Democratic senator and failed presidential candidate Kamala Harris was among the many on the Left who practically peed themselves with excitement over the announcement that teen climate activist Greta Thunberg is TIME’s 2019 Person of the Year.
Squee, you guys:
.@GretaThunberg has proven that one voice can make a difference. Her leadership in the international fight for climate justice has inspired countless young people to take up the charge for a more sustainable future. I hope our current leadership is listening. pic.twitter.com/Vt5uxWIz1L

It’s not really all that surprising that Kamala Harris would try to join in on the Greta Thunberg Fan Club love fest. But we can’t help but chuckle at the idea of Kamala Harris, of all people, heaping praise upon a young woman who’s gotten famous for ditching school.
Truancy has made a difference, I concur

So did no one tell top cop over here that the rad activist she’s talking about is part of a movement of kids walking out of school to demand climate justice?
Or is that only a thing if we’re looking for excuses to put their parents in cages?#KamalaHarrisIsStillACop

Shouldn’t her parents be in jail for Greta’s truancy?
