However other Republican pundits were far harsher. Calling Thunberg who suffers from Asperger’s syndrome, mentally ill.
Republicans were slammed after what many saw as an attack on a child. Despite the backlash, Republicans refused to apologize.
The child activist’s response to the attacks: ” I don’t honestly understand why adults would spend time threatening teenagers and children for promoting science when they could do something good instead. I guess they must simply feel threatened by us. But don’t waste your time giving them more attention. The world is waking up. Whether they like it or not. See you in these streets”
