This is what the Left assumed they were getting when they bought into the David Hogg mythology: A bright and articulate young man who understands the issues that divide us and can debate them with opponents many times his age.
Hogg instead is a semi-literate, foul-mouthed brat that has long overstayed his Warholian fifteen minutes thanks to the plumping of the progressive movement, which would rather sound foolish than say nothing at all.
Today’s tweet is by Hogg’s fellow Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivor and graduate, Kyle Kashuv. It is in response to a tweet by John Brennan, CIA director under Barack Obama, who has become something of a sourpuss in the wake of well-deserved criticism for his failures in his former capacity.
Lately, Brennan has spent much of his time firing off angry messages at the Trump administration and Republicans as a whole. Typical of these is one he sent Friday that encapsulates his jaundiced reaction to embattled FBI agent Peter Strzok’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee:
Watching the spectacle of the House “hearing” with Peter Strzok today, I was reminded of the words of Abraham Lincoln:
“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”

Young Kashuv set Brennan straight on what genuinely ails him, while also pointing out an erroneous source reference.
Sorry, dude, Lincoln said no such thing. You're just upset that the kakistocracy you were a part of that was collapsing after its lamentable journey is no longer collapsing because we don't have HRC as POTUS.

In the unlikely event David Hogg stumbles upon the tweet, kakistocracy is a form of government in which the least qualified and ethically and morally bankrupt citizens are in control. Maybe Hogg can copy and paste the word onto a sheet of paper taped to his refrigerator, along with the nearly-as-hard lamentable (“sad”).
