The low moments in the Donald Trump term of office just keep coming. The one today is simply beyond embarrassing.
Donald Trump mocked teen climate activist Greta Thunberg on Twitter following her being named as Time magazine’s Person of the Year.
He labeled her international placement on the cover as “ridiculous” and suggested she take anger management classes. “So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!”
A most sickening display from someone who continues to degrade the nation and himself. Attacking a teenage girl is never a good idea. And attacking someone with Asperger’s syndrome is doubly wrong. She was asked to speak on climate change in front of several high-profile entities, such as the United Nations and Congress. And Trump can only seek to smear and defame her talents.
This is just too rich given that last week the White House was speaking out about a congressional witness who brought up Trump’s son, Barron. The Press Secretary called that matter a “classless move” and Melania stated the person “should be ashamed”.
Today crickets are heard from the Third Wife.
Time magazine chose Thunberg, a 16-year-old Swedish climate activist, known for holding world leaders accountable for their role in the climate crisis, as the youngest individual to receive this recognition. Simply wonderful news as it aids in spreading the message about climate change.
Melaina, who from time to time weighs into the public debate, wishes to be known for speaking out against bullying. She seems not able to handle the issue in her own home so opining about it in public forums is nothing more than a joke. It seems that she only cares about adults bullying children when it’s her own children.
And so it goes.
