Lori Mae Hernandez received a standing ovation for her performance on Tuesday night's episode of the hit talent show.

She told the judges that she was inspired to take up comedy when she was just 10-years-old after her father was diagnosed by Bell's palsy, which she said made it hard for him to smile.

She may not be old enough to vote but that doesn't mean that Hernandez isn't on top of presidential politics.

The budding comic made the Trump the punch line of one of her jokes, expertly fitting it in to a story about job suitability.

“Have you ever seen Disney channel,” Hernandez asked. “Well I was gonna babysit two little girls who really like Disney channel.

She explained how she thinks it's ridiculous for parents to trust their children with someone her age, by telling the audience: “My only qualification to be a babysitter is that I used to be a baby.

“That’s crazy, that’s like saying, ‘Hey, you’re sick a lot, you want to be my doctor?’

“Or, ‘Weren’t you the host of a reality show? You want to be President of the United States?'”

The audience and the judges roared with laughter, prompting many to give the teenager a standing ovation.
