Meryl Streep’s speech on the Golden Globes did not shock Donald Trump

Donald Trump, in a brief over the phone, said he had not seen Meryl Streep’s comments or different parts of the Golden Globes ceremony, which were aired on NBC, yet he included that he wasn’t “surprised” that he had gone under assault from “liberal movie people.” The award ceremony was the last prominent Hollywood occasion, before Trump’s introduction on Jan. 20, an exchange of leadership that numerous in media outlets have lamented.

While hostile to Trump, remarks at the Globes were generally limited. Streep, a standout amongst the most straightforward progressives in the film world, mounted an effective scrutinize of Trump’s capacities as an entertainer, complimenting circuitously a style of ability to entertain that she called everything except deceptive.

Streep said in her speech, “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 made its intended audience laugh, and show their teeth. It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter,” she stated, alluding to a discourse by Mr. Trump in 2015 when he shivered and thrashed his arms, appearing to ridicule an impaired columnist for The New York Times.

“It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can’t get it out of my head, because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life.”

Trump, as he has done commonly some time recently, became warmed in the meeting as he straight denied that he had planned to ridicule the Times columnist, Serge F. Kovaleski. Later Monday morning, Trump, in a progression of tweets, called Streep “one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood… A Hillary flunky who lost big.” He additionally emphasized his contention that he had not taunted the journalist, “but simply showed him ‘groveling.’”
