On Wednesday, President Trump commuted the life sentence of 63-year-old great-grandmother Alice Marie Johnson, who was convicted in 1996 on non-violent drug charges. Social media darling Kim Kardashian was instrumental in lobbying for Johnson’s freedom, and was photographed alongside Trump during her visit to the Oval Office in May.
But if this image of Donald Trump and Kim Kardashian together isn’t surreal enough for you, here are the 10 oddest and most infamous photos of presidents with celebrities ever caught on camera.
Ronald Reagan and Muhammad Ali
In 1983, “I am the Greatest” heavyweight boxing champion and activist Muhammad Ali visited the White House and President Ronald Reagan. Here we see the two personalities hamming it up for the cameras in the Oval Office. The two remained friends and Ali endorsed Reagan during his 1984 re-election campaign.
John F. Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe
Just a few months before her suspicious death, Marilyn Monroe attended a star-studded party in May 1962 with Robert Kennedy (left) and President John F. Kennedy (right). Earlier that evening, Monroe sang an infamous “Happy Birthday” to JFK at a Democratic fundraiser at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
It is the only known surviving photograph of JFK and Monroe pictured together, allegedly because the other photographs were confiscated by the Secret Service.
Barack Obama and Justin Bieber
Remember when Justin Bieber had a wholesome teenybopper image? You have to go all the way back to 2011, but believe it or not, Bieber took part in the annual “Christmas in Washington” celebration that year, where he shook hands with President Obama, leading to this surreal image.
Richard Nixon and Elvis Presley
The most requested photo in the history of the U.S. National Archives is this photo of President Richard Nixon meeting with Elvis Presley in the Oval Office in 1970. The meeting lasted about half an hour. Presley asked for a Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs badge and actually received one from the president. According to Priscilla Presley’s memoir, Elvis wanted the badge because he believed it would allow him to “legally enter any country both wearing guns and carrying any drugs he wished.”
Ronald Reagan and Michael Jackson
Back in the time when Michael Jackson was on top of the world following his Thriller album, he was honored in 1984 by President Ronald Reagan for his contribution to the government’s drunk driving awareness program. He is pictured here with the president and first lady Nancy Reagan, who founded the “Just Say No” campaign to drugs and alcohol.
Gerald Ford and George Harrison
President Gerald Ford’s son Jack arranged a meeting between his father and former Beatles star and activist George Harrison at the White House in 1974.
As can be seen in this additional photo of the meeting, also present were Billy Preston, the musician commonly known as “The Fifth Beatle,” and Ravi Shankar, the musician who taught Harrison how to play the sitar and the father of Grammy Award-winning musician and singer Norah Jones.
John F. Kennedy and Frank Sinatra
Entertainer, actor and “one take” singer Frank Sinatra had a highly-publicized but short-lived friendship with JFK. Sinatra and his Rat Pack buddies campaigned for JFK, and he is even credited with introducing Kennedy to Marilyn Monroe. Sinatra organized JFK’s Inaugural Gala in Washington D.C., held the night before he was sworn into office.
Ronald Reagan and Charlton Heston
Not only were President Reagan and Charlton Heston old Hollywood buddies as well as actors, Heston was, for many years, head of the National Rifle Association.
Bill Clinton and Bob Hope
President Clinton met legendary comedian and actor Bob Hope in 1995 during ceremonies honoring recipients of the National Medal of the Arts. As much as he was loved as a true American entertainer, Hope was actually born in England.
