Kanye West adores his fiancee.

He's so in love that he boasted about Kim Kardashian to Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show Tuesday in a pretty big way -- comparing her to Michelle Obama.

At one point in the long interview, Seacrest asks what frustrated West, and he spoke about life being unfair.

"Classism has been going on before racism. We're classist. We have our cool table ... and there's no way Kim Kardashian shouldn't be on the cover of Vogue. She's like the most intriguing woman right now. She's got Barbara Walters calling her like every day ... and collectively we're the most influential with clothing."

He added, "No one is looking at what [President] Obama is wearing. Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a [bikini] pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day... so when we [editor-in-chief of French Vogue] Carine Roitfeld supports my girl (Roitfeld put Kim on the cover of her new fashion publication, CR Fashion Book), that's a breakthrough ... there's a wall of classism that we are breaking through."

The comparison to President and Mrs. O. has been spreading around the Web.

"Ridiculous" said Sharon Osbourne on Wednesday's episode of The Talk, adding that West has "delusions of grandeur."

Don't forget that President Obama once called West a "jackass." Actually, he called him that twice -- once in 2009 and again in 2012. Looks like he may have reason to do it a third time.
