This happened in August but is worth re-examining after the recent anti-Trump onslaught from the mainstream media. An 11 year old Trump supporter appeared on CNN with his mom and proved that even a child can understand Trump’s appeal in this election better than most journalists.
Here’s a partial transcript of the interview via CNN:
The 11-year-old who made national headlines this week for questioning Mike Pence about Donald Trump’s rhetoric said on Friday that he “wasn’t trying to be hostile” and emphasized his support for the Republican presidential nominee.
“I really think that listening to a few bad words coming out of Donald Trump is a lot better than people getting blown up by terrorists, people getting burned alive, people getting their heads chopped off, and people getting drowned,” Matthew Schricker said in an interview on “New Day” on CNN.
The precocious young Trump supporter was also asked by “New Day” co-host Poppy Harlow if he had any interest in a political career for himself. Schricker said he was primarily interested in becoming a lawyer, but conceded that a future in politics was a “slim possibility” despite being put off by “all the insulting flying around in politics.”
Asked what he would do if he were president, Schricker carefully responded, “I don’t know what the issues will be in the future.”

Can we have him moderate the next debate?
He’d certainly do a better job than Lester Holt.
