Little Republicans Re-Enact First GOP Debate

The kid playing Rand Paul is a scream!

I laughed so hard at this I woke everyone in the house up but it is sooo worth it.

My favorite is the kid doing the Rand Paul impression, but the Jeb! kid is pretty good too, and the kid playing Scott Walker is just derpy enough to pull it off.


If you missed the first Republican debate of 2016, don’t worry – there’s an abbreviated version for you starring kids.

Taking a page out of Jimmy Kimmel’s book, the humor website Funny or Die released this video earlier this week with 10 kids starring as the Republican candidates from this month’s debate. Dressed in suits and wigs and repeating the candidates’ lines verbatim, the video highlights some of the biggest moments from the explosive debate, including Donald Trump’s hand raising and Chris Christie and Rand Paul’s showdown over privacy.

P.S. Look out for the hysterical, dead-on impressions of the kids playing Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul.
