President Donald Trump couldn’t contain himself any longer.
On Wednesday TIME Magazine announced its “Person of the Year,” 16-year old climate crisis activist Greta Thunberg, who has motivated countless millions to learn about and take action to combat the existential emergency the world is facing.
On Thursday the Leader of the Free World, President Donald Trump, attacked the 16 year old, who is on the autism spectrum, as having an “Anger Management problem.” He told her to “chill,” and “go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend!” Trump, who was in the running but lost, also called Thunberg being named TIME’s “Person of the Year,” “ridiculous.”
So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill! https://t.co/M8ZtS8okzE

Trump’s bullying of the climate crisis activist motivated many to ask the First Lady how her husband’s actions comport with her “Be Best” campaign to battle the online bullying of children.
Others asked how Republicans could be so outraged last week when an impeachment witness merely mentioned the First Family’s youngest son’s name yet here is the President literally attacking a child and from the GOP, “crickets.”
i assume all the people who were mad about the MERE MENTION of Barron Trump’s name during an impeachment hearing will, of course, speak out against the President of the United States taking to social media to pick on a 16 year old girl? Where’s Melania?
oh okay then! https://t.co/AQlk94tcxE

Sooooo… @realDonaldTrump doesn’t get the Time cover so he rage tweets a 16 year old??
Hey @FLOTUS; are you as fierce a defender of minor children deserving privacy and advocate against using a child for “biased public pandering,” or was that just a last week thing??#BeBest pic.twitter.com/ymscD6p9lA

I thought attacking a minor child was horrible. Where’s Melania, the GOP, State TV, all the right wing nuts who went Bonkers last week???? Oh she’s a lefty and a young woman so it’s OK. Women don’t forget GOP…
