Michelle Obama Defends Greta Thunberg After Trump Mocks: ‘Ignore the Doubters’

Meghan McCain told her co-hosts on "The View" on Thursday that she does not agree with Time magazine's decision to declare teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg as their Person of the Year.

Time named Thunberg its Person of the Year for her climate activism. She became the youngest person - and one of only a handful of solo women - to receive it.

Of course, our young eco-queen had no problem handling Trump's tantrum herself and responded by changing her Twitter bio to: "A teenager working on her anger management problem".

Climate change activist Greta Thunberg speaks during a Fridays for Future protest in Turin, Italy, Dec. 13, 2019. Thunberg leads a young, global movement of unapologetically frustrated climate change activists while Trump has long espoused climate change skepticism and his administration has attempted to dismantle numerous environmental protections.

Thunberg, a Swedish teen who began skipping school previous year to hold weekly climate vigils, has not held back when it comes to chastising politicians - and older generations - on their inaction on global warming.

European heads of state and government chose to come back to the topic at a summit in June 2020. The future of nuclear energy, another aspect of the issues, will also be discussed, he said.

Kate Bennett, a CNN reporter, tweeted the following statement from White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham, also pointing out that Barron Trump is not an activist traveling the globe giving speeches.

Liberals pounced on Trump for bullying a teenager, especially after his wife rebuked a Stanford professor for mentioning her son's name during an impeachment hearing last week.

She told New York Times reporter Katie Rogers past year, according to Newsweek, "I don't always agree with his tweets and I tell him that".

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

Thunberg should heed the president's advice and watch an old fashioned movie, just maybe not The Day After Tomorrow. "It is not fair that we have to do all this", she said.
