Congrats Greta, and she didn't even have to beg Japan's prime minister to do it for her.

Nothing like a little exploiting children to serve one's purpose. Just don't let them show up at the border.

The Nobel Prize is becoming a joke.

"Nothing like a little exploiting children to serve one's purpose."


Agreed. St. Greta of Thunberg's parents should be disgusted with their behavior. Exploiting their special needs child in their desperate attempt to be famous. It really is tragic. Poor kid.

looks to others that her "special needs" resulted in a very headstrong character with laser-like focus


so when she locked onto the climate change complex they supported her doing that


by what criteria would you judge her to be exploited?

Ha, Trump must be furious. Wonder if he will have the restraint this time to not cyber bully a teenager again like he did with the Time cover.

It's classic for Asperger sufferers to laser-like focus on a single subject and nothing else. Greta needs a good bath for starters.

Congratulations, Greta Thunberg!

Expect more of the vitriol and hate hurled at you for being named Times Person of the Year, but know that far more of us admire your courage and dedication.

And if Trump were nominated Trumpers would say the Prize is the most prestigious, yuuuugest bigly deal in the world and how deserving he is.

Now her head is going to explode. As if she wasn't arrogant enough.

^^^It's hard to say what she actually understands. She will understand that her minders are pleased, and that's probably enough for many children. She will always be a child in many ways, by the looks of it.

Some people like to live vicariously through their children.

Are these the same high minded folks who reacted with outrage when a witness at the impeachment hearings merely alluded to the fact that our president has a son named Baron?

Only certain kids deserve being honored with kind words and tolerance, as we see here. The chivalry and gentility of our rightward marching comrades is quite heartwarming!

Punching down has become a sport for some people, hasn't it?

"Merely alluded"? Perhaps a refresher as to the meaning of "alluded" is in order, carol:

VERB

alluded (past tense) · alluded (past participle)

  1. suggest or call attention to indirectly; hint at.

    "she had a way of alluding to Jean but never saying her name"

No "allusion" here, Prof. Karlan said it loud and proud:

Stanford law professor Pamela Karlan raged against the president's assertion of broad executive powers and privileges during Wednesday's hearing on the Constitutionality of House Democrats' impeachment inquiry, saying: "Contrary to what President Trump says, Article Two does not give him the power to do anything he wants."

"The Constitution says there can be no titles of nobility, so while the president can name his son Barron, he cannot make him a baron," she quipped, as an example differentiating between the presidency and a king.

Great point! And that was such a vicious insult from Prof. Karlan, wasn't it?

You're being a tad harsh, carol. Petty and completely inappropriate covers it nicely.
