Amid all the stress, Hogg was enraged by the fact that the First Lady's son, Trump Jr., had liked a tweet that promoted the conspiracy theory about her family.

Trump Jr. had lent his support to a tweet that alleged that her brother was coached by their ex-FBI agent father to run "cover" for the Miami Field Office's mission of tracking down Cruz.
