In an interview with CNN's Van Jones, Kim Kardashian West made a few things clear, including the fact that it was her husband Kanye who started this whole ordeal with Trump, not her.
Both Kim and Kanye have been making headlines lately in their dealings with the president. While some of the husband and wife's presidential encounters have on their faces been for a good cause, like Kim meeting with the 45 to discuss prison reform, all of it has been questionable.
One of the blessings of this is Alice Marie Johnson's prison release. While that doesn't even scratch the surface of the necessary changes to America's prison system, it was a victory for Johnson and her family.
Following this victory, Kardashian West sat down with Jones to discuss the entire situation. The interview started with Kim revealing how she felt when she got a fateful call from an "unknown" number that turned out to be the White House and taking a trip to the Oval Office.
The mother of three admits that initially, she was "starstruck."
"I have to say, I never get starstruck. I was starstruck over the Oval Office," she admitted.
Specifically, Jones asked Kardashian West if she believes she has given Trump "legitimacy" by speaking with him, and whether he may attempt to use her as a "political pawn" going forward.
KKW has a simple answer, pointing the finger at her husband.
"I think Kanye's already given him legitimacy you know, in that way," Kardashian responded.
In May, Kanye went on an extended pro-Trump Twitter rant which resulted in both celebrities and ordinary folk alike coming at his neck. In response, Kardashian West took to Twitter to defend her husband, promising to "always ride for my man."

Well, we hope the wheels haven't fallen off already, 'cause it seems she threw him under the bus.
"At the end of the day, he heard me out," Kardashian continued in discussing Donald Trump. "We got the job done, so I don't think ... what could he really use me for?"
Hmm... probably a whole lot.
Regardless, we're thankful for Ms. Alice Marie Johnson being home.
