What better way to celebrate the impeachment you're too scared to testify at than by lashing out at a teenage climate activist.


While speaking about Greta Thunberg at the Davos World Economic Forum, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said that "she's in no position to give economic advice until she goes to college and comes out with an economic degree."

He also added this condescending ditty:

"Is she the chief economist? Who is she, I'm confused."

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez quickly responded on Twitter, defending the teenage climate change activist.

Many other people on Twitter also came to Greta's side.



Grown men, especially those who run powerful branches of government, shouldn't get their kicks making fun of high schoolers.



Mnuchin is hardly a paragon of virtue anyway.


Before long, Thunberg herself had responded to the Treasury Secretary's comments, saying:

"It doesn't take a college degree in economics to realise that our remaining 1,5° carbon budget and ongoing fossil fuel subsidies and investments don't add up."

Thunberg is probably happy to know she has many allies even here in America.


This should go without saying...but bullying young women just trying to make a better world doesn't make you a good person.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...
