*After the soon-to-be-impeached orange a-hole in the White House tweeted his disdain for Greta Thunberg because she was chosen as Time’s Person of the year instead of him, former first lady Michelle Obama wrote a public note of support to the teen.
“Don’t let anyone dim your light,” Obama wrote, in part. “Ignore the doubters and know that millions of people are cheering you on.”
.@GretaThunberg, don’t let anyone dim your light. Like the girls I’ve met in Vietnam and all over the world, you have so much to offer us all. Ignore the doubters and know that millions of people are cheering you on.

After the magazine’s announcement on Thursday, Donald Trump (of all people!) mocked the Swedish teenager and accused her of having an anger management problem.
Even though he was named the magazine’s 2016’s Person of the Year he obviously relishes the title and wants to be enamored all over again. In fact, he so wants to be on the cover that several of his golf properties include fake copies of the magazine with him on the cover, reports The Washington Post.

Thunberg, 16, got the world’s attention when she spoke at the United Nations in September, leaving no doubt as to how she feels about the climate change situation.
“I shouldn’t be up here,” she said. “I should be back at school on the other side of the ocean. Yet, you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you? You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words.”
Thunberg, it’s has been revealed, has Asperger’s syndrome and has spoken publicly about the social challenges it creates, while also attributing her passionate activism in part to the neurological makeup she’s called her “superpower.”
In the wake of Donald Trump’s negative comments about her, Thunberg updated her Twitter profile that now says she is “a teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend.”
In other words, she can dish ish, too.
