Democratic billionaire Michael Bloomberg gave left-wing activist David Hogg a big check last week at an award ceremony for the Parkland activist's work against the NRA.
Bloomberg — who is a major financial backer of two anti-gun groups, Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action — presented Hogg with the check and an award at The Common Good Forum & American Spirit Awards. The group's website states:
Michael R. Bloomberg presented Parkland student activist David Hogg with the American Spirit Award for Citizen Activism and The Common Good College Scholarship for $2,500.
"When we were backstage he asked me what should I do," Bloomberg said. "I said, well, start out by finishing high school."
"This battle will not take days or years, it will take lifetimes," Hogg said. "And the only way we are going to get through it is not as partisans but as Americans."

Hogg recently led a group of students to a grocery store where they screamed on the floor demanding a boycott because the store had donated money to a politician who is backed by the NRA.
Hogg has also indicated that he intends to use his year off from school to make memes:
