David Hogg Puts Steve King On Blast For Voting Rights Tweet: Your ‘Only Goal Is Dividing America’

David Hogg, one of the most vocal student activists from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, is calling out Rep. Steve King (R-IA) for a tweet he sent questioning young people’s right to vote at 18 if they don’t want people to own a gun at that age.

Hogg responded that gun violence kills “so many of us” before the age of 21 and went on to attack King for his often divisive rhetoric:

This is far from the first time King has tried to troll Parkland survivors. His Facebook page also posted a meme of Emma González speaking at March For Our Lives on Saturday trashing her for wearing a Cuban flag patch on her arm.

Clearly King is undaunted by the influence of these young people. For that lack of care, he may be in for a very rude surprise come November. Time will tell.
