In a recent “Kindle Singles” interview with David Blum, President Obama was asked whether or not there were things he yearned for but couldn’t afford when growing up. He pointed out how the American Dream has changed since then from “an education, a steady job, a home, and family” and went on to say:
“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.”
O. M. F. G. YOU. DID. NOT. JUST. SAY. THAT., PRESIDENT. OBAMA. Ugh. I feel so bad for kids who grew up whenever Obama grew up. Seems so gross. What did they even look at on their phones? Just the stuff their own friends were doing, or like, just games and stuff? Ew. Anyway, Kris Jenner, mother of Kim Kardashian, has her own television show now and responded to President Obama on that television show. YOU CAN’T JUST SAY WHAT YOU WANT AND NOT GET RESPONDED AT, PRESIDENT OBAMA!
Just to get the ball rolling, I’ve drafted an apology for President Obama:
“My Fellow Americans,
Being President means being able to admit when you’re wrong. Now, some of you might have heard some of the things I said about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in that interview with the Kindle thing. [Pause for boos.] I know, I know. Let me start off by saying that Kanye West, first of all, doesn’t go on vacation ever. I know that now. But I’d like to reserve my biggest apology for Kim Kardashian, truly — and I checked! — the world’s hardest-working female. She never sleeps! [Pause for applause.] She never sleeps! [Not a mistake -- repeated for effect.] The Kardashians have famously worked hard for everything they’ve gotten, and have steered a generation of children in what can only be described as the right direction — I’m not even sure what my angle was in pretending otherwise. I was so stupid. I can’t believe I said those stupid other things. I don’t even know what I was thinking. Ugh. Stupid stupid stupid STUPID STUPID STUPID STUPID STUPID STUPID. I’m sorry.”
Luckily, we are a forgiving nation. (Via Dlisted.)
