Illustration for article titled 5-Year-Old Asks: ‘Where Did Barack Obama Go?’

A little girl is having a hard time grasping two concepts: 1) why Barack Obama isn’t in the White House anymore and 2) why Hillary Clinton didn’t win the election.


Little Taylor had so many questions for her mother:


“Why do we have another president?” Taylor asked. “So, why did he go? Where did he go? So, why do we have the president we have now at the same spot [Obama] was, and why did he leave it anyway?”

Girl, we feel you. Two terms just wasn’t enough. Blame the Constitution.

Taylor may not understand why Obama isn’t in the White House anymore, but apparently Taylor, at the tender age of 5, is #WithHer.

“But how come Hillary did not get to be the president and why is she the loser? And what are they even supposed to be winning?” Taylor asked.


Yes, what are they supposed to be winning? Donald Trump won unlimited vacations.


Speaking of Trump, Taylor doesn’t want him in the White House, or in Texas, where she lives.

“But why does he have to live there?”

“Where do you want him to live?” her mother asked.

“I want him to live somewhere else,” Taylor said. “I don’t want him living in Texas!”


Taylor, we don’t want him anywhere, either.

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).
