They're America's First Family of Extreme Over-Sharers, and the Kardashians now seemingly exist only for the consumption of the masses. And evidently, even themselves. 

I'm always one to defend the Kardashians. The family of pseudo-celebrities turned media "moguls" struck me as harmlessly entertaining, even when their moments of actual self-awareness were few on far between on their original E! reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall, Kylie...and Rob. I've always had a sweet spot for the lone son of the clan, always getting bossed around by his larger-than-life sisters. So nice. So hot. His tweets are mostly incoherent, but when he gets fucked up the good shit really comes out:

It's this kind of astounding confidence in the midst of utter irrelevance that makes him a Kardashian to the core, which is ironically also why I'm willing to give him a pass. And because...yeah, thanks. 

Sister Kimmie K took to Twitter moments later though, ready to pass her own signature brand of judgment (it's available at Sears):

I love you KK, but it took me less than 30 seconds of reviewing your tweets to find something that immediately made me cringe:

"Also try 'Pot/Kettle Black' available exclusively at Walgreens!"

Kim is quick to forget the embarrassing situations in Rob's life that she herself orchestrated. It's not so much a fact as it is a way of life for the Kardashian women.

Like when they wanted him to become an underwear model! It was a glorious episode, but became retroactively heartbreaking when he would later decide that he wanted to model internationally - and his family all tell him no

The poor thing. He just wants some attention! Specifically, to his crotch. But it's not all misery. The universe has thrown him a bone it seems, as no one else even needs to be there.

UPDATE: Apparently the initial tweets in question were not actually from Rob, but rather from his sister Khloe posing as him. Because that's totally normal.

Where are we on the "launching the Kardashians into space" initiative?

We have the technology!
