They might be young (and ineligible to vote in 2016), but some of the discrimination we see in adults is already built into their minds.

Would Clinton watch his turn hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend?

“That I might do, actually. That I might do,” she said. “Because, you know, I think he watched me.”
