Michelle Obama Comes to Defense of Greta Thunberg
Michelle Obama Comes to
Defense of Greta Thunberg.
Former first lady Michelle Obama
recently took to social media to offer
words of encouragement to climate
crisis activist Greta Thunberg.
In a Twitter post,
Obama told Thunberg to never
“let anyone dim [her] light.".
Don’t let anyone dim your light.
Like the girls I’ve met in Vietnam
and all over the world, you have
so much to offer us all, Michelle Obama, via Twitter.
Ignore the doubters and know that
millions of people are cheering you on, Michelle Obama, via Twitter.
Obama's tweets were seemingly in response to Donald Trump
mocking Thunberg a day earlier on Twitter.
Greta must work on
her Anger Management problem,
then go to a good old fashioned movie
with a friend!
Chill Greta, Chill!, Donald Trump, via Twitter.
Trump’s mocking of Thunberg was spurred on by her
recent naming by ‘Time’ as 2019’s Person of the Year.
This is not the first time the president of the United
States has publicly made fun of the 16-year-old activist.
In September, Trump sarcastically called Thunberg
a “happy young girl” after she delivered an emotional
speech in front of the United Nations General Assembly.
In both instances, Thunberg
has responded to Trump’s
comments by mockingly
making them her Twitter bio.
