Politics is a confusing subject for kids, particularly when they're at a young enough age where fantasy and reality can overlap and still make sense to them. Alyssa Milano's son is six, so he's still young enough to believe in things that most adults have let go of — like unicorns.
The fact that the little guy hasn't seen any unicorns doesn't matter. Kid brains are great at picking up buzzwords and general concepts, and then inventing entire stories out of the bits and pieces they collect. It's the reason I was convinced that the moon followed me, personally, until I was almost ten years old. I mean, I was a princess and the moon was just always there when I looked into the sky, so clearly it was in love with me and followed me everywhere. Kid logic is the best.
So what is Milano's son's pieced-together theory about why he doesn't see any unicorns?
He thinks Donald Trump has banned unicorns and deported them all to North Korea.
Milano talked about it with Seth Meyers, who admitted it makes as much sense as everything else right now.
Seth told Alyssa, "Every part of that makes sense in a way that things didn’t make sense two years ago."
And YouTube kind of agrees.
Twitter is pretty into this theory, too.

If there were unicorns, Don Jr. and Eric would shoot them snd Ivanka would make jewelry from the horns.— VAN 🍀 (@ValNixon) August 9, 2018
