It's a known fact that President Obama is not the biggest fan of Kim Kardashian or her boyfriend/baby's father, Kanye West.
But the president's latest critique has reached the ears of momager extraordinaire Kris Jenner, and this time she's biting back.
On her new daytime show, Jenner brought up Obama's remarks about her daughter during an interview for the Amazon Kindle store. He was discussing what he sees as a distorted understanding of what it means to be well-off and successful, and he thinks that reality TV stars like Kim K. have brought about that cultural shift.
In his day, "there was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous," the president said. "Kids weren't monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow was the mark of success."
In Jenner's opinion, Obama "basically said that they're influencing a generation of youngsters to be obsessed with wealth and celebrity," she said, going on to quote his comments.
"I wasn't aware that you could only set the bar so high, and that we could only dream so big," she said. "I was taught dream big, work hard, and you can have whatever you wanted."
And then there's this thought that came to Jenner: "I bet the president has some friends with 10,000 square foot houses. And you probably wouldn't mind going over there, Mr. President, while you were asking them to have a party for you when you were campaigning for dollars to run for president. I find it so odd that he's picking on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West."
She also had a few corrections to make, pointing out that "Kanye West, first of all, doesn't go on vacation, ever, and Kim Kardashian is the hardest working young lady in the world. She never sleeps, she never stops, she never slows down, and works so hard for what she's got. I started thinking about her 10,000 square foot house, and I thought 'Wow, her job affords her to live in her 10,000 square foot house.' And I think, if I'm not mistaken, that Mr. President's job affords him to live in a 55,000 square foot house."
It is impressive that Obama would know details about Kimye, given that his wife, First Lady Michelle Obama, has said that he doesn't care for his daughters, Malia and Sasha, to watch the E! show "Keeping Up with the Kardashians." (And we all know what he thinks about West - after all, he's called the man a jacka** twice.)
