Trump Attacks 16-Year-Old Swedish Climate Activist Greta Thunberg

  • A petty and self-dealing man

Trump tweeted that it's "so ridiculous" that Thunberg was named TIME's Person of the Year on Thursday, because apparently having a megalomaniac wotsit-turned-business mogul as president isn't.

Trump, who has long taken a far more skeptical approach to climate change, quote-tweeted a congratulatory message to Thunberg from actress Roma Downey (who is likely very surprised to have found herself included in this tete-a-tete). The speech had a bombastic reception as Thunberg warned the U.N. that their member nations aren't doing enough to protect the environment and that future generations "will never forgive you" if failure to act eventually leads to a calamitous global climate shift.

People with fully-developed frontal lobes might reason that people who can't get the weather right tomorrow probably shouldn't be trusted to make global predictions 100 years from now.

In a rare public statement acknowledging differences between the first couple, Mrs. Trump's spokeswoman told CNN reporter Kate Bennett: "It is no secret that the President and First Lady often communicate differently - as most married couples do". Do we really want such a vicious and crass person to be our beacon of light in the White House?

Thunberg is Time's youngest-ever Person of the Year, a title that still sparks Internet curiosity one day each year despite the steep decline of magazine sales.

"Greta must work on her Anger Management problem", the president tweeted, "then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend!"

She promptly changed her Twitter biography to tweak Trump: 'A teenager working on her anger management problem.

Mrs. Trump has reportedly expressed her misgivings about her husband's Twitter habits in the past.

McCain also told her co-hosts on "The View" that "I don't put that kind of clout into the Time persons of the year. It is not fair that we have to do all this", she said.
