    Time Magazine named high schooler lobbyist Greta Thunberg their 2019 Person of the Year, making her the most youthful individual to be perceived. This is a much-merited honor for an excellent young lady.

    Here is Time’s official announcement.

    “For sounding the alarm about humanity’s predatory relationship with the only home we have … for showing us all what it might look like when a new generation leads, Greta Thunberg is TIME’s 2019 Person of the Year.”

    Greta excellently spoke at the United Nations climate conference, earning recognition from people all over the world, including the U.S. president, Donald Trump. Nevertheless, Trump’s attention wasn’t positive, and he instantly started to mocking the young woman, which made a snowball of his sycophants, also mocking her.

    The Latest Mocking of Greta Thunberg by Donald Trump

    Predictably, when Time published their “Person of the Year,” Trump again took to Twitter to mock Greta Thunberg.

    At the time, Thunberg also updated her Twitter bio.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential frontrunner who has frequently taken Trump to task for his behavior, chastised the President for his tweet.

    “What kind of president bullies a teenager? @realDonaldTrump, you could learn a few things from Greta on what it means to be a leader,” Biden said on Twitter.

    Criticism of Trump Bullying Greta Thunberg

    Naturally, there is no lack of people criticizing Trump’s mocking of Greta Thunberg, including Former Vice President Joe Biden and former Republican Governor of Ohio John Kasich.

    Here’s a response from first lady Melania Trump in concerns about using social media to bully somebody.

    “In today’s global society, social media is an inevitable part of our children’s daily lives. It can be used in many positive ways, but can also be destructive and harmful when used incorrectly. This is why ‘Be Best’ chooses to focus on the importance of teaching our next generation how to conduct themselves safely and in a positive manner in an online setting.”

    The comment echoed Trump’s sharp scolding in a tweet last week, something she rarely does on social media or in public, in opposition to her husband.
