President Trump's getting one-upped in his favorite arena -- Twitter -- by Greta Thunberg, or as he refers to her ... that kid with the "anger management problem."
The Prez took a pretty condescending shot Thursday morning at Time's Person of the Year. His reaction to her getting the honor ... "So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend!"
And, for the coup de grace, he added, "Chill Greta, Chill!"
Well, the 16-year-old champion of the environment took Trump's advice ... in the most facetious way possible.
She straight-up jacked his tweet and slapped it in her Twitter bio, which now reads ... "A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend."
As a loud-mouthed, no respect-having teenager might say ... he started it!!!
We got Joey Crack in NYC Tuesday and asked for the man himself to weigh in on how this war of words is unfolding between NC and Slim Shady. After all, he did let Em get on his track, "Lord Above," and throw the initial barbs about Nick's baby mama, Mariah Carey.
In his feature, Eminem says he tried warning Nick about Mariah before the "Wild 'N Out" host "got his jewels clipped" and goes on to say Nick is "p***y whipped" ... not to mention calling him out by name. It all dates back to a decade-old beef Em seemed eager to revive.
Now, back to Joe ... the guy actually tried claiming innocence with us, saying he's nothing more than a bystander here who's worked with and respects both guys. FJ tells us he bears no responsibility -- even though it was his song that kicked this off.
1:47 PM PT -- Em's backup has just arrived ... his boy, Obie Trice, just released his own Nick Cannon diss track with "Spanky Hayes." Have at it ...
12:37 PM PT -- Nick's ripping a page outta Drake's playbook going back-to-back ... with another diss track aimed at Eminem. The latest one dropped Tuesday and it's dubbed "Pray For Him." It's crazy ... in the track -- featuring The Black Squad -- someone in Nick's crew raps why Juice WRLD had to die instead of Em. Damn.
Gotta hand it to Nick ... he pulled out every weapon in his arsenal for this one -- including dragging Eminem's ex-wife and daughter into his verses, and prison phone calls with Suge Knight talking smack about Em.
Suge suggests all of Detroit should give Eminem 24 hours to respond to Nick's diss track or kick him out of town. Again, a deeply personal shot against the "8 Mile" rapper.
On "The Invitation" -- which dropped Monday night -- Nick takes a homophobic shot at Em, rapping, "I heard your chauffeur got a video of you suckin' a c**k."
That did get Em to respond, on Twitter at least, where he demanded an apology ... from "Nicholas." It's a very Em response, and you can almost hear the birth of HIS response diss track.
This whole new beef is over the old Mariah beef that was reheated last week when Em rapped on a Fat Joe track about Mariah neutering Nick, and added, "I let her chop my balls off too before I lose to you, Nick."
Part of Nick's response in "The Invitation" goes ..."My baby mama killed you off a decade ago, You're still crying about it bitch, now who really the ho?"
Since last week, Nick's been trying -- almost daily -- to get Eminem to come on his MTV show, "Wild 'N Out," to settle the feud. Nick's diss track is just the latest, albeit well-produced, attempt to snare Em.
Whether or not Marshall does Nick's TV show, it seems certain he'll fire back with a track. Of course, 50 Cent's biased in this feud, but he more than hinted ... Nick should NOT want smoke with Em.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
As far as who's winning this war right now? The internet seems to think it's Em, since #ripnickcannon was trending Tuesday morning.
Careful what you wish for?

Chrishell Stause is making the next big move in her divorce from "This Is Us" star Justin Hartley ... by packing up her stuff and leaving their home.
The "Selling Sunset" star was seen talking to movers at her L.A. residence Wednesday, and it looks like she's staying positive through the rough situation. A moving truck was also parked in front of the house she's shared with her recently estranged husband.
We broke the story ... Chrishell filed her response to Justin's divorce petition, and strongly suggests she was totally blindsided by it. According to the docs, she lists their separation date as Nov. 22, 2019 -- the day Justin filed for divorce -- but he claims they separated on July 8, 2019.
As we've pointed out ... that's a bit odd, considering the couple was seen out together multiple times after that date, including a week before his divorce filing.
The separation date isn't the only thing the 2 don't agree on -- Chrishell wants Justin to pay spousal support and her attorney's fees ... but he wants the opposite.
Chrishell also took a thinly veiled shot at Justin on social media by sharing a quote about it being difficult to watch people change, and now ... she's changing her address.
9:19 AM PT -- Trudeau's addressed the video, and admits he and the other world leaders were discussing Trump's unscheduled press conference ... which he says was "certainly notable."
