not cause Obama had some personal vendetta against the woman. He is typically kind-hearted and compassionate so maybe he had good reason or since he couldn’t help everybody, he had to put priority on the cases that were more pressing. Trump is only doing it now to say that he did it and Obama didn’t but there are a lot of a people who do not support this and think that Alice Johnson should remain in jail, but maybe given the possibility of parole instead of a non-revoking life sentence. Oh well. I’m sure Kim and her team are already cooking up a scheme for her to direct a documentary, so maybe we will get more answers then.

  • Evillene

    "President Obama commuted the sentences of dozens of drug dealers and petty criminals but overlooked Johnson in 2016."

    This goes to prove that the black race is IMMORAL. Whether you're pro-obama or pro-trump, these arguments most of you are saying comes from a position of DEFENDING IMMORALITY as if there's some honor in WHEN you get out of Prison. How about promoting CHANGING THE CULTURE so black women and men don't commit crimes?? How about STOP promoting single motherhood like its healthy and women making intelligent and responsible mating choices? THERE IS NO WHITE SUPREMACY, THERE'S JUST BLACK MEDIOCRITY, BLACK LOW EXPECTATIONS, SELF-DEFLECTING RESPONSIBILITIES AND IMMORAL DISHONESTY. MONKEY SEE MONKEY DO.

    Oh, you mean the way JayZ and all the others went to the WH to kiss Obama's ring, like that. Sweetheart, they are all narcissistic to the max. None are angels. It's why they are called politicians. And KKW is no friend of Trump but she was genuine about getting this woman out and presented her case. It pains me to give her credit but she showed off a lot of people, sometimes you have to rise above it and pursue your goal. I rise above things to give her credit. I'm not looking at Trump, I'm looking at her effort and outcome. But I guess no self respecting black person can sing the praises for the low unemployment # amongst blacks either. And no one was interested when he brought prison reform to the table, God forbid he gets some success on that angle.

  • hottlanta

    I bet Barry know the 28 words to the song God Bless America. Hell yes. Dump would have made sure they were dead by then. He paid a lot of money and made a lot of phone calls to make sure they went to jail for life and he would kept going until they died. He would have been all over the television screen saying he made his possible for their death. All he did when he became President was went to Michael's and buy a photo album to fill up with pictures of himself.

  • hottlanta

    Is Dump gonna get her a job in the White House. Just saying.

  • TMW

    I just looked at some statistics. During Obama’s presidency, he received over 33,000 requests for clemency, approved 1,700 and closed 4,200 with no action. For Bush’s total time in office, he only received a little over 8,000 requests. I think black people expected too much of Obama. He didn’t owe anyone anything.

    Pardon and clemency are two different things. From what I read, Johnson’s petition for clemency was denied in the last batch of denials in January 2017, which leads me to believe that it was probably closed without review as opposed to being denied.

    Trump has so far received about 2,300 clemency requests, denied 98 and approved 1. The rest have been closed with no action. I think people expect so little from President Trump that he gets praised for doing exactly what he is supposed to be doing. And you can best believe him commuting Alice Marie Johnson’s sentence has nothing to do with how deserving she was.

    --------------------------------
    If they wanted Barry to pardon her, all they had to do was pretend Alice was gay or trans. That would have done the trick. Even if you were a convicted traitor, Barry would bend over backwards for you so long as you're man who likes to have sex with other men. He seemed to be "extremely interested" in that ONE group

    But he never showed any interest in the lives of straight black women, so why would he care about whether Ms. Johnson, a FIRST OFFENDER, was serving a life sentence?

    Congrats Ms. Johnson, and thank you PRESIDENT Trump for doing the right thing.

I am happy the president pardoned Ms. Wilson from an unjust sentence. This was monumental advocacy on behalf of Ms. Wilson who so dearly needed and deserved advocacy.

  • the guest

    Kim's attorney presented a strong case for pardoning Ms. Wilson. Just like Jack Johnson's descendants presented a strong case for decades to pardon Jack Johnson. The president listened and issued the pardons.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Congratulations for Alice, the sentence didn't fit the crime!

    Kim West did something marvelous and Important with her celebrity!

    Trump did something priceless for this woman, her family and the legions of well-wishers for this Grandma!

