Warren Buffett Does Not Know Who Kim Kardashian Is
3:00 pm, January 15th | by Hillary Reinsberg
Is she a businesswoman, or isn’t she? Well, let’s put it this way — she’s not in Warren Buffett’s Rolodex.
When Time asked Buffett if he was familiar with the reality star, he said, “I’ve seen her name. But I wouldn’t be able to tell what she does but put her name in the paper.”
Why would Time lower itself to ask Buffett — the “oracle” of all things financial, about a Kardashian? It was about taxes, of course. Activists have complained that Kardashian doesn’t pay enough in taxes, given the frankly absurd amount of money she pulled in this year. And Buffett, as you know, has been an advocate of raising taxes on the rich. See the connection now?
We won’t jump to conclusions, but there’s a good chance Kim’s not too familiar with Warren’s work either. After all, she didn’t know what Occupy Wall Street was.
