Jane Lynch Meets Mitt Romney: GOP Candidate 'Does Not Know How To Talk To People'

Posted: Updated:

Jane Lynch wants to make one thing quite clear: she is no Mitt Romney fan.

The 51-year-old "Glee" star told Politico that she wasn't impressed after having a run-in with the Republican presidential candidate at an event leading up to the NASCAR Daytona 500 auto race over the weekend.

"It was like small talk, but he didn’t really hear a word I said," Lynch recalled. "It affirmed for me that the guy does not know how to relate to people."

The outspoken actress, who is married to Lara Embry, took time to reiterate her support for President Obama even though she's previously been quoted as calling him a "huge disappointment" when it comes to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights, and added that she wasn't concerned about a GOP candidate beating him in November. "He’s one of those people who moves slowly, so at first I was like come on, get a move on," she noted. "But he’s done great things -- rescued the car industry, killed Osama bin Laden and the right doesn't want to give him any credit for it."
