MSNBC fans jeered a 9-year-old girl because she told the hosts of “Morning Joe” that she supports former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney for president.
The heckling occurred during a morning show segment filmed at Racks Downtown Eatery and Tavern in Boca Raton, Fla.
Co-host Mika Brzezinski introduced the child as “Annabelle.” After some small talk, she asked the child about the election.
“Annabelle, who do you think should win the election, Annabelle,” she asked.
“Mitt Romney,” the child replied.
A chorus of boos can be heard in the background, according to video provided by The Daily Caller. And the heckling even prompted some of the MSNBC anchors to defend the little girl.
“Booing a 9-year-old girl?” co-host Willie Geist said. “Clean it up.”
