    Climate activist Greta Thunberg was named Time magazine’s Person of the Year 2019 and almost immediately grabbed the attention of US President Donald Trump, who accused the 16-year-old of having anger issues and suggested she “chill” and attend a “good old fashioned movie.”

    Triggered by TIME

    Trump, the same man who proudly displayed a Time magazine cover doctored to feature himself at his Mar-a-Lago club and Trump National Doral resort in Florida, appeared a little peeved on social media over Thunberg’s new title.

    While Trump’s antics are to be expected, many, such as Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, wondered where first lady Melania Trump’s “#BeBest” campaign against cyberbullying was in this moment. Though FLOTUS and her initiative were nowhere to be found, Thunberg - once again - defended herself by changing her Twitter bio to mirror Trump’s comments.

    “A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend,” read the 16-year-old’s new bio.

      The attempted impeachment of US President Donald J. Trump has undoubtedly been one of the most partisan political spectacles in America’s history, with all members of the rival Democratic Party in the Senate impeachment trial being for his removal from office, and the vast majority of Trump’s Republican Party being against it.
