John McCain: Heidi Montag is a ‘talented actress’

John McCain is seriously, I can’t fucking believe it, actually running with the Heidi Montag endorsement. Clearly he’s never seen The Hills despite exclusively telling Time’s Swampland Blog yesterday that he never misses an episode. To prove my point, McCain called Heidi a “very talented actress” on Morning Joe today. Us Magazine has the rundown:

“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. “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).

Wow, and what I thought was just the random, vapid babblings of a fake-titted reality star has now become a national debacle. Heidi Montag could possibly influence who is the next president of the United States. I’d put a shotgun in my mouth if my face wasn’t so goddamn beautiful. We’re going to need people like me to comfort the women in this time of crisis. I’ve set up shelter in my jacuzzi as our our forefathers would’ve wanted. Right, Thomas Jefferson’s ghost? High-five!

NOTE: Video of McCain after the jump. Good/What the hell? stuff happens around :48 second mark. We are so screwed.
