Mitt Romney, you better redneck-ognize!
Days after troubled starlet Linsday Lohan came out in favor of the Republican nominee, President Obama can now boast of his own dubious political endorsement. During a visit to “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Monday night, Alana Thompson, the pint-sized star of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” expressed her support for the incumbent president — or, as she called him, “Marack Obama.”
To be fair, Alana didn’t exactly volunteer her opinion; it took considerable prompting from Kimmel to get the aspiring beauty queen, who was joined by her mother, June Shannon, to weigh in on the election. Sensing that his young guest was getting bored with the conversation the grown-ups were having (sample topics: coupons, the fleeting nature of reality stardom), Kimmel decided to shift the focus back to Alana.
He brought up the subject of Romney’s recent appearance on “Live! With Michael and Kelly,” where the Republican expressed his preference for Snooki over Honey Boo Boo. Although Alana was unaware of Romney’s taste in reality television — or indeed, of Romney at all — Kimmel asked who she would be supporting this year.
