In the tradition of Trump putting fake Time magazine covers of his face in his golf resorts, his campaign decided to indulge their propaganda jones. Trump also tried to bully Thunberg in a tweet today.
President Trump‘s reelection campaign on Thursday tweeted an edited cover of Time magazine’s “Person of the Year” issue that depicted the president’s head on the shoulders of Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old climate change activist.
The tweet, sent Thursday morning, suggested that the magazine had erred in naming Thunberg Person of the Year and listed accomplishments of the administration.
Time magazine announced Thunberg its Person of the Year on Wednesday, citing the activist’s inspiration of school strikes and marches around the world in support of action against climate change and greenhouse gas emissions. The selection was widely praised, including by Trump’s 2016 rival, Hillary Clinton.
When you're the leader of a nation and this is how you react to a child who's trying to draw attention to an environmental crisis that will affect everyone in the world, that speaks volumes about your character as a human being. #GretaThunbergOutdidTrumphttps://t.co/g0RCBygCfC

"Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!," President Trump tweeted at the 16-year-old.
