Kim Kardashian beats Hillary Clinton in legal knowledge quiz
Reality star turned criminal justice reform lawyer Kim Kardashian beat Hillary Clinton in a legal knowledge contest while filming ‘Gutsy,’ Clinton’s upcoming women’s documentary series with her daughter Chelsea Clinton, reports People.
The mother-daughter duo sat down with Kardashian, who announced in December that she had passed her first “baby bar” exam, to discuss her criminal justice work, which the former Democratic presidential nominee and secretary of state called it “impressive”.
“She’s very aware of where her stardom can make a positive difference and where she can make a negative difference,” Clinton said of the mogul.
Clinton added, “She never wants to make a negative difference, so being judicious and thoughtful about when, where and how she engages was really impressive to us. I want, even beyond this series, to do everything I can to help him with this work.
Kardashian showcased her “impressive” knowledge by winning the quiz contest, which consisted of questions on topics including the use of deadly force, 11-4.
Clinton, who has a law degree from Yale, joked that her loss was beyond humbling.
“Oh, that was heartbreaking!” she told People.
Chelsea Clinton defended her mother, saying her loss appeared to be the result of reaction time.
“Sometimes I could see my mom knew what the answer was, but she wasn’t hitting the buzzer in time,” the writer and global health advocate said in a video clip posted by People.
Clinton said she was also intrigued by Kardashian’s performance.
“Mom, you made a good effort,” said Chelsea Clinton.
Kardashian has used her celebrity status to draw attention to several cases, including pushing for the imprisoned father of a school shooting victim in Uvalde, Texas to be allowed to attend the funeral of her child in June.
‘Gusty,’ based on the Clintons’ 2019 book ‘The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience,’ is set to premiere September 9 on Apple TV+.
