Earlier this week, gun hating Parkland, Florida student David Hogg — an ironic last name given how much he seems to “hog” the spotlight, garnering more attention than the victims of the shooting — decided to go after Fox News host Laura Ingraham for poking fun at his complaints about not getting into his preferred college.
He wrote a nasty tweet listing some of her main advertisers and demanded that they drop her show and unfortunately a few of them did.
Ingraham attempted to save her business by issuing an apology, which Hogg flatly rejected, stating that her attack was “mudslinging at children” referring to himself as just a poor, poor child in a big, scary world.
Fellow Parkland survivor — and supporter of the Second Amendment — Kyle Kashuv had a few things to say about that and delivered an unforgettably epic burn.
Twitchy has the details:
As Twitchy told you, David Hogg has decided not to accept Laura Ingraham’s apology. That’s his prerogative, of course, and it’s not a reason in and of itself to call him out. You know what is, though? Couching his rejection of her apology in mindless gobbledygook like this:
I 100% agree an apology in an effort just to save your advertisers is not enough. I will only accept your apology only if you denounce the way your network has treated my friends and I️ in this fight. It’s time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children. https://t.co/H0yWs4zMGk

Hogg’s been getting dragged — rightly so — for talking out of both sides of his mouth. Hard to take someone seriously who says “love thy neighbor” with the same voice he used to call the NRA “pathetic f*ckers that want to keep killing our children.” And speaking of children, Kyle Kashuv has another bone to pick with Hogg:
Are you a child or are you an adult that can dictate policy? Pick one. https://t.co/3SUnPKXUQf

Boom goes the dynamite!
As you can well imagine, the Internet had a whole lot to say on the exchange:

This is my thought exactly. You don’t get to be treated as an adult only when people like you.

Kashuv absolutely knocked it out of the park in his calling Hogg out for his behavior.
Hogg comes across as a typical political opportunist, which seems rare in a kid his age so it begs the question who is behind him puling all the strings?
Regardless, you can’t get in the big kid pool and get mad when everyone treats you like a big kid, claiming you’re just a little tyke. If that’s the case, go jump in the kiddie pool.
