Kris Jenner, the new talk show host, is speaking out against president Barack Obama for targeting her daughter Kim Kardashian and her boyfriend Kanye West recently.
Obama spoke to David Blum for Kindle Singles recently where he revealed his thoughts on the "American Dream" changing over time.
"The American dream involved some pretty basic stuff, a good job where you felt some security, a good education," Obama said. "I don't think people went around saying to themselves, 'I need to have a 10,000-square-foot house'. I think there has also been a shift in culture. We weren't exposed to the things we didn't have in the same way that kids these days are."
The president named 32-year-old reality television star Kim Kardashian and rapper Kanye West when acknowledging how times have changed.
"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.
However, the Kardashian matriarch was not happy with Obama's comments. On her talk show host "Kris," Jenner decided to speak directly to the president in defense of her daughter.
"I wasn't aware that you could only set the bar so high. And that we could only dream so big. I was taught dream big, work hard and you can have whatever you wanted…Right," Jenner questioned. "And another thing…wow, I bet the President has some friends with 10,000 square feet houses and you probably wouldn't mind going over there Mr. President while you're asking them to have a party for you when you were campaigning for dollars to run for president."
Jenner chastised the president for picking on her daughter.
"I find it so odd that he's picking on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West…Kim Kardashian is the hardest working young lady in the world. She never sleeps," Jenner insisted. "She never stops. She never slows down. And works so hard for what she's got."
Jenner went on to compare the president to her daughter.
"Her job, affords her to live in a 10,000 square foot house. And I think, if I'm not mistaken, Mr. President's job affords him to live in a 55,000 square foot house," Jenner said. "So basically, my house would fit in his entry…You poke at someone for living a lifestyle…I'm sure when he grew up his dream was one day, 'I want to be the president of the united states.' We all want to aspire."
"I just don't think it's a bad thing to wanna be our best and do our best and have nice things," she added.
