David Hogg is just now finding out his fifteen minutes of fame are already used up. He just got too full of himself and thought he was a force to be reckoned with instead of the liberal tool, he actually was.
Recently, Mr. Hogg decided that Nancy Pelosi and Bernie Sanders, among many others, were just plain too old. I don’t believe they are too old. Just too corrupt. Now, the left is accusing him of ageism. It was one thing when he went after guns and law-abiding citizens, but another thing when he went after the liberal elite. He crossed a line there is no coming back from. He’s lost the major source of his influence.
In addition to the label of “sexist,” The Daily Wire reports that some of Hogg’s followers have described his comments as “arrogant.”
On August 21, Hogg tried to calm the backlash by tweeting:
I said “Pelosi is old.” Trump is old. Hatch is old. Ted Cruz and Beto O’Rourke are both in the younger side of American leadership. We can go younger. Dems need to allow young people to seize leadership opportunities like the republicans have with people like Rubio, Ryan etc.
But Twitter follower Janet Johnson responded, “Sorry David…. I’ll take a 975 year old Pelosi over 18 year old Ryan and Rubio. You’re doing great work but ageism isn’t ok. Nancy Pelosi has fought and accomplished more than Ryan and Rubio… combined. We should honor her, not denigrate her. This is very disappointing.”
Poor David Hogg. It’s funny to me how people forget the old “15 minutes of fame” and it’s an actual thing. Perhaps Hogg’s time in the spotlight is finally up? Don’t get me wrong, what happened at his school is tragic but this boy has been riding that wave for one reason… $
