Cute Kid Crying Over The Election Is All Of Us

As the super crazy 2016 election season, super cute kids often prevail as voices of reason. Also, they’re cute! And we need that right now. Christopher, a little boy who is clearly a huge fan of President Obama, is a perfect example.

When Christopher’s mom tells him that the Obama’s presidency is almost finished and "it’s the rules - we have to pick a new president," he gives her a playful smile and says, "No, it’s not." But much to his dismay, Christopher discovers his mom is not joking.

"I don’t want to pick a new President," Christopher cries - and let’s be clear, there is a lot of pressure. (Sure, Christopher’s technically too young to be able to "pick," but that doesn’t mean the stakes aren’t high for him, and his future.)

He then goes into a full-on teary meltdown when his mom tells him that he has to choose between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. "No, I like Obama better!" he exclaims through his tears (presumably he feels the same about third-party candidates) and Twitter users definitely feel his pain:

Christopher isn’t even the first kid to struggle with the idea of a new President - 2016 has seen viral videos of 4 year-old Abella and first-grader Kameria also getting emotional at the thought of such #Change.

Election Day is Nov. 8. If you haven’t registered to vote yet, you can do so here.
