New Video Shows How Kids React to Donald Trump

“This guy is mean.”

According to a Gallup poll, 63 percent of American adults have an unfavorable view of Donald Trump. Which isn’t surprising given his childish debate antics, racist policies, and complete disregard for the truth. As adults, we can scoff at him all we like, but every day the billionaire bully’s image is on display for millions of impressionable children across the country. While they may recognize that his behavior is deplorable, as a country, we’ve granted him the stage time —and what you permit, you teach.


A new video by Kids React shows the impression that Trump is making on America’s kids. Although their reactions are funny, it’s hard as an adult to not feel embarrassed that we’re allowing this to happen. In the video, the kids are blown away when Trump says the million-dollar loan given to him by his parents was a “small amount.” When it comes to Trump’s ability to speak his mind, they find it admirable, but according to one girl, “his mind isn’t right.” The overwhelming opinion of kids in the video is that Trump is mean and racist. “If you want to be a president you shouldn’t be a racist,” one boy says. Wouldn’t it be great if more adults could come to this conclusion as well?

Some beauty pageants, like the Miss America competition, have done away with the swimsuit portions of the competitions, thus dipping their toes in the 21st century. Other aspects of beauty pageants remain stuck in the 1950s, and we're not even talking about the whole "judging women mostly on their looks" thing. One beauty pageant winner was disqualified for being a mom, as if you can't be beautiful after you've had a kid. Now she's trying to get the Miss World competition to update their rules.

Veronika Didusenko won the Miss Ukraine pageant in 2018. After four days, she was disqualified because pageant officials found out she was a mom to 5-year-old son Alex, and had been married. Didusenko said she had been aware of Miss World's rule barring mother from competing, but was encouraged to compete anyways by pageant organizers.

One mystery in our universe is a step closer to being solved. NASA's Parker Solar Probe launched last year to help scientists understand the sun. Now, it has returned its first findings. Four papers were published in the journal Nature detailing the findings of Parker's first two flybys. It's one small step for a solar probe, one giant leap for mankind.



It is astounding that we've advanced to the point where we've managed to build a probe capable of flying within 15 million miles from the surface of the sun, but here we are. Parker can withstand temperatures of up to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit and travels at 430,000 miles per hour. It's the fastest human-made vehicle, and no other human-made object has been so close to the sun.

Since the mid '90s the phrase "God Forgives, Brothers Don't" has been part of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point's football team's lexicon.

Over the past few years, the team has taken the field flying a black skull-and-crossbones flag with an acronym for the phrase, "GFBD" on the skull's upper lip. Supporters of the team also use it on social media as #GFBD.