    Kudos to both Kim and Trump, they made history!

    Regardless of their personal agendas, votes for Trump, a dig at Obama (his obsession), deflection from all of the Russia Probe, or ...

    Kim increasing and expanding her brand, adding something undeniable to her resume (social injustice activist), after stripping down (nude) for her skincare line, defending her repugnant husband or other media buzzing and self-promotion...

    Bottom line Alice walked thanks to these two narcissists, who did a great deed while self-promoting (publicity and brand building)!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Of course, but as she continues to brand build and stay relevant, outreach ( giving back) is a crucial component of her celebrity! It was a very smart move, and something important!

    It's something her kids can look back on and feel proud about ( her legacy), along with all the selfie female objectification and narcissism!

    She started this before Trump came into office, but it's something most people would see as injustice!

    Kim used her celebrity to help rectify (freedom fighter) while pulling a serious publicity stunt indeed with an outcome that is undeniable!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    You really can't compare the two, had Obama not releasing this woman wasn't a factor and Trump's image as a racist not cemented in the minds of many Americans, this would not have happened!

    This was a piece of cake for Kim, and with her comes legions of her social media followers, an important demographic, who will matter for the 2020 presidential run!

    Trump was campaigning and so was Kim for their own political aspirations, brand-building and diversification!

    Kudos to them for choosing and helping Alice to be a free woman in the process - priceless!

    What people fail to realize is that there are hundreds to thousands of Alice cases due to harsh drug sentencing from the 1990's and 2000's.

    President Obama couldn't release them all, Change dot org would send cases like this on the regular to subscribers to help release!

    I disagreed with Obama about releasing Manning, his crusade for Trans rights at the expense of rights for others, some of his foreign policy, but...

    He rescued this country from financial ruin, a deep depression had he listened to naysayers who disagreed with him bailing out Wall Street, Banks, Insurance Companies, helping with the Housing Crisis, providing healthcare for millions of Uncovered Americans...

    Strengthening job creation that we see today (that Trump takes full credit for)...

    Allowing federal financial aid for those seeking quick career changes (trade programs) like cosmology, pet grooming or vetinary assistant, etc.

    More Black Women started new businesses during his reign than any other group!

    Educational opportunities, healthcare (life-saving for many Americans), business opportunities for entrepreneurs and job creation (repairing infrastructure, government jobs, and companies like Amazon, Uber, Lyft, UPS, USPS, FedEx, trucking and tech jobs ) increased substantially during the Obama terms in office!

    No, didn't order the National Guard to help stop the violence in cities like Chicago with shoot to kill orders of black teen and adult predators who rob, steal and kill!

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    Thanks TMW. This conversation about Trump vs. Obama should be closed.
    Anywho, people also have to remember that Chelsea Manning's sentence was commutated....s/he wasn't paroled. People got all upset because they thought s/he got off, but s/he served time. Obama said at the time the sentence was too long, too harsh. The same thing that 45 is saying about Gov. Blago.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    Manning wasn't paroled, his sentence was cut short. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/17/us/politics/obama-commutes-bulk-of-chelsea-mannings-sentence.html
    The same with Alice. Whether somebody deserves it more than another is subjective.
    I expect every celebrity who has a cause to ask for parole for somebody to now storm the WH, since they see how easy it is.

    Yep, what Trump is doing is counter to what he criticized Obama for doing -- paroling drug dealers.

    Disagree with you about pedophiles. Dr. Nassar was just sentenced to 40 life terms.

    Obama didn't like Kanye (look it up), Trump does.

    The ONLY reason Kim knew about Alice is because of a short documentary. Do you think KimK has time to research all prisoners and their history? People forget that JayZ made a documentary about the young black guy in Rikers, who is now dead. We only know about Celebs and their causes when it's broadcast. Many of them work behind the scenes.
    Stop comparing Obama to Trump and JayZ to KimK.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    OT: Do we know how KimK is going to rescue Kanye's foundation?

  • Moon Lee

    Thank you Kim West. Thank you Trump. Bless you Alice!

  • Yoni7

    Yep!

  • Well$$Well$$?

