Hillary Clinton, you may have one supporter in Georgia! June Shannon, a.k.a. Mama June, a.k.a. Honey Boo Boo's mother, told TMZ that she thinks it's time to have a woman in the White House.

Upon leaving the airport in New York, the newly blond mother of four told a reporter that it's high time we got some estrogen up in that piece. When asked if it was time for a woman to be in the White House, she replied:

Yeah I really do. There's been enough males in the White House. It's time for us females to take over the country for a minute.

She went on to say that her daughter Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon would be best equipped of all her children to take on the task, because she showed an interest when the family visited Washigton, D.C.

At the White House, Pumpkin "saw one of the guards and left a sticky note" for Obama, she said.

On one of their last trips to L.A., Honey Boo Boo went ahead and stuck her entire dome inside the Sprinkles cupcake machine. Which, to be fair, is something we've probably all wanted to do.
