Donald Trump Meryl Streep

Donald Trump Bashes Meryl Streep as 'Overrated' in Post-Globes Tirade

This just in: Donald Trump was not a fan of Meryl Streep’s Golden Globe acceptance speech

In a series of early-morning tweets, the president-elect derided the Oscar-winning acting legend as “one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood” and “a Hillary flunky who lost big.”

While accepting the Hollywood Foreign Press’ Cecile B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement on Sunday, Streep recalled Trump’s 2015 mocking of reporter Serge Kovaleski, who suffers from a chronic condition that affects his joints. “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,” Streep said. “And this instinct, to humiliate when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life. Because it kinda gives permission for other people to do the same thing.”

    LOL to anyone who voted for this man
    you are not getting a leader
    you are getting a Twitter personality with a personality disorder

  2. Angela says:

    But remember, it’s only the left that’s overly sensitive and whiny.
    .
    Doesn’t he have some intelligence briefings he should be focusing on? A presidency he should be preparing for? Good lord, Trump, grow up already.

    • B says:

      Ditto. Please deactivate his tweeter account already since he’s more concerned with that than doing anything else.

    • SMD says:

      He doesn’t need any intelligence briefings because they are all repetitive anyway.

      • A fan of TV says:

        He said the same thing about the bank statements showing his business was failing before filling bankruptcy each time. If only he’d paid attention he could have saved jobs and paid his contractors!

        • Temperance says:

          Um, collapsing the business is part of the con. He extracts all the cash from the investors into his own accounts, and then collapses the business and walks away.

          • A fan of TV says:

            Exactly. I know this. His fool supporters don’t realize this cronyism is the problem with their economy. Sad!

    • Meghan says:

      Perfectly said Angela!!

  3. Lois says:

    Do. Your. Job.

    Stop commenting on people criticising you, DO YOUR BLOODY JOB.

    • Lawrence E Fogarty says:

      he is already doing his job. Not President yet but has major corporations deciding to expand here in the USA and attracting foreign investors to build here.
      Nor President yet but let Rahm know that if they can’t stop the Killing Fields of Chicago the Federal govt will step in and help. (Update Police Chief of Chicago publicly stated they need help.)

      Obama has been President for 8 years spent 96 million on vacations and couldn’t bother even to do a flyover of the Chicago Killing Fields and at last wave on his way to Hawaii.

      and trump is a danger??? You’re kidding right ??!!!

      • A fan of TV says:

        It is no surprise that he has refrained from telling his voters how much they will be on the hook to pay for these corporations staying. Carrier said they stayed because of increased subsidies. This means what they won’t be paying in taxes for staying and not going will be covered by the hard-working people of Indiana and the rest of the US. This is the same tactic of previous admin you hate, who focused on tech sector instead. Details get in the way of blind rage, I know, and I’m aware youll go on believing what you want, but facts do not support the notion he’s doing more, full stop.

      • Pedro says:

        Obama created 11 million jobs, saved the economy that collapsed under Bush, killed Bin Laden, mostly took the US out of Iraq, and no 9/11 happened under him.

      • Temperance says:

        Do you actually belive that nonsense?

      • A fan of TV says:

        Are you even allow to justify how and why flying over Chicago would have solved the problem? Cuz sounds to me, again, like someone feeding you talking points that are designed to inflame misplaced outrage and not actually offer a solution to a prob you can blame on someone else. Guess who, by your own logic, will now fail to fix Chicago’s problems? Yes, Trump.

      • YestoKylie says:

        96 Million on vacations??? Hahaha…I’m quite sure you are smart enough to know this is bogus

  4. Yoko says:

    4 years of this nonsense coming up. God help us.

  5. Sara says:

    It amazes me that no one on his staff has taken his twitter account away from him.

    • Sally McLinn says:

      They tried to take the account away. He wouldn’t let them, and has let it be known this is how he’s going to communicate with the press and the American people.

    • Rob says:

      They wouldn’t and should not, it’s the only way you are going to get his side of the story unfiltered. He won, because he played it smart and went in as an underdog, but with teeth. And for those in denial about Hillarys Russian connection, remember the reset I beg. That uranium deal was small beans compared to the defense secrets they got due to her! It was a “partnership” in which we got squat and they got a ton of tech.

