Year 2, Day 26: Baby’s First Political Rally!

Firmly believing that it’s never too early to get involved in national politics, today we took Miles down to Rock Hill for the first of what is likely to be many stump speeches leading up to the 2020 presidential election. This one was for former Newark mayor and current senator from New Jersey (and Rosario Dawson boyfriend), Cory Booker.

Miles was an exemplary infant audience member, clapping and calling out at appropriate moments while providing plenty of attention to the speaker (and, yes, frequently pointing at the lights hanging from the gymnasium ceiling above).

Miles was happy to learn that Booker is pro-bouncy ball.

And while Miles won’t be able to vote for another 17 years (assuming nothing changes, anyway), Sen. Booker was still very eager to meet him (even if Miles was, at this point, strongly considering “gymnasium lights” as a write-in).
