Fox News’ Jesse Watters today criticized Parkland student David Hogg for becoming more of a “bomb-thrower” recently.

Watters said of the March for Our Lives that at least young people were being politically engaged instead of “playing video games.”

He went through some of the “contradictions” at the rally before bringing up Hogg and alluding to recent remarks he’s made about politicians and the NRA:

“He started off––and I’ve seen him on Fox News––he started off as this balanced nice kid who was reporting the facts about what were happening at the school. And he’s just now become a real bomb-thrower. And someone like this I think isn’t helping the conversation… This guy makes people think, ‘You’re coming for my guns.’ You’re gonna say that Rubio has blood on his hands because he takes money from the NRA? Maybe he takes money from the NRA because he supports the Second Amendment.”

In a speech during the march, Hogg said, “I’m going to start off by putting this price tag right here as a reminder for you guys to know how much Marco Rubio took for every student’s life in Florida.” CNN’s Alisyn Camerota asked Hogg this morning if his “ire” is misplaced.
