Trump Fires Back At Meryl Streep After Golden Globes Speech

Trump Responds To Meryl Streep’s Speech Saying He Is “Not Surprised He Is Being Slammed By Liberal Movie People”.

Donald Trump has hit back at Meryl Streep calling her a ‘Hillary lover’ after her Golden Globes acceptance speech took aim at the president-elect.

Streep, who was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award on Sunday, slammed Trump in front of a room of stunned Hollywood stars.

She said the moment he mocked and humiliated a disabled reporter ‘broke her heart’ as Streep labelled it the year’s most stunning performance.

Trump told the New York Times early Monday that he had not seen Streep’s speech or the Golden Globes coverage.
But he said he was ‘not surprised’ that he was being criticized by ‘liberal movie people’.

The president-elect said: ‘I was never mocking anyone. I was calling into question a reporter who had gotten nervous because he had changed his story.

‘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.’

Streep, who spoke at the Democratic National Convention in support of Clinton last year, never mentioned Trump by name during her speech.

The president-elect came under fire in 2015 for mocking New York Times investigative reporter Serge Kovaleski by impersonating the journalist’s physical handicap. It was an incident replayed frequently in campaign advertising last year.
