Yesterday, media reported that the NRA saw a $55 million decrease in contributions last year:

More from the Daily Beast:
The National Rifle Association of America reported $98 million in contributions in 2017, down from nearly $125 million in 2016, according to new tax records obtained by The Daily Beast. Nearly one-fifth of its contributions last year came from a single anonymous donor, who chipped in nearly $19 million to the group.
For junior gun control crusader David Hogg, that news was the smoking gun, so to speak, proving that the NRA is funded by “billionaire elites”:
Billionaire elites are literally funding the NRA, how ironic.

Is it ironic? Does Hogg know what ironic means?
Well anyway, along came fellow Parkland shooting survivor Kyle Kashuv to pour some cold water on Hogg’s self-righteous finger-pointing:
You realize you’re funded by billionaires too, right? https://t.co/5rvXk1RJ0X

I don't think he has any level of self awareness

David Hogg may be lousy at spelling and grammar, but when it comes to projection, he’s a straight-A student.
