A recent New York Magazine profile on David Hogg finds the anti-gun activist now has – surprise - “developed political opinions on everything” which includes an interest in placing age limits on politicians.
The article reveals Hogg is a supporter of universal health care, thinks Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a future president, and has realized that Nancy Pelosi is old.
From NY Magazine:
In the past five months, Hogg has developed political opinions on just about everything. He is against charter schools and for universal health care. He is obsessed with Mueller’s investigation and especially the indictment of Maria Butina, the alleged Russian spy who infiltrated the NRA. He believes that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is 'a future president of the United States.' He is interested in the idea of placing age limits on politicians. 'The reason Republicans are successful right now is because they’re empowering young people,' he told me, pointing out that Paul Ryan was 45 when he became Speaker of the House. 'Older Democrats just won’t move the fuck off the plate and let us take control. Nancy Pelosi is old.' I am old enough to be Hogg’s mother, and pushed back on the idea that age equals ineptitude. Later, he posted a survey on Twitter. 'I had an interesting conversation today when the question of congressional age limits came up. Do you think there should be an age limit on congressmen, congresswomen, and congressthem?' Of more than 33,000 votes, 59 percent said yes.
Hogg can be expected to continue working on both his NRA bashing and the rest of his political agenda, as NY Mag reports that he plans to run for Congress “when he’s 25.”
