    Alana Thompson 'Honey Boo Boo' stopped by Jimmy Kimmel. It turns out she's an Obama supporter.

    Lindsay Lohan recently expressed her support of Mitt Romney. President Barack Obama has Honey Boo Boo in his corner.

    Alana Thompson, the 7-year-old star of the series "Here Comes Honey-Boo-Boo" stopped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live" with her mother, June Shannon. Honey Boo-Boo wrangled the audience's attention with her restlessness and unexpected outbursts. At one point she yelled, "You better red-neck-ognize!"

    The stars talked about nicknames, couponing and the Kardashians (which they said they do not watch). They also talked politics.

    Kimmel informed Honey Boo-Boo that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney said on “Live! With Michael and Kelly" that he preferred "Jersey Shore" starlet Snooki over Honey Boo Boo. He then asked which candidate she would vote for, that is, if she could vote. Alana announced her support of Obama, or as she put it "Marack Obama."

    Also during the interview, June Shannon revealed that much of the money the family has received from their show has gone to a trust fund for all of her children. She also said some money goes to community outreach programs like The UR Brand that advocates for anti-bullying.
