Conservative Rush Limbaugh has found himself at the forefront of media attention again as he has called out President Barack Obama and his celebrity style campaigning, labeling him as ‘Barack Hussein Kardashian’.
The celebrity style campaigning that Limbaugh is referring to is the Obama efforts that have recently hosted the likes of George Clooney, Jon Bon Jovi and Sarah Jessica Parker. There has even been an advertisement featuring “Vogue” editor Anna Wintour.
Feeling that the President has gone too far, Limbaugh took the chance to lay into the campaigning efforts by the Obama staff.
“It’s an indication once again how out of touch they really are, how distanced they have become from the people who make this country work. It’s an indication of what they think the strong drawing power of the presidency is. He’s becoming Barack Kardashian. I’ll tell you that’s what’s becoming. He is becoming the male Kim Kardashian with this stuff,” Limbaugh said.
When asked what they thought about Limbaugh’s comments, Obama press secretary Jay Carney insisted that the millions of small and anonymous donations were a better representation of the President’s overall campaign.
“The difference between President Obama’s support, financial support, and his opponent’s is stark, but not in the way that you describe. The fundamental difference is President Obama has vast numbers of small donors who support his campaign,” Carney said. “That is not the case for the Republican nominee.”
“The fact that the president enjoys that kind of support speaks to what his policy priorities are. He’s out there fighting for the middle class,” said Carney. “The bedrock foundation of his support are the millions and millions of Americans who believe in his vision for this country’s future and believe that he has their back.”
