Nature, famously, abhors a vacuum, and as the present incumbents of the White House — the Yuge Orange one and his Fembot missus — provide neither style nor substance, the Yanks have been desperately trying to find political and fashion inspo. Enter Kim Kardashian “America’s New First Lady”, according to the latest Interview magazine cover. Of course, this has caused bother. First, Kim has kept her clothes on. Then there’s the clothes themselves — Kim is doing an impersonation of the late Jackie Kennedy during her White House years. The only thing that could have caused a bigger stir was if Kim had donned a blonde wig and a pie-crust collar and had her picture taken in front of the Taj Mahal. (The irony is that Diana and Jackie are even more powerful in death than they ever were in life.) Then there’s Kim’s husband, Yeezus himself, Kanye West. The cover has sparked fears that Kanye is preparing to run for the highest office. And why not? America is the land of opportunism.
