VIDEO: Mainstream Media Gushes Over DiCaprio/Thunberg “Dream Team”

Last Friday, Hollywood icon Leonardo DiCaprio shared a photo with 16 year old Climate activist Greta Thunberg.

Leonardo shared his admiration for the teen and wrote:

There are few times in human history where voices are amplified at such pivotal moments and in such transformational ways – but @GretaThunberg has become a leader of our time.

History will judge us for what we do today to help guarantee that future generations can enjoy the same livable planet that we have so clearly taken for granted. I hope that Greta’s message is a wake-up call to world leaders everywhere that the time for inaction is over.

It is because of Greta, and young activists everywhere that I am optimistic about what the future holds. It was an honor to spend time with Greta. She and I have made a commitment to support one another, in hopes of securing a brighter future for our planet. #FridaysforFuture #ClimateStrike @fridaysforfuture

Now, the mainstream media can not get enough of the “Dream Team.”

MRC reports 

On Saturday morning, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today show both celebrated climate alarmists Leonardo DiCaprio and Greta Thunberg as a “dream team” as anchors gushed over reports that the two recently met and pledged to work together to promote their agenda.

On ABC, after co-host Dan Harris alluded to a “celebrity encounter,” correspondent Janai Norman made her “dream team” description as she began:

Right, I mean, some might call this, like, a dream team of environmental activists. Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio is calling Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg a “leader of our time.” And he says the two of them have made a commitment to support one another. He posted a photo of him with Thunberg — look at this — on Friday as the two met during her tour of North America.

She then admitted that DiCaprio has come under scrutiny for helping to produce so much carbon emissions, which contradicts what he advocates for others:

DiCaprio has been outspoken, of course, about climate change, but he’s also been criticized for his use of private jets. Thunberg, in the meantime, is asking for help in finding an emissions-free way to get to the U.N.’s climate change meeting in December, and was supposed to take place in Chile, but has now been moved to Spain. The teen saying she traveled half around the world the wrong way. So really cool seeing the two of them teaming up.

Harris then conceded: “Yeah, it’s a conundrum, though. If you want to be an activist, as she is, and travel all over the place, how do you get there without emitting carbon?”

Over on NBC, Sheinelle Jones quoted DiCaprio praising Thunberg as the NBC co-host teased the story: “And ‘Leader for our time.’ Leonardo DiCaprio meets young climate activist Greta Thunberg in a photo that’s already been ‘liked’ nearly four million times. His impassioned plea for the future of the world.”
