Donald Trump can’t catch a break.
Only this time, the comic was just 13 years-old.
Lori Mae Hernandez began writing jokes three years ago to cheer up her father, who was afflicted with Bells Palsy.
“My goal was to make him smile again,” she revealed in a prepaid interview.
The teen easily won over the crowd with her witty one liners about babysitting — and, of course, politics.
“My only qualification to be a babysitter is that I used to be a baby,” she laughed. “That’s like saying, ‘Weren’t you the host of reality show? Wanna be president of the United States?’”
The judges were impressed.
“I love everything you did,” Howie Mandel praised. “You made us smile. You made us laugh. You are an inspiration!”
Lori was swiftly passed through to the next round.
