Appearing on CNN Thursday, Kim Kardashian West reacted President Donald Trump’s decision to commute the life sentence of Alice Johnson, a non-violent drug offender who spent over 20 years in prison.
However, CNN seemed determined to probe Kardashian to see if she would bash Trump.
CNN's Van Jones asked about critics who question the president’s motives, asking Kardashian if she thought Trump was only “using” her as a “political pawn.”
“You have kind of given him legitimacy, you might be in a campaign video,” Jones added.
Kardashian pushed back and argued the most important thing is that she and Trump “got the job done."
“I think Kanye has already given him legitimacy in that way, so I don’t think I would be used. At the end of the day, he heard me out, we got the job done,” Kardashian said.
Upon her release from prison, Johnson broke down in tears and thanked President Trump for giving her a second chance at life.
“I want to, first of all, thank my Lord and Savior, thank Jesus Christ. Without him, I can do nothing. But with him, I can do everything," she said. "I want to thank President Donald John Trump. Hallelujah!"

In another interview, Johnson sent a more personalized message to President Trump. She promised him that she was going to make him "proud" that he commuted her sentence.
"I would tell President Trump, 'Thank you so much. That I am going to be that one that is going to make you so proud.' And I hope that my life encourages him to do this for others too," she said.
