It Turns Out Kim Kardashian's Meeting With Donald Trump Did NOT Go Well!

no title

So remember how after Kim Kardashian West met with Donald Trump to discuss prison reform, we heard nothing but how well the meeting went??

Well, that was some more Fake News from the most frequent creator of it.

Though both Trump and Kardashian had positive things to say, we're now hearing it may have been a huge waste of time for one side!

For Kim, the meeting was about prison reform and the pardoning of Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old grandmother who is serving life without parole for nonviolent drug trafficking in 1996 — her first offense to boot.

But Bloomberg News reports sources told them all Trump wanted to do was talk about how great it was she and hubby Kanye West had helped boost his numbers among black voters. Sounds like he wanted to spend some more time on the quid without actually considering the quo.

Speaking of self-centered, Trump did actually pardon someone the next day, but

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitik


Bye, Blago! Make sure to write!

And by that, we mean keep a journal or something so when you get out, you can hawk a book about losing a almost a decade and half of your life for being greedy.

Rod R. Blagojevich, the former governor of Illinois, was sentenced on today to 14 years in federal prison for 18 felony corruption convictions. That includes the time he tried to sell/trade President Obama's open Senate seat. The sentence wasn't exactly what the prosecutors were hoping for, but at least he got time to begin with.

Before leaving for prison life, he released this statement:

Woman Wants Out Of Blagojevich’s Jury So She Can Go See Oprah

Filed under: Legal MattersOprah Winfrey


If we were the judge, we would TOTALLY accept this as a valid excuse!

A potential juror on Rod Blagojevich’s corruption trial has asked to be excused from her duties because she has tickets to a taping of the Oprah Winfrey show on May 10.

Bet the judge has never heard that one before!

As this is the final season, the Assistant U.S. Attorney Reid Schar came to the woman's defense, especially since this tape date might very well end up being the day they film the final episode, which will air on May 25, 2011.

But so far, the judge hasn't been swayed to let the woman free from her civic duty, saying "everybody here knows that this juror will survive” if she doesn’t make it to the show.

Um, we wouldn't! We would be simply DEVASTATED! This is a once and a lifetime opportunity - literally! This will never happen again.

Have a heart, judge! There's like a billion other people to choose from! This woman isn't the one on trial! Do the right thing!

Blagojevich Convicted…Barely

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitik


Looks like the former Governor of Illinois is in luck!

Rod Blagojevich was convicted of giving false information to feds, but he got away with 23 other charges due to a Hung Jury!

The Jurors were in deliberation for 14 days, but they just couldn't come together to convict him on the major corruption charges. Good for you douchebag Blago, good for you!

Blago's more serious charges included racketeering, wire fraud, attempted extortion, and bribery.

Bribery, eh? We HOPE you didn't bribe any members of that jury, Blago. We really hope not.

What do U think of the verdict of the Blago trial?

Blago Jury Hung!

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikBarack Obama



The jurors in the corruption trial of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich sent a note to the judge that they might be deadlocked on some counts.

The jury is asking for guidance if they can't reach a unanimous decision even though they have made "a reasonable attempt."

The judge will be sending a note back to ask for clarification on which counts they are undecided on.

They are on the 11th day of trying to reach a verdict.

Blago pleaded not guilty to 24 accounts, including charges of trying to sell or trade President Barack Obama's Senate seat.

Shady, shady!
