Hey, teens – Levi Johnston says it’s okay to get knocked up so long as you take responsibility for the kid when it arrives! Also, he really doesn’t get this whole global warming thing, or at least he’s incapable of answering a straightforward question about it during a TV interview.
Actually, the 19-year-old father of Bristol Palin’s son Tripp is kinda incapable of answering any political or even not-so-political question, as he showed on an appearance on Lawrence O’Donnell’s MSNBC show this week. The video pretty much speaks for itself – this kid is clearly desperate to extend his 15 minutes of fame. There’s no other reason he could possibly be running for mayor of Wasilla, because he’s the most clueless person since Alicia Silverstone circa 1995.
You’d think Johnston might have learned from the whole Sarah Palin-Katie Couric debacle a couple years ago, when Couric stumped Palin when she asked which newspapers and magazines the then-Republican vice presidential candidate read. You’d be wrong. Johnston got tripped up by the same not-so-hardball question: What has he been reading as he campaigns for Wasilla mayor?
“I read Frontiersman every once in a while,” a scruffy Johnston said. “I’m not gonna sit here and tell you I read a lot of newspapers.”
Good news is, he can at least read; answering questions is another matter.
Here’s a link to the video.
