Kind of like how you stopped listening to OK Go when your mom told you all about this great video of guys dancing on treadmills she saw on the Internet, Mitt Romney’s bald-faced lie that he likes Snooki is truly a sign Jersey Shore‘s time has passed.
Mittens and his wife Ann Romney will divulge their pop culture guilty pleasures on a pre-taped interview on Live! With Kelly And Michael airing Tuesday. "I’m kind of a Snooki fan," Mitt says, as quoted by the New York Post. He also, weirdly and creepily, lauds the 100-lb meatball for losing her baby weight so quickly. "Look how tiny she’s gotten. She’s lost weight. She’s energetic. Just her spark-plug personality is kind of fun." Mittens then pretended to know what a Honey Boo Boo is and his wife Ann dissed the Kardashians: "Who can keep up with the Kardashians?"
Ba-dum-dum! They’ll be here all week, folks!
Not that we needed any more proof that the Romney’s are out of touch with the average American, this dated-reference attempt at a humanizing moment proves they’re out of touch pop culturally as well.
