David Hogg Launches Attack on Paul Ryan, Demands Gun Control Vote (VIDEO)


David Hogg

Minutes after House Speaker Paul Ryan announced his retirement from Congress this morning, David Hogg used the opportunity to bully him via Twitter to hold a vote on gun control. He and the March for Our Lives Twitter account even seemed to take credit for his resignation, including asking “Who’s next?”

Hogg has used his bully pulpit to shame and intimidate politicians, media, and businesses to bow to his gun control agenda, and Ryan appears to be his new target.

He did so by retweeting gun control advocates who were targeting Ryan, and tweeting about his attempts to call his office to demand a vote.

First, Hogg retweeted this tweet from former congresswoman Gabby Giffords’ gun control group, which painted Ryan as a sellout to the NRA.

Then, he began his lecturing.

He then retweeted the March for Our Lives twitter account, which seemed to celebrate (and take some credit) for Ryan’s retirement.

He then encouraged his followers to flood Ryan’s offices with calls to force a vote on background checks.

He then vented his frustration at not getting through to his office. It didn’t help that his hashtag to Speaker Ryan was misspelled.

And then there was this, a smug video message he sent to Ryan, demanding a background check vote.

Speaker Ryan has not responded to Hogg’s demands, nor has he scheduled a vote on background checks or gun control legislation.
