After President Obama criticized Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in a recent interview, Kim's mom Kris Jenner is now responding to the comments and defending her daughter. In a recent interview, President Obama dissed Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, saying they have essentially changed the definition of the "American Dream," into something that is now unattainable for most people.

Regarding the "American Dream," he said, "I think there has also been a shift in culture. We weren't exposed to the things we didn't have in the same way that kids these days are. There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Kids weren't monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing or where Kanye West was going on vacation and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success."

As one might expect, this didn't sit well with Kim's momager Kris all!

On Friday's episode of her talk show, Kris challenged the remarks, saying, "I wasn't aware that you could only set the bar so high and that we could only dream so big. I was taught dream big, work hard and you can have whatever you wanted."

She continued, "I bet the President has some friends with 10,000 square foot houses and that he wouldn't mind going over there."

Then, in direct defense of Kim and Kanye, she added, "Kanye West doesn't go on vacation ever-- and Kim Kardashian is the hardest working young lady in the world."

Kim does work really hard, so we can see where she's coming from with that, but do you think Obama made a good point also?

Whose side are you on in this one: Kris Jenner's or President Obama's?
