Eleven-Year-Old Journalist Jaden Jefferson Is Impressed by Marianne Williamson

Yesterday a young fellow from Toledo, Ohio, named Jaden Jefferson went viral after he interviewed Democratic presidential hopeful and verified non-Native American Elizabeth Warren:

Young Mr. Jefferson seems very poised and confident. Much more so than many adult journos, really.

If you didn’t find Warren very impressive in that interview, though, Jefferson seems to agree. Here he is talking to CNN’s Brooke Baldwin earlier today, and she asks him a question that she obviously assumed he’d answer differently:

“Who impresses you the most? You’ve been reading about all these candidates, just like we all have.”
“Well, Marianne Williamson, definitely–
“REALLY???”

Sheesh, Brooke, calm down. Not everybody lives in the same bubble as CNN. We Americans are out here learning about these candidates for ourselves and making our own decisions. As you might’ve noticed, we didn’t do what you wanted us to do in 2016. What makes you think we’re going to listen to you this time?

I’m on record as a big fan of Marianne, so this is welcome news. This kid gets it. Kudos to him for thinking for himself, and not just taking what’s spoon-fed to him by the hacks at CNN. The future just got a little bit brighter.
