It seems that there is always a Kardashian making headlines, and this week matriarch Kris Jenner is taking the reigns on behalf of daughter Kim and her boyfriend Kanye.

Kris has evidently lashed out against President Barak Obama for the defamatory remarks he made at a recent interview regarding power couple “Kimye”. During the interview for Kindle, Obama commented on the distortion of the American Dream, attacking the famous couple for distorting youth perspectives of what qualifies as success. Obama blamed over-exposure to the rich and famous for the shift in mentality as he claims “kids weren’t monitoring everyday what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success.”

It appears that Kris didn’t take the President’s words very lightly, firing back at him on her E! talk show last Friday. The new grandmother defended the couple stating that “Kim Kardashian is the hardest working young lady in the world” and that “Kanye West doesn’t go on vacation, ever.” Justifying their success, she praised their work ethic and insisted that they work hard for what they have. For good measure, Kris commented “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.”

We can appreciate Kris’s point but maybe the she should let her daughter fight her own battles next time!
