Outraged mom urges son to vote in hilarious video

Many are stressing how important it is to vote in the presidential election on November 8 -- but this mom took it a step beyond.

Twitter user @xxxjayglo, named only as Kenny, told his mother that he doesn't plan on voting for major party candidates Trump or Clinton -- but for libertarian candidate Gary Johnson. She wasn't happy about it, and Kenny decided to film her reaction:

Kenny asked his mother what would happen if she did not vote for Hillary Clinton. "There's going to be a little problem in this house," she said. "I'll seize your phone, I'll seize the car." Kenny laughed over her threats.

His mother then reminded him that Gary Johnson did not know about Aleppo, where war is raging. Then, he suggests not voting at all -- and then she really goes off.

"You have to carry out the civic duties of being an American," she said. "Don't act like you're a moron."

To prove that he voted, his mother told him to take a photo of him in the voting booth. Depending on what state they live in, however, this would be illegal.
