Late-Night TV Hosts Slam Donald Trump For Attacking Greta Thunberg, 16, Over ‘Time’ Person Of The Year Honour

The hosts of late-night TV went after Donald Trump Thursday after he attacked teen climate activist Greta Thunberg on Twitter.

‘Time’ magazine named Thunberg as its “Person of the Year” for 2019, and Trump wasn’t too thrilled about the 16-year-old nabbing the honour:

Stephen Colbert then said on “The Late Show”: “First of all, teens don’t go to movies anymore. They stay at home and Tik-Tok their Vape pens on Fortnite. I don’t know. Teenagers scare me.

“But since Thunberg is Swedish, let me put this in culturally appropriate terms: Mr President, go Fjuk yourself, which I can say on CBS because Fjuk is an island in Sweden.”

Jimmy Kimmel then added on his show, “Says the sweaty old man who’s mad at a magazine because they didn’t put him on the cover of it. And the fact that Greta Thunberg is a teenager makes this especially insane.”

Kimmel mentioned Thunberg changing her Twitter bio to read, “A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend.”

The host joked, “Trump hasn’t been roasted that thoroughly since the last time he locked himself in his tanning bed.”

Jimmy Fallon also had his say. See more in the clip below.

“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
