Theresa Kerry attempts to remove Jack’s thumb from his mouth during a big photo op (credit: Stephen Crowley/NYT)
A message to Theresa Kerry from the babies and parents of America: let Jack be Jack!! Clearly, she knows nothing about children to think that Jack Edwards should have to learn photography ‘decorum’ at the ripe old age of 4. Let him suck his thumb, Theresa. Who cares that it spoils your nice adult photo op! C’mon Theresa, you raised children of your own lo these many years ago. You should know better. Or I should say, you had children of your own. Whether you raised them yourself I guess is in question. Probably, nannies raised your kids.
Seriously, Jack’s not running for President. He’s not even old enough to know how to pose for a properly decorous photograph. Let him be a kid, Theresa! There’s plenty of time for him to learn the niceties of proper adult behavior.
