Looking for a new retort to narcs who are always complaining that the Kardashian-Jenner family is famous for nothing? Well you’re in luck because the eldest sister has been busy enacting real change in Washington DC and all of those haters can take a seat in the corner. That’s right. Kourtney Kardashian is going to Congress. Or should I say, Kongress. Kourtney is headed to Kapitol Hill to take on outdated FDA regulations for cosmetics, something she is incredibly passionate about and wears on her face literally everyday!
On Tuesday, the tiniest Kardashian along with New Jersey Representative Frank Pallone will speak to members of Congress about the lack of oversight the FDA has on cosmetic products. So, like, if a blush could make you breakout in hives or a dry shampoo causes your hair to fall out, the FDA can’t legally recall those products. Gross.
The Cosmetics industry is one of the few industries left relatively untouched by federal regulations. In fact it’s been almost 80 years since major regulations were implemented. Currently, these products don’t need to be tested for safety. Not cool. So why does Kourtney care? Well, first of all, she is a passionate and a fighter for the people. Need I remind you of the time she reminded him “there’s people dying”? Inspiring. Secondly, she is working on a cosmetics line with Kylie and to get her name out like this is huge. I wouldn’t bat a fake mink eyelash if you told me Mama Kris was orchestrating the whole thing to make her eldest an authority on cosmetic safety before the launch of her line. In fact, I wouldn’t blink if you told me Mama Kris was secretly running the government. What can’t that woman do?
It isn’t totally clear what was discussed at the private meeting Tuesday but I do hope this is the kick off of Kardashians in politics, if for no other reason than to drive the haters insane.
