Kim Kardashian: More influential than Michelle Obama?

Kim Kardashian and Michelle Obama

When you start dating someone, it’s completely natural to talk about them way too much because of that nifty little initial excitement. But if you’ve been dating for a year and you still won’t shut up about your significant other, you’re compensating. Well, here’s Kanye West once again going on about Kim Kardashian in an interview and saying that she’s more influential than Michelle Obama. Somewhere in the White House, Michelle is crying non-influential tears into her organic salad because she never thought to turn her couch cover in an ill-fitting peplum dress. E! Online reports …

“There’s no way Kim Kardashian shouldn’t be on the cover of Vogue. She’s like the most intriguing woman right now. She’s got Barbara Walters calling her like everyday,” he said, noting that reality stars have often been overlooked by mainstream fashion magazines. “And collectively, we’re the most influential with clothing. No one is looking at what [Barack Obama] is wearing. Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a [bikini] pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day.”

First off, I think he got that backwards: I’m pretty sure Kim is calling Barbara Walters every day and Barbara keeps changing her phone number. Second, I won’t deny that Kim has a certain level of influence, inasmuch as someone who’s only famous for glorifying man’s inhumanity to man can be influential, but there’s no way in sh!t that Kim is more influential than the First Lady. Not buying it. This is just Kanye trying to convince himself that marrying a twice-divorced, money-grubbing famewhore wasn’t the dumbest idea ever. “HAHA! Life-ruining decision? What life-ruining decision? I’m so happy — Ow, my soul!”
