>> Everybody good?>> President-elect Donald Trump Monday firing back at actress Meryl Streep with a three tweet salvo. Responding to her Golden Globes speech for a lifetime achievement Sunday night, in which she referred to Trump's now-infamous mocking of a disabled reporter as heartbreaking and showcasing what she called an instinct to humiliate.
>> Someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back.>> Trump lashing out at Streep the most Oscar and Golden Globe nominated actor of all time. Calling her one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood and continuing, she is a Hillary flunky who lost big.
For the 100th time, I never "mocked" a disable 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. As a refresher, reporter Serge Kovaleski, who suffers from a congenital joint condition, wrote a Washington Post piece in 2001 which said authorities in New Jersey detained, quote, a number of people, allegedly seen celebrating after the 9/11 attacks.
On the campaign trail Trump used the article to defend his widely disputed claim that quote, thousands of Muslims celebrated after the attack.>> And by the way, this was right after September 11.>> The Golden Globes, an event put on by the Hollywood Foreign Press, also prompting Streep to say quote, all of us in this room belong to the most vilified segments in American society right now, Hollywood, foreigners, and the press.
The actress encouraging the media to be vigilant in holding powerful people accountable for their words and actions.
