The White House pushed back Friday against claims that Donald Trump’s tweeted jab at global warming activist Greta Thunberg, 16, is incompatible with Melania Trump’s protective insistence that her 13-year-old son Barron is out-of-bounds for reporters.
The first lady has crusaded against cyber-bullying as one plank in her ‘BeBest’ platform.
The article goes on to state the following:
The president mocked Thunberg on Thursday after Time magazine named the jet-setting, school-bycotting teen its Person of the Year, leaving his spokeswoman to parry claims of hypocrisy.
A statement issued White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham, addressed the accusations of hypocrisy:
“BeBest is the First Lady’s initiative, and she will continue to use it to do all she can to help children. It is no secret that the President and First Lady often communicate differently — as most married couples do. Their son [Barron Trump] is not an activist who travels the globe giving speeches. He is a 13-year-old who wants and deserves privacy.”
The report notes that the president and Melania are trying to give Barron as “normal” a life as possible, while Malena Ernman, Thunberg’s mother, “has encouraged her to pursue an unusual path of environmental activism.”
Ernman, a former Swedish opera singer, quit touring due to the environmental impact of air travel. She “advocates for the Paris Climate Treaty, and wrote a book about ecology and sustainability.”
