This 12-Year-Old Egyptian Kid Totally Understands the Politics of Upheaval

Kids are the future, and this young boy from Egypt is already being hailed as the future president of the country. He drops an insane amount of knowledge about the politics of his country for anyone of any age, let alone a pre-teen.

This three-minute interview, from before Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi's ouster by the military, has sparked a huge discussion on Reddit over the weekend.

"If that kid is the future of Egypt I'm not even worried anymore," one user wrote.
 
Another wrote, "That kid just told me more about what's going on in Egypt than CNN or any other new outlet has, ever."
 
Pretty impressive.
