The 39-year-old reality star and makeup mogul sat down for an interview on the new season of Netflix’s My Next Guest Needs No Introduction hosted by the 73-year-old TV personality.
During their interview, David brought up Kim working with the White House on criminal justice reform.
If you forgot, Kim worked with the Trump administration back in 2018 to grant clemency to Alice Marie Johnson after she spent two decades behind bars of a life sentence.
“Trust me, everyone called me and said, ‘Don’t you dare step foot in that White House or your reputation is done,’” Kim shared with David, according to the Daily Beast. “And I said, ‘I have to step foot in there or these people’s lives don’t have a chance.’”
Kim added, “Hopefully, for the next multiple administrations, I’ll be working with the White House, helping them with clemencies.”
“But see, your good work is overwhelming,” David replied. “It’s a positive force that diminishes what I consider to be unacceptable behavior by the president.”
Kim didn’t recognize any of Trump‘s “unacceptable behavior,” but she did answer more questions from David about the president.
“But do you feel that what is being done on behalf of sentencing reform now via this current administration in any way allows the balance of democracy back in a corridor of viability?” David also asked.
“Well, I have no idea what you just said,” Kim replied, which led to laughs from the audience.
“I’m grateful for what you’re doing, but it doesn’t make me feel any better about the current administration,” David said, to which Kim replied, “I understand that.”
Kim also went on to say she’s “extremely grateful” for the administration’s work on criminal justice reform and she’s determined to “stay focused” on her goals.
Also during the interview, Kim said, “I know who I’m voting for,” but did not reveal who specifically.
Season three of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction will be released on Netflix on Wednesday, October 21 – see what other stars David Letterman will be sitting down with!
