If you're still struggling to find a presidential candidate worthy of your vote, we've got some good news. There's a new player in town by the name of Amalah Cross. She's honest. She's talented. She's brave. She's not boring. And she's 1.

Wait, what?

That's right. At the ripe old age of 1, Amalah is ready to make our country a better place—or, you know, more "toddlerable" again—by throwing her hat into the ring to be the next Pretisizzle. Which is basically just like a President, only so much better.

A quick glimpse at Amalah's first official campaign ad tells us right away that despite her young age, this is one candidate who already knows how to answer the tough questions. When posed with the following query "How will you convince the government to allow toddlers to vote?" for example, our girl shows no fear and simply quips: "Punching them down on the buns!"

YASSS QUEEN! This little spitfire has def got my vote!

She may not have her own father's, however. "None of her policies have anything to do with parents," he gripes, watching the ad play out on TV. "I'm not fallin' for none of that. I'm not voting for her."


Amalah's dad La Guardia is, of course, the mastermind behind the brilliant presidential parody video. He's also responsible for the hilarious "New Father Chronicles" on YouTube, where he details the many ways in which his daughter runs his life. This time, however, he's not quite ready to go down without a fight.

"Look, if there ain't anybody out there strong enough to defeat her, I'm gonna run against her myself," La Guardia adamantly tells his wife.

We'd like to see him try!
