Kim Kardashian Shines at White House Correspondents Dinner Despite Digs

Kim KardashianLast night was the White House Correspondents Dinner, and much to the chagrin of many, Kim Kardashian was an invited guest. With momager Kris Jenner by her side, Kim looked radiant, classy, and took in stride the many barbs thrown her way from everyone from Jimmy Kimmel to President Obama himself.

Unlike Lindsay Lohan who showed side boob and a lot of cleavage, Kim kept things elegant and covered up in a classic, green velvet gown. There was a hint of bling at her waist and shoulders, which was gorgeous with her simple up-do. So she was definitely ready for the spotlight that shifted her way as the good-natured slams started coming at her.

Host Jimmy Kimmel, referencing the hunt for Osama bin Laden that was underway last year, said, "If you're looking for the greatest threat to America right now, she's right there. She's Kim Kardashian." Then he continued:

When you took office, the Kardashians had one reality show. Now they have four. This is not a good trend.

Then it was time for the POTUS to take his turn at Kardashian bashing:

Seriously, guys, what am I doing here? I'm the President of the United States, and I'm opening for Jimmy Kimmel? Why am I telling knock-knock jokes to Kim Kardashian? What is she famous for, anyway?

For her part, Kim seemed to take it all in stride. On Twitter she posted a series of pictures from the night, and even a picture of Obama with a tweet that read: "Pretty funny speech I must admit." She also tweeted her thanks to Fox and Greta Van Susteren for inviting her.

Finally, not one to let an opportunity to plug herself or her ambitions pass, she also teased reporters about her desire to run for mayor of Glendale, Calif. She sounds pretty serious to me.

All in all, I'd say Kim held her own pretty well in Washington. Who knows how far her political career could go.

Do you think it was appropriate for Kim Kardashian to be a guest at the White House Correspondents Dinner? Do you think she held her own there?

So i was catching up on the stir this morning with my little boy at my side as usual. He say this picture of KK and he bust out with "GREEEEN GIANT!" I couldn't help but roll with the laughter.. She does look like the female version of the green giant..

Obviously the Correspondents Dinner is meant to poke fun at politics and the Press, which is why celebrities and such are invited. Of course, if Kim Kardashian is serious about running for mayor she's going to have to be able to discuss actual issues. The residents of Glendale will also need to decide if they can overlook her initial claim to fame - starring in a sex tape, along with her two divorces and her millions, placing her squarely in the top 1%. If we are to hold our politicians to a certain standard then we'll need to shine that same spotlight on Miss Kardashian. Can anyone provide one example of her political thoughts? Something that shows how she will represent the best interests of the citizens of Glendale?

I think she took all the bashing in stride and handled herself with class and dignity. Good job Kim. She looked reserved and beautiful. Not like Lindsey who looked like a hooker.

I wonder how sara palin will respond to the POTUS joke about her? "What is the difference between a hockey mom w/lipstick (palin)& a pit bull?" The POTUS said - "the pit bull was delicious." LOL If palin can dish it out-she should be able to take it.

I am SO glad I'm not the only one going WHAT THE HELL!! LL is a DRUG addict who if ANY other person had done her crimes, we'd still be locked up. KK has come from a sex tape, rode the coat tails of Paris Hilton until her time was up, and has stepped into the spot light. She has no college degree, runs a store of clothes that she DIDN'T design (they steal ideas from other designers), and has every private moment of her life displayed on camera....then cries for privacy. Why...Why WHY were they at the White House?!

No it is not appropriate, same with Lindsay Lohan.  This is disgusting, what is our country turning into??  No wonder children in this country have the wrong role models and the wrong priorities; so does our government.
