After President Donald Trump hilariously mocked Greta Thunberg on Twitter this week, former First Lady Michelle Obama came to the defense of the 16-year-old climate activist and sent a Tweet of support to Greta, CBS News reports.
Trump had tweeted, “So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!”
“Don’t let anyone dim your light,” Obama wrote, in part. “Ignore the doubters and know that millions of people are cheering you on.”
Michelle’s message came just a day after President Trump slammed the climate change activist, who earlier this week was named Time’s 2019 Person of the Year.
Time said it chose to honor the 16-year-old “for sounding the alarm about humanity’s predatory relationship with the only home we have, for bringing to a fragmented world a voice that transcends backgrounds and borders, for showing us all what it might look like when a new generation leads.”
Thunberg, who has Asburgers’s, attributes her passionate activism in part to the neurological makeup she’s called her “superpower.”
