While much of liberal Hollywood was approving of actress Meryl Streep‘s long, rambling political speech at Sunday night’s Golden Globes, the intended target of her rant, President-elect Donald Trump, was less than impressed.
Streep, the recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille award, took advantage of her acceptance speech to express angst over Trump being elected president, claiming he mocked a disabled reporter and intends to kick foreigners out of the country, among other things. She even managed to bring up President Barack Obama’s birth certificate.

But Trump dismissed it all with a wave of the hand, telling the New York Times Streep is “a Hillary lover” — the actress endorsed Hilary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention.
On a positive note, Trump proved he has better things to do with his time other than watching Hollywood award shows, telling The Times that he did not catch Streep’s remarks.
But he did say he was “not surprised” that he came under attack from “liberal movie people.”
Trump responded further bright and early Monday, taking to social media to once again deny he mocked the reporter in question. He also called Streep an “over-rated” actress and a “Hillary flunky.”
Just moments after her rant, Conservative commentator and radio host Larry Elder refuted Streep with the facts on Trump’s alleged “mocking,” as reported by BizPac Review. See the story in the tweet below.
