In Jefferson County Colorado

there is an office
where a 12-year-old
named Weston Imer

is in charge of coordinating volunteers
and getting out the vote
for Donald Trump.

The officially listed coordinator
is his mother Laurel

who says
of her son's weighty duties
that only get weightier

every time Trump opens his mouth

"You have a responsibility
to your children to teach them."
