Donald Trump Jr. is jealous over a teenager.

TIME magazinehonored 16-year-old Greta Thunberg – the courageous climate change activist who called out global leaders at September's UN climate change summit for their avarice – as 2019 person of the year.

But Trump's eldest son minimized the recognition by calling it merely a "marketing gimmick" and admonished the publishing giant for their audacity in appointing Thunberg over the President.

On Wednesday morning, the 41-year-old trustee and executive Vice President of the Trump Organization did exactly what his father wouldn't hesitate to do.

He complained on Twitter.

"Time leaves out the Hong Kong Protesters fighting for their lives and freedoms to push a teen being used as a marketing gimmick. How dare you?"

Don Jr.'s closing "How dare you?" remark in his tweet is in reference to the phrase Thunberg passionately employed when confronting world leaders and accusing them of neglecting to reduce harmful carbon emissions, saying:

"This is all wrong. I shouldn't be up here. I should be back in school, on the other side of the ocean."
"Yet you have come to us young people for hope. How dare you? You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words."

Twitter put on its pouty-face for Don Jr. and ruthlessly mocked him.

The Hong Kong protestors expressed their rage over the now-suspended legislation allowing extraditions to mainland China and viewed the bill as a threat to the special administration region's "one country, two systems" form of governance.

People mocked Don Jr.'s cluelessness over the Hong Kong protests.

Don Jr. has five children with the ex-wife he cheated on.

Is he not concerned for their futures?

Thunberg was responsible for orchestrating the global climate strike on September 20, 2019, which became the largest climate demonstrations in human history with the attendance of 4 million participants.

The fearless teen is the youngest to be recognized in TIME's 92-year history.

Of course, Donald Trump was seething from being passed over for the honor and suggested the young activist work on her anger management issues.

Oh the irony.

Thunberg was among five finalists under consideration for the honor.

The others include anti-government protesters in Hong Kong, President Donald Trump, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the anonymous whistle blower who prompted Donald Trump's impeachment process after disclosing the President's quid pro quo phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
