    In response to a video clip of Greta saying, "People are suffering, people are dying, entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth," trump with his trademark troll behavior decided to mock her.

    The right wing is currently trying to denigrate and mock a 16 year old girl because she has the courage to act on an issue that threatens every single member of her generation and the generations to come.

    Climate Change is Real. Climate Change is a Threat.

    Shame on those who would mock a teenager for putting a voice to that reality in front of the world's leaders.

    I agree with the scientists on climate change, but I would in no way consider what Trump posted as mocking.

    I don’t think it’s fair to mock a petulant child who clearly doesn’t have the life experience or intellectual capacity to really understand what they’re talking about.

    People should be nicer to Greta Thunberg too. :cool:

    So the left found another teenage pawn to exploit. Nice

    This chick willingly inserted herself into a highly charged subject, if she cant take the heat then get out of the kitchen.

    So far the left has exploited kids for gun control, illegal immigration, refugees and now this. The left should be ashamed of themselves.

    Why are liberals always angry? Even their kids are angry.

    And this kid is brainwashed. Probably too far gone to be saved.

    Well, you just blew up this thread. The only way libs can save it is if they deploy their infamous double standards and hypocrisy.

    Putting a stupid, ignorant, obnoxious child in her place when she is rude and nasty, says stupid things, oversteps her bounds, misbehaves, skips school IS NOT mocking, it's what responsible adults do.

    Duh

    I adore him mixing in Verunca Salt. Hilarious.
    People need to remember that Big Brother in 1984 used children to enforce authoritarianism. The former Soviet Union rely upon children to report their parents? And now this woman sounding like a megalomaniac? We shall do as she orders?!?!?

    he's not mocking her, not yet anyway, we'll know when he's mocking her.

    I have no problem with what he said, If it had been me I would have replied with "I wanna party with you cowboy!"

    That's my go to response if someone is preaching doom and gloom to me. (Mass extinction qualifies)

    Some day her husband will come home to that.

    I also wonder how many casting calls the left had before they found a totally unlikable kid?

    This whole thing is just bizarre. Who's orchestrating this clown show and what exactly do they think will be the result? Are we supposed to start hyperventilating about the climate because this creepy little girl says so? Seriously, what is this ****?

    Well to their defense, most leftist haven't much more logic resources than a sixteen year old girl from a foreign country! So ya I understand how they might gravitate to and orbit her!

    Ya know, Greta Thunberg should be singing the Praises of America, because America has made more strides in Clean Energy and reducing our Carbon Footprint then probably any other Nation on Earth. Compare Los Angeles today, compared to what it was like in the 1940's through the 1970's, it was SMOG Heaven. Cars in the United States are running so clean now, States like Washington are ending Emission testing. Factories and Nuclear plants are force to operate under much stringent operating standards and were doing everything we can to be better Stewards for the Planet than the rest of the world. Other then liberal paradises, such as Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco where Homeless are allowed to Pollute the environment without any consequences, the United States has come a LONG! way, but there are a lot of other Nations like China, India and countries in South America that continue to Pollute worse then they ever have.

    Perhaps I missed part of her speech, but pretty much all I heard was blaming people for not fixing something she thought was wrong.

    While Trump didn't actually mock her, he'd have been better off not saying anything. The media will twist it as best they can.

    I thought I heard her say under her breath, "He wants you too Malachai".
    Even if the world is warming, who is to say that the world is currently at a perfect temperature. What if climate change results in turning Syberia into a bread basket?
    But, she is too young to remember we have been warned over and over again, we're all going to starve to death. We're all going to die in acid rain. We're all going to die when we run out of oil. We're all going to freeze to death in a new ice age. We're all going to die in global warming. We're all going to die in "Climate Change".. an odd term. Um, yeah, the climate changes. None of this has happened as predicted.

    The climate change scam is widely discredited in scientific and political circles.

    The solution is indoctrination of children, via appeals to emotion.

    The hope is that these kids will influence their parents vote.

    I was just reading about how dems are using kids to influence their parents in the democrat primary.

    One of the targets of her wokescolding(and lawsuits) is France.

    France is one of the lowest carbon-emitting countries on the planet, thanks to 70% nuclear and another 20% renewable(solar and wind). 90% green energy, but I guess that's not enough for Greta, because reasons.

    And not a peep out of her about China, because other reasons.

    Further proof that this isn't an environmental movement, it's a leftist political charade.

    Notice she won't go to India or see her fellow commies in China because they ain't buying it, and they sure aren't going to give up any money because of it.
