Time magazine announced 2019’s “Person of the Year” this week and it’s none other than Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg.

Naturally, when Donald Trump, who was also in the running for the coveted title, found out she had been selected instead of him, he wasn’t happy about it. So he took to Twitter.

Tweeted the 73-year-old about the 16-year-old: “So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!”

But, honestly, that’s the least interesting part of the story.

Rather than taking the bait and engaging in some sort of petty Twitter back-and-forth with the man who is President of the United States, Thunberg took Trump’s tweet… and made it her Twitter bio.

Meanwhile, plenty of others came to Thunberg’s defense, with many pointing to first lady Melania Trump‘s “Be Best” campaign, which aims to end bullying, especially among schoolchildren.

Touché, Greta.

#BEBEST Donald.
