We Had Kids Watch the Presidential Debate–Here’s What They Thought

We often forget politics isn't just for adults. The business of running the country affects everyone, including children.  With elections becoming more like circuses, we can easily forget how things might come across to the most impressionable of us.

That's why Ava Jean, the 7-year-old TV host, sat down with three of her friends and watched the first debate between Presidential Candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

Their first takeaway: both candidates have pretty hair.

Aside from the hair, these kids weren't that impressed. They all agreed debate is a bit boring. In fact, it didn't take long before most of the kids were dozing off.  It seems even a personality the size of Trump's wasn't enough to hold their attention.

At the end of it all, the kids were split between who they liked. One thing they did agree on: they won't be watching another debate for a long time.
