“Desperate Housewives” actress Eva Longoria stands by President Barack Obama “no matter what,” but the Democratic politician has lost the faith of another invaluable supporter: Hulk Hogan.

During a Thursday appearance on “Fox and Friends,” the burly, bandana-wearing blond explained why he no longer supports our commander-in-chief.

“I was a big Obama supporter and kinda, like, believed everything he said he was gonna do,” Hogan said. “But now that nothing’s happened,” Hogan said he has had second thoughts about our nation’s leader.

The issue goes beyond Obama’s performance as president. The Hulk was also upset that Obama entered this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner to the tough guy’s song, “Real American,” without first being granted permission.

“I kinda was a little upset that he didn’t ask me permission to use my music,” Hogan said.

Hogan was an early Obama supporter. At the beginning of 2008, the professional wrestler expressed confidence in Obama as a presidential contender.

“If I had to step out, and say who I really believe in — that catches my ear, that makes sense, that really can make a change — I would say Obama,” Hogan told The New York Times.
