Sick of the elections yet? So is four-year-old Abigael Evans from
Colorado. Her mother, Elizabeth Evans, 27, posted a Youtube video of her
daughter saying that she is tired of "Bronco Bamma and Mitt Romney."
The 22-second YouTube clip, published yesterday, shows the little girl
with a frown on her face and tears rolling down her cheeks, telling her
mother she is tired of this election.
Elizabeth Evans told ABC News that her daughter got emotional listening
to NPR. "I just picked her up from daycare so she was grumpy after a
long day and we were driving to the grocery store listening to NPR,"
Evans said. "And I wasn't really listening and when I was getting her
out of the car, she started saying that she was tired of Bronco Bamma
and Mitt Romney."
"That's why you're crying?" the girl's mother asks.
After she replies with an affirmative shake of her head, Abby's mother says, "The election will be over soon, O.K?"
"O.K.," replies the disheartened little girl.
Abigael's mother says that she is a "very precocious young girl."
"We don't watch TV or anything in our house, so even just listening to
radio and hearing people talk about politics was all she could handle."
For a four-year-old who isn't exposed to politics at home, the young YouTube star seems to know a lot.
"She talks about Mitt Romney and Barack Obama all the time," Evans
continues to tell ABC. "She always says that Obama is the president and
that Mitt Romney is a bad guy who just wants money and wants to be the
president... She is very precocious."
After the release of the YouTube clip, NPR apologized to the sobbing toddler in a written press release.
"On behalf of NPR and all other news outlets, we apologize to Abigael
and all the many others who probably feel like her. We must confess, the
campaign's gone on long enough for us, too. Let's just keep telling
ourselves: 'Only a few more days, only a few more days, only a few more
The video has flooded with comments of people who seem to agree with Abigael.
"Exactly how I feel. So much hatred and negativity permeating the air,"
someone commented. "I just want it to be over...it's like someone asking
you, 'Would you prefer to be stabbed or shot?'"
