Greta Thunberg is pretty used to being trolled by old white men by now. And one of her regular antagonists is none other than the President of the United States himself. So it comes as little surprise, then, that Donald Trump’s latest Thunberg-directed comments are just as rude as ever.

After the 16-year-old was announced as TIME’s Person Of The Year last week, Trump tweeted that it is “so ridiculous”. Writing via Twitter, Trump said: “Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend. Chill Greta, Chill!”

Okay, Donald. Let’s try and fight climate change by heading to the movies with a pal, why don’t we? Luckily, Thunberg has become pretty adept in the art of fielding such insults with grace and a decent helping of sass.

Almost immediately, the climate activist responded by changing her Twitter bio to: “A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend.” Lol!

What isn’t a joke, though, is the fact that politicians like Trump continue to ignore the desperate call for climate action. As Thunberg pointed out in her UN address, we are pretty fed up by now with world leaders’ “empty words” which threaten to undermine the growing climate crisis. “We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth,” she said. “How dare you!”
