Stand-up comedy is, like, really hard. Just ask your roommate's friend who keeps ruthlessly inviting you to see him run through the same five minutes of monotony that's plagued your social calendar for years. However, for those with the gift, stand-up seems downright easy. For example, this 13-year-old America's Got Talent contestant pretty much owned the stage even before she delivered a rousing punchline at presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump's expense.
"My only qualification to be a babysitter is that I used to be a baby," Lori Mae Hernandez told the AGT audience, noting that she actually skipped a babysitting gig to make the performance. "That's crazy! That's like saying, 'Hey, you're sick a lot, you wanna be my doctor?'"
Then she hit everyone with the sick Trump burn: "Or 'Weren't you the host of a reality show? You want to be President of the United States?'"
The audience lost it, immediately launching into a well-earned standing ovation. Hernandez appeared on Tuesday's episode of the competitive talent show and was easily voted to the next round, revealing she got into stand-up three years ago when her father was diagnosed with Bell's palsy. The temporary facial paralysis made it hard for her father to smile, so Hernandez decided mastering the art of comedy would help her family cope.
And this isn't the first time a kid burned Trump. The Fine Brothers team asked a bunch of kids to react to some of Trump's most outwardly offensive statements back in March, resulting in at least one of them dubbing him a "loser."
