    Kim Kardashian Just Shut Down Every Damn Person Who Said Her Meeting With Trump Was A Publicity Stunt

    She also addressed the accusation that she's being used by Trump as a "political pawn."

    Last week, Kim Kardashian met with President Trump to discuss the pardoning of Alice Johnson, a 63-year-old woman serving a life sentence for a first-time nonviolent drug offence.

    And as a result, Trump granted clemency to Johnson this week, with her being released from prison on Wednesday.

    However, because Kim Kardashian cannot win, many people accused her of either supporting him, or using the case for publicity.

    Well, in a new interview, Kim has now shut down every damn person who accused her of using the situation as a publicity stunt.

    Speaking to CNN, Kim said that the notion she was using the situation as a PR stunt was "very false."

    She said: "That's very false. I could literally just walk outside and it'll be a ridiculous story. I think these days I'm trying to dodge [media attention] and stay away from it."

    Kim went on to say that she wouldn't have spent time away from her kids, or "risked her brand" for a publicity stunt either.

    She said: "I have kids. Why would I spent time away from my kids to pursue this just for a PR stunt which, for a lot of people, seemed like a risky move to take? If there was a possibility that it could hurt my brand, I wouldn't take that kind of a risk."

    And she concluded by saying that she doesn't believe Trump is now "using" her as a "political pawn" either.

    Kim said: "I think Kanye has already given him legitimacy. I don't think I'd be used. He heard me out and we got the job done, so what could he really use me for?"

    Go Kim.
