Kim Kardashian West is a famous person. She is also a wealthy person and her extended family has been at the forefront of the “reality stars” entertainment economy for some time. She is married to Kayne West. Together they are very very wealthy. And like all wealthy people, they live in very rarified air. And like most one-percenters, they are narcissistic in both their pursuit of wealth and their achievement of wealth. It’s also Kim Kardashian West’s 40th birthday!

On Tuesday, Kim Kardashian West put up a post of glamour shots showing a big crew of friends and family living it up in some tropical area. She wrote, “After 2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time.” I mean, after “2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine,” I’m surprised that people were “surprised” by Mrs. Kardashian West’s luxurious trip. Of course, the tone-deaf, privileged, and ill-timed boasting Kardashian West was very quickly memed into the history books. This was because a) hundreds of thousands of people are dying and our Republican-led government isn’t doing anything about it, b) hundreds of thousands of people are dying and our Republican-led government isn’t doing anything about it, and c) hundreds of thousands of people are dying and our Republican-led government isn’t doing anything about it.

Warms the heart doesn’t it?

Good point.

You know it. Let’s lighten the load.

Fugetaboutit.

Almost too close to the bone here.

And darker.

And darker.

MOMA stepped up.

Here’s a reminder.

And let’s lighten it up again.

The fact that she has the money to not worry about a lack of stimulus while families are just gutted by this very preventible pandemic means she is a part of the problem. There are very few people in her position. Very few. Maybe a couple of thousand people in a world filled with billions of people. Her lack of understanding isn’t unique to her, but don’t feel sorry for her for getting criticized for it. She doesn’t care about you. While the extremely wealthy among us might do cool things from time to time, like championing an end to mass incarceration, in the end, they aren’t on your side. They are only and forever on their own side.

God I hate that woman. I’ve always hated that woman. The word BORING doesn’t even begin to cover it.

I’ve never watched the Kardashian’s idiotic tv show. Somehow, I just couldn’t stomach the bullshit. And don’t get me started on Kanye who is on the ballot for president in Colorado.

Give me a break. Why the need to share all their private lives with the whole world. Most people don’t give a shit. I wonder what they will do come 2021 when the show is cancelled
