    Time Magazine recently named climate activist Greta Thunberg as it's 2019 Person of the Year for her tireless efforts to raise awareness of climate change. President Trump responded to their choice with this:

    “So ridiculous,” Mr. Trump tweeted. “Greta must work on her anger management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!”

    ...to which she responded...

    “A teenager working on her anger management problem,” read a new version of her Twitter biography. “Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend.”

    Typical bully!

    Wasn't it just last week when the Trump's took offense with the legal scholar who had a moment of poor judgement when she invoked their son's name in to her testimony?

    Now, I will concede that I do find Ms. Thunberg annoying, but there is no denying her passion and she in no way deserved to be unfairly criticized by the leader of the free world.

    Trump's son isn't out with a publicist trying to sell the world on a death cult like little miss potato head is. She deserves to be criticized, almost as much as her parents who put her up to this nonsense.

    While I most certainly do not share their ideals I do admire the passion with which both pursued them.

    As i said, I personally find her to be very annoying, but in no way did she deserve to have a 70 year old man criticize her for her ideals and the passionate ways in which she pursues them.

    Yes, that was part of it.

    Can you imagine his reaction if the whistleblower had been chosen?

    Greta is an activist and made herself a public figure open to criticism. Totally different situation than Trump's son.

    Why does she not deserve to be criticized? She is criticizing everyone else, is she not?

    The liberal media says we can't criticize her because she's a kid. LMAO, since when?

    They didn't have any problem attacking the Covington MAGA hat kids just last year.

    Even worse the media lied about the Covington kids.

    Sort of.
    They reported on a viral video and pretended it was news instead of bothering to actually do any real journalism and look into it at all.

    The media is just garbage at this point.

    That's :bsbullf:!
    If she was an artist that is passionate, then yeah, don't criticize her.
    However, she is a political icon that is trying to effect changes that affect you and I and every person on Earth!
    Lambast her ass just like Trump if you don't agree with her politics.
    I personally think she is an ignorant twit that is being lead around like cattle by her mentors and handlers.

    Fair enough. Criticize her stance on the issues-----don't criticize her on a personal level.
