‘Honey Boo Boo’ Alana Thompson Endorses Barack Obama on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ (VIDEO)
Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson and her mother, “Mama June” Shannon, stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday night, and the late night host couldn’t help but get political with the famous 7-year-old.
With the second presidential debate approaching on Tuesday, Kimmel asked the tiny reality star who she supports in the election — but first, not without letting her know Romney is may not be her biggest fan.
“They asked Mitt Romney if he preferred Snooki or Honey Boo Boo,” Kimmel said. “He said he preferred Snooki.”
So who did Honey Boo Boo prefer?
Kimmel then asked the aspiring “beauty queen/teacher/momma/nurse” which presidential candidate she would vote for if she were able to. Her answer was “Barack Obama.” Of course, Honey Boo Boo had no idea who Romney was.
Could this be the celebrity endorsement Obama needs to win the election? With everyone from Jay-Z and Beyonce to George Clooney and Eva Longoria on his side, chances are, Honey Boo Boo’s endorsement won’t mean much in the long-run.
$2,000 and $7,000per episode for the hit show when it launched this summer. Mama June insisted, however, that when it comes to the family’s Hollywood income, she has her kids’ future interests at heart.
“This journey may last six months or it could last a year, but in 10 years, I don’t want Alana or any of the kids to think, ‘Oh my God. I have nothing to show for it.’ So I wanted to put [the money] in trust funds for the kids. And the other money goes to our community outreach programs, like the UR Brand that we raised for anti-bullying.”
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo airs Wednesdays at 10 PM ET on TLC.
