Kris Jenner Lashes Out At President Obama
Kris Jenner is blasting President Obama for disparaging remarks he made about her daughter, Kim Kardasian and Kanye West. Jenner rushed to Kim and Kanye's defense on her new talk show, Kris.
On her show, Jenner said, “I find it so odd that he's picking on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Well, 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.”
Jenner is upset about an interview the president just gave for an Amazon.com Kindle singles Ebook. He bemoans that the American dream is changing, saying: "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."
Jenner said, “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 could have whatever you wanted.”
Interestingly, some of Jenner’s edgier comments only appear online, and were edited out of the show that aired nationally. Online her Obama comments run five-and-a-half minutes, but less than two-and-a-half minutes actually aired in the show.
In one clip that did not air, she suggests that Obama, who's vacationing at a 5,000 square-foot mansion in Martha’s Vineyard, is a hypocrite for noting that Kim and Kanye live in a 10,000 square-foot house.
She said, “I bet the president has some friends with 10,000 square-foot houses and that he wouldn't mind going over there when he was asking them to have a party for him while he was campaigning for dollars to run for president.”
A spokesperson for Jenner's show said the segment was cut down because it was too long, not because of what Jenner said.
The controversy comes as a memorable picture shows the president golfing as he began his week-long vacation on Martha’s Vineyard.
Meanwhile, a rodeo clown is under fire for wearing an Obama mask while an announcer asked spectators if they wanted to see Obama run down by a bull. The rodeo at the Missouri State Fair is being blasted by none other than the state's republican lieutenant governor, who tweeted: "We are better than this." State fair officials call it "inappropriate" saying it "does not reflect the opinions or standards" of the fair. The governor has weighed in and called the stunt disrespectful and offensive.