    Because he molested over 200 young girls since 1992. Of course he got everything but the kitchen sink thrown at him. I have a family member who's partner shot and killed someone and even he got 6 years. This lady being sentenced to life without parole for transmitting messages between drug dealers just shows there's a separate criminal justice system for brown and white folks.

    I'm just glad she is out and reunited with her family. And I'm glad Kim stepped up to the plate for this woman and her family.

    WHO IS ALICE JOHNSON?

    * Mother-of-five, grandmother-of-six and great-grandmother of one.

    * Sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole after being convicted of drug dealing in 1996.

    * It was her first conviction and some of her co-conspirators testified her against in exchange for plea deals.

    * Grew up in Olive Branch, Mississippi, and was married and pregnant by age 15.

    * In 1989, she and her husband divorced. Her life started to crumble as she struggled, as a single mother, to try and be financially stable for her five children. However, in 1990, because of a gambling addition, she was sacked by FedEx Corporation.

    * After filing for bankruptcy in 1991, Johnson lost her house. The next year, a scooter accident claimed the life of her youngest son, Cory.

    * It was while she was at rock bottom that Johnson became involved in a drug syndicate that imported cocaine into Memphis, Tennessee, where she acted as a go-between and passed on messages to drug dealers, relaying coded messages like 'everything is straight' by telephone.

    * While admitting to acting as a middle man for the drug traffickers, passing on the messages in code via telephone, Johnson claims she never directly sold drugs.

    While in prison for TWO DECADES she has tutored younger inmates and according to the warden has been a MODEL PRISONER. She is EXACTLY the kind of prisoner deserving of commutation, but for some "odd" reason, Obama (Mr. Hope and Change) had no interest in her plight.

    Thanks to PRESIDENT Trump, this woman can now return to her loving family.

    Also, thanks to Kim K for taking the time to make the request. What if some BLACK celebs spent less time bashing others and and actually started to use their fame to try to make a difference in the lives of other blacks? Imagine how much good they could accomplish.

  • NeverSurprised

    That is the responsibility of the black ELECTED OFFICIALS of Michigan, not Kim K.. They were elected, to work FOR their constituents. How about they spend a little less time calling the President names and see what they can get accomplished if they simply present their issues and negotiate with him.

    good morning Sandra. There is no record that Clinton herself or anyone within her campaign ever advanced the charge that Obama was not born in the United States. A review by our fellow fact-checkers at Factcheck.org reported that no journalist who investigated this ever found a connection to anyone in the Clinton organization.

    Clinton, herself, answered this very accusation after Trump's tweet during an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon. Lemon asked Clinton if she started a smear campaigns that Obama was born outside the United States.

    "That is – no. That is so ludicrous, Don. You know, honestly, I just believe that, first of all, it’s totally untrue, and secondly, you know, the president and I have never had any kind of confrontation like that," Clinton said. "You know, I have been blamed for nearly everything, that was a new one to me."

    if you being genuinely nice THANK YOU... If sarcastic FUCK YOU ??

  • TheOwley

    They got their get out of jail card, whatever you call it, commuted, shorted, pardoned, who cares. And actually no, it's not easy to get a presidential pardon. I'm sure there are hundreds if not thousands of requests per year already. Surely you were aware of this right. So you are not saying anything new. Every president gets requests. I think the perfect answer will be that at the end of his term individuals will be considered. This request and release was significant because you don't jail someone for life as this woman was. Murderers get less time. And it's a shame it was KKW that took up an interest in her.

    I don't compare Obama to Trump whom I find quite offensive and repulsive! Many people have been negatively influenced by his term in office! People are free to be their ugly, mean-spirited, racist, bigoted selves!

    Obama's legacy continues and he will do even greater things, but he rescued this country from the brinks of a total financial collapse, a deep 1927 like depression, among other great things, even with his flaws!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    These celebrities strategized about who and what they will focus on, what will serve their personal agendas, most not from the heart, but as a business, brand and corporation, "Good Will" promotion and advertising!

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    You too lol ????

  • Rhyme and Reason

    You're right! Recent college grads caught it during the G W Bush administration, along with substantial student loan debt!

    Trump is OBSESSED with Obama, a black man who won 2 presidential elections, and seeks to destroy his legacy, NOT HAPPENING!
