Kris Jenner Slams President Obama After His Remarks About Kim Kardashian

August 12, 2013 11:06 AM by Lisa Princ

Kris Jenner seems to be on a roll lately on her talk show! First, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians matriarch defended Scott Disick, and now she is defending her daughter, Kim Kardashian and her beau, Kanye West. In fact, Jenner recently slammed President Obama after he made some remarks about the reality couple!

Kris Jenner is not one to sit quietly while her family is bashed, and even the president is not immune to her wrath! Recently, President Obama blamed celebrities for people focusing too much on material items, and he made sure to include Jenner’s family, stating: “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. 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.”

Obviously, Kris Jenner does not agree, as she took to her talk show to rant: “I bet the president has some friends with 10,000-square-foot houses and you probably wouldn’t mind going over there, Mr. President, while you were asking them to have a party for you when you were campaigning for dollars to run for president.” But Jenner didn’t stop there, as she took an opportunity to defend Kim and Kanye as well. “Kanye West, first of all, doesn’t go on vacation. 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,” Jenner vented, adding that the President’s job allows him to live just as lavishly as her family does.

For once Jenner actually has a great point, don’t you think?

    She makes no sense hes the President & her daughter is a reality star .DUH

    The President’s point was valid, kids see celebrities in Bentley’s with big watches and they think, “Well, if I rap I can get that.” They aren’t focused on school and how to make a healthy living. I am not saying Kimye doesn’t have a “busy” schedule but c’mon it’s not like she is working 3 jobs at the meat factory to provide for her family. Good for her for using what God gave her to succeed but, let’s be honest Middle America works ten times harder for not even a fraction of what she is worth!

    The president’s comment was not to “bash” the Kardashian’s, personally. Kris took it personal because she is feeling guilty. She is a VERY materialistic person. I’ll leave you with this verse from Matthew 6:19-21, “19 Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

    I totally agree with the President (for once)! I don’t think anything he said was offensive to Kardashian or West and he was completely on mark; he was just making an observation. As for Jenner’s response . . . a complete over reaction! My grandmother used to say, “Bit dog always hollers!” The President obviously hit a nerve into the Kardashian clan’s frivolous lifestyle.

  5. Ang Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 11:33 am

    Clearly she is so self-absorbed that she did not understand the message the president was trying to convey. Because of reality shows in general our children are being exposed to a world they may never get to experience! It should not be the mark of success you should teach your children that if they work hard, are good people and are empathetic they are successful!

    Is Kris Jenner REALLY comparing Kim’s “job” to the Presidents? Pretty sure that Obama’s fame wasn’t inspired by a sex tape.

  7. Funny Lady Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 11:45 am

    Kris K. is an idiot–President Obama wasn’t bashing Kim or Kanye. If he was bashing anyone, he was remarking on the shallowness of today’s youth, who are overly concerned with the everyday habits and activities of celebrities. Kris’s remarks just draw attention to the mind-numbingly self-centered priorities of the “K’s”.

    Three people in one article with zero talent: Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Kanye West. Let’s talk about people who’ve actually DONE something. They’re not exactly curing cancer, people.

    Kris is psycho. She needs a therapist with her detail for controlling her cattle.

    To go at it with the President, is she serious?

    Who the hell does she think she is besides a money hunger control freak.

    Plan idiot!!!

    I have been a fan of the Kardashian clan since the first aired. I have felt Kim did not get a fair shake with her divorce issues. But come on Kris, do you really believe he has something against your family. He was using the most visible celebrities. Maybe if you would stop and think, you would realize that we all can improve on our desire for fame, fortunate. It’s costly.

  13. Lady Speaks Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 12:06 pm

    No Kris Jenner does NOT have a point! Is she actually equating the presidents work, leading the free world, with Kim’s being paid to go to the opening of the next hot club. Is she also equating the president’s beginnings as a Harvard grad, a lawyer and then a senator to Kim’s introduction to the spotlight in a sex video? Kim might be busy, but let’s get real, Kris Jenner!!! I think the bigger question is, why does Kris Jenner even have a talk show?

  14. Ann Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 12:08 pm

    The President did not speak poorly of either Kim or Kanye … he simply spoke of the “Window” that is so prevalent into “famous peoples” lifestyles (creating a unrealistic bar for so many people who don’t have a mother dedicating to selling her entire family [and that is MY interpretation, not what he said]) … but the President did not mention either favorably or unfavorably the lifestyle itself where the empty and vacuous can and do enjoy a lovely existence. But you know this woman will take any opportunity she can to splay herself (preferably) or her children (more preferable to the general public) upon the alter of media so she can license every little breath they take even if it’s a shot at an innocuous comment that had NOTHING to do with her family other than using them, since they are so ubiquitous in their marketing, makes them useful for illustration … of the WINDOW into their lives (the curtains to which they open wide and if personal comment was made, how could they take offense?)!!

