Playing 13-Year-Old Stand-Up Comedian Hilariously Slams Donald Trump on 'America's Got Talent'

Whether America has talent is TBD, but the tweens on America's Got Talent are killing it!

There was "the next Taylor Swift," the 12-year-old singer who got a standing ovation and was dubbed "a walking miracle" by the judges. Now, 13-year-old Lori Mae Hernandez has been likened to Tina Fey after delivering a hilarious stand-up set that culminated with a sick Donald Trump diss.

"My only qualification to be a babysitter is that I used to be a baby," Lori joked during her set. "That's crazy. That's like saying, 'Hey, you're sick a lot. You wanna be my doctor?' Or, 'Weren't you the host of a reality show? You want to be president of the United States?'"

Hey Trump, ya got BURNT.

Lori also received a standing O from judges Howie Mandel and Heidi Klum and yeses across the board. Simon Cowell had high praise for the teen, gushing, "There's something about you. You're really, really funny. Naughty Little Miss Innocent there...You can be maybe the next Tina Fey or someone."

While Lori's jokes left us in stitches, the story behind her stand-up career is truly touching.

"My dad, he got Bell's palsy and it started to become hard for my dad to smile," she explained during the reality competition. "I used to be extremely shy. My biggest fear was talking. A lot of people didn't even know the sound of my voice, honestly. I always looked up to my dad. He knows how to make everyone feel comfortable and everyone laugh."

"Half of your face just stops working," she said of the condition. "I was terrified. But my goal was to make him smile. I started writing jokes for him. He just sat there and listened to them, every day for a year. Then one time I told him a joke and he smiled. It was like I had my dad back again."
