The President of the United States denied Kim Kardashian.

I have a feeling it wasn't Bill Clinton.

On Wednesday, President Obama was in Los Angeles for the "Ambassador for Humanity" award at Steven Spielberg's USC Shoah Foundation gala.

"Kim's table wasn't close to President Obama's," a source reportedly told Radar Online, but she "enlisted one of her minions to scout out the opportunity to meet him."

Kim Kardashian has minions? This can't be good news.

"Obama's table and surrounding area was swarming with Secret Service, and security was very tight," the source said. "Kim's lackey was told to go pound sand, and it was conveyed to Kim that she wouldn't be able to meet him."

Of course, he mingled with other celebrity guests, as Spielberg reportedly brought several friends over to meet him "for about an hour," the source says -- just not Kardashian.

Can anyone explain why she was even in the room?

"Kim was let down and disappointed," the source said. "She didn't understand why she just couldn't say hello to him. Ever since landing the Vogue cover, her ego is even more out of control. In her mind, she and Kanye are more popular than President Obama and the first lady!"

As you may or may not know, President Obama doesn't seem like the biggest fan of Kardashian or her fiancee Kanye West, whom he has called a "jackass" in public. He also turned down Kardashian's offer to help out with his last campaign.

"Kim is political poison," the source said. "Having her involved in a political event or with a candidate is the last thing people who are serious about getting elected want."

That's discrimination against shallow, self-absorbed, sex-tape-making, money-grubbing, publicity whores. And that's not right.

Obama commented on the couple last year, saying, "We weren't exposed to things we didn't have in the same way kids these days are ... 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."

West fired back, "I don't care if you're the president ... He shouldn't mention my baby mama's name, 'cause we both from Chicago."

Uh ... OK.

"Kim truly thinks she is American royalty, and she and Kanye are a global couple powerhouse," the insider said. "She doesn't understand why President Obama wouldn't want to meet her."

Of course she doesn't.