  15. hemk Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 12:10 pm

    This family should NOT be on TV…they have produced other girls making sex tapes thinking they can be famous to join boy cott the kardashians on face book

  16. michael Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 12:15 pm

    Is she talking about blow-jobs, or other kind of jobs? Yeah, Kim is working really hard on those jobs…

  17. charlie Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 12:15 pm

    Kim is an uneducated whore she famous for f’ng on camera why should that be acknowledged as hard working.

  18. linda Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 12:21 pm

    They are both so full of themselves and out of touch with reality. How many celebrities did it take to put B.O. back in office? Then it was okay for the celebs to be ‘out there’. The people who ‘listen’ to what celebrities have to say about political views are dangerous. Shallow all the way around just like they are. B.O. needs to shut up about vacationing etc. He is in the midst of a 7.5 Million dollar per week little get-away right now including airlifting their dog and his personal basketballs in a separate aircraft. PULEEZ!

    This is the first time I have ever agreed with a Kardashian!

  20. JENNIFER Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 12:34 pm

    Just another inane remark from a member of that trashy crew!!!

  21. Roni Martinez Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 12:37 pm

    She obviously did not understand what the President was trying to relay. She needs to STOP, LISTEN, and THINK before she opens her big mouth. While I do agree that they have a lot of money, and WE have made them who the Kardashians are today. I disagree that Kim is the hardest working woman in the world. I have seen and know many women out there who have to work as housekeepers, and other physical jobs that have to struggle to put food on the table. She should be ASHAMED of herself for replying in such a manner that allows her to look even more stupid. Unfortunately, we did this.. because we continue to watch them..

  22. Joanne Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 12:54 pm

    How lame! I am always interested to read when a celebrity slams Obama, but this? Would have been better if she slammed him on a real issue, i.e the loss of good medical care the non rich and famous are on the cusp of losing. All this while she, her family and Obama continues to receive excellent care from their Dr’s.

  23. MIchelle Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 1:13 pm

    The President was totally valid in his comments. The Kardashians are rich simply by good old LUCK. They did not work hard or do anything great to deserve their fame. They are simply strategically cashing in on their too many years of pointless reality tv fame. Had reality tv never gotten popular, they ALL would be NOBODY’S…….

  24. Anne Ndegwa Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 1:39 pm

    Chris, wake up. The President was only comparing the past and the present life and how kids are exposed to so many things that we were not exposed to while we were growing. He only gave an example and if only Chris has any wisdom, she would have understood the entirety of the content.

  25. KSC Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 1:47 pm

    That woman will do ANYTHING to stay in the media. ANYTHING. They entire family disgusts me.

  26. Sheila Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 1:49 pm

    Really Kris you dimwit your daughter became famous because she is a slut and she parlayed her body into a commodity. This is called “the oldest profession known to man”. The Kardashian name should never be in a sentence with Obama’s. He acquired everything he has got by diligent work and ethical conduct. You really do need a “reality” check.

  27. Chris Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    Who gave this tramp her own television show? She admits to sleeping with her hairstylist Alex Rodan and O.J. Simpson while she was married. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Parents: Be careful of the example you set for your children because they are watching and learning from your actions.

  28. Mark Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 2:23 pm

    Kris Jenner and Kim Kartrashian are poor examples of women and human beings.

  29. Alex Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 2:24 pm

    President Obama was 100% correct! Anyone who starts a career with a sex tape is no example of the American Dream.

  30. Simone Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 2:30 pm

    I don’t care for Obama or Kartrashian clan, but He is the president & Kim or the Kartrashians are famous for Kim’s sex tape. I’m not saying that The Prez is talented but neither are the Kartrashians. I wish Bruce would put this witch in her place & shut her up.

  31. Neveah Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 2:55 pm

    I agree with President Obama. This is not the first time he has slammed them. 750,00 on a gold toilet? I’m sorry but there are way to many starving children in the world. My question why? Why is that necessary. It isn’t. Everytime you see Kayne he is in an airport flying somewhere else….the K’s eat every meal either out or catered. It is just obviously vomitizing

  32. Brian P Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    I just want to see Kris Jenner stand up on her show and say,
    ‘Ohhh – you cursed brat! Look what you’ve done! I’m melting! Melting! Oh – what a world – what a world! Who would have thought a good little President like you could destroy my beautiful wickedness!? Ohhh! Look out! Look out! I’m going. Ohhhh! Ohhhhhh…”.

    Now that would be cool!

  33. 'Dusty Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 3:16 pm

    Sorry Chris is too sensitive. She needs to let go of promoting her family like she has give them a break and us the TV viewer. Not for sure why or how they have become this popular or what they think they do. Bruce is the only real celebrity to me for what he did in the Olympics. So many here in comments have said the President was not downing he was only saying what are we showing our young people today, their lifestyle and so many other celebrities is not for real. I did feel that Kim used her last husband for the show and then dumped him. No way was she ever going back to live in his home state ever. Not watch Chris new show too empty headed and time for Kardashians to go off into the sunset, please.

  34. Laurie Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 3:22 pm

    People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. I finally agree with Kris Jenner. President Obama never held a real job before he went to Washington, and he is living better than all of us. His family has taken more vacations on the taxpayers’ dime than any other President.

