Amanda Flerd, a 12 year old middle school student from Richmond, Virginia, recently gave a current events speech to her class, informing them of the latest political tensions in America while offering lucid analysis on its current state of affairs.
The presentation was well-received by the class, who claimed they learned more in those two minutes than they had all year.
“OMG guys, this almost gave me GHERSBERMPS! So Trump totally trolled this FBI dude, Clowny, for trying to probe a Russian or something cuz YOLO. Lulz. And now America is all like ‘ERMAHGERD!’ about Trump but Trump is all like ‘Troll-lol-lol’ America cuz YOPO (you’re only president once). And THEN–get this–G Dubs and Laura were in town cuz, according to the media, this dude Spicer was trying to avoid everyone by hiding “behind the Bushes”.
A video of the presentation has, what the kids would say, gone viral, which means it has quickly spread all over the internets. It’s been viewed over 500,000 times on YouTube and shared thousands of times on Facebook.
Because of its extreme popularity on social networking sites, Flerd is now making the rounds on the talk show circuit – from Late Night to Ellen to Conan. Not only this, but CNN, Fox, and NBC have all reached out to Flerd in hopes of creating a nightly news anchor spot.
“We feel Amanda can be a valuable asset to our news organization,” a CNN representative said. “Ms. Flerd speaks the language of the next generation and has already shown she can connect with an age demographic that we have failed to reach.”
“All of this is in the beginning stages, of course,” said an NBC spokesperson, “but we’re thinking something along the lines of ‘A Word from Flerd’ or ‘ERMAHFLERD!’
According to Amanda, she is #Cray cray XOXO OMG <3!!
