Conversations heard at preschool!

Trump or Duck

A conversation heard between 2 of our preschoolers the other day:

Preschooler 1: “Which do you pick, Donald Trump or Donald Duck?”

Preschooler 2: “Ah, I don’t know, is Donald Trump a good guy?”

Preschooler 1: “Well kind of. Some say he is going to catch us all on fire and put us into war!”

Preschooler 2: “I think Donald Duck.”
