As Twitchy has reported, 16-year-old Greta Thunberg is a world-famous climate change activist with the ear of several world leaders and the UN, but she’s off-limits … you’re not allowed to “attack” her, because she has been diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, obsessive-compulsive disorder and selective mutism — plus, she’s just 16. You just have to agree with everything she says, including her advice that young people tap into their anger at older generations who ruined everything to keep them motivated.
CBS News caught up with Thunberg, who’s crossing the Atlantic on a solar-powered boat on her way to the UN, and asked if she’d meet with President Trump.

The thing is, President Trump very likely would set aside time for a meeting and nod approvingly as she spouted her nonsense.
No. The real question is why would he waste his time on a brainwashed teen being used by adults to further their hoax?

She’s a child – what gives her such special privilege ?

Being a child is what gives her special privilege.
Stop using children as props. It's unethical. Mainstream media are corrupt.

Any important news?

I think that the real question here is, "why should President Trump waste time talking to a 16 year old climate hoaxer".

Few things sicken me more than children being used for political purposes.

Hey Greta….how long have you been paying utility bills?
— Proud Dinosaur (@Proudinosaur) August 13, 2019
Well she is right.
Climate change is a waste of time.

I can't believe I waisted my time watching this nonsense

This is why I don't waste time watching @CBSNews.

This is why I don't waste time listening to children lecture me on climate change

It’s amazing the 24 / 7 media propaganda machine that is anti Trump
— Thatch Thompson (@ThatchThompson) August 13, 2019
I am the only one who is tired of celebs and kids thinking that the world must stop and pay attention to their every word, as if they have special wisdom from on high? Trump has more important things to do than to be lectured by a climate change child.

Her time is worth less than his to the point of insignificance: so what?

Note: carbon emissions- China has 1.32 billion citizens. America has 320 million citizens. Carbon emissions measured per citizen head is more than twice as high in america as that of China.

So discussion is pointless because he won’t automatically agree with you?

Ask her what she thinks about the climate activist celebrities who took their gas-guzzling carbon producing Jets and million-dollar Yachts to Italy for a climate conference.

Um…good. I’d rather he not take in to consideration what 16 year olds have to say about damn near anything, right or left.
— John O'Murchadha (@JMurchadha) August 13, 2019
Gee, i was just talking to a 16 yo about the pressure required to keep the magma combustion rate steady of the outer core such that it overcomes the thermal resistance of the mantle thereby stopping the freezing of the underground water tables so we don't dehydrate to death.

Lol made me think of Baghdad Bob back in the day marching out kids and mothers on TV proclaiming atrocities against the Iraqi people. Did CBS take Baghdad Bob on as a producer?

Seeing as the United States led the world in reducing carbon emissions following our departure from the Paris Climate Accords, meanwhile the EU saw INCREASED emissions, maybe little @GretaThunberg should turn her boat around and focus on saving her own country.
