Donald Trump may be licking his wounds after getting owned by the undead Jeb Bush at the CNN GOP debate. While Trump collects his wits, we have some elegant words from Malala Yousafzai to consider. She’s a crafty opponent, but, more importantly, stands as the badass 18-year-old human rights and education advocate who survived three point-blank shots by the Taliban. Don’t mess with Malala.

This lovely young lady has some words for Trump. When asked by Jon Snow (not that Jon Snow, Game of Thrones fans) about the “wild things” Trump says about Muslims, she addressed his words as “tragic” and “full of hate”:

“If your intention is to stop terrorism, do not try to blame the whole population of Muslims for it because it cannot stop terrorists. That’s really tragic that you hear these comments which are full of hatred, full of this ideology of being discriminative towards others.”

Later, Malala was on hand at a Birmingham, England ceremony to honor 134 Pakistani children killed by the Taliban while attending school. She was joined by her father, Ziauddin, who added his take on Trump’s proposed policies: “It will be very unfair, very unjust that we associate 1.6 billion with a few terrorist organizations.”

Here’s a video clip of Malala’s full interview with Snow. She shows more poise and class than Trump has demonstrated in his entire lifetime.