  35. Idang G Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    Obama has more problems on his hand than commenting on the lifestyle of other people.At least the Kardashians are spending their own money.The Obamas are wasting the taxpayers money.

  36. Kathy Says:

    Kris Jenner needs to get off the air. She is useless. Including her daughter Kim. Yuck!!!!

    The president bashes celebrities for “focusing too much on material items” yet, he goes on lavish vacations, has parties all the time at the white house, is best friends with Beyonce and Jay Z. Hmmm….hypocrite much?

  41. Stephanie Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 6:10 pm

    Kim Kardashian’s “work” involves photoshoots and reality TV shoots. Kanye’s involves making music.

    President Obama’s work involves RUNNING THE FUCKING COUNTRY. Please do not compare them to one another and GTFO.

  42. realitycheck Says:

    Can’t stand either one of them. Let them have at each other and make even bigger fools of themselves!

  43. Bri Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 6:33 pm

    I’m sorry but ummm didn’t Kim become famous from her sextape? I have no clue what she was even doing as a job/career before that sex tape came out. You wanna talk about hard working woman? Let’s look at regular everyday woman that don’t have millions of dollars and have to work daily just to stay afloat financially (some working multiple jobs), some are in school, taking care of children, cooking, cleaning, running errands…all of that. Those are hard working women. HELL Oprah is a hard working woman! And she didn’t have to put out a sextape to get where she is at. I understand defending your child but let’s not be ridiculous.

  44. kris Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 6:36 pm

    i’m not even a fan of obama, but i take his side on this one. she’s an idiot to think that he was directly talking about them in the first place. he is right about kids caring too much about this crap. however, she does make a point, that ALL presidents take money from people just LIKE kim kardashian, etc. maybe we need to get rid of both

  45. Rae Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 7:57 pm

    who is watching her show????
    Obama should have shamed her for letting her children curse her out on national television. Real or fake, teens or adults not child should talk to their parents like that.
    Obama is right!!! The only descent one in the family is Bruce.

  46. Layla Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    Kris Jenner is so stupid that she totally misunderstood what the President was talking about!! She should listen before she shoots her big fat mouth off! When in God’s name will they take this self-absorbed woman and her insipid family off the air so I won’t have to be haunted by this bunch of neanderthals!

    The author of this article is plain naive for saying ” For once Jenner actually has a great point” – How you ever compare the president and what he has earned through his hard work with Kris Jenner or her family.

  50. Punkee Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 11:17 pm

    I’m confused… Kim works?

    also Obama made the good point not Jenner, stop agreeing with the crazy momager

  51. Cass Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 11:18 pm

    Obama works for his money, educated, articulate family man. Whether you like him or not he achieved sucess through hard work not opening his legs and sucking cock.

    Kim is simply a rich slut who doesn’t know the value of a women’s body. She got famous for sucking a black man’s cock will he f$$$ed her like a god, Impressive right?

  52. Cass Says:
    August 12th, 2013 at 11:22 pm

    Kris is an old tuna fish who pimps her kids for financial gain, She also is a money gold digging flight atttendant who married only for money.

    She is the ultimate madame and undercover whore.

    Also she is old as the hills, nothing worse than an old ass woman trying to young instead of embracing her age and showing women all ages are beautiful. Sick people, giving nothing back to the world, they only help people to get praise or media coverage, I bet they don’t give to the needy unless they get something out of it.

  53. Shelia A Says:
    August 13th, 2013 at 3:25 am

    Who hears that comment and gives that response. She just wants to bring up her daughters name as much as possible. She is so happy she landed a well known personality and can’t let 10 minutes go by without reminding the world of it.

    Any mother who would talk their daughter into doing playboy has serious, serious problems.

  54. FedUp Says:
    August 13th, 2013 at 4:47 am

    It’s amazing that a self-absorbed narcissist who has never held a real job in his life would comment on people who — at the very least — are spending their own money, and not that of the taxpayer.

  55. Ana Says:

    I usually watch their shows but Kris is an idiot, she should of made her brain cells work before she opens her mouth. The president was comparing yesterday’s youth to todays and what they are exposed to. But then again kris probably thought to use this opportunity to keep the kardashians in the headlines, promote her show and make more money. C’MON HUMANS WAKE UP !! and stop feeding unto these idiots skim and bullshit

  57. Lance Says:
    August 13th, 2013 at 8:09 am

    If we turned back time, Kris Jenner could have been one of the Teen Mom’s! She just forgot to grow up. She sure acts as immature as they do. To bad she didn’t give all her daughters up for adoption; perhaps they’d have had a better example for mothers! Any woman who would encourage her daughter to do Playboy, is no MOTHER! She loves money more than her kids. Give her some “truth serum” and I am sure if you asked her that question, she admit it. Ryan Seacrest should be embarrassed to produce such a bunch of nonsense and pass it off as a Family Reality show!

    All these liberals — the POTUS is always right. Even when he makes irrelevant comment like Kanye is a jack-ass yet the POTUS is always right. Now remember the story of the emperor without clothes on. Who had the last laugh.
