President Barack Obama gets asked the most ridiculous questions. For a man who has so much on his plate, you would think that he wouldn’t have time to discuss just anything.
President Obama did take some time out of his day to speak about a something that is totally releveant to his life. While giving an interview at one of Amazon’s warehouses in Tennessee, the commander in chief had this to say about young peoples perception of success and wealth as it relates to celebrities – pointing out Kim and Kanye.
“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.”
