Greta Thunberg Becomes TIME’s Person of the Year | The Daily Show

Time magazine’s Person of the
Year. It’s an annual message to the
world’s other 7.7 billion people that you suck. And this year’s honoree
is an obvious choice. This was just announced
moments ago. The Time Person of the Year is 16-year-old climate change
activist Greta Thunberg. -(cheering and applause) -You
remember when the Swedish teen took on U.N. world leaders -at the Climate Change Summit.
-Mm-hmm. I mean, 16 years old.
Congratulations to her. She had a passionate plea
garnering a lot of attention. And for way too long, the politicians
and the people in power have gotten away
with not doing anything at all to fight the climate crisis
and the ecological crisis. But we will make sure that they will not get away
with it any longer. (cheering and applause) Yeah. Greta Thunberg has been named Time magazine’s
Person of the Year. And she must have been
so excited when they told her. It was like,
“Great news, Geta– Greta. “We’re gonna cut down
a million trees and print your face on them!” She’s like, “Uh…”
“And then we’re gonna put them on airplanes and send them
all over the world!” For real though, it’s so cool
to be named Person of the Year while you’re still
in high school. Right? All the other kids are like,
“Oh, I was voted Most Likely to Succeed,” and Greta’s slapping
her magazine, like, “I already succeeded, bitch.” Plus, you realize now
she doesn’t have to fill out a college application. Yeah. She can just show them this. Although it is gonna be awkward
when she sends it to Harvard, and they’re like,
“Wait a second, Aunt Becky told us her daughter
was Person of the Year.”
