This gif of teen climate activist Greta Thunberg appearing to give Donald Trump the death glare has been making the rounds today:

It also caught the attention of Democratic presidential hopeful Julián Castro:
I think a lot of us can relate.

Castro loved that gif so much, he’s made it his pinned tweet:
But Donald Trump is immature or something.
I'm not surprised you can relate to a 16-year-old. https://t.co/hmvv1unOGx

To being a brainwashed angry child?

To child abuse?

It speaks really well of Castro’s character that he’s applauding Thunberg for giving Trump the stinkeye instead of asking why Thunberg’s being exploited by the adults who are supposed to be concerned for her welfare.
No, we actually are appalled at the condition of her mental and physical health and your shameful use of this sick child.

Sorry, Julián, but this doesn’t make Trump look bad; it makes you look bad.
In this case, precisely the right thing to do. Presidents aren't supposed to stop and argue with children. https://t.co/n3N4aKTR3G
