Fleming Guest Stars on ‘My Big Redneck Vacation’
Posted at 7:35 p.m. on Feb. 7, 2013
Rep. John Fleming will be making his cable debut at 9 p.m. Saturday on Country Music Television, after the road-tripping Clampets clan ran him down while in town filming “My Big Redneck Vacation.”
The show, which chronicles the Shreveport, La.-based family’s misadventures across America, travels to Washington, D.C., during this weekend’s episode and, naturally, goes all political.
According to a CMT synopsis, the Clampet clan causes some sort of ruckus at the White House, chats with its congressman, Fleming, in his Capitol Hill office and wraps up its visit by entering a cardboard boat regatta in a makeshift vessel decorated with Fleming campaign memorabilia.
A Fleming aide said the Louisiana Republican enjoyed meeting the roving reality TV stars but noted that the congressman is not heavily invested in the show.
“Beyond the news, he doesn’t watch much TV,” the aide told HOH.
