    President Trump's meeting with the reality show starlet to discuss the weighty issue of prison reform spawned a collection of poignant and hilarious commentary on social media.

    Thanking the president following their conversation on Wednesday, Kardashian tweeted that her visit was aimed at freeing Alice Johnson, a 63-year-old Memphis woman serving life in prison for a first time, non-violent drug offense. 

    President Trump, for his part, tweeted back a photo from his get-together with Kardashian, calling it a "great meeting."

    Despite the serious nature of their discussion, Twitter users couldn’t get over the fact that two former reality show stars were talking policy about an important issue like the US war on drugs.

    Others, inspired by a New York Daily News front page dubbed "The Only Kim He Could Get" and the New York Post's even more scandalous "Kim Thong Un Pitches Prez on Prison Reform," recalled the uncertain status of Trump's expected meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

    Some users simply joked about the picture accompanying Trump's post, coming up with an assortment of captions or editing it in Photoshop, with hilarious results.

    Finally, amid the arguably justified criticism over Kardashian's lack of qualifications for talking policy were also a few tweets urging the internet to give credit where credit is due.
