Kim Kardashian, who once again showed up at this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, rolled in at #7 on Forbes 100 Celebrity list. And MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinksi was none too pleased about it on this morning’s “Morning Joe.”
“What’s the impact of Kim Kardashian?” asked an incensed Brzezinksi. “What is the impact…what does she do? What is her influence?”
Co-host Joe Scarborough quickly moved things along. But the topic kept resurfacing throughout the morning. At one point guest Jon Meacham of Random House, called Mika the Ambassador to the Topic of the Kardashians.
Mika wondered what her father, former U.S. National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinksi, might say about America if he knew about Kim Kardashian. “My father wouldn’t even know who Kim Kardashian was,” she said. “And if I pointed out that she made this list he would find that fascinating and troubling about America.”
Love her or hate her, Kardashian came up on ABC’s “The View” last week when, in a trivia test, co-host Joy Behar asked President Obama which Kardashian had been married for only 72 days. He replied, “That would be Kim.” Publications reported the President was embarrassed about his knowledge of the Kardashian.
