Sixteen year old environmental rights activist Greta Thunberg was named Time Magazine's Person of the Year after taking the world by storm in 2019.

While congratulations for Thunberg inundated the internet, not everyone was pleased. One of the harshest—and most powerful—of Thunberg's critics was sitting in the White House.


Shortly before the gavel went down commencing debate in the House Judiciary Committee to finalize the articles of impeachment against him, President Donald Trump targeted the teenager with a caustic tweet to his 67 million followers.

The president of the United States publicly told the 16 year old girl to take care of her "anger management problem."

By 10 AM, Trump had tweeted or retweeted over 90 times.

Just last week, when Stanford Law Professor Pamela Karlan noted in impeachment hearings before the Judiciary Committee, the Right raged when Karlan said the name of Trump's 13 year old son, Barron Trump.

First Lady Melania Trump swiftly responded to Karlan's remark.

Yet the First Lady and practically all Republicans who criticized Karlan for making the remark stayed silent.

People noticed the hypocrisy and soon "#BeBest"—the name of the First Lady's anti-cyberbullying initiative—began trending.




People didn't hold back in criticizing the President either.


Trump's obsession with being named Time's Person of the Year is well-documented, so this isn't exactly a surprise.

Greta—whom Trump urged to "chill"—remained unbothered.

That's how to be best.
