(CINCINNATI) — Talk show host Jerry Springer, a lifelong Democrat, does not see why America would not want President Obama in the White House for another four years. The reality TV presenter lavished praise on the president after meeting with him in Cincinnati this week.
“I have met with lots of politicians, but this man is truly exceptional,” Springer said Monday, according to the Huffington Post. “He’s so competent and so smart, I just don’t see why we wouldn’t want him for four more years as president.”
Springer was once a politician himself, serving one year as mayor of Cincinnati and running failed campaigns for Congress and Ohio governor.
“I’m a long-standing supporter of the Democratic Party and believe in President Obama,” Springer said.
Springer is one of dozens of celebrities who have endorsed Obama.
A fair share of big names have put their support behind Mitt Romney as well.