As for the "jaws dropped to the floor" comment ... the Canadian PM says it was a reference to the surprise announcement that the next G7 Summit will be held at Camp David.
For President Trump, the gloves are off with Justin Trudeau after the Canadian Prime Minister was caught talking smack about Trump during a NATO Summit event.
The incriminating vid plays like a "Mean Girls" scene, but at Buckingham Palace instead of a school cafeteria. Trudeau, British PM Boris Johnson, French Prez Emmanuel Macron and others seemed to be chatting Tuesday night about Trump's impromptu 40-minute news conference earlier in the day.
To be honest, it seemed more catty than chatty, and Trudeau went on to say Trump's team's "jaws dropped to the floor."
Of course, once Trump got wind of that convo, he went in on Trudeau, calling him "two-faced." He also floated the theory Canada's PM was just being pissy because of a NATO funding dispute.
Trump says he called out Trudeau for not paying 2 percent of Canada gross domestic product into NATO's defense spending.
He tried to play it cool, adding, "[Trudeau]'s a nice guy. I find him to be a very nice guy" -- but ya know this beef is just heating up.
The NATO Summit just turned into "Melrose Place."

Sources connected to the situation tell TMZ ... Khloe is genuinely confused by Caitlyn's recent claim they haven't talked in "five, six years" and their current relationship is sour. We're told Khloe refutes that notion on several fronts -- starting with the numbers.
You'll recall ... she told her castmates on the British reality show "I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!" she hadn't "really talked" to Khloe in a long time since coming out.
Caitlyn publicly came out as transgender in 2015 -- and we're told the Kardashian side of her family found out only shortly before then. So, the five or six-year claim just doesn't add up.
What's more ... our sources tell us Khloe was completely supportive of Caitlyn's transition at the time, and things only got bitter between them when Caitlyn took shots at Kris in her memoir -- something we're told none of the Kardashian sisters appreciated.
Khloe was also there for Caitlyn when she accepted her ESPY award and the two have been nothing but pleasant at family holiday parties and birthdays.
However, we're told Khloe feels things have gotten better between them, and she rejects the notion they're still beefing. Take, for example, Caitlyn's recent 70th birthday.
While Khloe wasn't there, she did have a legit excuse -- she was working -- and even sent a bouquet of roses as a gift. We're told she texted Caitlyn as well to wish her a happy bday.
Bottom line ... there's no bad blood from Khloe's side, she loves Caitlyn, and our sources say she's confused by Caitlyn's accusation there's tension.
It always gets ugly between the 6 God and Embiid when Philly plays the Toronto Raptors ... with Drizzy and the All-Star trading jabs at any opportunity.
Most recently, Drake mocked Embiid for going scoreless last week -- clapping in Embiid's face and thanking him for racking up a goose egg on the score sheet.
TMZ Sports spoke with Rubin outside Madison Square Garden on Friday about the beef ... and he says while it looks legit on paper, it's all love when the cameras are off.
"It's all fun, they're good friends off the court," the billionaire businessman tells us.
As for whether Rubin is a fan of the Raptors ambassador ... well, you'll have to watch the clip and hear for yourself.
10:07 AM PT -- 11/30 -- Kid's now offering some explanation for his Oprah rage. He says it all started when he almost went on her show, until her producers asked him to "write down 5 reasons why I loved her."
The rest is history ... a 4-letter-word laced history.
The country rocker went on a wild tirade last week at his own Honky Tonk bar in Nashville -- which apparently overserved their boss, 'cause the man was clearly intoxicated as he blasted O from the stage ... saying, "F*** Oprah!" and other vulgarities we won't repeat.
Check out the video, 'cause it's truly an ugly sight to behold. He lays into Oprah repeatedly and then goes on to attack Joy Behar and Kathie Lee Gifford. We don't know why he might've gone after Kathy, but he and Joy had beef last year -- he even called her a bitch on TV.
As far as O goes ... he's noted in past interviews that he just doesn't like her, period. No clear reason as to why, though. Adding insult to injury, KR consistently explains that just because he hates these folks -- especially Oprah -- that doesn't make him racist. Some members of the crowd disagreed.
Eventually, Kid -- who's a staunch Trump supporter, BTW -- appeared to be so hammered ... he had to be helped off stage by security. Not a good look at all.

The heated beef over Mac's good name started when GoldLink -- who toured with Mac on the GO:OD AM tour -- posted what he claimed was a tribute, but it obviously rubbed Anderson and many Mac fans the wrong way.
