President Obama Criticises Kim & Kanye as Bad Social Influences

Barack Obama has criticised the reality starlet, Kim Kardashian, and her rapper boyfriend, Kanye West, for bad influences on young peopleDuring a visit to Amazon’s warehouses in Tennessee Monday (August 5), he blamed the celebrity couple for trashing the American Dream; “The American dream involved some pretty basic stuff, a good job where you felt some security, a good education. People felt if they worked hard they could get there, 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. 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.” SEE MORE AFTER CUT>>>>>

Obama and Kanye have not been cool like Jay Z. In April 2012 interview with the Atlantic, Obama stated “Although I like Kanye, he’s a Chicago guy. Smart. He’s very talented,” and reiterated his statement about Kanye when he snatched Taylor Swift’s award on stage at the VMAs “He is a jackass…

But he’s talented.”
