Michael Flynn’s son says Parkland survivor David Hogg's parents didn’t ‘smack’ him enough

Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s son, Michael Flynn Jr.,  lashed out at David Hogg the outspoken survivor of the school shooting in Parkland Florida, in a series of tweets following a controversy between Fox News host Laura Ingraham and the Marjory Stoneman Douglas student.

"Someone (hint: parents) clearly didn’t smack this kid much growing up.  Your emotional high will run out soon so savor it while it lasts," Flynn Jr. tweeted.

And wasn’t finished there, in a second tweet he wrote:

"If smacking your kid when he gets out of line/mouths off is “troublesome” for you, you’re one of the main reasons our kids (in the US) are #22 in the world in education."

Hogg’s previous tweets appeared to trigger the response as the youth-activist condemned Ingraham’s apology with a scathing tweet.

"I 100% agree an apology in an effort just to save your advertisers is not enough. I will only accept your apology only if you denounce the way your network has treated my friends and I in this fight."

Hogg later tweeted a list of Ingraham's advertisers, calling on them to pull their ads, which appeared to work as Ingraham announced that she will be going on vacation, taking time away from her show.
