Huntsman Daughters Interview Romney Bobblehead in Lost Video

  bootlegs

our father's daughters no more!

Huntsman daughters Abby, Liddy and Mary Anne had a couple of great videos during their dad’s mercurial campaign. They were the only entertaining part — besides, maybe, “Did you hear what I just said?” — of the whole thing. But their best work was never actually released…until now! An ABC News station got a hold of this Romney-bashing video, in which the two non-blondes in the trio don blonde wigs to match their sister Liddy and interview a bobbleheaded version of Mitt Romney on a show they call “Foxes and Friends.” The girls were declared to have “gone rogue” by a campaign insider a couple of months ago, so it’s no wonder this was never officially released. Now it does, happily, take the shine off Huntsman’s already completely unbelievable and dull endorsement of Romney.

The video, which so far only appears in an ABC News segment:

If the Huntsman girls weren’t actually funny, it might have seemed a little too ambitious that the telegenic 20-somethings kept showing up on TV. But as Abby said in a GQ interview last year, it wasn’t like she could get a gig on Fox News if she wanted to, because “I’m not blonde.” Fittingly, in this video the three do their best airhead anchor impression, repeating their lines unnecessarily, checking their manicures, calling Romney a “cornball,” and asking tough questions, like whether he’d be prepared to face a honey badger given his hunting experience is only with “small varmint.”

Big-headed renderings of Romney in the media now outnumber actual Romney media appearances by something like 234829852810026 to 1. [ABC 4 via BuzzFeed]
