“I’m nervous! I’m nervous!"

When Donald Trump descended upon a classroom of first-graders at International Christian Academy in Las Vegas on Wednesday, reactions were a mixed bag.

As the Republican presidential nominee made his way into the room, some of the children offered greetings, but one resounding voice rang out above the rest.

I’m nervous! I’m nervous! I’m nervous!” a first-grader wise beyond their years repeated, as though a mouthpiece for Americans everywhere.

Another student said, “See? I told you his hair wasn’t orange.”

Keep up the honesty, kids. If you keep repeating that you’re nervous, he might just go away.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
