Forget George Clooney, Anna Wintour, Scarlett Johansson, and pretty much every other celebrity this side of Clint Eastwood and Jon Voight. Last night on Jimmy Kimmel‘s late-night ABC talk show, President Barack Obama got the celebrity endorsement of a lifetime.
The words of praise came from Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, the 7-year-old hyperactive star of TLC’s popular reality series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
No word yet on why Honey Boo Boo supports the president, but some conservative analysts likely suspect she is looking for a federal “Go Go Juice” subsidy.
During her interview on the late-night program, Kimmel told her that GOP candidate Mitt Romney (whom Ms. Boo Boo hasn’t heard of) said he prefers Jersey Shore star Snooki over Honey Boo Boo Child Whatever Thingamajig.
This did not sit well with the feisty reality star, who then flatly said “Barack Obama” when asked who she will “support” in this upcoming election. The crowd wildly applauded.
And then she went back to fidgeting around in her chair, giggling at herself in the TV monitors, and shouting catchphrases like “You better redneck-ognize!”
Oh, isn’t she just?
