Don’t count me as a Kim Kardashian hater. I’m agnostic. I just don’t care.
But her fans are said to be “disgusted” that Kim Kardashian, who is a self-made gazillionaire, gave her daughter a jacket she won at auction.
I mean – come on! She gave her daughter a used coat? Like she can’t afford to buy a new one?
Obviously I’m joking, because she could buy Macy’s if she felt inclined.
The jacket was a Christmas gift for her daughter North, by Northwest. Oh … my apologies. That was an Alfred Hitchcock movie starring Cary Grant. Ms. Kardashian’s daughter is just named North … North West. Just as ridiculous.
Okay, so this wasn’t just any jacket as you might imagine. It belonged to Michael Jackson. And it wasn’t just any Michael Jackson jacket. It was his “Thriller” jacket – black leather with … uh … silver looking stuff all over it. Maybe silver and rhinestones? I don’t know. Oh, and she paid a mere $65,000 for it.
“North is a really big Michael Jackson fan and we knew she would love this. We won this on an auction for Northie for Christmas,” Kim told her followers on Instagram, of which she has 155 MILLION.
Love him or hate him, Michael Jackson was the King of Pop and wildly successful, so it’s not surprising to his jacket fetched that high a price. And he was definitely a talented singer, dancer and of course, lyricist. Here’s just a sampling of the complex lyrical arrangements he fashioned.
All right – all kidding aside. “Fans” are seriously “disgusted” with a Kardashian, spending lavishly on something – or doing or saying anything not-so-bright? Please.
Unlike someone like AOC, or Pelosi, or any other of the rich and famous political class, who got that way on the public dole, Ms. Kardashian did it the right way – via capitalism. She and her family harnessed their looks and dysfunctional behavior and made “themselves” rich. And did so without any public assistance, carve-outs or political favors.
We may all poke fun at the Kardashian family, but at least they are successful as a result of what we conservatives preach about on a daily basis – the free market.
But enough of that … well … almost. Back to her disgusted fans.
This I find completely ironic, that fans of Kim Kardashian would or could possibly be upset by her spending $65k on a coat for her kid – or frankly her lavish spending on anything.
“With what ‘They’ spent on that jacket, how many children could of been fed,” one fan wrote.
What are you blaming her for? You people, who watch the family – who follow her on Instagram, Twitter and/or whatever other platform she’s on, made her what she is. You fans are the ones who follow her and her family religiously, who purchase her cosmetics and perfumes and clothing. The same “woke” crowd, who are offended by her purchase of the jacket, are the ones who made her so wealthy and revel in her excess.
What a pack of hypocrites.
Unlike the 2020 candidates on the democrat side, who wish to steal all our money and claim to want to give to the “have-nots,” Kim doesn’t want, nor has the power to command such a thing. She’s just an evil, dirty free-market capitalist pig – same as Donald Trump.
And you “woke” complainers are the ones who created her.
