The always-classy Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene took to Twitter on Sunday to attack Parkland shooting survivor and gun control activist David Hogg.Greene’s tweet was bad enough on its own, but it looked even more desperate next to 22-year-old Hogg’s reply.
Hogg is a co-founder of March For Our Lives, a gun control group that was formed in 2018 following the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 people dead.The group is planning a protest in D.C.
later this month to show support for sensible gun control reform after the multiple mass shooting events across the country, and particularly the school shooting in a Texas elementary school that killed 19 children and two teachers.“@davidhogg111 I hear you & your girls are funded to come to town this week to once again try to manipulate some of my gutless weak colleagues to vote for gun control that will violate our freedoms and leave Americans defenseless,” Green wrote, adding “I don’t see you on my schedule, why not?”“Congresswoman Greene,” Hogg responded. “I’m more interested in protecting children and meeting commonsense people who are looking for reasonable solutions to stop children from dying.
Don’t really have time to help you go viral for attacking survivors so you can fundraise. Respectfully, David.”Congresswoman Greene,I’m more interested in protecting children and meeting commonsense people who are looking for reasonable solutions to stop children from dying.
