CNN’s Alisyn Camerota interviewed Parkland survivor and gun control activist David Hogg Friday, asking why “dumb-ass colleges” wouldn’t accept him.
“David, I am stunned that four colleges rejected you,” Camerota said. “What kind of dumb-ass colleges don’t want you? I mean, you’ve taken the country by storm. How do you explain this? Did they reject you before the Parkland massacre or how do you explain this?”
“They rejected me about two weeks ago, most of them, it was UCLA and UCSD,” Hogg said.
“That way I explained it is–we have a heavily impacted university system in America and I think there’s a lot of really good candidates that don’t get into college, and I think it goes to show that, regardless of whether or not you get into college, you can still change the word, the hardest part is just believing that you can and continuing that effort to change the world because you eventually will,” he added.
