‘Stunned’ Camerota coddles Hogg after Ingraham fiasco: What kind of college wouldn’t want you?

 After getting rejected by colleges, David Hogg really needed a pat on the back.

The polemic student activist on Friday took to CNN, where anchor Alisyn Camerota exclaimed “what kind of dumb-ass colleges don’t want you?”

“David, I am stunned that four colleges rejected you,” Camerota said. “What kind of dumb-ass colleges don’t want you? I mean, you’ve taken the country by storm.”

“How do you explain this? Did they reject you before the Parkland massacre or how do you explain this?” she asked.

Hogg name-dropped a couple of the schools to refuse him entry.

“They rejected me about two weeks ago, most of them, it was UCLA and UCSD.”

The pro-gun control teenager laid the blame on a “heavily impacted university system.”

“That way I explained it is–we have a heavily impacted university system in America and I think there’s a lot of really good candidates that don’t get into college, and I think it goes to show that, regardless of whether or not you get into college, you can still change the word, the hardest part is just believing that you can and continuing that effort to change the world because you eventually will.”

He also said he’s leaning toward taking a “gap year” off college to focus on the 2018 midterm elections, asserting he’s willing to support both Democrat and Republican candidates as long as they seek stricter gun laws–and stand against the NRA.

The CNN appearance came after Hogg lead a boycott against Fox News host Laura Ingraham for poking fun at his college search difficulties, which he had previously discussed publicly.

In response to the boycott, several companies, including Expedia and TripAdvisor, cut their ties with Ingraham. The conservative commentator apologized, but Hogg refused to relent from the feud.
