Where Does Barack Obama Really Stand On Keeping Up With The Kardashians?

It can be difficult sometimes to determine where politicians stand on certain issues. This is because each and every one of them is a John Kerry flip-flopper and none of them are ever to be trusted. Wake up, America! The system is broken! TEAR IT ALL DOWN! #politricks. Case in point: Barack Obama can’t seem to keep his story straight on the issue of the popular television series Keeping Up With the Kardashians. What is it, Obama? Did you just think that no one was going to notice, right in the middle of 2012 pre-election season? You thought you could appeal to both sides without repercussion? Well guess what, Mr. President: WE ALL NOTICED! From iVillage:

“Barack really thinks some of the Kardashians — when they watch that stuff — he doesn’t like that as much,” said the First Lady, “but I sort of feel like if we’re talking about it, 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.”

Very interesting point, Michelle Obama. You seem very level-headed if not slightly too lenient on the effects you think watching garbage television will have on your tiny children. But what’s that you said about Barack? That he doesn’t want his 10 and 13-year-old daughters watching E!’s series following three disgisting women trading sex for fame? (Right?) Oh, weird. You know that’s kind of weird, Barack, because it didn’t seem like you felt that way when you TOLD KHLOE KARDASHIAN THE EXACT OPPOSITE KIND OF! From TMZ:

We’re told the Kardashians were “surprised” by the news … because Obama personally told Khloe he thought Keeping Up with the Kardashians was a “great show” when they met last year.

Oooooohhh, how about that? A “great show.” So which is it, BARACK? Is Keeping Up With the Kardashians a “great show” or do you “not like it as much” when your daughters watch it? The American public demands and deserves an answer! This is bologna! You are a flip-flopper! Please send your response to tips@videogum.com or, actually, just kelly@videogum.com!
