Now that’s a low blow. During a campaign stop on Sunday evening, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney compared President Barack Obama to Kim Kardashian. According to the NY Post:
“‘I’ve been looking at some video clips on YouTube of President Obama — then candidate Obama — going through Iowa making promises,’ Romney said Sunday, referencing Obama on the campaign trail in 2008. ‘The gap between his promises and his performance is the largest I’ve seen, well, since the Kardashian wedding and the promise of ’til death do we part.’
Obama can’t have liked the comparison, and not only because it alludes to the idea that he has not lived up to the promise of his campaign. Obama is simply not a fan of the Kardashian’s many E! television franchises.
Michelle Obama told iVillage in October, ‘Barack really thinks [Keeping Up With The Kardashians] — when [Malia and Sasha] watch that stuff — he doesn’t like that.’”
