Kim Kardashian to Barack Obama: I Miss You Already!

by at .

Kim Kardashian is not ready to let Barack Obama go.

On Friday, around the time that Donald Trump was being sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, the reality star was sharing a handful of throwback photos on her official app/website.

The pictures featured Kim, husband Kanye West, daughter North and a certain now-former Commander-in-Chief, smiling and interacting with members of this famous family.

""Thank you for leading our country. You will be missed," Kim wrote as a caption above all the images.

Kimye and POTUS

Kardashian met Obama a few times over the years.

She and Kanye attended fundraisers in honor of the President, despite some controversial remarks he made about Kimye back in August of 2013.

Speaking to Amazon employees in Chattanooga, Obama said Kardashian and West had essentially poisoned the American Dream by giving fans unfair expectations to live up to.

At the time, Obama argued that, just a few years prior, "kids weren't monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success.”

He explained in more detail:

"There has been a shift in culture. We weren't exposed to the things we didn't have in the same way that kids these days are...

"There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous."

In other words: Kim and Kanye sent a bad message over the years by talking about their gold toilets and flaunting their wealth so often on social media.

The irony now, of course, is that Kardashian got robbed in October.

The armed assailants who broke into her Paris apartment were inspired to do so by pictures of a $4 million ring she had bragged about on Instagram and Twitter.

In her series of social media photos since this incident, Kim has actually been accused of acting poor, as she tries to learn from past mistakes, now aware that there's a danger to showing off some luxury items in front of millions of people.

So Obama was kind of right back in the day.

Kim, meanwhile, was not the only member of her family to honor Obama on his final day in office.

Khloe Kardashian also used her Instagram account to share a sweet photo of Barack and Michelle Obama, including with it a sweet message.

"I'm asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about change -- but in yours," Khloe wrote, quoting the ex-President and adding"

"Terribly sad to see you go but honored I was able to watch firsthand. I hope our history books will do you justice."
