Kendall Jenner’s one time special friend, A$AP Rocky, is still wasting away in a Swedish jail two weeks after getting arrested for aggravated assault. We should have known it wouldn’t be too long before The Moses of Calabasas, Kim Kardashian, would use her connections to The White House to intervene on his behalf. According to TMZ, Kanye West urged Kim to contact her good friend Jared Kushner who in turn alerted the President Of The United States about Rocky’s situation. Upon learning of Rocky’s plight (and probably after checking to see if he’d ever publicly criticized him), Donald Trump reportedly acknowledged that “something seemed amiss”. Considering Rocky’s own lawyer disputed that he was being held in inhumane conditions, some might say all of this is overkill. But Rocky is reportedly being held without a television! UPDATE: He probably does have a TV.
According to TMZ:
Our sources say Kim filled Jared in on what was happening, and Jared then took the info to Trump himself … whom, we’re told, acknowledged something seemed amiss.
In addition to Kim and Kanye, Kareem Lanier and Pastor Darrell Scott of the White House’s Urban Revitalization Coalition, also played a big role … helping to connect ASAP’s management directly with Kushner through a phone call.
We’re told Trump told Kushner he believed A$AP was being held unfairly, and wanted to help. As we reported, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo got involved and unleashed a few deputies in an attempt to get some action. A State Dept. member was supposed to arrive in Sweden Thursday. We’re told the State Dept. is now actively working to get A$AP out of jail, thanks in large part to Kim’s efforts.
And here I thought Donald Trump cared even less about black people than George W. Bush! But Trump obviously cares deeply about A$AP Rocky as much as his Third Best Black Friend Kanye cares about him (he’s actually tied at #3 with Candace Owens. They both moved up in the rankings after Omarosa was fired. #1 remains Ben Carson with Sheriff David Clarke a close 2nd).
Rocky’s lucky he’s in tight with the Kardashian-Wests. Not a lot of other people are rushing to his defense. This may be due in part to remarks he made on The Breakfast Club during the Ferguson protests over the police shooting of Mike Brown (via XXL):
“I don’t wanna talk about no fucking Ferguson and shit because I don’t live over there! I live in fucking Soho and Beverly Hills. I can’t relate. I’m in the studio; I’m in these fashion studios; I’m in these bitches’ drawers. I’m not doing anything outside of that. That’s my life.”

Welp, now he’s in one of those little fake bedroom setups they got at Ikea with the cardboard TVs. And probably not even for very much longer now that his SoHo and Beverly Hills friends have intervened.
