Little Boy Who Cried Over Not Being Gov. Of New Jersey Is Named Governor For A Day

Remember Jesse, the three-year-old (now five-year-old) boy who was deemed “too small” to live out his dream of being governor of New Jersey?

Of course you do; you’ve thought of nothing else. Well, the squeaky wheel, as they say, gets the most oil: Governor Chris Christie has named the little boy governor for a day.

See, he knows firsthand how tough it is to follow your dreams in the face of criticism:

Jesse’s breakdown previously earned his family $10,000 from America’s Funniest Home Video, and, now, Governor Christie is set to sign a proclamation that will name Jesse honorary governor of the Garden State for a day. Another perk? Jesse and his family will get to enjoy a tour of the governor’s office.

Jesse, however, has since decided he’d rather become a rock star instead. Sleep with one eye open, Jon Bon Jovi.

Here’s the original video. Poor Jesse. He’s already in college:
