Earlier this morning, this editor’s 11-year-old son came downstairs into her office and asked her why Obama had allowed so many atrocities to take place for illegal immigrants and their children along the border while he was still president. And then he wept for the conditions we’re all reading about at the Virginia detention center …
And of course none of this happened and actually this editor’s son came downstairs, demanded a Lunchable, and then farted very loudly in her office.
Because he’s a kid.
You’d think by now the Left would have figured out nobody is buying what they’re selling when it comes to ‘woke children.’
Today my 6 year old got home from summer camp and asked, unprompted, “Dad, does Donald trump hate kids?”
How do I even begin to answer this question?

Kids don’t think like this.
Charles C.W. Cooke explained how kids really think …
My two-year-old just wandered into my office and pointed at the Declaration of Independence on the wall. I thought it might be a good learning moment. "That's the Declaration of Independence," I said. "Yes," he replied. "And this is my truck." Then he walked out. Good chat.

Now. We’re not 100% sure if Charles meant this as a slam on the cartoonist but it’s just so perfect and seems almost too coincidental.
If not, his timing was still so amazing.
Your kid clearly isn't woke enough

I believe he was trying to tell you to keep your hands off his truck.

I know a lot of guys for whom a truck is a declaration of independence.

Repeat after me: "Children are blessings."

That they are.
I think you're missing a great chance to over interpret your son and assume he was making a profound socio/economic statement about auto manufacturing and tax incentives that drive or kill the industry.

Just not woke enough.
