It was love at first tweet for Snooki and Sen. John McCain. The two bonded back in 2010 after McCain agreed with the “Jersey Shore” star that there should be no taxes placed on tanning beds.
In 2010, after “@Sn00ki u r right,” the 2008 Republican presidential candidate tweeted in 2010 following an episode of “Jersey Shore” where Snooki has to revert to self-tanner due to President Obama’s tanning-bed tax raise. “I would never tax your tanning bed! Pres Obama’s tax/spend policy is quite The Situation. but I do rec wearing sunscreen!”
It seems the two have not kept in contact since they forged their unlikely friendship, but in their defense, they have both been busy. Snooki has been on diaper duty with her new son, Lorenzo, while McCain, who still agrees that “we should never tax tanning beds,” has his hands full being the Senator of Arizona.
Yet, it seems over the past two years that absence has made his heart grow fonder for the new mom.
“And I want to say to Snooki, I miss you. I hope you’re happy. I hope everything’s fine with your baby and I wish you’d get rid of some of those jerks you’re hanging around with,” McCain told MTV News on Monday night in Boca Raton, Florida ahead of the final debate between President Obama and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. “But that just comes from an old geezer that doesn’t understand a lot of that lifestyle.”
Well, it seems that the feeling is mutual. MTV News caught up with Snooki on Thursday (October 25) and when we read her McCain’s heartfelt message, Snooki was eager to respond.
“I love you, John McCain,” Snooki said. “And thank you for the shout-out and Lorenzo’s doing awesome, and you should come over and bring him a present.”
Just a small hint for Sen. McCain: Snooki loves leopard!
But with less than two weeks to go until the presidential election, McCain may be too busy to pick up a baby gift for Lorenzo.
