8th Grader nails 2016 candidate impersonations in epic graduation speech

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL (WCMH) — President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and Bernie Sanders were all part of 8th grader’s Jack Aiello’s graduation speech.

But it wasn’t words of wisdom he was sharing, but words of wit.

Video of Aiello giving his graduation speech was posted to YouTube last week and has been racking up the views ever since.

As Donald Trump: “…and let me just tell you that Thomas has been a great school and quite frankly it’s been excellent.”

As President Obama: “We also did a unit entirely on dance. Dances like the Bavarian Shoe Plant. And we also did some Hawaiian dancing too. In fact I even remember how one of the Hawaiian songs goes.”

As Hillary Clinton: “And thanks to our teachers we have all the tools we need to succeeded in this next chapter of our lives and they all deserve a big round of applause.”

As Bernie Sanders: “Thank you for allowing me to speak to you here today. Let me start with the lunches. They are delicious.”

Aiello received a standing ovation for his speech, and maybe a future spot on “Saturday Night Live”.
