Vice President Joe Biden doesn’t meet the typical demographics for Honey Boo Boo fan, but then again, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo has managed to cross all cultural lines. Stars such as Miley Cyrus and Snooki have confessed to joining the Honey Boo Boo mania, so why not a politician?
We’d like to think it was all a bunch of malarkey, but Joe Biden has officially confessed to an unforgivable crime: watching Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. During an interview aired on a radio station in Miami, Biden explained that, typically, his pop culture understanding is a bit lacking. Which, of course, makes total sense. Who has time for reality TV when they’re out campaigning?
Oh wait, Joe Biden does. “I haven’t spent most of my time with pop culture. Honey Boo Boo is not top on my list, but I am aware – just, you know, by catching snippets on Air Force Two.”
Not only did Biden admit to having watched Honey Boo Boo’s antics, he also complimented the little pageant princess on being “quite a phenomenon.”
Although Biden has watched Here Comes Honey Boo Boo on more than one occasion, the reality hit is not his go-to program (phew!). He prefers sitcoms, especially Modern Family and Parks and Recreation, explaining, “those are ones that I spend most of my time with.”
You’re not fooling us, Joe. Given the choice between Modern Family and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, we know you’ll “holla for a dolla” any day.
