The student who’s become the face of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting victims taunted President Trump on Twitter over his draft status.

David Hogg tagged the president’s account @realdonaldtrump in a Monday night post that defended Sheriff Scott Israel saying he wasn’t a coward and implied that Mr. Trump was one.

“Calling the sheriff a coward is so ironic coming from a man who evaded the draft multiple times due to his power and influence. @realDonaldTrump you’re a hypocrite that is owned by the NRA,” he jawed at the president, before adding “please prove me wrong.”

Mr. Trump did not, in fact, call the sheriff a coward, using that word for Deputy Scot Peterson and implying similarly about other deputies, for their reported staying outside the building during the fatal rampage.
