Nothing against 12-year-olds, but can’t the Trump campaign find anyone with experience to run a campaign office?
Donald Trump’s campaign has some young blood among its leadership.
And by young, that means 12 years old.
In one of the most important counties in swing state Colorado, Donald Trump is relying on 12-year-old Weston Imer, who runs the Jefferson County operation for the Trump campaign.
Jefferson County is one of the most populous counties in Colorado and is part of the Denver metro area.
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.
Guess the office will shut down once school starts up. Hopefully the kid at least gets a dopey red hat for his efforts. Now that we think of it, maybe this kid is the one running Trump’s Twitter account.
