    According to the Advise Show on youtube, there was a news story that broke out about a woman kicking her 8 year old son out of her house because he voted for Donald Trump to be president of the United States in a mock election at school.  He voted for him because he's seen him several times on TV, but his mother didn't think it was funny, so she kicked him out.  Here's the video link for more information, and to see the event for yourself.


    After watching the video, do you think what this mother did was justified?  Or do you think she was clearly in the wrong here?  Please discuss.

      Since the mother appears to have made the video as a joke I'd say maybe she simply needs to learn what humor is, and isn't.

        Unless this kid is a damn good child actor prodigy, I doubt it was a joke.  I think that's what she wants us to believe it was, but I ain't buying it.  And even if it is a joke, she needs to be ashamed of herself because that joke could've gotten her son hurt, as there's no telling what might've happened to him on the street. 

        Edit:  Also if the kid is a damn good actor, then she seriously needs to get that kid into movies asap.

          I looked at the video long and hard and had to decide the kid wasn't in on the joke. Maybe at first, but not as it drug on. I'm not going to label it child abuse but it definitely displayed some poor parenting skills.

    Kind of defeats the purpose of "free speech", doesn't it? He's eight years old, for goodness' sake; he doesn't know a thing about politics unless he's some kind of prodigy. She should be educating him instead of kicking him out of the house. Hopefully the whole thing was just a joke to get YouTube views.

      I hope so too.  Otherwise, this woman deserves to lose her kid to child services because what she did was inexcusable and disgusting on a lot of levels.  I don't give a damn how much you hate Donald Trump, there was no reason for this.  By doing this crap, all she's doing is abusing her son emotionally, while putting him in harm's way on the street, and making the rest of the people that didn't want Trump to win, like me, look bad by association because of this crap.

    She should be reported to child services for abuse not on physical but mental abuse. What a poor excuse for a mother

      She was stupid enough to post the video on Facebook along with her IP address.  I trust that she was reported to CS.

    That's hard to watch.  To me it seems like an attempt at shaming to teach a lesson, like parents who make their kids stand on the side of the road with a sign that says "I'm a bully".  But regardless of her intentions, she was being emotionally abusive and I feel so badly for that poor kid.  It's almost even worse if she was willing to put her kid through that for the sake of a joke. 

    I hope that CPS got involved and hopefully sent them both to get some counselling.

      Being disowned by the Mother is traumatic, and he did'nt attempt to change his opinion.

      In a clam and collective fashion, I could of changed his mind about Trump being smarter than him. Lol.
      Convince him that all top federal Politicians are fake and fairytales for adults, design to steal our money.

      Overall his Mother was mentally abusive and cruel.

    What could have been a perfect time to teach the child about the freedoms enjoyed turned into an abusive show of ignorance. I feel sorry for the child who will have little respect for his mother for her trying to force her own feelings on a child she was sent to train, not abuse.
