Political experts are saying that Hillary Clinton’s campaign is having trouble winning over younger millennial voters. Mainly because in polls, millennials keep choosing themselvs.

Hillary is trying to reach out to millennials now though with her new campaign slogan “Netflix and Hill”.

[Picture changes to Chris Christie and Barack Obama.]

At the GOP debate, Chris Christie criticized president Obama calling him a feckless weakling. Wow, someone got a dictionary for Christmas! I had to look that one up. Let’s see. Feckless, inept or irresponsible. Hah, well let’s see used in a sentence. It would be a feckless attempt at revenge to close three lanes of a bridge in New Jersey. Hah! Interesting. I think that was a good sentence.

[Picture chagnes to republican debate]

Throughout the republican debate, many viewers took notice of an off screen cough that repeatedly interrupted candidates’ answers. No one is exactly sure where the cough came from, but it’s now polling 3 points ahead of Rand Paul.
