The election’s over, ladies and gentlemen.
On Monday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, Alana Thompson, the star of TLC's runaway hit Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, officially endorsed Barack Obama (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
As amazing as it may seem, on Monday’s program, Kimmel actually asked his seven-year-old guest about presidential politics.
“Do you know who Mitt Romney is?”
When she said no, Kimmel asked, “Do you know who Barack Obama is?”
“The president?” Thompson replied.
“He’s the president, yeah,” said Kimmel who the then mentioned how recently on the Kelly & Michael Show, Romney claimed he preferred Snooki over Honey Boo Boo.
“Now I have to ask you,” Kimmel continued, “who are you going to support for president: Mitt Romney or Barack Obama?”
“Who said that?” asked Thompson.
“Mitt Romney said that,” replied Kimmel.
“Barack Obama,” said Thompson.
Well, that settles that!
Wasn't it generous of Kimmel to get this "endorsement" from Thompson on the eve of the most important debate in Obama's life?
