Meryl Streep’s Courageous Speech vs. Donald Trump’s Craven Bullying Attack
At last night’s Golden Globe Awards, Meryl Streep was honored with a lifetime achievement award for her many years of great acting, and used part of her acceptance speech to direct some very pointed comments at Donald Trump.
“There was one performance this year that stunned me. It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good, there was nothing good about it, but it was effective and it did its job.
“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.”
She was referring to Trump’s appalling mockery of disabled New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski, who has a condition that effects the movement of muscles in his arms.
And like clockwork, Trump got on Twitter early this morning (I predicted 3 am; he tweeted at 3:29) and responded to Streep’s denunciation of his bullying, crude comments with another bullying, crude comment, and lied outright once again that he wasn’t mocking Kovaleski.
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 in order to make me look bad. Just more very dishonest media!
Anyone who watches the video of Trump doing his imitation of Kovaleski can clearly see for themselves that he’s lying — but that never stops Trump, because our president-elect is an insecure, thin-skinned, pathologically dishonest egomaniac who holds the rest of humanity in contempt.
