*Dang, all this time we thought the President Obama, Kanye, Kim K and the Kardashians didn’t exactly see eye to eye. In fact we recall back in 2013, the president using an interview with Amazon to discuss – among other things – the American dream. It was noted – at the time – he thought that there had been something of “a shift in culture” … with today’s youth being bombarded with the trappings of wealth. He then went on to throw shade at Kanye, Kim and the Kardashians as an example:
“I don’t think people went around saying to themselves: ‘I need to have a 10,000 square foot house,'” Obama reflected of his own childhood. “We weren’t exposed to things we didn’t have in the same way 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.”
Well, that was then. Now it appears the prez and Mr. and Mrs. West have decided to be cordial to each other these days. So much so that the three to a pic together sometime last year.
On Friday, Kim shared the photo on Instagram … complete with a personal message from the Commander in Chief himself.
“To Kanye & Kim – Thanks for the support and best wishes to your lovely daughter!” the president wrote.
Now that we think about it, we’re guessing the the picture was most likely taken in October, when the Wests met POTUS for a sit down at the White House.
“Me and my wife met with President Obama two weeks ago,” Kanye Tweeted after the meeting.
We wonder in Mr. Obama still thinks Kanye is a “jackass,” as he has labeled him a couple of times in the past.
