Do you remember Jonathan Krohn?
He was the 13-year-old conservative pundit that got a bunch of media attention in 2009.
Yeah, while we were obsessed with pop music and decorating our lockers this kid was a becoming a major voice in one of the leading American political philosophies. He even wrote a book and gave a speech at CPAC , the video of which you can check out below – it's adorable.
But now, it seems that Jonathan isn't that conservative anymore.
In a recent interview, the former puny pundit, who is now 17 and just out of high school, told a reporter that his views have become more moderate ... and even somewhat liberal.
"I think I've changed a lot, and it's not because I've become a liberal from being a conservative," he says. "It's just that I thought about it more. The issues are so complex, you can't just go with some ideological mantra for each substantive issue."
So, where does Jonathan, who will be attending NYU in the fall, stand on the issues now? Here's a quick rundown:
- He's for gay marriage.
- He thinks Obamacare is "a good idea."
- Who's he voting for in November? "Probably Barack Obama."
Look, Jonathan, buddy, we don't want to burst your bubble or anything ... but college liberals at NYU? Those are a dime a dozen. College Republicans? Man, those are unique/practically endangered.
