Kids say the darnedest things, especially when they are pointing out the adolescent antics of a man who has dragged the 2016 primary race out of the political arena and into the school yard. Donald Trump, the GOP front-runner, is really only good for one thing — comedy. Trump has no real grasp of foreign policy, economics, or what it means to be presidential, but he does generate hours upon hours of comedy fodder for the late night talk show circuit and is an endless source of material for comedians like Bill Maher, Lee Camp, and Jimmy Dore.
This week on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, the late night comedy host once again took it to Donald Trump in a delightful segment called, “Kid Impressions: Donald Trump Edition”. In the segment, parents sent in clips of their kids doing their best, or worst (depending on how you look at it) Trump impressions. The fact that the children mocking Trump, and the actual speeches given by the most childish narcissist to ever step onto a debate stage are pretty much indistinguishable, just goes to show the absurdity of the Trump campaign and the empty mindlessness of his supporters.
In the video montage dedicated to humiliating Trump, children do impressions and quote a few of Trump’s most ridiculous catch-phrases, such as:
If you don’t want to build a wall, you’re a loser. Vote for Trump and make America great again. Or, you’re gonna be a loser.
I’m doing so good and I’m going to win and once I win, we will win so much that everyone will be sick of winning.
While the skit is adorable and humorous, it also rings true of a very sad fact in Republican politics right now. Because the biggest, loudest baby is the one who generates the most popularity and connects the deepest with a base that has not only become angry and uninformed, but throws a tantrum every time they don’t get their way. Is it any wonder that the GOP is in its death throws when a petulant child like Trump can so easily swoop in and hijack the majority of the party?
At the moment, there is no telling how this comedy of errors will end, only that no matter who wins the GOP nomination the Republican party has drastically lowered the bar of conservative politicking for generations to come.
