Michelle Obama’s speech to University of Miami students was undoubtedly music to David Hogg’s ears.
Obama is trying to boost young voter turnout for Democrats, and played to her audience.
Early in her remarks, she insisted she wasn’t there “stumping for an one candidate.”
“Michelle 2020!” someone yelled.
Moments later, she urged students to “take some of their power back.”
“You wouldn’t give your grandmother the power to decide what clothes you wear to the club. You wouldn’t give your crazy uncle the power to post a picture to your Instagram feed. So why would you give a stranger the power to make far more important decisions in your life?” she said.
Now that her husband is no longer president, it’s apparently the kids turn to rule.
“And for all the young people in the room, this is your future,” she said. “It’s time for us to move out of the way and let you lead!” she added to cheers.
In March, the anti-gun Hogg had a similar message, slamming adults as old fuddy duddies just in the way.
“When your old-ass parent is like, ‘I don’t know how to send an iMessage,’ and you’re just like, ‘Give me the fucking phone and let me handle it.’ Sadly, that’s what we have to do with our government. Our parents don’t know how to use a f–king democracy, so we have to,” he said in an interview, according to the New York Post.
