Kris Jenner lashes out at President Obama's comments about Kim and Kanye

Kris Jenner lashes out at President Obama's comments about Kim and Kanye

(Yahoo!) - Uh-oh. Them is fightin' words. On "Kris" on Friday, August 9, Kris Jenner called out none other than President Barack Obama for comments he made during his interview with David Blum for Kindle Singles about Kim Kardashian and her baby daddy, Kanye West.

So just what did the leader of the free world say to get on Mama Jenner's bad side? He basically indicated that celebrities like Kim and Kanye are to blame for bastardizing the American Dream to be too focused on material things.

"I do think what's shifted is a notion that the wealthier you are, the more conspicuous consumption you engage in. The more successful you are, the more society should stay out of your way as you pursue the bigger house or the fancier jet or the bigger yacht," the president explained.

"Were there things that all of us might have liked to have? Sure," he admitted before adding, "But 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. Kids weren't monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye Westwas going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success."

Not surprisingly, Jenner sees it differently.
