Hey, have you heard the news? Everything is terrible and politics are stupid. How stupid? Well, this is a real thing that’s happening:
A quirk in Vermont elections law is letting this 14-year-old boy run for the Democratic nomination for governor in Tuesday's state primary. https://t.co/aScIyh2C6H

More from CNN:
Ethan Sonneborn is an eighth grader who loves basketball, fishing and writing.
He also wants to be governor of Vermont. Not when he grows up, but now.
And thanks to the fact that there are no state laws that require gubernatorial candidates to be a certain age, Ethan is officially the youngest candidate to run for that office in Vermont history.
His issue? Stricter gun control, legislation he says his home state needs.
Stricter gun control? Well, that’s good enough for David Hogg!
The young people will win, good luck kid.
You’re doing more than most. https://t.co/4oHJ1kYmZ4

Adult politicians are immature enough, thank you very much. The last thing we need is literal children running things.
Look I don't ask for much but please elect him https://t.co/GjAv6PT8kT
