Kris Jenner Hits Back At President Obama Following Kim & Kanye Comments [Video]

Kris Jenner is not happy with President Obama one bit. Not because she fears the NSA's surveillance system of the internet is a frightening breach of privacy, nor because she is disappointed that he still hasn't made any advances with his health care promises. No, Kris is angry at President Obama because he was mean to her daughter, Kim Kardashian, by describing her as a bad role model for children. Now, the mother of the Kardashian clan has hit back at Obama in defence of Kim and her boyfriend Kanye West.

Kris Jenner
Kris wasn't at all happy with the President's comments

Kris called her daughter the "hardest-working young lady in the world" on her show, Kris, this Monday (12 August) and was truly offended by the President's implied comments. She went on to vouch for Kim's husband too, who President Obama has made no secret of his disdain for, and went on to describe them as model examples of what people can aspire to if they work hard and put their mind to something. She said, "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. 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."

Kanye and Kim: prime role models for kids?

Kris was responding to Obama's recent conversation with David Blum about the economy in which he attacked the overexposure of the celebrity lifestyle and commented that the celebrity status is now the mark of success for many young people, rather than working for a job that might go somewhere towards benefitting society.

"Partly, I think, there also has been a shift in culture. We weren't exposed to things we didn't have in the same way kids these days are. There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous," the President said. "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."

Does Kris have a point? Would you describe someone who found fame by having sex on camera and then selling herself to the tabloids as a better example to kids than say, a doctor or a scientist?
