Liberals Say Barron Is 'Fair Game' After Trump Criticized Greta; Melania Fires Back

On Thursday, President Donald Trump trolled far-left climate change activist Greta Thunberg after she was given the TIME Person of the Year award.
“So ridiculous,” President Trump said on Twitter.
“Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend!” the President added. “Chill Greta, Chill!”
Democrats across the country immediately used the opportunity to justify their own attacks on thirteen year old Barron Trump.
On Friday, First Lady Melania Trump issued a statement through White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham to CNN, explaining the difference between her son and far-left climate activist Thunberg.
“BeBest is the First Lady’s initiative, and she will continue to use it to do all she can to help children,” the statement said. “It is no secret that the President and First Lady often communicate differently – as most married couples do. Their son is not an activist who travels the globe giving speeches. He is a 13-year-old who wants and deserves privacy.”
While Barron Trump desires a private life, Thunberg travels the globe, trashing America and President Trump. Although she dictates her far-left views, Democrats claim she is off limits because she is 16.
During the United Nations summit in December, Thunberg scolded world leaders: “How dare you continue to look away and come here saying that you’re doing enough when the politics and solutions needed are still nowhere in sight. You say you hear us and that you understand the urgency, but no matter how sad and angry I am, I do not want to believe that. Because if you really understood the situation and still kept on failing to act then you would be evil and that I refuse to believe.”
TIME magazine was so moved by Thunberg that they decided to award her with Person of the Year even though she has done very little to contribute to society."TIME editors decide who is selected as the Person of the Year — an individual or group who, for better or worse, had the most influence on the world. This year, the climate change activist Greta Thunberg was named the Person of the Year, partly in recognition of the growing influence of youth demonstrators around the world on a variety of issues," the magazine reported.
Thunberg only won the award because a small group of left-wing editors at TIME felt that she was the one deserving of the award however the reader poll result was much different.
The reader poll gave the award to the pro-democracy Hong Kong protestors. Of the 27 million people who voted on the award, more than 30% voted for the Hong Kong freedom fighters while only 4.5% voted for climate change strikers.
Check out what TIME Magazine reported:
The tens of thousands of mostly young demonstrators who have taken to the streets of Hong Kong over the past six months took first place in TIME’s 2019 Person of the Year reader poll.
More than 27 million votes were cast in this year’s survey, which offers members of the public the chance to vote on who they think had the most impact on the events of the last year. Last year, it was won by Korean pop stars BTS.
More than 30% of visitors to the 2019 poll selected the Hong Kong protestors, who have staged mass demonstrations in the semiautonomous city since June. The protests initially began in response to a controversial extradition bill, but have since grown into a outright rebellion demanding greater autonomy from China.
The protestors prompted the Hong Kong government to formally withdraw the bill, and have been credited with inspiring a record turnout at local elections held in November. But the demonstrations have grown more belligerent in recent months, as police have used increasingly aggressive tactics to confront a more radical core of protestors willing to use violence to achieve their goals.
Activists also took second place in the poll, as more than 4.5% of readers selected the climate strikers, protesters around the world who have marched to urge leaders to implement more environmentally sustainable policies.
