David Hogg Wants to Reboot Laura Ingraham Boycott
Rebooting TV shows isn't enough. Now we're rebooting boycotts on media personalities we don't like. At least, that's what David Hogg is trying to do.
So @IngrahamAngle we meet again. Who are you biggest advertisers now?— David Hogg (@David Hogg)1529407517.0
If you're not sure why there's a bug lodged between David's rectal cheeks, it's because of this clip from Laura Ingraham's show Monday night.
“Consistent with American law when parties are arrested, your children are either sent to relatives or they become wards of the state. Since more illegal immigrants are rushing the border, more kids are being separated from their parents, and temporarily housed in what are essentially summer camps or, as the San Diego Union Tribune described them today as looking basically like boarding schools.”
To be charitable, let me just say there's such a thing as going overboard in running defense for Donald Trump. Let's not pretend there isn't a wealth of lies and misinformation being spread in need of rebuttal (see Erick Erickson Lays Out How Terrible the Press Has Been on Immigration and The TRUTH About the Trump Mural at the Migrant Detention Center). "Summer camps" wasn't the best analogy. Unless Laura went to a bad summer camp we all need to avoid. If you're going to say "detention camps are like summer camps" a suggestion: capture photos of kids making jewelry with macaroni noodles. Not looking like they're in general population hoping to get out early on good behavior.
Pictures + 1000 words = I shouldn't have to explain this.
But we're not here to talk about analogies gone wrong. We're here for the Hogginator's boycott reboot. The anti-gun activist wants to boycott Laura -- again -- for *squints at notes* an analogy that has nothing to do with the one reason anyone knows him. That is, being against the NRA, guns, and chins.
Seriously, Junior, go get your lunch money.
The last time Hogg tried a boycott, companies went back to Laura and her ratings shot up. David Hogg trying to make a boycott happen is not grace in motion. Think of Tess Holliday performing a swan dive. That's David Hogg trying to separate news personalities from their audiences.
David, you're really not good at this. It's getting embarrassing.
