From TPM Reader JN

I felt the need to share this because it completely moved me. We are very careful to not talk politics with our kids, not the least because the parents in our home school group are very conservative. But they’re old enough – 10 and almost 9 – that they are going to be aware. When my son woke up this morning he said he was worried about the election. My wife asked why and he said he really wanted to see the first woman president. He also said that Donald Trump doesn’t like foreigners and wants to build a wall and that’s bad because his sister is Chinese (she’s adopted). Hearing this made me cry – so proud of him and will be so disappointed in this nation if it breaks his heart. This isn’t BS – he came up with this on his own and unsolicited. Love him.
