Jeremy Corbyn Said He Has Youth On His Side And People Are Loving It

"I am so here for how smug Jeremy looks on Marr."

This morning Jeremy Corbyn appeared on BBC1's The Andrew Marr Show.

#Marr: "You're looking chipper." Corbyn: "It's a nice sunny morning."

And he told Marr that he's ready for another election after no party won enough seats to command an overall majority.

We can't go on with this "instability" & Labour is "ready to fight another election", Jeremy Corbyn says… https://t.co/S4gk8tXHI9

Corbyn just said that the Labour party is ready to fight if there's another general election this year #marr

When Marr asked Corbyn if he is in it for the long term, Corbyn replied: "Look at me, I've got youth on my side."

Marr: "Is Jeremy Corbyn in this for the long term?" Corbyn: "Look at me, I've got youth on my side."

People loved Corbyn's confidence.

Jeremy Cobyn cannot stop smiling on #marr He can't help himself. And showing quite a bit of sass too! #GE2017

And were big fans of the fact Corbyn, 68, had made a joke about a surge in support for Labour from young voters.

'I've got youth on my side.' Corbyn with the best line of the show. And doesn't he know it. #Marr

"Look at me. I've got youth on my side."- Jeremy Corbyn. Double entendre with irony - maximum points, a perfect 10. #CorbynWins #Marr

Jeremy Corbyn is the ABSOLUTE BOY. I actually love him. "Look at me, I've got youth on my side" YES YOU HAVE, YOU BADMAN

We don't actually know how many young people voted in the snap election, but it's thought higher-than-expected turnout was driven by young voters. Polling firm Ipsos Mori will publish estimates for turnout broken down by age groups next week.

But people are still here for smug Corbyn nonetheless.

omg I am so here for how smug Jeremy looks on Marr
