On Sunday, NBC News has resorted to using children in videos to deliver statements criticizing to President Trump just one month into his presidency.
Opening with a young boy eager about an outsider coming to Washington to bring people together, the series, “Dear Mr. President: Letters from the American Children,” then begins throwing cheap shots by using kids.
One girl stated: “When you speak on things that make me feel uncomfortable, or I disagree with, you make me feel small because I know I can’t change it…”
Another boy sadly looked into the camera: “Most of my family is black. I’m afraid that you’re going to hurt some of us blacks…”
Other kids then spoke with no context about banning refugees and building a wall to keep out illegal immigrants:
Some of my friends are really scared about you building a wall, and the travel band [sic], because a lot of their families live in different places,” one girl says, while another older one complained, “Just because I’m Mexican doesn’t mean you can build a wall in my country…
There’s even a boy in one video who believed Trump is “attempting to whitewash America” while another girl pleaded with him “not to let people have guns.”
One boy chastised Trump’s refugee policy, calling it “unfair” while another told Trump not to hate countries “based on the actions of a single group or organization.”
One thing is for certain — the media are stooping even lower by using children to messengers of their agenda — messages of complaints, criticisms, even claims of racism in the Trump administration. It’s hard to believe so many kids are up to speed on current events let alone completely understand Trump’s policies.
