Oh, look. Wesley Crusher is in the news again.
Speaking at a gun control rally in New Jersey Sunday, Wesley announced “I’m not going back to school on Wednesday until one bill is passed.”
When reader Roxanne sent me the link to the Breitbart story yesterday, I laughed so hard I scared the dog.
What a sacrifice Wesley is making.
We all know that he wants nothing more than to get back to school and be done with these annoying, inconvenient television appearances.
But he’s willing to make that sacrifice all in the name of gun control.
The thing about children is they’re terrible liars.
I know because I was a child once. And I was a terrible liar.
And trust me when I tell you that Wesley Crusher is lying.
Of course, you can’t expect little Wesley to stand in front of a bank of cameras and say, “Listen, my booking agent has me scheduled on programs every day for the next three weeks. I just don’t have time to go to school.”
But if I had to guess, I’d say that’s the real reason he isn’t getting back to his ordinary, anonymous life.
And rather than admit the truth, he’s pretending his skipping school is some sort of political statement.
But here’s the thing. This is hardly a sacrifice on his part.
After all, what teenager wouldn’t love to have an excuse not to go to school? Especially if skipping school includes daily national television exposure.
But that’s fine. Let him continue being a daily guest on CNN. It will only hasten his overexposure.
Though, in all fairness, the journey to his overexposure can’t go any faster since it’s already traveling at warp speed.
