Kids Tell Hillary Clinton Why a Woman Can't Be President, Show We've Still Got a Long Way to Go

Jayden is not messing around.

In every single "Kids Comment on Fill-in-the-Blank" video, there's always that one precious child who makes you wonder if he's a mole the producers planted to shake things up. In this clip from Jimmy Kimmel, that little rabble-rouser is Jayden, who tells Hillary Clinton to her face a woman can't be president.

"Old biases are hard to shake," Kimmel said as he introduced the video. "Our best hope for equality is our next generation. Children are our future whether they like it or not, and I wondered if they might have a more evenhanded take on this kind of discrimination. Things have changed a lot over the last 30 years."

But oooooh they have not. While Belle and Sydney predict a female president would end wars "so people could be more healthy and won't die," Jayden and Andrew said she'd be too scared/too busy painting the White House pink to fulfill her duties as Commander in Chief. 😢

In the end, it was Chillary (opens in new tab) herself who took the most evenhanded approach, concluding "Well, you know, we haven't had a woman to be president yet, so we need to have a woman to be president and then you would have more evidence to base your decision on."

Watch the video below. And pray for the youths.
