Parkland survivor-turned-celebrity gun activist David Hogg came unhinged on Wednesday morning when he was confronted with facts that showed most millennials don’t agree with his radical anti-gun agenda.
Since last month’s shooting, Hogg has been making numerous appearances on mainstream media shows demanding gun control. He’s used to these mainstream media outlets blatantly kissing up to him, which is why it came as a huge shock to him when MSNBC host Joe Scarborough brought up a poll that did not support what Hogg has been arguing for weeks.
“It is interesting, though, we had John Della Volpe from Harvard Institute of Politics talking about polling numbers that I’ve seen before that are fascinating, that Millennial voters, while more progressive on just about every other issue, actually are more conservative when it comes to guns,” Scarborough said on Wednesday morning, according to Independent Journal Review. “What message do you have, instead of just to elected leaders, what message do you have to your own generation and other millennials who are more conservative than most would expect on this issue?”
Making it clear that he had no idea how to respond to this, Hogg gave a truly ridiculous answer.
“One thing I think is important to remember about those polls is conservative students and conservative people in the Millennial generation are typically a lot more politically active, so the polls may be biased in that way because many students that have more liberal views may just not partake in them,” Hogg said. “So there may be a skew in the polls that way.”
In other words, young conservatives actually know what’s going on in the world and actively want to participate in politics, while liberal teens are typically kids just being pressured into supporting the left by their peers and the media. That actually sounds about right to us!
This comes after Hogg boasted that he hung up on Donald Trump’s White House when they tried to invite him to a listening session with the president.
“I actually hung up on the White House the other day,” Hogg said. “They actually called me the day before the listening session and asked if we were going to come, and I said I’m not coming because we expect President Trump to come to the CNN town hall, and I ended on this message with them, I said–we don’t need to listen to President Trump. President Trump needs to listen to the screams of the children and the screams of this nation.”
