The women appeared together in an interview NBC's "Today" show aired Thursday after they met face to face for the first time.

"I just got off the most wonderful, emotional and incredible phone call with Alice, Kim and Alice's lawyers", Kardashian's attorney, Shawn Holley, told ET at the time.

Kardashian, who has been working on behalf of the grandma for months, was the first person to tell the nonviolent drug offender about her commutation back on June 6 but this will be the duo's first in person encounter. "It wasn't an instant thing". The two women had "a really great conversation about women", said Kardashian.

"I mean, I already knew just by talking to you on the phone and just seeing you in videos, but I mean, you are everything and more than I ever thought", Kardashian continues.

"I was like I can't believe we're in the Oval Office". "It was overwhelming in the most awesome way", she described her late May meeting with the president.

The cards sparked a lively debate on what the term "baby daddy" means to the black community. According to the Kansas City Star , the card is not exclusive to Target.

Speaking to Hoda Kotb about the moment Kim told her she was free, Alice said: 'I thought it was an attorney call, when my case manager was waiting on me, and it was. Flattery. Kardashian began the meeting by making a joke about "The Apprentice", the reality show that catapulted Trump to national fame.

"When she said that [I could go home], I went into full-fledged pentacostal holy dance", Johnson said. "He felt that it was the right thing to do".

Johnson was convicted in 1996 of conspiracy to possess cocaine and attempted possession of cocaine and spent a third of her life in prison. "I think I have to walk it out".

Kardashian West's husband, rapper Kanye West, has stirred controversy for his recent messages of support for Trump, sporting a "Make America Great Again" hat in April and calling the president his "brother". She was kind of quiet on the phone and I know her personality enough to know that she would have been screaming, or something. But Kardashian West didn't want to take too much credit for Johnson's release and acknowledged others who tried to help her over the years. "But I enjoy this".

"Y'all haven't stopped hugging, I did notice that", adds Kotb.
