Barack Obama Compared to Kim Kardashian by Rush Limbaugh - Gather.com

Barack Obama recently got dissed by Rush Limbaugh (surprise, surprise), and the obnoxious radio show host insulted the president by comparing him to one of the worst people he could think of - Kim Kardashian.

Rush renamed the president "Barack Kardashian" because he gets so many donations from the celebrities who support him. However, this insult doesn't really make very much sense - Jon Hamm and Daniel Craig are just two of the many celebrities who can't stand the Kardashians, and you don't see any stars donating money to the family in hopes of keeping them around.

Even though it would probably be better for the White House to simply ignore blowhards like Rush Limbaugh, press secretary Jay Carney couldn't resist giving this answer when he was asked about Rush's insult:

"Two words: Donald Trump. Next question."

He makes a good point - Barack Obama might get support from celebrities like George Clooney, Beyonce, Jay-Z, and Sarah Jessica Parker, but Mitt Romney and Donald Trump recently held a fundraiser in Las Vegas together. Romney has been skittish about distancing himself from a man with so much money, even though Trump has been soundly ridiculed for being a birther by democrats and republicans alike. So if the president's real name is Barack Kardashian, does that mean that there should be no more questions about him being born in the United States? Or is Donald Trump now going to claim that he was born in Armenia?

It's also silly that Rush Limbaugh is comparing Barack Obama to Kim Kardashian because the president obviously would never date Kanye West - he's labeled the rapper a "jackass," after all. He also made a joke about having no idea what the Kardashians are famous for at the White House Correspondents' Dinner and has said that he won't let Sasha and Malia watch their show.

Maybe poor Rush is just running out of material - perhaps now he'll try to claim that the president has a sex tape just like Kim Kardashian; that his butt is fake; or that his marriage to Michelle Obama is a sham.
