Obama and Romney both made appearances in a video on the CMT Music Awards show Wednesday nightÂ—both seeking the country music fan vote.
The show opened with a “campaign” fight between hosts Toby Keith and Kristen Bell. Both were “fighting” to host the show alone. They even ran negative campaign ads against each other before Willie Nelson made the final decision to have them host together.
Watch the political show opening video here on the CMT website.
President Obama says, “I want them both.”
Mitt Romney managed to actually be funny after saying he too wanted both of them to host. “See, I just put two people back to work,” Romney said. “You’re welcome, America.”
Guess who else makes an appearance…none other than “drunken” Kathie Lee and Hoda from the Today show. (There was no wine in the clip so maybe they were sober.)
Matthew McConaughey, Jon Bon Jovi, and journalist Steve Kroft also chimed in for the bit.
Keith and Bell end up being escorted through the crowd in a giant, red Solo cup (for Keith’s hit song, “Red Solo Cup”). Even after all that negativity, they managed to put it aside and get on with the show. Do you think Obama and Romney would ever make such a gesture? Or better yet, why hasn’t Congress already made such a gesture?
Political views aside, this was funny video. Enjoy.
