    How does an eight-year-old even hit on “Well SOMEONE’S gotta be Hillary!”

    Answer, of course, is that he has a Mom who’s “#Proud” when he does. Over-politicize your daily life and your kids will hit on this as the best way to please mummy and daddy (if he’s even around at this point), or else be consigned to second-class status in their own house.

    So, yeah… it’s entirely parental pressure.
