Trump Is Fuming Over Meryl Streep's Powerful Golden Globes Speech

by
“People keep saying I intended to mock the reporter’s disability, as if Meryl Streep and others could read my mind, and I did no such thing.”

Meryl Streep took a jab at the president-elect, Donald Trump, highlighting his awfully negative nature and referring to his imitation of a disabled New York Times reporter at the Golden Globe awards Sunday night.

Predictably, the future commander-in-chief responded, calling the Hollywood star a “Hilary lover” and defended his vitriol.

Streep was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award at the 74th Golden Globes when she slammed Trump — without even naming him.

“It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter — someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back. It kind of broke my heart when I saw it and I still can’t get it out of my head because it wasn’t in a movie — it was real life," said the three-time Oscar winner. 

 

Trump predictably defended himself against any criticism.

In a brief telephone interview, the racist billionaire dismissed Streep as a “Hilary lover.”  He said he had not seen Streep’s remarks or other parts of the Globes ceremony, but added that he was “not surprised” that he had come under attack from “liberal movie people.”

“I was never mocking anyone,” he said. “I was calling into question a reporter who had gotten nervous because he had changed his story,” claiming that the reporter tried changing the story from a 9/11 attacks article in The Washington Post.

“People keep saying I intended to mock the reporter’s disability, as if Meryl Streep and others could read my mind, and I did no such thing,” remarked the media mogul in the interview.

“And remember, Meryl Streep introduced Hillary Clinton at her convention, and a lot of these people supported Hillary,” he added, referring to Streep’s remarks at the Democratic National Convention last summer on behalf of his opponent.

Later, Trump used his favorite social media platform, Twitter, to rant against Streep, calling her an overrated actress and accusing the media of being dishonest.

 

 

 

Meanwhile, celebrities and fans on social media are all in support of the “Iron Lady” star’s strong acceptance speech.
