Relax, This 13-Year-Old Girl’s Trump Joke on America’s Got Talent Means Everything Is Going to Be All Right

Put that all out of your mind, because this week on America’s Got Talent, 13-year-old stand-up comedian Lori Mae Hernandez absolutely roasted Trump with a joke that brought the entire house down. To be honest, it wasn’t her best joke — the one about babysitting was funnier, though that just might have been the delivery — but at this point in the campaign season, we’ll take what we can get.
