MSNBC audience boos 9-year-old girl for supporting Mitt Romney

A nine-year-old girl was booed during Tuesday's “What have we learned today?” segment on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," the Daily Caller reported. The incident occurred "on the show’s live set at Racks Downtown Eatery and Tavern in Boca Raton, Fla.’s Mizner Park," Jeff Poor wrote.

Her crime? She said that Mitt Romney should win November's election.

During the segment, co-host Mika Brzezinski introduced viewers to 9-year-old Annabelle.

“I have Annabelle,” she said. “She is nine and a half. She has four brothers so she kind of feels my pain this morning. But Annabelle, who do you think should win the election, Annabelle?”

“Mitt Romney,” Annabelle replied.

Her response was instantly met with a chorus of boos from the audience.

“Booing a 9-year-old girl?” co-host Willie Geist asked. “Clean it up.”

“Booing a 9-year-old girl, a lot of these people must have come down from Philly or something," said Time Magazine's Joe Klein.

“Santa Claus is next,” Joe Scarborough added.

"I really don't think they were boos. I think it was more like 'whoosh!,' the sound of MSNBC going down the drain," one commenter wrote at the Daily Caller.

Another commenter expressed surprise that the hosts defended the young girl, observing that Chris Matthews was "obviously not in attendance."

"Don't worry," another reader replied. "Matthews will be doing an entire 1/2 hour tonight on how Annabelle is a racist."

Video of the incident can be seen here.

    If that isn't shallow, I don't know what is.
