This photo of Kim Kardashian and Donald Trump might be the most cursed image of 2018
President Donald Trump on Wednesday tweeted what may be the most cursed image of the year: It’s a photo of him smiling at his Oval Office desk with a solemn Kim Kardashian West at his side. The internet is horrified and coping with jokes, of course.
“Great meeting with @KimKardashian today, talked about prison reform and sentencing,” the president wrote.

Kardashian’s White House visit was anticipated. She had been planning to meet with Trump and other officials, including Jared Kushner, to discuss prison reform and ask for the pardon of a 62-year-old woman in jail.

What wasn’t anticipated was the photo that came out of the Kardashian-Trump meet up.
They look like the Addams Family.

Daily Beast writer and critic Ira Madison III pointed out an intriguing coincidence: Kardashian’s appearance with Trump comes on the 20th day that first lady Melania Trump has been absent from the public eye.
Amid many conspiracy theories, the Kardashian photo brings up a new one: Has she been replaced?

Of course, there were many other jokes made about a famous reality star discussing prison reform with another famous reality star who just happens to be president, because that’s the only way to digest the hellish reality the photo represents.

There’s at least a ten percent chance Donald Trump is meeting with Kim Kardashian because he thinks she’s the leader of North Korea.

“So, here’s the pitch. It’s a fish out of water story but get this, he’s the president and we have Donald Trump play him. And then, here’s the kicker we have Kim Kardashian play his sassy but still incompetent Chief of staff. It’s like Veep meets The Purge.” pic.twitter.com/3EO9V87vAL

Even beyond the dystopian implications, there were other questions about the photo. For example, what’s up with Kardashian’s pants?

And when’s the beauty line dropping?

But here’s the biggest question: Why didn’t any of us see this coming?
