Kerry Washington and the children of America are done pulling punches in the year 2020.
Washington, who recently starred in Hulu's Little Fires Everywhere, an adaptation of the novel by Celeste Ng, was the guest host of Jimmy Kimmel Live! for a couple of days this week. As the thirteenth guest host this summer, she decided to shake up her segment a little by asking kids a series of questions about voting.
The kids were brutally honest, as only kids can be.

Washington asks the kids:
"Do you know who our current President is?"
One child replies:
"All I know is that he's going nuts."
"He's handling things out of control."
"He wants people to go to school, but people are getting sick."

If even the kids can tell something is not right in the country, maybe we need to do better as adults.
