Kris Jenner took offense when President Barack Obama said people shouldn’t look up to her daughter Kim Kardashian as a role model.
Earlier this summer, the president told Amazon that he feels as though the nation has become obsessed with celebrity, which has shifted what many people use to measure their own successes.
The American Dream involved some pretty basic stuff: A home you could call your own. A good job where you felt some security. A good education, and the ability to get a higher education if you wanted to pursue it,” he said. “People felt if they worked hard they could get there.”
As an example, President Obama said that Kim and her babydaddy Kanye West are just two of the stars that have shifted people’s attention to the more superficial aspects of achievement.
“I don’t think people went around saying to themselves, ‘I need to have a 10,000-square-foot house,’” he said. “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.”
Well Kris had a little something to say about it when Terrence J dropped by “The Kris Jenner Show” to co-host. In her opinion, simply having the basics is a good start, but she doesn’t believe that should keep anyone from getting more if they can.
“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?” Kris questioned her audience.
Then she got a little more personal in her response, suggesting that President Obama was wealth-shaming some of the very donors he leaned on when it came time for his re-election campaign. “I bet the president has some friends with 10,000 square feet house. 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,” she said.
“I find it so odd that he’s picking on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West,” she added. “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.”
The president and his family do live in a huge house, but what Kris failed to mention is that much of the building is made up of rooms where matters of international affairs are handled. The White House is where the president plans out a budget for the nation and welcomes foreign dignitaries.
