Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) is believed by many to be a top contender for a 2020 run at the presidency. She used to be California’s attorney general, and more importantly to many voters, is considered telegenic.

Mike Opelka is not so sure it’s very presidential to be ignorant of the voting age, which is 18 thanks to the 26th amendment to the United States Constitution. He shared a tweet the senator posted Thursday night that said:

“Children are our nation’s future. We must listen to them about what they care about and give them a voice in our government.”

Mike joked on “Pure Opelka” that maybe America should have “a junior senator from every state,” perhaps around 15 years old. He theorized that Democrats might do very well with child voters, considering how often they offer “free” things in an effort to win Americans' hearts.

“We let [children] pick a gender on their fifth birthday,” Mike quipped. Why not vote at ten?
