President Barack Obama criticizes Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in an interview with Amazon Singles.
In arguing that a “change in culture” has distorted views of the American Dream, Obama singled out a certain reality television show star and her musician boyfriend.
Not so long ago, “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,” Obama said in an interview with Amazon.com.
One personal result, Obama said, is that he and wife Michelle are “constantly reminding (daughters) Malia and Sasha of the slightly unreal environment that they’re in, and that that’s not the norm.”
The president has often criticized the reality show culture in general, and the Kardashians in particular. Mrs. Obama has told reporters her husband doesn’t like his daughters watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
