Greta Thunberg Mocks Trump by Making His Insult Her Twitter Bio
President Donald Trump criticized climate activist Greta Thunberg on Thursday after she won Time magazine’s Person of the Year. The 16-year-old responded by turning Trump’s insulting tweet into her Twitter bio, without actually engaging with the President.
“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.

Thunberg responded by changing her bio to describe herself in the way Trump had.

There was some speculation that Trump himself might be named Person of the Year or that those involved in his impeachment would be chosen. Thunberg has often responded to insults by embracing them on Twitter, rather than replying to those who attack her.
