The scoop from Washington

Obama no, Michelle yes on Malia, Sasha viewing Kardashians

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--President Obama would rather Malia and Sasha not watch some of the Kardashian family reality shows, but First Lady Michelle Obama sees no harm--as long as her daughters realize some of the stuff they do is crazy.

Mrs. Obama made her comments Monday during a roundtable with journalists. She brought up the Kardashians when asked if she sets a limit on her daughters' television viewing.

"Barack really thinks some of the Kardashians - when they watch that stuff - he doesn't like that as much," she admitted, "but I sort of feel like if we're talking about it, and I'm more concerned with how they take it in - what did you learn when you watched that. And if they're learning the right lessons, like 'that was crazy,' then I'm like, okay," she said.
