Kim Kardashian & Alice Johnson Sit Down for Joint Interview

Kim Kardashian jetting to Memphis to meet recently released prisoner Alice Johnson for first time

Johnson and Kardashian are slated to appear together on Thursday's episode of the "Today" show.

In one video, Kardashian said, "Alice has never used filters before, so I'm showing her the ropes".

Johnson, who was jailed in 1996 for drug trafficking, has said she turned her life around in the slammer and decided that she wasn't "going to just do time or let time do me". "I was amazed, too".

She first called Ivanka Trump and eventually secured a meeting with President Trump himself.

Cape Town - Kim Kardashian has officially met Alice Marie Johnson - the woman she fought clemency for.

As for Kardashian, she eventually had a meeting to take at the Oval Office on, coincidentally, on Johnson's birthday.

Johnson admitted she had no idea who Kim was when the reality star made it her mission to help free the 63-year-old. She said she wants to continue working on pardoning and helping others whose stories are similar to Johnson's.

After her initial opening wisecrack, Kardashian West says she and the commander in chief "got focused".

Kim visited the White House in May to meet with Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, who is overseeing the administration's push to overhaul the nation's prison system.

"Thank you is not big enough, I have to walk it out, I have to live my thank you out", Johnson said.

"People have been asking me, 'Are you getting into politics?' and no, I'm still doing me", she noted. Johnson said of her desperation. So, she started to do her homework, gathering whichever magazines she could find to learn about the mogul.

Grateful for the compassion: After learning of Johnson's commutation last Wednesday, June 6, the star tweeted her reaction, writing: 'Best news ever! "I hope maybe this inspires more people to talk to the people in power, that you can have an effect over them for the greater good of other people".

A few minutes after meeting, both Kim and Alice said about one another: "Love this woman!" "I love this lady", Johnson replies. "This, like, fulfilled my heart, and so since I feel so fulfilled, why would I stop that?" "My life is completely intertwined forever with those who have been left behind".
