It seems President Obama made a dangerous enemy when he suggested Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were examples of society’s obsession with celebrity. Obama made the comment that “what Kim Kardashian was wearing” is seen now as a “mark of success” in an interview with Amazon’s Kindle Singles.
Matriarch of the Kardashian clan Kris Jenner took personal offense to Obama’s remarks and decided to fight back on her daytime talk show, saying that President’s talk of Kim and Kanye flaunting their wealth is hypocritical.
“I bet the President has some friends with 10,000 square foot houses and that you 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,” she said.
Jenner also stressed that Obama’s remarks denote a certain amount of anti-capitalist sentiment: “I was taught, dream big, work hard, and you could have whatever you wanted.”
She also couldn’t let a dig Obama made about the size of Kim’s house go unmentioned.
“Wow, her job affords her to live in a 10,000 square foot house,” she continued. “And I think, if I’m not mistaken, that Mr. President’s job affords him to live in a 55,000 square foot house.”
