- Everybody loves Meryl Streep Golden Globes speech except POTUS-in-waiting
- She mocked his campaign of xenophobia
- Meryl Streep doesn't know me but attacked last night, he tweeted
It's unlikely his counter attack on Meryl Streep, much loved by all of America, is going to go down well - he described her as 'over-rated' and a 'Hillary (Clinton) flunky':
Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn't know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes. She is a.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 9, 2017
Hillary flunky who lost big. For the 100th time, I never "mocked" a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him.......— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 9, 2017
"groveling" when he totally changed a 16 year old story that he had written in order to make me look bad. Just more very dishonest media!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 9, 2017
At a campaign rally in November 2015, Donald Trump appeared to imitate journalist Serge Kovalski who suffers from a congenital condition that limits the movement of his arms. Mr Kovalski co-wrote a controversial article about the 9/11 attacks and in his rally, Mr Trump said, "Now, the poor guy - you ought to see the guy: 'Uh, I don't know what I said. I don't remember,'" while moving his arms in a manner that mimicked Mr Kovalski.
Meryl Streep was nominated for a Best Actress - Comedy/Musical award for her performance in and as Florence Foster Jenkins. She lost (to Emma Stone for La La Land) but it's safe to say she was the biggest winner this Golden Globes, with her speech going viral. Ms Streep ended her address by quoting late actress Carrie Fisher: "Take your broken heart. Make it into heart." Something tells us there will be plenty of quoting from her speech in the Trump years to come.
