When asked by Baldwin if she thought Johnson would still be in prison if Kanye wasn’t a Trump supporter, Kim answered, “I do believe she would still be in prison. We’ve (spoken) about this a few times. Alice always says if it wasn’t for Kanye speaking up in support of Trump, then she would still be in jail.”
During their interview, Baldwin and Kardashian also spoke about her marriage to the Yeezus rapper and how they have kept their marriage solid with different political views.
“I let him be who he wants to be,” Kardashian said. “I let him have his own views and opinions, even if they’re different than mine. I grew up in a household where … we would always just talk about it and be open about it and it was really OK to have different views. For me, I think it’s just about having an open mind.”
“We definitely have conversations if I don’t understand something, in private,” she continued. “And it goes the same with him and me.”

Kardashian found herself in the headlines when she met with Trump in June to release Johnson from prison. Johnson was sentenced to life in prison for cocaine trafficking, though it was her first offense. She served 21 years in prison before being freed later that month.
