The 2016 GOP race might be a circus, but the ones being harmed are the American people. Conversely, the actual circus uses and exploits elephants, forcing them to live in confined spaces and beating them for each show. Sure–we all have fond childhood memories of the Ringling Brothers Circus, but lurking behind all that showbiz glitz is a really nasty and ugly problem of animal abuse.
But Joseph Moreno, one extremely articulate and thoughtful 10-year-old boy, was so very disturbed by the cruel treatment of circus elephants that he recently protested Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey’s Circus at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. While most 10-year-olds are playing Candy Crush on iPads and iPhones in order for mommy and daddy to actually enjoy themselves, young Joseph was doing something way more meaningful and beneficial to humanity. In fact, this little kid is way more articulate and intelligent than our entire Congress.
Watch Joseph’s very impassioned and eloquent protest below:
