Some of the most interesting and unexpected things have been happening in the and to the White House lately. First Donald Trump became a president and from then on, it seems like anything can happen, and this particular statement definitely has no positive connotation attached to it.

Another thing that happened recently and contributes to this particular scenario is the little meet between Donald Trump and Kim Kardashian.

Yes, you read all of those words right and they do belong together. Mr. President met the Internet’s biggest celebrity to discuss prison reforms, something that Kim Kardashian is very passionate about. The two shared pictures from the event after which people actually felt that this indeed happened and they were not actually dreaming about the entire thing.

Reportedly, Kardashian has been advocating for Alice Marie Johnson — a 62-year-old woman serving a life sentence for a first-time non-violent drug offence, who needs a presidential pardon to be released — and Kardashian helped her get through. Later that evening, she tweeted, ” Happy Birthday Alice Marie Johnson. Today is for you”.

President Donald Trump too posted the picture and said how great it was meeting Kim K.

These particular tweets gathered a glut of memes and jokes on Twitter, which is pretty obvious. Here’s how Twitter reacted to this meet between Donald Trump and Kim Kardashian.

While all of these were funny to some extent and extremely harmless, one newspaper decided to take a different route on the story in order to come off more creative than anyone else. Their small experiments soon took a sexist turn and people started calling them out for saying some of the most absurd and uncalled for reaction from New York Post. They mocked Kim K as “Kim Thong Un” and referred to the meeting as “The Other Big Ass Summit” on its front page.

There’s no doubt that this was indeed an offensive reaction to the news and many came forward to say it like it was.

No matter how hilarious or unexpected the meeting was, the issue behind it was serious and Kim Kardashian is actually doing something good. Just because she’s a celebrity on social media who time and again gets herself into some or the other controversy doesn’t mean that she has no right to be voicing the issues that she believes in. After all, she is working for the life of a woman, someone who has been wrongly accused and might have to spend her entire life in the prison.
