Kim Kardashian meets Alice Marie Johnson for the first time

Kim Kardashian meets Alice Marie Johnson for the first time

Kardashian, 37, first heard about the 63-year-old woman's plight on social media last year and started conferring with her lawyers about what she could do to help.

"When Kim told me that I was being released, I started jumping and screaming and crying, and everyone else was crying", Johnson said during her June 7 "Good Morning America" appearance. "I was doing everything".

Last week, President Donald Trump granted Johnson clemency following a meeting with Kardashian to discuss prison reform and Johnson's possible pardon.

"To me, this has nothing to do with politics - this has to do with people", Kardashian West said.

"I first said that, 'I am here because I really want to know why you kicked Khloe off 'The Apprentice", Kardashian West said in a Thursday interview with "Today's" Hoda Kotb.

Some people cheered as they walked out. "Not a day, not on the worst day", she said.

The celeb was met with mixed reactions after her visit to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, with some calling Kim a "pawn" while others applauded her overcoming any ideological differences she has with the President for the better good.

Johnson said she didn't know her sentence had been commuted until Kardashian West broke the news to her in a call to her prison.

Last week, an emotional Johnson marveled at her freedom after more than two decades behind bars, grateful for a second chance - and craving seafood. "And everyone was amazed and I was amazed too".

That commutation came just days after Kardashian West, who said she became interested in Johnson after seeing a story about her months ago on Twitter, pleaded Johnson's case to Trump in the Oval Office.

Speaking to Hoda Kotb about the moment Kim told her she was free, Alice said: 'I thought it was an attorney call, when my case manager was waiting on me, and it was.

"It was overwhelming, in the most unbelievable way", the "Keeping up With the Kardashians" star added.

"I think his mind is being changed already", Kim replied. She was kind of quiet on the phone and I know her personality enough to know that she would have been screaming, or something. "This has fulfilled my heart, and so since I feel so fulfilled, why would I stop that?'"
