Greta Thunberg, After Pointed U.N. Speech, Faces Attacks From the Right
Greta Thunberg, the teenage climate activist from Sweden who delivered a much-watched speech at the United Nations on Monday, has been celebrated for her activism on climate change, including galvanizing the worldwide, youth-led protests of the last week. But she has also become a lightning rod, drawing attacks by television and social media commentators. Fox News apologized after a pundit, Michael Knowles, called her “a mentally ill Swedish child” on one of its programs on Monday. (Ms. Thunberg, who is 16, has Asperger’s syndrome, a form of autism, and has called it “a superpower.”) The network called the comment disgraceful, and a spokeswoman said Fox had no plans to invite Mr. Knowles back.
"He could feel the eyes on the back of his head," Moore said as the audience laughed.
"I was stopped because suddenly he came in and security went, 'You have to step to the side.' And suddenly he came in," Thunberg explained. "I think I was very shocked."
Skavlan also asked Thunberg about Mr. Trump's tweet about her. The teen agreed that of course Mr. Trump was being sarcastic when he called her a "very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future."
"I knew that sometime he was probably going to say something about me," Thunberg said. "It was like, it doesn't make any difference, in a way."
"Skavlan" has been filming in New York all week, and Thunberg's whole interview will air on Friday, September 27.
