    8th grader's hilarious 'Presidential' graduation speech

    Suburban 8th-Grader Impersonates Presidential Candidates in Entertaining Graduation Speech

    Aiello has been doing impressions since he was a child, his parents say


    Whoever wins this year’s presidential election might want to call this Chicago-area eighth-grader up as a speech writer.

    Jack Aiello is a young teen with big dreams ahead of him — and potentially a slot on "Saturday Night Live" or in the White House.

    The Arlington Heights middle schooler has quickly garnered Internet praise for his hilarious graduation speech, which included impersonations of the 2016 presidential candidates...

    Thanks for posting this Bette......I had heard snippets of his speech on cable - so glad to view the whole thing. This kid is fabulous.....we'll be seeing more of him in the future I bet! Very talented and impressive. (Loved the Trump, Clinton & Bernie impressions most of all.....spot on!)

    ^ I, too, heard/saw clips of the speech yesterday on various media reports. Was hoping to see the entire speech. Too funny!!!

    I'm guessing that English teachers knew that the student did impressions, but I wonder if the essay seemed as humorous when read?

    ...Aiello’s entire roughly 350-student graduating class was tasked with writing a graduation speech as part of an English assignment. The speeches were then evaluated by teachers and staff before three finalists were selected...

    Jack appeared on the Jimmy Fallon show the other night. He was in a skit with Jimmy doing his Donald Trump impression and Jack was a mini me Donald Trump. It was pretty good.
