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.

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

When you have a body like this, you should probably just go ahead and do everything sans clothing. McIntosh knows: “If you appreciate your body, why would you want to cover it up? You might as well show it off.” Agreed. “I live in an apartment with buildings facing onto it, so when I walk [...]
