Left infuriated after Mnuchin notes Greta Thunberg doesn’t have an education


CORRECTION: Great’s not a dropout. Nine years are enough in Sweden and she’s done that with 14 As and some Bs. We aren’t sure how that qualifies her for the task she’s undertaken, but the left seems to think it does.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin was insulted by the media and social media after dismissing Greta Thunberg’s comments based on her lack of education. He was joking, but he was slammed and trended on Twitter for it.

At a press briefing at the World Economic Forum in the Swiss town of Davos, Mnuchin dismissed Thunberg’s suggestion that governments and companies need to cut back dramatically on their use of fossil fuels.

When asked how that would affect the U.S. economic model, Mnuchin asked, ‘Who is she?”

“Is she the chief economist or who is she? I’m confused,” Mnuchin said, adding that it was “a joke.”

“After she goes and studies economics in college, she can come back and explain that to us,” the former Goldman Sachs executive, who has an economics degree from Yale University, added.

ABC News wrote sarcastically, “As one of the executive producers of the last Mad Max movie, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin might have been interested in the apocalyptic climate warnings of Greta Thunberg. Instead, he took a personal swipe at the 17-year-old, saying she was in no position to give advice on climate change because she hasn’t been to college yet.”

Not only hasn’t she been to college yet, but she’s also a high school dropout. In addition, the now-17-year old has developmental and emotional disorders. Why is she an expert?

Thunberg doesn’t see the need for education on the subject to say what she is saying. That actually proves Munchin’s point.

We are not allowed to criticize their heroes, no matter how flawed they are.


She was Time’s person of the year but that is ridiculous.

What he said is not hateful but you can’t tell illogical AOC that.


Speaking with CNBC later, Mnuchin explained there are other important issues including health and the spread of disease as well as nuclear proliferation have to be considered along with the climate emergency.

“Nothing against the climate issue,” he said. “But I think the youth needs to understand, the climate is one issue that needs to be put in context with lots of other things,” he said, after being asked about his remarks on Thunberg needing to further her education.

He should have also mentioned that turning the economy over to socialist Democrats won’t do a thing for the climate.



  1. Well, if she is uneducated what does she know about the climate really. Just what everyone else knows. That the climate is unpredictable. But she has one thing going for her that no one else has, she is being paid to spout her climate comments. If she isn’t being paid how does she manage to get around. Just turned 17, drops out of school and has no job and sorry to say a health problem. Dad might help out somewhat but to support where she travels and her expenses. Really?? Does no one care she is being used. Yeah, this is the world today for you. Corruption everywhere.

    • It has been stated Greta has Asperger’s a spectrum of Autism. Her social skills are limited but her concentration in a particular subject or field is concentrated to the point of obsession. Chances are she can not relate to her fellow students or anyone who does not share her interest. Research it if interested. She is not an expert in climatology but is parroting what she has read on the subject and takes it as Gospel truth.One problems is she has only read and heard one sided opinions and theories Her parents have allowed her to be put in the lime light there by placing her mental and emotional heath in jeopardy which is already unstable. What she likely needs is a private tutor in a less exposed setting as opposed to being put on display exposing her to outlandish praise as some type of guru or ridiculed as a freak of nature. That’s far too much pressure on any teenager let alone one with a serious mental and emotional genetic disease. Couple that with arrogant, abrasive attitude and a perpetual snarl. it’s understandable that people find her obnoxious and offensive. Blame it on her overtly over compensating, ego driven parents pushing her beyond her limits.

  2. Greta has learning disabilities, but the left relies on her for their scientific information on climate change? “The sky is falling!”

  3. She and mommy and daddy moved to LA, after little Greta first came on the scene. She is listed as an actress on IMDB. Yes she is the breadwinner and I assume Hellywood is picking up the tab;)

    • Well, that figgers. Failed actors, both parents, having discovered they have a mentally ill daughter capable of recalling entire articles on a single subject, are playing it to the max. With hollyweird and the left supporting the whole bunch, its a gravy train made for the lazy entitled family. They fit in with the whole scene of la-la land.
      What they gonna do when the new wears off? I see “homeless” in their future.
      Just sayin’.
