John McCain was teased on MSNBC's Morning Joe Thursday for saying he was "honored" to have Heidi Montag's endorsement.See Also:
"We were extraordinarily impressed at your ability to look right into the camera and lie about the fact that you're a huge fan of The Hills," host Joe Scarborough said (at 48 seconds into the video above). "Heidi Montag on your side – you got that going for you."
"That was pretty good wasn't it?" McCain replied. "Well, she's a very talented actress."
"He did it again!" Scarborough remarked.
The presumptive Republican nominee for president then noted his other celebrity supporters: Sylvester Stallone, Clint Eastwood and Jon Voight (not to mention Angie Harmon).
On Wednesday, following Montag's endorsement in Us Weekly, McCain told Time.com's Swampland blog, "I want to assure her that I never miss an episode of The Hills, especially since the new season started."
"I'm voting for John McCain," Montag, 21, told Us Weekly in its latest issue, on newsstands now. "I'm a Republican and McCain has a lot of experience."
When beau Spencer Pratt cautioned her about making an endorsement, Montag replied, "I don't think anyone cares who Heidi Montag votes for."
