Middle Schooler Hit the Nail on the Head With His Presidential Impersonations During Graduation Speech
Entertainment| | By Margo Gothelf
“I’ve decided that since we’re in the middle of an election year, that I would do my graduation speech in the style of some of the 2016 presidential candidates,” Aiello said at the beginning of his speech.
Trump was Aiello’s first victim where he got yuuuge laughs.
“We’re learning languages from Spain, from France, from Germany and China,” he said. “You know, people say I don’t like China — I love China. I mean, I love China. I mean, I have so many terrific friends in China. But I took Spanish and let me just tell you, by the way, that it was fantastic. Muy fantastico.”
His Trump impression was followed by impressions of Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, and Bernie Sanders.
The eighth grade student also managed to sneak an Obama impersonation in.
“One of the greatest memories is in gym class and PE,” Aiello said. “On rainy days we’d go in to the small gym and do yoga. I’m proud to say I’ve completely mastered the downward dog.”
The whole graduating class from Thomas Middle School submitted speeches before Aiello was chosen as the winner.
