I'm a bit lazy so it's more easy to find a weirdo to say it for me. I wonder why the other posters don't give a fuck about this?
Eh, I enjoy complaining anyway, especially in increasingly over the top ways. So feel free to keep posting your various flavors of internet weirdos and ignore me, that's what most sane people do.

Kim Kardashian has revealed she has begun a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in the US, with hopes of becoming a lawyer in 2022.
The reality TV star says she made the decision to pursue a legal career in 2018.
Last year, she met with President Donald Trump and successfully campaigned to have 63-year-old Alice Marie Johnson released from jail.
She says her experiences at The White House inspired her decision.
"The White House called me to advise to help change the system of clemency," she tells Vogue magazine in a new interview.
Clemency is when someone is pardoned from a crime they are accused of having committed and it is declared that they are not guilty.
In America, the President can grant clemency to anyone convicted under federal law.
"I'm sitting in the Roosevelt Room with, like, a judge who had sentenced criminals and a lot of really powerful people and I just sat there, like, Oh - I need to know more," Kim says.
"I would say what I had to say, about the human side and why this is so unfair. But I had attorneys with me who could back that up with all the facts of the case."

Kim says choosing to pick up a new career was something she had to think "long and hard" about but that she knew she always wanted to "do more".
"It's never one person who gets things done; it's always a collective of people, and I've always known my role, but I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society," she says.
"I just felt like the system could be so different, and I wanted to fight to fix it, and if I knew more, I could do more."

As part of her apprenticeship, Kim will need to do 18 hours of supervised study each week and will shadow two mentor lawyers - Jessica Jackson and Erin Haney.
Kim's work with grandmother Alice Marie Johnson secured her release from a 1996 life sentence for cocaine trafficking, when Donald Trump intervened.
He commuted her crime, this means her conviction still stands, but Alice had her sentence swapped for a lighter one.
She was immediately released because of time she'd already served.
In 2017, Kim was among a number of celebrities who spoke in support of Cyntoia Brown.
She was jailed for life in 2006 at the age of 16 for shooting dead a man she said solicited her for sex. Prosecutors said it was robbery.
Other stars including Rihanna, comedian Amy Schumer and NBA star LeBron James also supported her case.
Cyntoia was released earlier this year.
I think there maybe something to this ClownWorld thing...

Oh Joy, because what we need is a 'celebrity trend-setter' making it fashionable to involve themselves in the legal process, ever since Serial blew up I've been waiting for this to happen, no doubt this is the first of many.

I'm sure she will take this very seriously and when (not if) she completes four years of training I'm sure she will represent all races and genders. What's perhaps most important to note is that her being in court will have absolutely zero impact on proceedings.

The one redeeming factor here is the inevitable TV spin-off with Kim and Judge Judy

You know what? She may be a hollywood piece of shit but she has been running a successful marketing brand for all kinds of products based on her name alone for like 15 years, starting on nothing more than a sex tape. I bet she's actually pretty qualified to be a lawyer if she puts her mind to it.

What I look forward to is my feminazi drinking partner who will scoff at me for thinking she can't be a lawyer so I can say "no she probably can, I think you can't".

I applaud this display of filial love.

In order to purge her father’s reputation of being the most incompetent defence attorney ever seen in a televised trial, Kim will devote four years of her life to getting licensed to perform even worse.

Or maybe she will specialise in matrimonial. The tribe must need in-house counsel on all those divorces by now.

I don't fault her. She wants to do something worthwhile with her life; it just took her a while to get there. She's doing way better than her full sisters, who are almost 40 single mothers with very embarrassing baby daddies. She's had some embarrassments too, but handled them expertly. The sex tape could have made her a laughing stock, but she got on top of it. People still mention it but it's more of a joke at this point, not a scandal. It didn't wreck her career like it wrecked Paris Hilton's. If anything, getting on top of the story jump-started her career.

I'm interested in seeing how this turns out. She's married to Kayne West, who, despite his faults, is an extremely driven and focused person. Maybe he sees some similar qualities in Kim, that we, the public, never see. Her quotes about how "easy" she finds the law tests seem a little too flippant to be truthful for me, but who knows, maybe it's true. I want to know if she is more than just a huge ass pretty face.
