It would sure be nice if Trump and his allies didn't use Twitter to "attack" / mildly criticize children, but who decided to drag Greta Thunberg onto the global stage in the first place?

In case you aren't already familiar, here's a bit about Thunberg's original talk about global warming at the U.N. in September:

My message is: We'll be watching you [pause for laughs and applause]. This is all wrong. I shouldn't be up here. I should be back in school, on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to use young people for hope -- how dare you!

The lecture goes on in a similar vein, with poor Thunberg looking more and more disturbed as she continues. The Swedish teenager is not some science prodigy who graduated young from some Ivy League school with an advanced agree in physics or anything like that. Rather, the daughter (and granddaughter) of famous actors and opera singers suffers from Asperger's syndrome, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and selective mutism. I'm no medical professional, but these things might have been brought on when (according to public sources), starting at the age of eight, Thunberg was subjected to such a barrage of climate panic that she eventually became depressed and lethargic, and also developed an eating disorder.

Now Thunberg is paraded around the globe as the voice of sanity on climate change.

Thunberg considers her medical condition to be a "superpower" that gives her a unique perspective on global warming, and she was right to say: "I shouldn't be up here. I should be back in school." The people who thrust her into the middle of a contentious global political issue should be ashamed.

As always, the Babylon Bee nails it: "Democrats Introduce Debate Strategy Of Holding Up Small Child Whenever Their Positions Are Challenged"
