Regardless of which party he represented, I think it would be cool with it if it were like an internship and he was assisting someone with more experience but….yeah….

Funny that the OP is so shocked.

We've had posters brag about voting straight ticket for anyone with a political affiliation that matched 'their team' and claim they would never vote for the other side (some even openly admitting they think the person they voted for is corrupt). Do you really think those people do any research? C'mon pal.

Typical anti-youth comment
But the same people have no problem electing a president with 0 political experience

I didn't vote for Trump in either of his election's.

Trump vs Hillary = I did not vote for either candidate as I disliked them both.
Trump vs Biden = I voted for Biden as I saw him as the more moderate candidate (at first - if I could go back and change my vote at this point though, I probably would)

And I'm sorry, but age does matter. Someone at that age may be book smart but having worldly experience is way more important.

I’ll just put it in few words
Being old doesn’t always mean “being smarter”
And vice versa

Overall I agree in terms of knowledge, but theoretical education does not replace real world experience. Someone who has been doing the job for 10+ years is always going to have a superior edge over someone coming in with book smarts and no experience. If 'smarts' were everything then we would have alot more people coming right out of college into their field of specialization making six figure incomes, instead it typically takes years to build up to that level.

We've told 18 and 19yos to march off into war since the Revolution and history shows they, on the whole, performed exceptionally. I say give the young man a chance.

Smart and driven people tend to exceed expectations when faced with great challenge.

In 2016 there was one candidate running for president with tons of experience and the other with zero. Did we feel bad for the one with tons of experience losing to that unqualified person?

2008 the one with little experience won over the one with a lot more experience.

1992 a sitting president who has 8 years of VP experience before that lost to someone who had zero national experience, did we feel sorry then?

Experience gets whooped by youth and a new message all the time. Like the others have said, give the kid a chance.

These races should not be political anyway. If experience is so valued, why are the positions elected?
