Conservatives continue to unleash fury on Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old Swedish climate activist, following her emotional speech at the United Nations Climate Action Summit on Monday. Now, they have a therapeutic outlet for all that anger.
ABC 730, an Australian affiliate station, created a satirical video of a hotline “for adults angry at child.” Comedians Mark Humphries and Evan Williams released an infomercial for their “Greta Thunberg Helpline.”

The hotline provides a place of release for adults who “get irrationally angry at a Swedish girl who wants to save the planet,” the video says.
“So before you go full CAPS LOCK in an article comment section, let our expert counselors assess your situation,” the video says.
One example of the adult anger they are referencing was seen on Fox News in which pundit Michael Knowles referred to the young activist as “mentally ill.”

President Donald Trump also tried to troll Thunberg on Twitter. “She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!” he tweeted.
She responded by changing her Twitter bio to “a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future.”

She even retweeted the “Greta Thunberg Helpline” video.
“Hang in there! Help is available,” Thunberg wrote.

Thunberg continues her climate change relief tour in Montreal on Thursday.
Climate change deniers are left with a 1-800 number. “It’s OK, we understand that children acting like adults, can make adults act like children,” the helpline says.
