President Obama: Kim Kardashian And Kanye West’s Wealth Isn’t A Realistic Mark Of The American Dream.

President Obama’s relationship with Kanye West defined as rocky in recent years took another stab in the wrong direction; a never ending path that eventually leads to platinum outburst from Kanye.
This time around, Obama addressed Kanye a recent interview with David Blum for Kindle Singles when Blum asked the president about the famous American dream, saying, “Part of the American dream — even if you’re poor, or lower-middle class — involves yearning for tangible things you can’t afford. Were there things, when you were growing up, that you yearned for that you couldn’t afford?”
Obama replied, speaking about a cunny toil in the expectation of the American dream. He said the dream used to mean having a good home, a good job, and the prospects of a higher education but now, not so much. Growing up today, however, children are opened to such wealth in the form of celebrities’ lifestyles that everything seems smaller by comparison. Speaking on his own experience, Obama said, “There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous.”
He went on to further evaluate the over-the-top lives of West and Kardashian and the effect that they have on young people, saying, “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.”. iBlab, what do you do?.
