Last week, President Barack Obama called out Kim Kardashian and Kanye West by saying that their stupidly huge wealth doesn’t actually denote any sort of real success anymore, and that it’s entirely possible to be happy and successful without material objects. You may recognize this as one of the first things you teach your kids growing up. Anyway, Kris Jenner heard this, causing the little reptilian part of her brain responsible for seething revenge and self-righteous indignation to go into overdrive. Via HuffPo …
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
HA! Oh, that’s cute how Kris thinks her family earned even a penny of what they have now. Nope. Kris married a rich guy who got all his money defending OJ Simpson, and then she monetized her only family’s greed, wrath, and unwarranted sense of self-worth into a reality show. You didn’t work hard: You started off awful, and then you used money someone else earned to broadcast the fact that you were awful people onto a medium that celebrates awful people. That’s not hard work, that’s just opportunism and bad life choices.
