Andrew Pollack, the outspoken father who lost his daughter, Meadow, in the Parkland high school shooting, hosted a charity bike ride to raise funds for a park to be built in his daughter’s name and it attracted a bipartisan group of people.

Hogg, one of the leading faces of the latest gun control movement, made an appearance at the event. He was quickly noticed by two Republican operatives, leading to quite the interesting interaction.

The Daily Caller explains what happened:

Javier Manjarres, a potential Republican challenger to Congressman Ted Deutch, and Derek Schwartz, a current GOP candidate against Lois Frankel, told The Daily Caller that they had a “polite” and “respectable” conversation with Hogg. Schwartz was wearing a shirt that featured a cartoon of President Trump urinating on a CNN logo. Manjarres told TheDC that Hogg pointed at the shirt and said “nice shirt,” before agreeing to take a photo with the two.

Hogg is a regular feature on CNN and has bragged about hanging up on a call with the White House in the aftermath of the shooting.

In a Facebook post, Manjarres summarized his exchange with Hogg:

“So while I was at Andrew Pollack’s house to support his #meadowsmovement I ran into congressional candidate Derek Schwartz and David Hogg. Hogg told me he turns 18 in April and would vote for me over Terrified Ted Deutch . I doubt it considering he is a lefty. Ted didn’t even show up to show support.”

A couple of things: Firstly, props to Hogg for not backing away from a respectable discussion with people he most certainly strongly disagrees with on the issues. Secondly, it’s unclear if the gun control activist thought about how the photo could be used against him by his pro-Trump critics, but it likely won’t be the last time he sees it.

Remember, the internet is forever.
