Juvenile Detention

I don’t care a whole lot for Joe Scarborough and his snarky sanctimony, and Mika Brzezinski is the dictionary definition of a concern troll, but for Donald Trump to go after both of them with some kind of innuendo about their personal lives and each other is what you’d expect from a middle-school taunt-fest, not from someone vying for the presidency.

Maybe this will explain that.

One Colorado 12-year-old is spending his summer vacation helping Donald Trump get elected by running the campaign’s field office in one of the state’s most populous counties.

The Trump campaign’s field office in Jefferson County, which includes the greater Denver area, is largely run by Weston Imer, 12. While his mother, Laurel Imer, is listed as the office’s official field coordinator, she told KDVR that allowing her son to organize volunteers as co-chair of the county office has been a great learning experience.

“You have a responsibility to your children to teach them,” she told the station.

Imer said that last year he was bullied at school, but now he’s planning on a future White House run of his own.

“Watch for me – 2040,” he told KDVR. “Barron Trump, if you’re watching, in 2040 I’ll take you as my running mate.”

Wouldn’t this qualify as a form of child abuse?
