“I find it so odd that he’s picking on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West,” Jenner said on her talk show recently, before starting in on the fact that Obama is taking a vacation week on Martha’s Vineyard.
“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.”
Obama had critiqued the over-the-top lives of West and Kardashian and the effect they have on today’s youth, when he explained, That Kids were 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:
“‘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 w
as] campaigning for dollars to run for president.'”
