Kris Jenner, the mother of the Kardshian clan, is none too pleased about recent remarks made by President Obama. Specifically, Obama’s remarks about her daughter, Kim Kardashian, and Kim’s boyfriend/baby-daddy, Kanye West. In a recent interview with David Blum (for Kindle Singles), the president commented on the American dream saying:
Part of the American dream — even if you’re poor, or lower-middle class — involves yearning for tangible things you can’t afford. Were there things, when you were growing up, that you yearned for that you couldn’t afford? There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous.
He went on to critique what consider extravagant lifestyles of Kim and Kanye:
Kids weren’t monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success.
After hearing Obama’s remarks, on her show, Kris directly spoke to the president suggesting that he was a hypocrite (my words, not hers) and that it is unfair for him to poke at both Kim and Kanye:
I wasn’t aware that you could only set the bar so high. And that we could only dream so big. I was taught dream big, work hard and you can have whatever you wanted…Right? And another thing…Wow, I bet the President has some friends with 10,000 square feet houses and you probably wouldn’t mind going over there Mr President while you’re 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…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.
Her job, affords her to live in a 10,000 square foot house. And I think, if I’m not mistaken, Mr President’s job affords him to live in a 55,000 square foot house. So basically, my house would fit in his entry….You poke at someone for living a lifestyle…I’m sure when he grew up his dream was one day, ‘I want to be the president of the united states.’ We all wanna aspire. I just don’t think it’s a bad thing to wanna be our best and do our best and have nice things….Everyone has their own thing that they strive to be. Wherever that leads you…
