President Obama has been compared to Kim Kardashian by Mitt Romney.
“I’ve been looking at some video clips on YouTube of President Obama, then candidate Obama, going through Iowa making promises,” he said. “I think the gap between his promises and his performance is the largest I’ve seen, well, since the Kardashian wedding and the promise of til death do we part.”
The comments from Romney came when he was campaigning in Council Bluffs, Iowa this past weekend. Romney has been doubling down in an effort to win the votes of Iowans ahead of today’s caucus.
Romney has used references such as the Kardashian one in an effort to promote his cultural awareness. Romney usually is known for his lack of pop culture awareness. Romney also referenced I Love Lucy late last week and in May he said that his favorite book is Twilight. Back in 2008, Romney quoted ‘Who let the dogs out?”
The Kardashian reference from Romney about Obama is not the first time he compared the president to a female. Last week he likened the president to deposed French queen Marie Antoinette.