GoldLink claims he played one of his albums for Mac while they were on the road, and then Mac turned around and used it as the "blueprint" for his next record, "Divine Feminine."
Anderson flipped his lid when he saw GoldLink's post and immediately called him out for the copycat accusation, saying ... "You ain't the first to make an album inspired by a relationship ... but you are the first to disrespect my friend who is no longer here for absolutely no reason and I can't stand for that."
Anderson -- who's featured on songs with both Mac and GoldLink -- added, "I'm not a tough guy, I'm not about negativity, but this bugged me bad bro." He also ripped GoldLink for essentially backstabbing Mac, who "brought your ass on tour and opened up his fan base to you when you had nothing and this the type of appreciation you give?"
Interestingly, Anderson has since deleted his lengthy rant against GoldLink. Maybe that's because -- as he said -- he's not about negativity ... but his defense of Mac was crystal clear.
8:16 PM PT -- Taylor just won Artist of the Year, and said the last year has had some of the best and hardest times of her life. While she never mentioned Scooter or Big Machine directly, it's hard to imagine she wasn't referring to the situation.
It's also worth mentioning that Taylor's outfit at the beginning of her performance had the names of her old albums ... a not-so-subtle dig at Braun.
Taylor sang most of her biggest hits, including "Love Story," "I Knew You Were Trouble" and "Shake it Off." What's interesting ... she didn't sing "Bad Blood," or "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" ... the latter could be a metaphor for her relationship with Big Machine, so not singing it was interesting. She opened the set with her new song, "The Man."
Swift got huge applause and thanked just about everyone in her life, but no mention about her raging dispute with BM and Braun.
Our sources tell us ... Taylor and/or her team have not met with Scooter and/or reps from Big Machine ... this after Scooter's overture Friday morning. We're told there are no plans to meet.
Damon Dash wasn't done getting stuff off his chest after his deposition ... and took the opportunity to spell out all the ways he thinks the lawsuit filed against him is BS.
We got the Roc-A-Fella cofounder the day after he sat for a 50-minute depo in the case, and after he learned the court hit him with sanctions because of his "repeated disregard of court orders and highly inappropriate conduct."
Dame tells us he specifically got chastised for making fun of the plaintiff's attorney, Christopher Brown ... whom he calls a "cornball." That insult's pretty tame compared to what Dash said to Brown in his depo.
We broke the story ... Damon blasted the lawyer for being a "culture vulture" and said he was disgusted by him. He added that Brown will never be a lawyer again and said, "I'm just giving you rope to hang yourself."
Dash has been ordered to pay all costs and fees from the depo that were incurred by the opposing side because of his behavior.
Regardless ... Dame's not backing down from laying out his case in the suit. He tells us the director and producers of the film, "Dear Frank," actually stole his movie and are spinning a web of lies to rob him of "a masterpiece."
Scooter Braun says Taylor Swift's attacks on him and the Big Machine Records label have thrown his entire family into extreme peril, and the death threats have become so intense he's going public, pleading with Taylor to sit down with him and resolve their conflict.
Scooter posted his statement in the middle of the night after something clearly happened. He noted there have been numerous death threats directed at his family, but something even more ominous and imminent caused him to break his silence ... "I came home tonight to find my wife had received a phone call threatening the safety of our children .."
He posted one threat, which is chilling ..."Hi, why dont you just die withyour children??? I will buy a gun tmr and them shoot you allin the head."
Scooter then addresses Taylor directly, saying, "I assume this was not your intention but it is important that you understand that your words carry a tremendous amount of weight and that your message can be interpreted by some in different ways."
He goes on to extend an olive branch, asking Taylor to sit down, wherever she wants, and resolve their beef. He says he and Big Machine never tried to block her from singing anything at Sunday's AMAs, but then he said this ... "While I am frustrated with your accusations and respectfully disagree with many of your statements, it is important that I am clear -- no artist should ever feel cornered or bullied. I have spent my entire career in service of creatives and artists, never the other way around."
But, finally, there's something of a parting shot ... "Many have told me that a meeting will never happen as this is not about truth or resolution but instead a narrative for you. I am hopeful this is not the case."
Taylor Swift's battle with her old record label, Big Machine, over her performance at the AMAs should be over, but it's not, and the big question ... why is she still reluctant to sing her old songs?
Taylor has been angry at Big Machine and Scooter Braun over ownership of the masters of her first 6 albums. She claimed last week BM was withholding permission for her to sing her old hits, but the label fired back saying she can perform anything she wants during a live broadcast.
