Trump Jr. Reacts To Greta’s TIME Cover Like A Glue Eating Dope

In case you were wondering, the Trumps are still desperate for attention. They’re so desperate that this Wednesday, after TIME magazine announced their choice of teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg as person of the year, Donald Trump Jr. had a white-hot meltdown on Twitter about it. You’d think someone who supposedly has a company to run and recently published a book whining about Democrats supposedly being “triggered” would have something else to do… but here we are, with Trump Jr. publicly freaking out about a largely symbolic award for a teenager from Sweden.

 

Trump Jr. insisted that the pro-democracy protesters who’ve been active in Hong Kong for months should have gotten the award — although they were named among the runners-up, which this year included four interests. Besides the Hong Kong demonstrators, TIME also mentioned President Donald Trump, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and the whistleblower in the Ukraine scandal, who — although they’re still officially anonymous — called attention to the plot that has sparked Trump’s impeachment.

Trump Jr. complained:

‘Time leaves out the Hong Kong Protesters fighting for their lives and freedoms to push a teen being used as a marketing gimmick. How dare you?’

So apparently — Thunberg is just a “marketing gimmick” in Trump Jr.’s perception. He’s thereby completely dismissing the huge numbers of participants from around the world who’ve joined in the student-led push for environmental protection as threats from climate change just keep piling up. Apparently, that dismissal is because he… doesn’t like them and their methods, or something. Maybe he’d simply prefer that no one complained about pouring coal into the atmosphere, flattening forests for high rises, and other similar things.

Despite his implication that they could have gotten some crucial boost from the TIME honor, just recently, Congress united to pass legislation in support of the protesters with measures like sanctions for those perpetrating human rights abuses against them. Meanwhile, although Trump supported that legislation (which passed Congress with a veto-proof majority anyway), the president has stuck to claims like that his supposed personal advocacy with Chinese authorities is responsible for the protesters’ safety, which is just baseless.
