Gun control advocate David Hogg claimed that the Florida Senator Marco Rubio refused to meet him because the loudmouth ‘triggered’. He deleted the tweet calling Rubio out after the Senator’s staff set him straight and threatened to pull the receipts. Hogg apologized and claimed that it was a ‘honest mistake’.
“Rubio staff said I can’t meet with him or his staff because I ‘trigger’ him. I just wanna have a conversation,” Hogg tweeted out. “Please meet with me @marcorubio I just want to figure out how we can stop these things from happening. We have to end the continuous debate and find out what we can agree on.”
Rubio’s chief of staff Michael Needham excoriated Hogg and called him out.
“No one said such a thing. As for the meeting, you must be confused as we had a 2p meeting scheduled with you,” Needham tweeted. “However, since you are lying and clearly using this all for self-promotion, that meeting is now cancelled.”
“Also, the reporter doing a profile of you knows the meeting is real since she was emailing yesterday with our comms team about it,” Needham said in a second tweet.
“Don’t lie again — we have receipts,” he threatened.
Hogg apologized soon after.
“[A]n honest mistake, got our meetings confused in the flurry and my staff misinformed me. I apologize. We’d still love to meet with you and have an honest, respectful discussion,” read his tweet.
“Deleted the tweet bc it wasn’t true but attaching here for transparency,” he added.
In other related news, psycho libs praised Hogg for being ‘so honest’ but absolutely none of them asked how Hogg got it in his head that Rubio was ‘triggered’ as he put it. He so clearly made it up but the left doesn’t care about the facts. Apparently, they’re just impressed that Hogg apologized.