Our Taylor sources said that wasn't enough because Dick Clark Productions -- which produces the AMAs and rebroadcasts/repurposes the show -- has to get permission from BM. Then on Monday, BM announced it worked out a licensing deal with Dick Clark Productions so Taylor could sing all her old songs.
Taylor's people then complained that there couldn't be an agreement without notifying her camp in writing of the licensing agreement. That was done Monday, so all should be good. But, it's not.
Now, we're told Taylor may not have enough time to incorporate the old songs in her performance, because such rehearsals take at least a month. Here's the issue ... she told her fans last Thursday she had been planning to perform her old songs, so if she was planning to, you would think she would have rehearsed with them.
On top of that, we're told Taylor wasn't rehearsing in L.A. this past weekend ... she was at her apartment in London so it would seem she's locked and loaded.
So the question ... will you hear "Shake It Off" at the AMAs? The jury is out, but we're not betting on it.
1:56 PM PT -- Tom Brady -- who "liked" AB's post on Instagram ... was just asked about the apology during a media availability on Thursday ... and it got awkward.
"I didn't put much thought into it. But ... yeah, It's his choice and good for him," Brady said before immediately walking off stage.
At least Brady sorta answered the question ... Bill Belichick was tight-lipped per usual when he was asked earlier in the day, saying, "Every week you guys ask me about players that aren’t on the team and every week it’s the same answer."
"Mr.Kraft I apologize sincerely to you and your organization," Brown wrote.
"All I wanted to be was an asset to the organization; sorry for the bad media and the drama ! Thank you sincerely AB."
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
"Kraft got caught in the parlor AB speculations fired different strokes different folks clearly," Brown tweeted.
Brown later deleted the post -- but the damage had already been done.
So, why the apology? That's obvious ... Brown is desperate to get back in the NFL but no team is willing to take a chance on him right now for several reasons.
First, the NFL is currently investigating him over sexual assault allegations included in a lawsuit filed against him earlier this year.
Second, AB not only had a bad breakup with the Pats, but he burned the bridge with the Raiders all the way down too ... essentially forcing the team to cut him back in August when he illegally recorded a phone call with coach Jon Gruden and posted it on YouTube.
He also got into an altercation with Raiders GM Mike Mayock.
The Seattle Seahawks reportedly looked into signing Brown a few weeks ago but ultimately decided to go a different direction.
Will the apology pay off for Brown now? Maybe ... but don't hold your breath.
One more thing ... Tom Brady and AB have still been friendly on social media even after he was cut. And, with Brady recently criticizing the Patriots offense, it's possible the QB is lobbying to bring AB back.

Sources tell TMZ that Swifties of all ages have been threatening to kill Scooter and other Big Machine staffers -- including big wig Scott Borchetta -- since T-Swift claimed they were holding her back from performing old hits at the upcoming AMAs.
We're told death threats have been sent across multiple mediums -- over social media, over text and through emails.
Our sources say Scooter's wife and young children have been mentioned as targets. Even Scooter's Ithaca Holdings office in Nashville had to be shut down last week because of some of the more intense threats ... and cops have been notified.
BTW, our sources tell us these aren't just loud-mouthed kids coming at the Big Machine crew -- adults are also chiming in and making threats on their lives ... clearly it's serious.
As we reported ... Big Machine announced Monday that they were giving TS the green light to perform all her old tracks -- which are now in their control --- on the AMAs broadcast, as well as any re-broadcast of that performance. Taylor hasn't commented on the news yet.
Sources connected to the supermodel tell TMZ ... Bella actually went out of her way to reach out to Selena this weekend to squash any potential beef. We say potential, because the Internet (yes, EVERYONE on the web) thought Bella had shaded the singer. 'Memba ... they're both exes of The Weeknd.
You see, what had happened was ... Bella posted this pic of herself, and Selena commented, "Stunning." Harmless, right? Well, Bella later deleted that post, but fans screen grabbed, reposted and insinuated Bella first ignored Selena (by not following her back) ... and then deleted the post out of spite.
Selena caught wind of this and commented on the fan page that reposted ... "That sucks," adding a sad face emoji for good measure.
We'll cut to the chase here -- the drama's over. Our sources say the former friends-turned-foes had a chat after the big deletion. We're told Bella told Selena it was never about taking a shot, the model simply deleted because she didn't like the pic.
Since then, Selena followed Bella again ... but as of Monday, it doesn't look like Bella has returned the favor. Not that we're trying to stir anything up.
Regardless, we're told there's no bad blood.
