Our favorite smug gun-grabbing high-schooler David Hogg just told the NY Magazine that in seven years he’s gonna run for Congress:
As the procession moved down the boardwalk along Huntington Beach, where a Democrat has not won a House election in 42 years, cyclists and runners and parents pushing strollers stopped and stared at the young man who, having turned 18, looked more than capable of achieving what he told me recently he has decided he now plans to do: run for Congress when he’s 25.
So he’s going to upend 49 years of Republican domination? Yeah, good luck with that.
But even more interesting is that he’s already convinced that our favorite socialist from the Bronx is going to be president one day:
In the past five months, Hogg has developed political opinions on just about everything. He is against charter schools and for universal health care. He is obsessed with Mueller’s investigation and especially the indictment of Maria Butina, the alleged Russian spy who infiltrated the NRA. He believes that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is “a future president of the United States.” He is interested in the idea of placing age limits on politicians. “The reason Republicans are successful right now is because they’re empowering young people,” he told me, pointing out that Paul Ryan was 45 when he became Speaker of the House. “Older Democrats just won’t move the fuck off the plate and let us take control. Nancy Pelosi is old.”
I know young people are naive sometimes, but this is just crazy. Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t even know what she’s talking about yet. I mean she accidentally beat a major Democrat in NY, but has then embarrassed herself and her party multiple times with her lack of knowledge on the basics of…well many things. She’s been fact-checked by multiple organizations (Wapo, CNN) and found to be WRONG on everything fact-checked. Also she’s a socialist, and not even a good one.
Yet he thinks she’s gonna be president one day?
Yeesh. I only hope he’s smarter in seven years, but I have my doubts about that.
Let’s make this an open thread. Here’s a video of a cute new lifeguard at the beach:
