The 2016 conventions are behind us and have now been thoroughly studied, analyzed, debated and mocked by pundits, talking heads and comedians alike. But there is one group that has not had much of a say, until now.

Upworthy asked children to react to the conventions by showing them clips and then asking them to draw what they had seen. The results are both funny and insightful.

Kids Draw 2016 RNC

Kids ranging in age from 5-14 drew their take on the 2016 Republican National Convention, with some representations straightforward, while others managed to work in some editorializing.

“He is too confident,” observes Lucyvee, age eight, in response to Trump declaring, “We’re gonna win so big.”

“Wait, what?” and “Does he know who he’s talking to?” 14-year-old Jude has members of the audience asking in response to Rudy Giuliani shouting about one America.

But it is eight-year-old Mabel who may have captured the overall sentiment of the 2016 RNC best when she drew a speaker with steam coming out of his nose as he yells, “It’s the end of the world so you have to fix everything!”

We know it is steam because not only is it helpfully labeled as such, but there is what appears to be a small woodland creature in the corner saying, “That guy who thinks the world is ending has steam coming out of his nose!” That he does.

Kids Draw 2016 DNC

Children ages 4-12 drew their interpretations of key moments from the 2016 Democratic National Convention as well, with topics including bullying, unity, Bill Clinton’s memory of meeting Hillary and the historic moment of nominating the first female candidate to a major party.

by Graham Gremore September 28, 2016

Prepare to be absolutely mesmerized. Because space is gay, ya’ll. The good folks over at Planting Peace, the same group who created the rainbow-colored Equality House directly across the street from the Westboro Baptist Church, attached a rainbow flag to a high-altitude balloon and sent it way, way up into the atmosphere.
