5 reasons the kardashians are not the first family
Holy smokes batman! Have you seen the November cover of Cosmopolitan? Someone high up on the food chain thought it was such a great idea to put the Kardashian/Jenner clan on the cover of their 50th issue and label them America’s First Family. Are you fucking serious? You’ve got to be kidding me. I don’t even know how they approved this. Fail! Fail! Fail! I cannot support this tomfoolery.
#1 America’s first family (in case they didn’t know) was President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and their children Malia and Sasha Obama. They’ve been the first family since 2009 so I am unsure how Cosmo got this one wrong.
#2 When I think of first families, I don’t think of someone (or a family) who rose to fame because of a sex tape that leaked.
#3 I know they have their following, but…………………………………………..I would never call a family who specializes in social media, plastic surgery, and close relationships with the paparazzi America’s first family. The only thing they seem talented at is getting us to talk about them. (damn me, for giving them the satisfaction).
#4 I know that Kanye said he wanted to run for President in 2020, but he hasn’t run nor has he won. Isn’t this label a little presumptuous?
#5 I would also like to think that my first family had a little more substance. You know a family that’s not always posting racy selfies or snapchats. Maybe have a cause they believe in and champion for it. Have some degrees. Have a real career. Understand politics. Not be accused of being a culture vulture every other day or publicity whores.
Random: Why does this cover have easiest work out for an epic ass as though any of their asses are real?
Translation: The Kardashians are not America’s first family. Please stop fooling them with this nonsense. It’s wrong on so many levels, and I just gave you the first 5 that came to mind.
