Kris Jenner takes on Obama

It's hard enough to believe that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are subjects that President Obama has to even think about in passing, let alone discuss during interviews, and yet they are.

Obama made a few disparaging remarks about the couple recently, and it should surprise no one to learn that it didn't sit well with the Kardashian empire matriarch Kris Jenner.

On Friday's episode of her talk show "Kris," Jenner responded to Obama's critique of the over-the-top lives of West and Kardashian and the effect they have on today's youth, when he explained, "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."

And oh, boy, Jenner was not pleased.

"It's really great that people aspire to get a great job ... but I wasn't aware that you could only set the bar so high and that we could only dream so big," Jenner said after she read Obama's remarks aloud on her show. "I was taught: Dream big, work hard and you could have whatever you wanted."

Jenner then went on to suggest that the president was a bit of a hypocrite for noting that Kim and Kanye live in a 10,000 square foot home. Huffington Post Full story.
