Kim Kardashian Meets Alice Johnson For The First Time And Teaches Her How To Use Snapchat
Kim Kardashian West finally met Alice Marie Johnson, the 63-year-old great-grandmother who she helped free after 21 years in prison.
The reality star flew to Memphis to see Alice and emotions were high when they finally saw each other face-to-face.
Johnson quickly thanked Kim for the pivotal role she played in getting President Trump to commute her life sentence. Kim was also incredibly taken with her new friend. She said,
”I love this woman. I mean I already knew just by talking to you on the phone and just seeing you in videos, but I mean you are everything and more than I ever thought.”
Speaking with Hoda Kotb from The TODAY Show, Johnson did admit that she had no idea who Kardashian West was when she first learned the television star was the one helping her out.
“As soon as I found out who she was, I started getting every magazine I could find,” she said. “I started reading everything that I could about her. And everyone was amazed. And I was amazed, too.”
Alice said she kept a picture of Kim and Kanye in her bible and prayed for them every night.
Kardashian West learned about Johnson’s story last year and shared her “unfair” situation in a tweet to her 60 million followers. The reality television superstar then decided to take up her case.
“Because I knew that I had the resources to do that. It became this mission that I just didn’t want to give up,” she explained to Hoda Kotb. “I mean, I think to some people it might seem like, ‘Okay, Kim made a phone call to the president, showed up.’ We had been in talks and working on this for seven months. And it wasn’t an instant thing. It was a lot of work.”
Kim did not only save Alice’s life she helped her start a new one. Johnson said she plans to thank Kardashian West, and President Trump, by setting an example through the way she will live the rest of her life.
“Thank you’ is not big enough. I think I have to walk it out. I have to walk my ‘thank you’ out. I have to live it out for her, for my family, for the supporters,” she said.
In addition to discussing Alice being free and her future plans, Kim decided to teach Alice something special before she took off: how to use Snapchat! Click below to check out a clip of Kim and Alice using Snapchat filters and box also press play above to watch the full interview.
