Think about this. The actual president of the United States is in a heated feud with a 16-year-old girl. And the president — if you insist on calling him that — is the needy, immature one.
In an interview with BBC Radio 4 this morning, climate activist and Time magazine Person of the Year Greta Thunberg said she would have declined a meeting with Donald Trump during the UN climate summit in September because it would have been a huge waste of time:
“Honestly, I don’t think I would have said anything because obviously he’s not listening to scientists and experts, so why would he listen to me? … So I probably wouldn’t have said anything. I wouldn’t have wasted my time.”
You know, I kind of gathered that based on this alone:
By the same reasoning, of course, there’s no point in discussing any subject with Trump. I mean, the guy thinks he’s an expert in drone technology and aircraft carrier catapults. He thinks a cold day in January refutes climate change. Unless you tell him Rudy Giuliani is at the door with a briefcase full of new conspiracy theories and a wheelbarrow full of McNugget sauces in need of beta testing, he’s not going to listen to anything.
That’s fine. Greta is talking to the people who matter — those of us who are going to elect a new president next November.
Yo! Pennyfarthing’s Trump-trashing series is now a trilogy! Grab your copy of Dear Pr*sident A**clown: 101 More Rude Letters to Donald Trump by Aldous J. Pennyfarthing. And, of course, Dear F*cking Lunatic: 101 Obscenely Rude Letters to Donald Trump and Dear F*cking Moron: 101 More Rude Letters to Donald Trump are still selling like lukewarm-cakes. Reviewers have called these books “hysterically funny,” “cathartic,” and “laugh-out-loud” soul-soothers.
