Responding to President Trump’s address on Tuesday night, famed historian and immigration expert David Hogg, who was admitted to Harvard University despite the fact that he reportedly got a score of 1270 out of 1600 on the SAT, while the bottom 25% of students admitted had an average score of 1460, decided to weigh in on Twitter, pontificating, “Reminder: No one is illegal on stolen land #TrumpAddress.”
Hogg does have a history of making rather outrageous remarks; last July he mocked President Trump’s tweet in which Trump warned Iranian president Rouhani not to threaten the United States, Trump wrote, “To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!”
Hogg tweeted the message to President Trump, ignoring the fact that he was threatening a sitting president, “To US President Trump: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!”
Last August, Hogg decided to wield his gun expertise by tweeting that the “NRA is pulling strings to increase gun sales in a record low year.”
That claim was debunked by Stephen Gutkowski of The Washington Free Beacon on Twitter.
Hogg’s habit of making pithy statements that make no sense also included this gem about gun control back in November: “Imagine saying the only way to stop shark attacks is with more sharks.”
The Daily Wire’s Ashe Schow responded to that:
If we took Hogg’s analogy to its logical conclusion for gun-control activists, the picture gets pretty silly. It also illustrates the problems with gun-control arguments. Banning sharks, as many activists want for guns, would mean killing sharks or – gasp – building a wall to keep them out of our waters. Putting severe restrictions on sharks wouldn’t work either, as sharks aren’t going to listen. Maybe we could put up signs that say “Shark-Free Zone,” to keep the sharks from being around people. Maybe we could do background checks on sharks to see which ones have committed shark crimes previously and keep only them away from our shores. Maybe we could pass laws against shark attacks, and then pass more laws against shark attacks if they don’t stop.
Hogg’s new tweet about “stolen land” engendered a flurry of responses:
