Did Mr. President take shots at Kanye West and Kim Kardashian?
President Obama mentioned Kim and Kanye during an interview with Kindle Singles when he was talking about distractions that the youth are involved with.
"The American dream involved some pretty basic stuff, a good job where you felt some security, a good education," he said.
"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."
Was that a slight jab?
