Winning legal trivia games in your spare time may not get you any brownie points for law school, but what about winning a legal game against the one and only Hillary Clinton?
Ahead of the release of Clinton’s upcoming Apple TV+ docuseries, Gutsy, the American politician sat down with People Magazine to discuss how she felt about losing 11-4 against Kim Kardashian, our talented aspiring attorney.
“I think Kim has an unfair advantage,” Clinton stated, to which her daughter, Chelsea Clinton, added, “Kim has studied more recently than you.”
Being the amazing woman that she is, Hillary Clinton didn’t just accept defeat from Kim Kardashian with the utmost elegance and grace (and a little bit of humor), she also went on to shower the American reality star with nothing but adoration.
How Hillary Clinton feels about Kim Kardashian’s legal journey
After a few trials and errors, Kim Kardashian officially passed her baby bar late last year. Her fans didn’t hesitate to celebrate her achievement, especially after knowing how badly she desired to walk in her late father’s, Rob Kardashian, footsteps to become an attorney. And just like her fans, Hillary Clinton also shared a few words of praise.
“She worked so hard (on the bar) and persevered,” Clinton expressed.
And it’s because of Kardashian’s perseverance that Clinton didn’t want her Gutsy interview with Kardashian to be about surface-level things. Instead, she wanted to discuss more pressing matters with the 41-year-old celebrity. Namely, the unfair American justice system.
“We didn’t interview her about fashion … her many lines of commerce … her personal life,” Clinton stated. “We interviewed about what she was doing to help get people who were unjustly or unfairly incarcerated have a second chance.”
Clinton’s kind words for Kardashian are not unwarranted in any way, for, to this very day, Kardashian is still working hard to free those who are imprisoned because of discrimination. She even took to her Twitter to write a simple but effective “#FreeGunna” to advocate for the release of Young Gunna, an American rapper currently on trial for racketeering.
The advocacy of Young Gunna’s case is just one of the many examples of why Hillary Clinton chose Kim Kardashian as one of the many powerful women to include in her empowering series, Gutsy. And it’s also why Clinton saw it as more of an honor to lose to Kardashian in a legal trivia game.
“I was really intrigued by how well she did,” Clinton told People Magazine. “I wanted to put the spotlight on her, not that she needs it, but she worked really hard to get that.”
