What were you up to when you were twelve? Homework? Wiffle ball? Bike-riding?
Well, that was back when we could goof off and rely on the grown-ups to run the country.
Have you seen the grown-ups lately??
Meet Weston Imer, 12, who is co-chairing the Trump campaign for the key Colorado county of Jefferson, part of the Denver metro. Swing state, very swing county.
“Imer is in charge of the operation where volunteers will gather and help get out the vote, and while sitting behind a desk may not be the coolest thing to do, he hopes to use the position to inspire others.
“Get involved,” Imer said. “That’s what I’m going to say. Get involved. Kids need to be educated.”
“Imer’s mother, Laurel Imer, is the official field coordinator on paper, but she wants to give her son most of the responsibility and help show other parents – Democrat or Republican – how to get their kids involved.
“You have a responsibility to your children to teach them,” Laurel Imer said.
“”School starts for Weston Imer in September, and he hopes to lead the field office until then, recruiting friends and making Trump – who he has met – proud.
“He might even one day launch a campaign of his own.
“Watch for me – 2040,” Imer said.”
I’m leaning toward him in ’40.
And Trump is either crazy…or crazy like a fox.
