I’m not gonna lie: originally, I pegged today as a slow news day, meant to allow everyone to rest up for tomorrow when we all get to devolve into a mass of hysteria as we watch Lindsay Lohan traipse in and out of court with no punishment for her actions. But then this gem descended from upon high and lo, I knew it to be His work. In an interview with iVillage, Michelle Obama said in no real uncertain terms that Barack Obama hates the Kardashians and thinks they’re terrible role models for children. I’m not sure whether to laugh or just go “Well A-DOY” here, so I’ll just do both. The Huffington Post reports:
“Barack really thinks some of the Kardashian – when they watch that stuff – he doesn’t like that as much,” she said, “but I sort of feel like if we’re talking about it, and I’m more concerned with how they take it in – what did you learn when you watched that. And if they’re learning the right lessons, like, that was crazy, then I’m like, okay.”
So, Malia and Sasha watch the Kardashians as a precautionary lesson. Makes sense, and assures us that Kim wasn’t on a political mission while visiting the Middle East. The whole thing does, however, make us curious as to how the President felt when he had to welcome Khloe and Lamar to the White House in 2010 when he greeted the then-NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers.
So basically, Obama doesn’t want his daughters watching a bunch of whores get into contrived faux-conflict over shit that doesn’t really matter? Him and every other competent parent. Hell, the Kardashians should be used as some sort of litmus test for child bearing.
Fertility Doctor: Before I can begin working with you to help you conceive children, I have to ask: would you ever let your son or daughter watch a fake reality show where three skanks in raggedy-ass leopard print dresses whined for an hour?
Prospective Parents: Yes, yes we would!
Fertility Doctor: I see … *Punches both in the fun stuff* The state requires me to do that. Gene pool saved!
