Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sprung to Greta Thunberg's defense after Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the teenage activist should study economics before lecturing the US on climate change.
"If you don't have an economics degree like Greta, they'll mock you for not having one," the Democratic congresswoman tweeted. "If you DO have one, as I do, they'll claim it's illegitimate."
"Haters gonna hate & deniers will deny," she added. "They will deny logic, science, and environmental consensus in order to protect oligarchy."
