  • The Democratic Presidential Debate

  • took place in Atlanta, Georgia last week,

  • so obviously, we had to send our nine-year-old presidential

  • expert, Macey Hensley, to be our correspondent.

  • Take a look.

  • Hi, Ellen!

  • It's me, Macey, and I'm here in Atlanta, Georgia,

  • home of the next Democratic Debate and the Jimmy Carter

  • Library!

  • I can wait!

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • Hi.

  • Hi, Macey.

  • How are you?

  • I'm good.

  • I'm Dr. Meredith Evans.

  • Welcome.

  • Still handshaking?

  • President Carter grew up--

  • On a peanut farm.

  • On a peanut farm.

  • And when he was a little boy, he supposedly

  • shot his sister with a BB gun, and then she

  • threw a wrench at him.

  • So I want to become president, and I'm

  • going to go the Democratic Debate,

  • so do you think you can help me practice debating?

  • Yeah, sure, let's do that.

  • All right, so here you go.

  • This is for you.

  • And then here's mine.

  • And then I have--

  • here.

  • So our first debate topic is "country music

  • is the best type of music."

  • I believe that country music is the best type of music

  • because, I mean, it's something that you can dance to,

  • and it's just--

  • OK.

  • Just go ahead, and let's try this again.

  • Country music's the second best kind of music

  • because sometimes the songs are way too sad.

  • Oh, ho, ho, all right, now--

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • I do agree with you.

  • I mean, all country songs are basically

  • about either drinking, love, or heartbreak.

  • Somebody-- [LAUGHTER]

  • So Macey, here's a gift.

  • This is one of President Carter's early books,

  • and it's signed.

  • Wow.

  • Just for you.

  • Is that your first book signed by a president?

  • I have one from Bush.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • It can be my second one!

  • So nice to meet you.

  • Nice to meet you too.

  • I've heard so much about you.

  • Looks pretty cool.

  • Looks pretty cool, doesn't it?

  • Do you want to try standing up on one of those podiums?

  • Sure.

  • Want to see how it feels?

  • Macey Hensley, come on out to the stage.

  • [PRESIDENTIAL MUSIC PLAYING]

  • Woo!

  • [CLAPPING]

  • Here we go, Macey.

  • As President of the United States,

  • what would your platform be?

  • Well, definitely, my mom's a teacher.

  • Get teachers pay raised.

  • We need to help our farmers, and, of course,

  • make America kinder.

  • Macey Hensley, everyone.

  • Great job.

  • Hi, I'm Kamala Harris.

  • Hi, nice to meet you.

  • Nice to meet you.

  • So what do you do to prepare for the debate?

  • I eat lots of cookies.

  • Well, here would you like one?

  • Oh, yes, actually.

  • These are my favorite, chocolate chip.

  • Thank you.

  • Good.

  • I know a bunch of president facts.

  • And James Madison was the shortest president.

  • Oh!

  • So if you become president, you might

  • be the shortest president.

  • How tall was he?

  • And did he wear heels?

  • Is it true that you have four names?

  • That is true, yeah.

  • Now do you know the only other president to have four names?

  • Ooo-- no, no, wait!

  • George Herbert Walker Bush, right?

  • Yes!

  • Yes.

  • Yes!

  • All right.

  • So if you win, you'd be the youngest president.

  • So do you have any advice for me?

  • Well, you seem like you're way ahead of me,

  • definitely where I was at your age.

  • So maybe I should be asking you for advice.

  • You got anything I should think about?

  • Just follow your dreams.

  • How about that?

  • That's good advice.

  • All right.

  • Thank you very much.

  • Very nice meeting you.

  • Take care.

  • [GRUNTING]

  • Excuse me.

  • So who came up with your Yang Gang?

  • It was the Yang Gang itself.

  • And then it just caught on.

  • I just want to give him a hug, if I can?

  • Yeah!

  • Oh, he's being kind to me.

  • Aw!

  • What would be the first thing you

  • guys would do if you made moved into the White House?

  • Well, if I'm president, one of the things I'm going to do

  • is invite him over for dinner.

  • You're not married, are you?

  • I am not married.

  • All right, so do you think that you're

  • going to be a bachelor like James Buchanan, or are

  • you going to get married in the White House

  • like Grover Cleveland?

  • I think that's the sort of question to ask my girlfriend.

  • Oh my gosh, bring her on in.

  • Rosario.

  • Can I have a cookie?

  • Yes!

  • Yeah, sure.

  • The star power in this interview just went up.

  • So do you think he'll end up being a bachelor like James

  • Buchanan, or will he get married in the White House

  • like Grover Cleveland?

  • I think the question really needs to come from him.

  • Oh, I see, I see.

  • I'm a little old fashioned on that one.

  • Can you help me negotiate something here?

  • I feel like we're going to make major world news right now.

  • Yeah!

  • Thanks, Ellen, for sending me here.

  • I had so much fun here in Atlanta

  • during the Democratic debate.

  • Bye, thank you for sending Macey here.

  • She's awesome.

  • Future president, nice to meet you.

  • [APPLAUSE]

  • Thanks, Macey.

  • Thanks, Kristen Welker and MSNBC.

  • We'll be right back.
