Talk show host Rush Limbaugh criticized President Barack Obama’s celebrity fund-raising ties on Tuesday — labeling him “Barack Hussein Kardashian” — and charging that he’s now even more out of touch with average Americans.

“This is Celebrity of the United States kind of stuff,” Limbaugh said on his Tuesday radio show. He referenced Obama’s ties to former “Sex and the City” star Sarah Jessica Parker and Vogue magazine editor Anna Wintour, who are raising money for his re-election bid. “This is not President of the United States kind of stuff. It’s not trying to relate to the average person.

“Everybody is now laughing about this and mocking it and making fun of it and poking holes at it, just like we are here,” Limbaugh continued. “It’s an indication once again how out of touch they really are, how distant they have become from the people who make this country work. It’s an indication of what they think the strong drawing power of the presidency is.”

These ties, the talk show host said, has earned Obama the title “Barack Hussein Kardashian.”

“He’s becoming ‘Barack Kardashian,’ ” Limbaugh said. “I tell you that’s what’s become of him. He is becoming the male Kim Kardashian with this stuff and it has been building. He is Celebrity of the United States. He is not the president. And he is actively — and his whole team is out there pushing this. It’s ‘Barack Hussein Kardashian,’ is what he has become.”

“I’m just telling you, this is not mass-appeal stuff,” Limbaugh added. “This is not — [It's] pop culture. This is pure pop culture and where they think their strength lies, in sure banal idiocy.”
