CHICAGO, IL - Talk about a class clown!

"What we need is a cinnamon roll revolution!" Chicago-area 8th grader Jack Aiello joked with his classmates, in a 'Bernie Sanders' sort of way.

Aiello is taking the viral video world by storm with his impressions of the 2016 presidential candidates-- and President Obama.

"Some of the greatest memories we had were gym class and PE," Aiello said, using a spot-on Obama tone.

The middle-school student beat out fellow classmates to get to speak at his class graduation, and he wasted no time finding political candidates to poke fun at!

...Like Hillary Clinton. "Thank you, President Obama!" Aiello told the assembled crowd, as the presumptive Democratic nominee.

In true Hillary form, Aiello thanked all the teachers. "They've given us the skills we need to get through sixth grade, and through seventh grade, and through eighth grade and now we're going to take those skills and apply them to high school!"

There was even a Ted Cruz sighting!

"God bless the great school of Thomas!" Aiello brought down the house, as the senator from Texas.

And of course, Aiello channeled his inner Donald Trump.

"I love China..I mean, I love China," Aiello declared as Trump. "I mean, I have so many terrific friends in China!"

But the kid really nailed his impersonation of Bernie Sanders!

"Thank you for allowing me to speak to you today," Aiello announced to the crowd as Sanders, bringing in cheers and laughs galore.

So, move over politicians.

....This kid takes the impersonation race in a landslide!
