Kris Jenner had some strong words for President Obama after he took aim at her daughter Kim Kardashian and rapper-boyfriend Kanye West. The president, who has previous decried West as a �jackass” when the rapper famously upstaged Taylor Swift, was interviewed by David Blum for Kindle Singles. In the interview, Obama spoke about the American Dream, which he opined used to include a good home, job, education and the possibility of higher education. However, he said that these days the likes of Kardashian and West had distorted the American Dream in a way that he believes negatively affects the younger generation. �I do think what’s shifted is a notion that the wealthier you are, the more conspicuous consumption you engage in. The more successful you are, the more

society should stay out of your way as you pursue the bigger house or the fancier jet or the bigger yacht,” Obama said. �Were there things that all of us might have liked to have? Sure. But partly, I think, there also has been a shift in culture. We weren’t exposed to things we didn’t have in the same way kids these days are. There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous,” the president 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.” Jenner, for one, took what he said to heart. On the Friday episode of her talk show �Kris,” the Kardashian momager, 57, addressed Obama’s quotes regarding her daughter and her daughter’s boyfriend’s affluence with co- host and E! personality Terrence Jenkins. �‘They’re influencing a generation of youngsters to be obsessed with wealth and celebrity,’” mama bear said, interpreting Obama’s statements. Kardashian, 32, and West, 36, famously spent $11 million on a 10,000-square-foot home in Bel-Air in January while Kardashian was pregnant. But Kardashian and her daughter North, who was born June 15, is currently residing at her mother’s sprawling Hidden Hills home while she and West tear down and custom rebuild their mansion. They’re reportedly gutting it and taking the Italian-style villa to up to 14,000 square feet. �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 reading the president’s quotes. �I was taught: Dream big, work hard and you could have whatever you wanted.” The American Dream, ladies and gentleman, as told by the Kardashians. �I bet the president has some friends with 10,000-square-foot houses 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,” Jenner said, referring to high-netting, star-studded fundraising parties thrown for him by the likes of A-listers George Clooney and Sarah Jessica Parker. Jenner said that she thought that it was �kind of remarkable in and of itself” that the president even mentioned her overexposed kin in the first place, yet she still continued. �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,” Jenner said. �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.”
