Barack Hussein Obama’s camp has already refused to allow babies, toddlers or old ladies with umbrellas to attend his inauguration ceremonies in D.C. on Jan. 20.
Damon Weaver, 10, a reporter for KEC TV news in Palm Beach, Florida was disappointed to learn his media credential application was denied.
With about $8,000 in donations, Damon, his K.E. Cunningham/Canal Point Elementary School teacher Brian Zimmerman, a student cameraman and two parents will travel to D.C. Jan. 18 to prepare for a KEC-TV special inauguration broadcast.
Zimmerman said Democratic Congressman Alcee Hastings of Miramar has agreed to give Damon three of the 197 tickets he was allotted, which will put the group in front of the Capitol for the ceremony. (LINK)
But the fifth grader will not be allowed to cover the inauguration up close and personal.
And, before you say, “everybody can’t get a credential” — this kid is not just anybody.
He became a national sensation and a YouTube favorite after landing a coveted interview with Obama’s sidekick Sen. Joe Biden during the presidential campaign.
At the end of the interview, Weaver quipped: “Senator Biden is now my homeboy.”
