Hogan said another British election might be needed to give a government a mandate to make the hard decisions required to secure a Brexit deal, as May was "very damaged" as a result of the poll.
Britain's typically pro-Conservative press questioned whether Mrs May could remain in power with the clock ticking on the two-year European Union divorce process.
Now, Theresa May is seeking to form a government with the DUP - the only party who won enough seats to keep the Tories in power who haven't already rejected the idea of creating a coalition government with them.
May called the general election three years earlier than required by law, with the aim of sweeping an even greater majority for her party before Brexit talks in just eight days to take the country out of the EU.
Britain's bestselling Sun newspaper said senior members of the party had vowed to get rid of May, but would wait at least six months because they were anxious that a leadership contest could propel Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn into power.
Chancellor Philip Hammond, meanwhile, is reported to have told the Prime Minister that she needed to put "jobs first" in negotiating a new deal with Brussels, in comments seen as a coded attack on her focus on controlling immigration. "She's attempting to form a government", Corbyn told the Mirror.
Britain's inconclusive election means it is more likely to opt for a softer Brexit in which it remains in the European Union's customs union, Irish appointed EU agriculture commissioner Phil Hogan said in a newspaper interview published on Sunday. Earlier, Downing Street had said a preliminary agreement had already been secured.
Seven Republican Sinn Fein members who want a united Ireland were also elected on Thursday, but they do not attend or vote as the party does not recognize Westminster rule.

Former Conservative cabinet minister Owen Paterson, asked about her future, said: "Let's see how it pans out". The tabloid Sun newspaper called the election result "MAYHEM".

Owen Paterson, a senior Conservative lawmaker, said "let's see how it pans out", when asked about May's future. The main opposition Labour Party took 262.
The Times newspaper's front page declared "May stares into the abyss".
"May won't be able to make any compromises because she lacks a broad parliamentary majority", he said.
The arrangement with the DUP will make governing easier, but it makes some Conservatives uneasy.
Her new chief of staff will be Gavin Barwell, a former MP who was ousted from his south London constituency as a result of Labour's unexpectedly strong showing in the election.
May said Brexit talks would begin on June 19 as scheduled, the same day as the formal reopening of parliament.
On Brexit, the DUP supports leaving the European Union but opposes a return to a "hard" border with Ireland - which could happen if May carries through her threat to walk away from the talks rather than accept a "bad deal".
The DUP, whose 10 seats would allow the government to get measures through Parliament, is a socially conservative pro-British Protestant group that opposes abortion and same-sex marriage and includes both environmentalists and climate-change deniers among its senior ranks.
It was not immediately clear what the DUP's demands might be and one DUP lawmaker suggested support might come vote by vote.
