On Monday, Donald Trump propelled a searing Twitter assault on-screen character Meryl Streep, whom he called “over-appraised,” taking after her Lifetime Achievement Award acknowledgment discourse at the Golden Globes. Streep included Trump in her discourse on Sunday night, assaulting the president-elect over his pantomime of Serge Kovaleski, a New York Times columnist who experiences the inborn condition arthrogryposis. Trump spent a couple of minutes at the beginning of today typing up multiple tweets.
Trump’s tweets stated, “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!” Beforehand, Kovaleski had questioned Trump’s attestation that his detailing demonstrated Muslims in New Jersey freely giving praise to the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorists’ attacks.
Also, Trump gave a brief phone meeting to the Times, in which he stated: “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. And remember, Meryl Streep introduced Hillary Clinton at her convention, and a lot of these people supported Hillary.”
