Late night host Jimmy Kimmel mocked President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump while talking to Kim Kardashian, but she refused to join in on the bashing.
'I have nothing bad to say...'
In the interview on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Monday, the late night critic of the president ask Kardashian to explain how she ended up in the Oval Office seeking a pardon for a woman with a life sentence.
Kardashian related that she was in a nude photo shoot when the president called, and Kimmel said that had she told him she was naked at the time, he would have freed the entire prison. Kardashian laughed, but didn't add anything to his joke.
Kimmel then joked that first lady Melania Trump needed to be pardoned and freed by President Trump. Kardashian didn't join in on this attack either.
When Kimmel asked if her husband Kanye West still supported the president, Kardashian responded that he did.
She explained that Kanye West "doesn't necessary agree with the policies, he likes his kind of his personality and how he made it to be president when everyone really underestimated him."
"He's not political so he doesn't really dig deep into what's going on," she added.
"I have nothing bad to say about the president and he's done something amazing and so I am very focused," she said to Kimmel.
"Right because you still have people on the list!" Kimmel mocked, referring to other people she wanted Trump to consider for a presidential pardon.
Kardashian kept reiterating that she was hopeful for more interactions with Trump in order to advocate for good causes, even as Kimmel continued to joke at the expense of the president.

Trump commuted the life sentence of Alice Johnson because of the campaign by Kardashian. Johnson had spent decades in prison for the nonviolent drug crimes she was charged with. Kardashian faced criticism for meeting with the president at the Oval Office and thereby "legitimizing" his presidency.
