Obama doesn’t want his daughters watching the Kardashians

Kim Kardashian and Barack Obama

Proving once again that he's just too fancy for the rest of us (Harvard Law school! Leader of the free world! Arugula!), Barack Obama has been outed as not liking Keeping Up with the Kardashians or any of its myriad spin-offs.

Discussing her family's TV habits recently, Michelle Obama said her husband would prefer if their two daughters avoided the show: "Barack really thinks of the Kardashians — when they watch that stuff — he doesn't like that as much." The First Lady is a little more lenient, but really only as long as Sasha and Malia understand that what they're watching is batshit insane.

"I sort of feel like if we're talking about, and I'm more concerned with how they take it in — what did you learn when you watched that? And if they're learning the right lessons, like 'that was crazy,' then I'm like, okay," she said. 

And this in spite of the fact that Obama apparently inspired Kim Kardashian to vote for the very first time! Just because you're the President doesn't mean you should ignore the importance of our nation's greatest reality stars. Oh wait, that's exactly what it means? Okay, scratch that, Obama's in the right on this one.
