As the 2016 campaign finally draws to a close (eight days!), it's all just a matter of casting votes. On Saturday, young American Kenny Okwara tweeted a video of him telling his mom that he just might not bother voting, and his mom's reaction is the kick in the butt America needs.
JUST TOLD MY MOM IM NOT VOTING FOR HILLARY CLINTON AND THIS HAPPENED 😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/bUUkzgOA2E— kenny (@xxxjayglo) October 28, 2016
"If you didn't vote for Hillary Clinton...there's gonna be a little problem in this house," she says, "I’ll seize your phone, I’ll seize the car. No I am serious, okay?"
When Okwara implied he might vote third party, his mom turned up the heat, saying, "Do not vote for the stupid man who doesn't even know there's Aleppo, there's a Syrian civil war going on. You'll be just be as dumb as the man."
It then gets even better, worthy of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" playing in the background, as Okwara's mom says, "“No, there’s no ‘no vote’ option. You are so stupid! You have to carry out your civic duties of being American. Okay?”
Okwara told BuzzFeed, “I was going to vote. However, I wanted to see my mom’s reaction if I told her I wasn’t going to." And the reaction was definitely worth it.
Over 86,000 people have liked the video, inspired by her passion, including The Fonz.
Your mother is a great and intelligent American. You can't vote for HER, so have the presence of mind to LISTEN to her: https://t.co/qLYihhivfn— Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) October 30, 2016
