Fresh off of spearheading the Global Climate Strike, which saw millions of participants around the world, 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg arrived at the United Nations General Assembly for a climate summit, continuing her efforts to engage world leaders in the fight against the climate crisis.

There was another notable figure there too: President Donald Trump.


Trump's administration has been no friend to the planet. He once said that global warming was a hoax invented by the Chinese. He's rolled back endangered species protections, clean water policies, and slashed environmental accountability for various industries in the name of deregulation. He pulled out of the landmark Paris Climate Accord and slashed nearly a hundred other environmental protections.

So it's no surprise that Thunberg would react with this face upon seeing him, captured perfectly in this epic GIF:

For contrast, here's Thunberg meeting former President Barack Obama last week:

But Thunberg did more than just give a look. In a rousing answer regarding her message to world leaders, Thunberg took them to task for the global inaction regarding the climate crisis.

Watch below.

Thunberg said:

"This is all wrong. I shouldn't be up here. I should be back in 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, and yet, I'm one of the lucky ones. People are suffering. People are dying...And all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth. How dare you?"

Trump stayed at the UN climate summit for approximately 15 minutes.

People could relate to the look she gave Trump.

Thunberg has previously said she feels no need to meet Donald Trump. His apathy for the environment and the inaction of world leaders everywhere doesn't seem to dampen Thunberg's resolve in the least.

Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) has long been a target of the Right wing due to her vociferous opposition to President Donald Trump.

One of Waters' most vocal opponents, Omar Navarro, ran against the Congresswoman in 2016 and 2018, losing in a landslide both times. He intends to run against her again, but a recent development may have eliminated that possibility.

For years now, President Donald Trump has claimed that the investigation into Russian interference with the 2016 election was a concentrated effort from the Federal Bureau of Investigation to undermine his campaign and subsequent presidency.

Now, the highly-anticipated review of the investigation's origins from Inspector General for the Justice Department Michael Horowitz—released Monday—has effectively debunked Trump and his allies' claims.

Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA), as Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee overseeing impeachment, was one of the most vocal critics of the public impeachment hearings overseen by the committee last month.

It turns out Nunes may not have been doing so completely out of party loyalty, but because he was in contact with Ukrainian-born Giuliani associates in an effort to pressure Ukrainian leaders to investigate President Donald Trump's political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.

The House of Representatives is expected to vote to impeach President Donald Trump before the end of the year, putting him on trial in the Senate in the same year he'll run for reelection.

As a result, more and more Republican Senators are going on the record to defend the President's actions.

Among them? Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX).

Cruz's unyielding loyalty to Trump, despite the pair's bitter rivalry during the 2016 Republican primary, confounds many to this day. Now, Cruz is repeating conspiracy theories on the President's behalf.

In an interview with Meet the Press host Chuck Todd, even the show's crew could be heard laughing at Cruz insisting that Ukraine meddled in U.S. elections.

Watch below.

When asked by Todd if he believed Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election, Cruz responded, "I do and I think there's considerable evidence." An incredulous Chuck Todd responded, "You do?"

Laughter could be heard off camera.

Cruz continued trying to make his case, but was only able to cite an op-ed from Ukrainian ambassador to the U.S., Valeriy Chaly. The op-ed was critical of Trump after Trump implied that Ukrainians in Crimea–which Russia illegally seized in 2014—would rather be living under Russian rule.

A single op-ed, according to Cruz, is equivalent to Russia's "multiple, systematic efforts to interfere in our election."

Others agreed with the Meet the Press crew that the senator's remarks were laughable.








Cruz is all but certain to vote to acquit Trump in the Senate if the President is impeached. At least it won't be without rebuke.

Former Vice President and current 2020 Presidential candidate Joe Biden erupted at a man during an Iowa town hall who accused him of actively working to get his son Hunter a board position on the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings. Biden called the man a "damn liar" before challenging him to pushups.

Republicans seized on the moment as an opportunity to discredit Biden as a candidate, but Fox and Friends cohost Ainsley Earhardt's reaction may be the most deluded yet.
