SATIRE: Spanish TV personality Frank Cuesta impersonating Greta Thunberg in a sketch

It comes as the teen has been on the end of criticism from Spanish TV personality, Frank Cuesta.

The former tennis player and naturalist impersonated the activist in a wig and a green sack for an online sketch.

In a video he says: “You are not going to see this bug picking up shit, or cleaning, or investigating, or studying to help climate change.

“She will always be in boats like those that do not use petrol, but with a boat at her side for protection, won’t she? And a helicopter so nothing happens when she crosses the Atlantic.”
