On his show Thursday night (or very early Friday morning, if you prefer), ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel mentioned a brand new toy sensation inspired by the strong-yet-sensitive Speaker John Boehner.
After showing several images of Boehner tearing up over an artist (Nancy Pelosi would’ve been crying as well, Kimmel explained, but she had her tear ducts removed years ago), Kimmel pointed out other instances that he’s shed tears.
“What happens when he listens to Adele?,” the host wondered. “John Boehner cries a lot. Here he is crying at a college commencement speech… election results… watching party that he won. This is, I think just after the last episode of Desperate Housewives… This guy, he’s super tan. He cries. He drinks. He should be Speaker of the Jersey Shore house. He’s like a menopausal Oompa-Loompa.”
“I actually like it,” Kimmel continued. “I think it shows a sensitive side you don’t usually see in a politician, and it’s even created a new toy sensation among little girls.”
Introducing “Boehner Baby:” The soft, sensitive baby doll that cries real tears.
