Last night the Golden Globe Awards Ceremony took place, and as awards were given and the beautiful humans of Hollywood graced the carpet, Meryl Streep was the one who stole the spotlight in her acceptance speech that dumped on President-Elect Donald Trump. In a nearly 6-minute address, while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award, the actress denounced Trump’s campaign rhetoric and criticized him for mocking a disabled reporter. If you logged on Facebook anytime after 8 pm last night through the morning, there were probably at least 1,000 shares of her video on your news feed.
And as you can imagine, everyone has an opinion on Streep using her Hollywood platform to address a political issue. Trump, in expected fashion, could not let the comments go unaddressed, but had to respond using his most obnoxious and unpresidential form of communication, Twitter. I’m sure most of Ameria wishes Twitter would disable his account.
Trump’s tweet response included:
“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…..
Hillary flunky who lost big. For the 100th time, I never “mocked” a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him…….
“groveling” when he totally changed a 16-year-old story that he had written to make me look bad. Just more very dishonest media!
Donald Trump is going to tire himself over the next four years if he responds to every major criticism that is said him again. He seems to enjoy digging himself deeper and deeper into a hole. He’s going to exhaust himself. Get over it man. A favorite quote of mine is “a wise man once said nothing.” Take note Mr. Trump.
We do not think that Meryl Streep is overrated. She might be a nasty woman, in the best way possible.
