Left-wing activist David Hogg announced in a recent interview that he plans to run for political office when he turns 25, following the lead of the young socialist Democratic candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who he’s touted for president.
In the NYMag puff piece, writer Lisa Miller says Hogg told her that he plans to “run for Congress when he’s 25.”
“I think I’ve come to that conclusion,” Hogg said. “I want to be at least part of the change in Congress.”
Hogg said his goals are to go to college next year and “read a sh*tload of books” before working on a presidential campaign in 2020.
Hogg bashed multiple Democrats in the interview, including “old” Nancy Pelosi, “terrible on guns” Bernie Sanders, and Barack Obama — who he says “increased drone warfare and killed a lot of civilians.”
Miller noted that Hogg, who she describes as a “spokesman” for “radicalized” young Americans, “frequently uses the word narcissistic in reference to himself.”
Miller’s piece compares Hogg to “the Greatest Generation,” despite the fact that he repeatedly mocks older generations, like his “old-ass parent[s]” who he claimed in a past interview were too stupid to “send an iMessage” so they had to give him “the f***ing phone.”
I remember, it was before your generation started shooting up the schools David, even though we still had guns. Thank you for confirming..again…that it’s not the gun, it’s person, and in particular you & your peers millennial culture. @davidhogg111 #whenhoggsaysstupidshit #2A pic.twitter.com/NPf8Qsoqtt

As for socialist Ocasio-Cortez, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez recently designated her as “the future of the Democratic party.” Republicans are so excited to have her be the face of the Democratic party that they have already created a campaign ad to celebrate her political future.
