Kendall Jenner stunned at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner, where she shared a star-struck Snapchat with fans and was even mentioned by President Obama personally. What did the leader of the free world have to say to Kendall? “Say hi to Kim and Kanye.”
Naturally, that wasn’t all that President Obama had to say about Kendall Jenner, who was invited to the White House on behalf of USA Today. Mentioning that he “had a chance to meet [Kendall] backstage,” Obama added that Jenner “seems like a very nice young woman.”
Jenner, who stars on the reality series Keeping Up With The Kardashians, is something of a mystery to the President, who claims he is “not exactly sure what she does” before adding that he was “told that my Twitter mentions are about to go through the roof.” Jenner has over 17 million Twitter followers, while the White House has 10.1 million at time of press. But both are dwarfed by her Instagram followers, which total over 55 million.
Kendall, who is a supporter of the Rock The Vote movement, urged her 55 million Instagram followers to sign up on National Voters’ Registration Day so they can vote in the 2016 Presidential Election.
Reminding her fans that “[e]very day, we vote,” Kendall compared it to social media. “We’re able to express our opinions online with links and hashtags, but when it comes to the right to vote, it always hasn’t been that easy, especially for women,” Jenner explained via video, adding that “[b]ecause of suffragettes and their battle, gender doesn’t matter, but your vote always can.”
Kendall also shared an obligatory cleavage shot before she attended the White House Correspondent’s Dinner, which brings together high-powered politicians alongside members of the media as well as celebrities.
Having some fun with the cleavage shot, Jenner captioned the intimate snap with “gangs all here.” Cupping her chest in the shot, Kendall showed off not just her body, but her floor-length black Vivienne Westwood dress with sweetheart neckline and 50-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond stud choker, which completed the look.
After meeting President Obama, Kendall was clearly excited, telling her Instagram followers that she was “honored” to be at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner, and even gave her Snapchat fans a glimpse of the behind the scenes glamour after she met the President. “I just met Obama and this is how I feel,” Jenner wrote.
Kendall Jenner wasn’t the only person to get roasted at the White House event, and she wasn’t even the youngest. President Obama took a chance to giggle about meeting 2-year-old Prince George, who is in line to inherit the British throne.
During a visit to the royal family, the President shared a moment with George, shaking hands with the toddler, who was ready for bed in his pajamas and bathrobe. In photographs taken of the moment, an unsure George looks to his mother for confidence as he timidly offers his hand for the President to shake.
Mentioning that “Prince George showed up to our meeting in his bathrobe,” Obama jokingly added that it was “a slap in the face—a breach of protocol” that the 2-year-old wasn’t properly dressed.
Kendall Jenner has also been in headlines for her feuds, this time with Rebecca Romijn, who now claims she “never talked smack” about Jenner. Recently, Rebecca posted a tweet mentioning that she hates how “social media stars are now the supermodels in fashion,” which Jenner fans took as an insult to the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star.
Rebecca echoed her sentiments in a separate interview, adding that social media stars are “not true supermodels,” and that nobody “has proven yet that numbers of followers translates to revenue.” As always, Kendall Jenner has not replied to Rebecca Romijn.
