Surprise, Surprise: Trump Slams ‘Overrated’ Meryl Streep After Globes Speech: ‘Hillary Flunky’

screen-shot-2017-01-09-at-7-54-03-amWell, for those of you who watched Meryl Streep‘s stirring speech at the Golden Globes Sunday night and thought I bet Donald Trump will take to Twitter to call her overrated, you’ve won! Predictably, that’s exactly what the President-elect did early Monday morning, just hours after Streep accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award and took down Trump in a blistering speech that quickly went viral.

Trump’s favorite schtick continued Monday, going after Streep as “overrated.”

He continued, addressing the longstanding controversy that he mocked a disabled reporter on the campaign trial last year, something that Streep invoked during her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes. Serge Kovaleski is the New York Times reporter with arthrogryposis who many believe was cruelly mocked by then Republican candidate for President, a claim he has vehemently denied. “When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose,” said Streep Sunday night.
