While appearing on Fox News Tuesday, Parkland shooting survivor Kyle Kashuv slammed activist and media darling David Hogg as a hypocrite for hanging up on the Trump White House.
“I actually hung up on the White House the other day,” Hogg told HBO’s Bill Maher. “They actually called me the day before the listening session and asked if we were going to come, and I said I’m not coming because we expect President Trump to come to the CNN town hall, and I ended on this message with them, I said–we don’t need to listen to President Trump. President Trump needs to listen to the screams of the children and the screams of this nation.”
This didn’t sit too well with Kashuv, a 16-year-old junior who describes himself as politically conservative and a Second Amendment supporter.
“You know, I’m really trying to control my anger at what he said,” Kashuv told host Martha MacCallum. “Because, you know, the president calls you and then shows he wants to make a change, and your talking about bipartisan change and the one man who controls–who leads our nation, you know, comes to you and is like, look, let’s do something, let’s make it happen.”
“And you hangup the phone on him? That’s so hypocritical. You know, David Hogg was like–we have to make a change. Let’s make this happen. And then the White House calls you and is like let’s do it. I totally agree, let’s make the change. And then you hangup on him and then you brag about it on national television? It’s extremely counterproductive.”
“Have you talked to him? Have you told him about how you feel about this?” MacCallum asked.
“I haven’t talked to David Hogg about this, no,” Kashuv said in response.
Here’s video of the exchange:
Of course, Townhall said, “Hogg hung up on the White House because of Trump. If a Democrat had called, we all know he would have taken the call. This was about scoring points in left wing activism, and he’s surely succeeded in doing that over the past couple of weeks.”
Just as Hogg has been making the rounds on various media outlets promoting his divisive message, Townhall said Kashuv is meeting with lawmakers from both major political parties and the NRA:
Earlier today, Kashuv agreed to meet with the National Rifle Association. At the same time, he appears to be making time to meet with Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Ted Cruz (R-TX). He’s already met with Florida state Sen. Lauren Book, a Democrat.
Just got an email from @SenSchumer office. They are trying to find a time for me to chat with the Senator.
Same for @tedcruz office. People do believe in bipartisanship and it will work. I believe in this Country too much to think it won't.

But for some reason, Americans seem to be seeing and hearing a lot more from Hogg than Kashuv. We can’t help but wonder why, but we have a pretty good idea…
- Media darlings David Hogg, Cameron Kasky brag about hanging up on White House, drop ‘f-bomb’ on TV
- David Hogg: ‘I’m not going back to school’ until gun control passed; Florida lawmakers are ‘child murderers’
- David Hogg orders: ‘Sell FedEx stock’ to hurt NRA; Anti-gun libs blindly obey
- Liberal media darling David Hogg demands spring breakers boycott Florida until gun control passed
- Video: David Hogg lies about Dana Loesch on CNN, falsely claims she sells guns, doesn’t side with gun owners
