Like millions of other high school seniors, March for Our Lives leader David Hogg has been hearing back from universities he applied to, and TMZ ran an EXCLUSIVE scoop on some disappointing news: Hogg was turned down by the four University of California campuses he applied to -- UCLA, UC Santa Barbara, UC San Diego, and UC Irvine. He got the rejections two weeks ago, and says he's a bit disappointed but he has a lot of other things going on at the moment.


The story got reblogged by Ben Shapiro's Internet Nastygram with the headline "Gun Rights Provocateur David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied" and the dismissive lede,

David Hogg, a self-appointed spokesman for a generation, revealed on Tuesday that four universities he has applied to have rejected his application.

Boy oh boy did Fox News homunculus Laura Ingraham have a good schadenfreudey laugh over how stupid that little soy boy is, getting rejected by ALL THE SCHOOLS because he's a loser who can't make the grade:

Incidentally, she knocked one point off Hogg's GPA; both TMZ and the Daily Wire have it as 4.2. As for that "whining," you can see the video: Hogg says being turned down by the four UC schools has "not been too great for me and some of the other members of the movement," like Ryan Deitsch, who was also turned down by UCLA. Hogg also put it in perspective as Just One Of Those Things:

It's been kind of annoying having to deal with that and everything else that's been going on but at this point, you know, we're changing the world. We're too busy. Right now it's hard to focus on that.

So that's "whining," according to Ingraham.

Heavens, if David Hogg were a real America-loving patriot, he'd sue to get his Advanced Placement ass accepted, just like that mediocre white girl from Texas, because obviously he's being discriminated against by affirmative action or something. Then Laura Ingraham might respect him, just like Fox News had conniptions about those terrible freedom-hating teens in Washington, but went out of its way to explain that the Nazis who marched in Charlottesville had legitimate grievances.

Or maybe Ingraham was offended by Hogg's empathy for other kids who don't get into good schools -- and for those who do, but are saddled with debt. Just see him whining about how hard other people have it, like some kind of unselfish person who thinks other people have feelings too:

I am not surprised at all in all honesty. I think there's a lot of amazing people that don't get to college, not only that do things like I do but because their voices just aren't heard in the tsunami of people that apply every year to colleges in such an economic impacted school system here which we have here in America where people have to go into massive amounts of debt just to go to college and get an education

See? He's just not happy with anything. Except for being accepted at Florida Atlantic University, Cal State San Marcos, and Cal Poly, which as safety schools aren't exactly the University of Southern North Dakota at Hoople.

Ingraham's mockery of Hogg wasn't universally appreciated -- for instance certifiable jackhole Mike Cernovich -- yes, the rape apologist one -- thought maybe Ingraham had gone a little far. Of course, other people, like Media Matters visiting fellow Melissa Ryan, noted that Cernovich had chosen an odd hill to die on:

Cernovich later made clear he wasn't suggesting there's anything necessarily wrong with mocking the teens of Parkland, who are, like the entire Left, trying to take away your guns. No, he's just saying it's bad strategy. In fact, he thinks David Hogg and the other teens are assholes who will drive Real Americans to the polls to save their guns, so there's simply no need to say anything that might make the kids seem sympathetic:

A regular beacon of decency and light, that guy is. Also, there's this potential headline Evan popped up in the Wonkette Sekrit ChatCave yesterday: "Mike Cernovich Knows What's A Good Look, Because His Eyes Are Too Close Together And That Helps Him See What A Good Look Is We Guess."

It was so mean, we thought for a moment Five Dollar Feminist had typed it! But at least with Cernovich, we can be certain we're not going after an honor student.

Especially not an honors student who knows how to activism as well as this wonderful kid:

How do you do, fellow libs? We come together tonight to cheer and clap and cry and laugh, with our leader, Elizabeth Warren, and her fellow nice people Jay Inslee (the gold standard in climate action), Beto O'Rourke (excellent on being a good ally mostly), Cory Booker (best corny love hippie but also Wall Street, it's weird), Julian Castro (I don't know, people are super into him despite his creepy twinness and his too much pomade), Amy Klobuchar (bad bitch), Bill de Blasio ( ... ), John Delaney (???), and Tim Ryan and Tulsi Gabbard.

We know, the thing we said in our headline is a thing you can say every day, but it's really intense today, maybe because Donald Trump is now filled with fear of the inescapable reality that millions of Americans who have not read the Mueller Report are going to see Robert Mueller testify on live TV on July 17, and Donald Trump will be exposed. Maybe the Big Mac vending machine next to his golden toilet is on the fritz and he hasn't had gotten to eat a Big Mac on the poop chair since last night. Maybe he's just a weak and sad person, a collection of shithole cells God meant to throw in the garbage, but accidentally implanted in Mary Trump's turkey incubator. We imagine that'd lead to a pretty constant state of anxiety and ennui.

Whatever it is, he's totally fucked right now. We were going to write a nice post about Trump's batshit interview on Fox Business with Maria Bartiromo, but we were busy, and by the time we got to it, he had performed so many batshit feats that we're just going to stick them all in this one post.

Let's start with the fight he's trying to wage with US soccer star Megan Rapinoe, who in a now-viral video stated that she has no fuckin' interest in going to the White House to meet that idiot. He got into a quarrel with her on Twitter ... or at least with a Twitter account that didn't belong to her. It's now been replaced, in order that the adult president may shit-tweet at the soccer superstar who hurt his feelings, but Splinter grabbed the original:

The rant continued:

Right. And Megan Rapinoe just said win or lose, she has no interest in meeting your crusty ass, because no decent American would consider that an honor.

Besides, she has already been to the White House to meet a legitimately elected president:

By the by, the owner of the incorrect Megan Rapinoe account saw Trump's whining and told him to grow a dick and set it on fire:

Ya burnt!

But as we said, it was a whole day of batshit from Trump, so let's continue.
