Since she began her campaign for climate research, teen activist Greta Thunberg has had a target on her back. She was even mocked by President Donald Trump who said that she needs anger management.The First Lady, Melania Trump, claimed that it is ok to mock the teenager because she presents herself as a public figure.
Thunberg has been often been criticized by conservative news sites as a liberal pawn. On Tuesday, right-wing radio pundit Sebastian Gorka mocked the young girls appearance by referring to her as “thunder-thighs.”
Gorka made the comments while having a discussion about high school student Nick Sandmann. Today, Sandmann reached a settlement with CNN over the network’s coverage of the student.
The pundit began, “Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann has received a settlement from CNN after the 275 million dollar lawsuit was filed against CNN.” Co-host Andrew Klavan replied, “I heard about this too, and boy, oh boy does he ever deserve it. If ever a kid — You know, these are people who will defend Greta Thuns — whatever her name. What is her name? Greta Thunberg?”
Gorka butted in, “Thunder thighs. Greta Thunberg.”
Klavan continued, “They will lay their bodies down to defend any 16 year old who stands up for a left-wing cause. And suddenly, you know, if you say anything at all about them, you’re an evil child molester.”
