Stoneman Douglas high school student/activist David Hogg appeared on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” to stress that the gun control agenda he’s been pushing is not about politics.
He then bragged that he hung up on the White House… before his classmate dropped an “F-bomb” on national television, directed at “all generations before us.”
Hogg and fellow student Cameron Kasky, who have become media favorites, were on to publicize the upcoming gun control march in Washington, D.C. When host Bill Maher took the opportunity to point out that one of their classmates who spoke with President Trump said that she had “never been so unimpressed,” Hogg jumped in to one-up the observation.
“I actually hung up on the White House the other day,” Hogg boasted, explaining that they had called him the day before Trump’s listening session to invite him to attend.
The student noted that he declined the invitation, in part because the president did not attend an earlier scheduled CNN town hall. Hogg added that the alleged call from the White House was “very offensive considering the fact that there were funerals the next day, there was mourning we still had to do.”
“I ended on this message with them,” he concluded. “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.’”
Kasky then took command of the stage by opting to drop an “F-bomb” on national television.
As Maher explained that President Trump is an anomaly, a “virus from outer space,” the high school student interjected: “I mean this sincerely, I really do. To all of the generations before us, we sincerely accept your apology. We appreciate that you are willing to let us rebuild the world that you f*cked up.”
