The Cutest Fifth Grader Ever!
I’ll admit it’s easy to be won over by a little kid’s cuteness, but it’s not just Damon’s chubby cheeks that cracked me up. His attitude seemed to be awe at the political theater surrounding him mixed with a sort of “I’ve seen this all before” world weariness. In addition to having fun with a reporter from one of the local networks (“Tim and I chilled out for a little bit, and he even helped me with my homework”) and describing the campaign music as “tight,” Damon hung in there while Joe Biden took his sweet time answering his question. (Hey Biden, don’t you think the kid’s arm was getting tired holding that microphone?)
The best part comes at the end when Damon refers to Biden as his homeboy. Wonder if Biden even knows what that means?
Quite frankly, Damon Weaver was more entertaining that John King and his interactive map, and if he’s lucky, this little fifth grader will turn out as cute as Anderson Cooper. -- Jennifer Mathieu
