Michelle Obama Tweets Encouragement To Greta

The Hill reports:

Former first lady Michelle Obama sent a message of encouragement to 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg early Friday morning after she faced ridicule from President Trump, telling the teenager to “ignore the doubters.”

Trump tweeted Thursday that it was “ridiculous” that Time magazine chose Thunberg as its 2019 “Person of the Year,” an honor he was shortlisted for. Trump wrote that the teenager needed to “work on her Anger Management problem.”

Thunberg did not directly address the president’s comments, but changed her bio on Twitter to describe herself as a “teenager working on her anger management problem.”
