So now the 73-year-old white male who is squatting in the White House is trying to bully 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, the climate change activist who was just named Time Magazine's "Person of the Year." My response: #GoGretaGo!

If you're living under a rock and haven't heard, Thunberg earlier this year bravely stood up at the United Nations and told the world's leaders that their inaction on climate change has robbed her of her childhood, her future, and she's since led worldwide protests on the issue.

And what did Trump do? What did the man whose pretend first lady-wife is supposedly fighting cyber bullying do?

"So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!" Trump tweeted Thursday morning.

And then, Trump's idiotic staff at the White House came up with the photoshopped picture shown above on a fake Time Magazine cover.

Meanwhile, the world awaits Melania Trump's comments, since she is supposed to be leading this #BeBest anti-bullying campaign. But so far, her mouth has remained zipped shut on the topic.

However, our last "real" first lady, Michelle Obama, has had something to say. She wrote a public note of support to Thunberg following Trump's tweet, telling her:

"Don't let anyone dim your light. Ignore the doubters and know that millions of people are cheering you on."


Note: CNN produced this terrific video about the incident. It's worth a look.
