After the 16-year-old Swedish Climate Change activist Greta Thunberg -- who I wrote about this morning -- gave her fiery, acclaimed speech at the United Nations yesterday, decrying politicians who have ignored Climate Change and stolen her childhood and her future (and was the subject of a viral video for how she glared down Trump at the U.N.), Trump did what Trump does and made a snarky, sarcastic snipe at her, saying that Thunberg "seemed like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!”
Rule #1 is not that one shouldn't get snarky with somebody smarter than you, though that's always a good standard to go by. No, Rule #1 is -- don't play games with a 16-year old who knows SO much more about using social media than you do, even if you think you're so good at it.
This is how Greta Thurnberg changed her Twitter page.
