You don’t say that about anybody, let alone about a guy who’s trying to run for president, and his beliefs to make the country a better place, and also the guy who’s trying to help him do it as well. You don’t say that about any female or anybody in general.This kid does not deserve to work. And Nickelodeon was promoting his tweets? How could they not be paying attention to things that he said, if they’re promoting his tweets to children who watch their network. It’s just downright disgusting.
