Our very normal president, Donald Trump, seems to have approved one of the most cursed images ever to find its way to Twitter: It’s a Photoshop job depicting his head attached to the body of teen climate activist Greta Thunberg, who was just named TIME Person of the Year. Nothing says “I’m not jealous” like disseminating this monstrosity:
When it comes to keeping his promises, there's only one Person Of The Year:— Trump War Room (Text TRUMP to 88022) (@TrumpWarRoom) December 12, 2019
✅Record Job Creation
✅Historic Tax Cuts
✅#AmericaFirst Trade Deals
✅Building the Wall#TIMEPOY #PromisesMadePromisesKept pic.twitter.com/bEt9yqInqY
The picture was accompanied by a barely comprehensible string of Trumpisms, touting his “accomplishments” in the year 2019, like “building the wall” and “ISIS destroyed,” two easily disproved falsehoods.
“When it comes to keeping his promises, there’s only one Person Of The Year,” claims the tweet from Trump’s “war room”—the official Twitter account of his 2020 campaign. Trump already attacked Thunberg from his personal Twitter account, saying she should go to a “good old fashioned movie” instead of continuing to fight for climate justice. You gotta wonder if he requested this Photoshop image specifically or if someone showed it to him and he yelled, “Run with it! Tell them to text me!”
The whole thing is so absurd, it seems like Trump is actually parodying himself. It’s almost too much to process:
Imagine being so jealous and immature about a 16-year-old climate activist making Person of the Year that you ask your team to photoshop your face onto Greta’s body for her cover of Time Magazine. There’s no bottom for Trump. He wants attention by any means necessary. #BeBest pic.twitter.com/oiRnf98E5R— Eugene Gu, MD (@eugenegu) December 12, 2019
The president of the United States photoshopped his head onto a teenage girl’s body because he was jealous of her popularity is not a sentence I ever thought I’d type, yet here we are. pic.twitter.com/FCq5Bbiojx— The Volatile Mermaid (@OhNoSheTwitnt) December 12, 2019

Strangely enough, Trump is so jealous and angry about Greta Thunberg making Person of the Year that he had his team photoshop his face on her body on her Time Magazine cover. That’s how triggered he is by a 16-year-old climate activist getting the best of him. #BeBest pic.twitter.com/ubtr8nXjdQ— Yolanda Magana (@YolandaMagana12) December 12, 2019
What’s wild is that a few people actually predicted this would happen when Thunberg was announced as TIME’s Person of the Year:
Dear Trump,— Angela Belcamino (@AngelaBelcamino) December 11, 2019
Please don't Photoshop your head over Greta Thunberg's Time Magazine Person of the Year cover in a fit of jealousy and rage.
p.s. Climate Change is real. #TIMEPersonoftheYear2019
At this point, the president’s antics are so well-known to the public, they can predict exactly what will cause a meltdown and how it will manifest on Twitter. Right now, he’s tweeting wildly about the impeachment inquiry, but he’ll probably switch back to Thunberg again soon. The president is definitely jealous of a 16-year-old girl, but he’ll keep attacking her like it’s a “joke,” because he knows how to walk the line. For now..
