Donald Trump is not having a great day — and that’s putting it mildly.
With Biden still ahead in electoral votes in the late afternoon, Trump’s Thursday wasn’t going well to begin with, and now Greta Thunberg has officially logged on to partake in Twitter election discourse.
Trump spent his Thursday recklessly tweeting messages like “STOP THE COUNT!” in response to close ongoing tallies in key states including Pennsylvania, Georgia, Nevada, and Arizona. He got trolled with Count memes on Twitter and was heavily criticized for his dangerous decision to argue that “late” ballots (aka legitimate ballots received by mail that are still being counted) should not be counted.
But one of Trump’s harshest criticisms came from Greta Thunberg, the 17-year-old climate activist who’s gone head-to-head with him several times before. Thunberg saw Trump’s “STOP THE COUNT!” tweet as the perfect opportunity to use the president’s own words against him, so she cleverly quote-tweeted his unhinged message.
“So ridiculous. Donald must work on his Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Donald, Chill!” the teen tweeted at the 74-year-old man.
If Thunberg’s words sound familiar, that’s because Trump tweeted the same thing at her back in December 2019 after she was announced Time‘s Person of the Year.
The grown man’s jab at a literal teenage girl was deeply embarrassing, but at the time Thunberg brushed Trump’s pettiness right off and briefly updated her Twitter bio accordingly to read, “A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend.”
The running callback to Trump’s anger management tweet certainly isn’t the only time Thunberg has shown her disgust with the U.S. president, though.
Though we’re still awaiting the election results, in the race between Thunberg and Trump, the teen has clearly emerged victorious yet again.
Trump does seem extra angry on Twitter today, so perhaps he should take his own advice and watch a good old fashioned movie with a friend.
Chill Donald, Chill!
