Parkland survivor calls on Melania Trump to intervene after Fox’s Laura Ingraham ‘cyberbullies’ her brother

Published

on

Citing First Lady Melania Trump’s campaign to end cyberbullying, Parkland survivor Lauren Hogg tagged the president’s wife in a tweet asking her to intervene after a Fox News personality attacked her brother for his gun control protests.

“HEY @FLOTUS,” the younger sister of highly-visible Marjory Stoneman Douglas activist David Hogg tweeted. “MY BROTHER IS LITERALLY GETTING CYBERBULLIED BY @IngrahamAngle.”

“ANY COMMENTS?” she asked.

Ingraham’s criticisms of the elder Hogg have ranged from a tweet earlier in the day mocking him for not getting into his first choice colleges to calling him “less than classy” for using curse words during a Fox News interview earlier in the week.

This is the second time Lauren Hogg has criticized the First Lady on Twitter. In February, shortly after the shooting, she called on her to condemn Donald Trump Jr. for liking tweets that suggested her brother was a “crisis actor.”

“You say that your mission as First Lady is to stop cyber bullying, well then, don’t you think it would have been smart to have a convo with your step-son @DonaldJTrumpJr before he liked a post about a false conspiracy theory which in turn put a target on my back,” Hogg tweeted.

The conspiracy theory “created a safe space for people all over the world to call me and my family horrific things that constantly re-victimizes us and our community,” she continued. “I’m 14 I should never have had to deal with any of this and even though I thought it couldn’t get worse it has because of your family.”

Beto O’Rourke’s ‘war tax’ policy proposal is straight out of ‘Starship Troopers’

Published

on

Amid an overcrowded Democratic presidential candidate field, it's hard to distinguish yourself from the pack if you don't slot easily into the scale that runs from "pro-corporate centrist" to "left-populist." If you're former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke —  who falls somewhere in the middle, politically, and somewhere towards the top, looks-wise — you pull a militaristic policy proposal out of your hat that recalls some of the most campy pseudo-fascist sci-fi ever written.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
