A 4-year-old Fort Collins girl expressed her frustration
over the seemingly never-ending presidential campaign.
Elizabeth Evans posted this video yesterday to her YouTube account after her little girl heard "one too many mentions of the election," Evans describes on her YouTube page.
Evans told 9NEWS that she and her daughter were listening to NPR on a trip to the grocery
store Tuesday when Abigael starting tearing up.
The mother asked Abigael why she was crying and she responded, "I'm tired of Bronco Bamma and Mitt Romney."
"That's why you're crying?" Elizabeth asked, and Abigael nodded and started to cry and cough. "It'll be over soon, Abby," Evans says. "The election will be over soon, okay?"
Abigael then tried to get a hold of herself and responded to her mother with a tearful, "Okay." Elizabeth said on the way back from the store she switched the radio from NPR to Neil Young.
小姑娘努力克制住了自己的情绪，带着哭腔的回答母亲：“好吧...” 埃文斯后来表示在从商店返家的途中，她从国家公共广播频道调到了Neil Young 音乐节目。
NPR apologized on Wednesday to 4-year-old Abigael Evans, after learning that one of their reports on the 2012 election drove little Abigael to tears.
On behalf of NPR and all other news outlets
, NPR wrote in a blog post:
we apologize to Abigael and all the many others who probably feel like her. We must confess, the campaign's gone on long enough for us, too. Let's just keep telling ourselves: "Only a few more days, only a few more days, only a few more days."
