Everyone is still wondering whether the meeting between US president Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is still happening, and earlier today, he met Kim. Only, it wasn’t Chairman Kim. Rather, the president had invited Kim Kardashian to the White House.
Both reality stars came together not to film an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, but to talk about something pretty serious – prison reforms. What sparked the discussion was the case of Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old grandmother who is serving a life sentence for a first-time non-violent drug offence.
Trump posted a tweet with a picture of Kim and him to commemorate the meeting, and unsurprisingly, it sent twitter users into a frenzy.

Twitter had a meltdown, not because they were talking about the case, but the fact that Kim had been the one who was invited to talk about it.
Some joked it happened because Trump was desperate to meet Chairman Kim.

Others ridiculed it by speculating that it will lead to even more ridiculous events happening in the future.
2016: Donald Trump is elected president
2018: Kim Kardashian discusses prison reform with the president
2020: Drake is appointed Secretary of Defense
2032: The ghost of Kurt Cobain is elected to his 3rd consecutive term as president. The world rejoices.

And this user reckoned Kim’s momager, Kris Jenner, was behind it.

OK, so Trump met Kim K. But what we need to know is, is Trump going to meet the Kim in Singapore after all?
