This 8th grade graduate absolutely nails it doing impressions of the presidential candidates at his graduation speech at Thomas Middle School in Arlington Heights, Illinois.
He did Trump, Clinton, Cruz and Sanders and had voices as well as body language in expert form, and also threw in some Obama!
This writer thought his Sanders impression was the best, Just Sayin!
While his father asked him to remain unidentified, the YouTube comments say his name was John, so we will call him that!
John has been watching the 2016 campaigns very closely. He included Trump’s habit for bringing up China and Sanders’s Democratic Socialist views making everything free in his graduation speech.
NewsChannel 9 reports:
About 350 graduating eighth graders were asked to prepare speeches for the school’s commencement ceremony. This boy — one of four picked in his class — blew the lid off the school gym by delivering spot-on impersonations of presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, Democrats Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a one-liner from Sen. Ted Cruz.
“He has a passion for politics,” the boy’s father said.
The family actually traveled to Iowa for the caucuses at the boy’s request, his father added.
The boy’s next stop is high school, but one wouldn’t be surprised to see him end up at “Saturday Night Live.”
It is too bad that more young people are not as involved.
I recently reported on third grader Logan Autry was been banned from wearing his red “Make America Great Again” Trump hat to school because it was making other students feel bad.
Logan is quite the grassroots activist at school!
“I’ve told them his policies on illegal immigration, and our Second Amendment, and our First Amendment and all of our amendments that need to be protected, which are not going to be an amendment at all if Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders gets elected,” he told local KFSN news.
Here’s “John’s” graduation speech:
