Chris Cuomo Says Greta Thunberg Is Off Limits Because She’s A ‘Kid.’ Twitter Users Recall Some Recent CNN History

CNN host Chris Cuomo received some unsolicited CNN history from Twitter users on Thursday after a post declaring teenaged climate activist Greta Thunberg off limits because she is “a kid.”

“Why do these trumpers think it is ok to go at a kid?” Cuomo tweeted, along with a link to a Washington Post article about U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin joking on Thursday that Thunberg can speak about corporate fossil fuel divestment “after she goes and studies economics in college.”

U.S. Treasury Secretary Mnuchin says climate activist Greta Thunberg should go study economics

The 16-year-old Swedish climate activist, who suffers from Asperger’s, became TIME’s 2019 Person of the Year after a September speech to the United Nations accusing world leaders of stealing her “dreams” and her “childhood” by not taking enough action on climate change. In December, she told reporters that world leaders not taking action should be put “against the wall,” later clarifying that the statement was not meant to condone violence.
