It looks like Mitt Romney‘s been keeping up with the Kardashians.
“I’ve been looking at some video clips on YouTube of President Obama, then candidate Obama, going through Iowa making promises,” Romney told a crowd at a campaign stop in Council Bluffs.
“I think the gap between his promises and his performance is the largest I’ve seen, well, since the Kardashian wedding and the promise of ‘til death do we part.”
Not known for his sense of humor, Romney did manage to get a loud laugh from the crowd with the line, which one Fox News correspondent noted was only “the second joke he’s made” on the campaign trail.
But if he really wants to get a rise out of Obama, Romney may have to pick another pop culture reference – the President told Jay Leno in October that he has never seen an episode of the Kardashians’ many reality TV franchises.
“I have not seen the show,” Obama said at the time. “I am probably a little biased against reality TV, partly because there’s this program on C-Span called ‘Congress.’ I have not seen the show… I think the girls have seen it.”
