  • This is exciting.

  • You're here on a big day.

  • First of all, it's a wonderful show, and also I've got new doors.

  • Look at that!

  • Aren't they great?

  • Yeah, Sears is going out of business, so I got them.

  • They were on sale.

  • Because I like to change things up.

  • So now I can put anything on there that I want.

  • I can have fireworks behind me if I want fireworks like that.

  • Yeah, I could have Dory on there if I wanted Dory.

  • I can make it look like I'm on People's Court if I wanted to.

  • I have to be taller.

  • I didn't see that it wouldn't be in context.

  • I would just...

  • I don't really look like I'm on People's Court.

  • Anyway, I like to change things up in the way that we do things.

  • Like for instance, midterm elections are next week.

  • And I want to talk about it in a fun way, you know, because that's the way we should talk about things.

  • So I brought some kids here, and I'm going to talk to them about politics and voting.

  • So let's open up my brand new doors.

  • Bring out the kids.

  • Hey, guys!

  • Hey, Ellen.

  • Hello, everybody.

  • How are y'all doing?

  • Good.

  • Great!

  • Was that fun?

  • You were on a little ride, coming......oh, do you have a question?

  • Yeah.

  • What is it?

  • Like most of the time when I see you, I watch your shows and stuff and like...

  • Right.

  • And now...and now you're on.

  • You're here.

  • Yep.

  • Isn't that great?

  • Yep.

  • So we're going to talk about politics.

  • Kids love to talk about politics.

  • Have you all been discussing politics lately?

  • Yeah.

  • No.

  • No?

  • In school.

  • I have.

  • You have?

  • I have in school.

  • You've been discussing politics?

  • Yeah, and we've been discussing about the president and the government and how...

  • Wait, me too.

  • The new President Donald Trump is kind of, sort of...

  • Weird.

  • And we were explaining that you should let everybody, every type of race be free.

  • Yes, everybody should be free.

  • Yes.

  • That's right, Jason.

  • Ok, so have you seen political ads on TV?

  • Let's start with you down here.

  • Brice and Avery, you're twins, right?

  • Yeah.

  • Ok, all right, so have you seen political ads on TV?

  • Either of you?

  • No.

  • Do you watch TV?

  • Yes!

  • Yeah, what do you watch?

  • We like Lion Guard.

  • And cartoons and movies.

  • We like Lion Guard the most.

  • Stop!

  • All right, it's like politics already.

  • All right, Ashley, have you seen political ads on TV?

  • Yeah, there was this one guy.

  • He was talking about Donald Trump.

  • Uh-huh.

  • He was just saying like how he could have changed stuff.

  • Yeah, you know, there's mid-term elections next week.

  • Do you know about voting?

  • Remember the show you did with Aaron Gordon?

  • Yeah.

  • You had like a little basketball court thing.

  • Kids, kids, you're both pretty.

  • Stop it.

  • I was going to be in like a free form, but I'm going to try to guide this.

  • I think that's a better idea.

  • So here's what I'm going...

  • I'll try to explain the voting to you.

  • So let's say we're voting on ice cream.

  • Who here... raise your hand if you like chocolate ice cream.

  • All right, who likes vanilla ice cream?

  • No.

  • Ok, Zane, here's $10.

  • What?

  • All right...

  • No fair.

  • Come on!

  • Oh, come on.

  • Zane, will you now vote for vanilla?

  • I would.

  • Will I still keep the $10?

  • No.

  • You better make a decision.

  • All right, so we'll vote again.

  • Who wants chocolate ice cream?

  • Not anymore.

  • Zane?

  • Zane, you got to vote for vanilla or you don't get that.

  • Do you really don't want to money?

  • Yeah, give me that back.

  • You don't know anything about...

  • Oh, come on.

  • You just wasted your chance.

  • Ashley, yeah.

  • I wish we could use chocolate chip, too.

  • It's called lobbying, and that's what just happened right there.

  • So she's changed to...

  • This was such a good idea in the room.

  • I love vanilla.

  • I love vanilla, too.

  • All right, ok, let's move on to something else I want to talk about.

  • Wait, I'm keeping it?

  • All right, so in Virginia, they might make it illegal for kids over 12 to trick or treat.

  • What?

  • Yes.

  • That is so unfair.

  • I need free candy.

  • Yes, so you would go out there and you would vote no.

  • You can't change the law, so that kids over 12 can't trick or treat, right, because you care about that?

  • People need free candy.

  • And you could get it for free.

  • Now you understand what we're all feeling.

  • That's how we feel.

  • Avery, don't hit your brother in the head.

  • We're not trying to do math.

  • That's a lie!

  • Listen, this has been a joy.

  • It's confirmed my decision in life.

This is exciting.
