"I can assist an attorney for 3 years and just take the bar," Kim tells Van Jones, who also asks if she's after the presidency.
During her Van Jones interview, which aired in full on CNN Saturday, the reality star opened up about how the experience tapped into a more serious side of her she's willing to continue exploring.
When Jones first asked Kardashian if running for president was among her future endeavors, she shied away from the possibility, saying, "Oh, I don't think that's even on my mind."
"Trump's president," Jones pointed out. "It could happen."
"I know. That's why Kanye loves him -- it's the idea that anything can happen. I guess never say never," Kim replied, adding that she didn't want her comment to spark exaggerated headlines. "That's not what I'm going for. I just want to help, starting one person at a time. I think sometimes if more people would just put their personal feelings aside and talk about really important issues that have to be discussed, then so much more can get done."
Jones warned the reality star that "politics is rough," which Kardashian did not deny.
"I am never gonna claim to be the most political person, but I know that I had a feeling inside when I helped someone," she said, adding that if it weren't for "the long college process," she'd love to practice law.
Following the success of her involvement with Johnson's case, Kardashian said she told her personal attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, "Can we start a firm? Let's do this. Let's get the best people together. If I can just be the vessel, I can bring awareness."
Jones brought up Kim's late father, Robert Kardashian, and asked her if the desire to practice law ran in her blood.
"I really think that it is," she said. "If there wasn't the long college process, I would be an attorney. But I researched that, in the state of California, I can assist an attorney for 3 years and just take the bar, so you never know."
