Last week David Hogg was whining about not getting into college and leading harassment campaigns against members of the media who dared to point out that he was whining about not getting into college. Today he announced he’s not going to college at all next year:

David Hogg has been accepted at the University of California, Irvine, “but he will not be going to college this year because he’s decided to take a year off and work on the midterm elections,” his mother, Rebecca Boldrick, told CNN Monday. She said her son hopes to register and educate new voters and to “get people to vote.”
A lot of people are giving him shit for this, but I just wanna make one thing clear about this – David Hogg would be an idiot if he ever wasted his time going to college. You go to college to get a degree so you can get a job that pays more money. It’s supposed to be an investment. But David Hogg has something that an education can’t buy – millions of followers and influence over them. Agree with him or not, when this shithead tweets his followers do exactly what he tells them to. Christ Didi Delgado makes bank with a few thousands idiot white women who follow her off of cliffs. Think of what David Hogg could do with a Patreon account. Would it be in bad taste? Absolutely. But what the fuck does he care at this point? Everything he’s done for the last month has been in bad taste.
The most important thing he’s got going for him is his Twitter account. He’s currently got 750K followers. Emma Gonzalez has 1.5 million. These are no longer students, they are celebrities. For some perspective, Ben Shapiro has 1 million followers. He’s spent his entire career building his brand by creating quality content. He’s likely worth millions of dollars. David Portnoy has 690K followers. He’s worth millions. Same with Clay Travis. When you have that many people that you can speak directly to on a daily basis all you have to do is sell them shit. If he wants I’ll start getting the t-shirts ready. “Little Marco,” “Fuck the NRA,” “We Call BS,” Laura Ingraham crying Jordan face shirts, shit like that. Sell, sell, sell!! Then get a podcast, line up a bunch of sponsors (pretty much everyone would be lining up to advertise on his platform), and write a book.
Right now David Hogg has the ability to make over $1 million a year. Easily. If he goes to college he’ll waste his time getting a gender studies degree and he’ll eventually be forgotten about because his 15 minutes of fame will run out. He’d be insane not to make himself a left wing version of Shapiro or Matt Walsh at this point. Hate him or love him (I can’t stand this rat puke) this is the smartest decision he’s ever made.
