David Hogg puffed out and beat his chest, sort of, in an attempt to threaten President Donald Trump on Twitter.
The Parkland school shooting activist mimicked the president’s tweet from Sunday warning Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, but only changed who it was addressed to in his version which he tweeted out on Monday.
To US President Trump: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!
— David Hogg (@davidhogg111) July 23, 2018
The 18-year-old, who graduated from Marjory Stoneman Douglass High School in Florida where a mass shooting in February left 17 dead, donned his social justice warrior hat again for the not-so-original tweet and got the usual applause from the left.
The only way to fight a bad guy with ALL CAPS is a GOOD GUY with ALL CAPS!

Awesomeness, @davidhogg111 !

And while Hogg’s tweet just continued his pattern of online bullying, Trump’s words were directed at the Iranian regime which is working on a nuclear weapons program and regularly declares its hatred for America.
To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!

Some Twitter users offered Hogg a bit of cautionary advice.
If you are going to try to be a leader David, you may want to speak in a way that makes it seem as though you have some level of maturity & are a serious individual.

I think you’re great, and this tweet is excellent. However please know that Twitter may consider it problematic. Trump gets away with it, but Twitter seems to be really tough on everyone else, and is quick to suspend accounts.

But most just agreed that Hogg’s got a lot of growing up to do.
Especially following his over-dramatic tweet on Sunday warning everyone that the upcoming election “could be the last election in our lifetime.”
These Midterms could be the last election of our lifetime. VOTE

This dire warning from the teenage expert followed a tweetstorm Sunday over the #WalkAway movement as Hogg opined about the countless number of Americans walking away from the Democratic Party.
His latest bid for the media spotlight with his threat to Trump only earned the teenager a hearty dose of mockery on Twitter.
It is sad to see one so young unable to explore different view points and to mock a President of The United States who is dealing with an Iranian president has no problem in treating women as slaves. Even sadder to see a woman defending it.

Why can’t this kid just go away? He gets more and more ridiculous with each passing day.

Here is the issue you should have with that, most young people grow up and realize that decision are made In the best interest of the majority not with emotional, unrealistic, delusions of grandeur, then they #walkaway and become Republicans. Speaking from experience!

You’re still around? Your 15 minutes was over like 5 months ago.

I bet @realDonaldTrump is shaking in his shoes…
— MediaSniperNest (@MediaSniperNest) July 24, 2018
Why are liberals so dang ignorant when it comes to government and laws. The President can threaten actions against another country. Your hero Obama did it to Syria multiple times. It’s illegal for a US citizen to threaten the President.

This shows the immaturity coming from the LEFT… join the Marines and become a man.

Threatening the President of the United States is a felony under United States Code Title 18, Section 871 just saying 🤷♂️
— Travis Baker (@travisbaker98) July 24, 2018
Mark my words, this kid is a loose cannon. When he stops getting attention, it is terrifying to think what he might do to regain it. @FBI

Hey kid, this isn’t a game. Shut up. That’s our President you’re threatening. If anything happens to him millions of us will respond.
