CNN’s Camerota to David Hogg: ‘What Kind of Dumbass Colleges Don’t Want You?’

Friday on CNN’s “New Day,” co-host Alisyn Camerota was surprised any “dumbass colleges” would reject Parkland survivor and gun control activist David Hogg.

Camerota asked, “David I am stunned that four colleges rejected you. What kind of dumbass colleges don’t want you?! I mean you have taken the country by storm. How do you explain this? Did they reject you before the Parkland massacre? Or how do you explain this?”

Hogg answered, “They rejected me about — let me think, about two weeks ago, most of them. It was UCLA and UCSD. The way I explain this is we have a highly impacted university system in America. And I think there is a lot of really good candidates that don’t get into college. I think it goes to show regardless of whether you get into college, you can still change the world. The hardest part is just believing you can and continuing that effort to change the world because you eventually will.”

Camerota’s question comes after Fox News host Laura Ingraham lost advertisers for criticizing Hogg on Twitter about not getting into colleges.