      • DL says:

        His side of the story, “unfiltered”? Unfiltered by facts and truth, you mean. Because I have no interest in reading his false-propaganda-by-Tweet.

      • Sara says:

        He has spent his time bashing ratings of the Apprentice, Hamilton, Meryl Streep, and I’m sure countless others that I’m not remembering. If he was using Twitter to promote policy or talk about his campaign promises, it’d be one thing. But he’s not. If he wants to win the people’s respect, this is not the way to do it.

      • Mary says:

        Sorry that doesn’t fly. You do realize that several, even those who voted for him, do not do twitter. Especially the old generation. Yes he can tweet his fingers to the bones but cannot complain when the press covers his insanity. He tweets for one reason only he doesn’t have to have an answer for the garbage that comes out. Hillary is out of the picture but trump love affair with putin is very much alive and well. Well his unfiltered tirades are going to get us killed or the very least a war, oh but I forgot that is the Republican way.

    • steve says:

      he isn’t a child. despite acting like one they can’t just take his twitter away and put him in timout or send him to his room

  6. Brad says:

    Stories like this are why he does it. Now everyone is talking about Meryl Streep instead of the confirmation hearings. Misdirection. He tricks you into forgetting about the important stuff.

  7. jj says:

    All politicians get criticized all the time. You don’t like what someone is saying about you? Prove them wrong by excelling at your job, don’t whine about it on Twitter.

  8. Pat says:

    The soon to be Twit In-Chief, should realize, if he even had a brain, that Meryl Streep has more class in her little finger then he has in that entire Orange bloated body.

  9. TJ says:

    She gives an eloquent, thoughtful, intelligent speech and he resorts to childish name calling. Why must he always bring up Hillary? Meryl never mentioned her or the results. The election is over, dismissing criticism of him and his actions as being butthurt by the election results and being a Hillary lover cannot fly any longer. And trying to deny that he mocked the reporter. Perhaps it wasn’t his conscious intention to do it (and I realize I am reaching here) but the body language paints a different picture. Perception is huge. Own it and apologize, don’t deny it and belittle when called out.

  10. xomylifexo says:

    OMG this man is a child.

    • Mary says:

      This is what happens when parents don’t teach their children to be responsible for their actions. You are a spoil rotten brat who grows up to be a bigger brat.

  11. “This just in…” Gave me the best chuckle of the day. Thanks.

    Reasons why Meryl Streep’s speech was brilliant:

    1) She never used his name.

    2) That IMAGE of him mocking the reporter is imbedded in everyone’s mind.

    3) Her speech reached MILLIONS at home and around the globe.

    She needs to give another speech at the Oscars. Larger audience.

  12. funnibone31 says:

    Everything is overrated to Trump. Not surprising.

    • Mary says:

      That is the green eye monster talking because he is and never will be that popular period. Wasn’t in being a TV reality star and won’t be as President.

  13. datdudemurphy says:

    He’s not going to stop. Four more years of him reacting, every time he is talked about.
    He won’t stop after he leaves office either.
    This is going to continue for the rest of his life.

    • MMD says:

      I don’t wish ill will on anyone but once he gets out of office, can someone please put a muzzle on him and put mittens on him so he can’t tweet.

  14. Butch says:

    As I posted on the other thread about this topic, this man is more concerned with what people are saying about him then actually preparing to be President. At this time that he would even care or have the time to make comments is truly mind boggling . That all anyone has to say to him is how wonderful he is and they will get whatever they want is what scares me the most about the next 4 years.

    • Rob says:

      Pretty sure he has done more, and is better prepared/further along in nominations than our last president was. I don’t agree with everything DJT does or says, but all ya’ll snowflakes need to put down the play dough and join the real world. He, is, president. If you like the US, hope he does a great job and read ALL sides of the story – news – from ALL sources. Breitbart and CNN etc, combine what you know and make an informed decision, do not just listen to whatever is on TV from the Maddows and Matthews and run with it. You will make yourself look a fool.

      • Pedro says:

        He doesn’t even go to briefings.

      • Butch says:

        The man spends his time commenting and making derisive comments about anyone who criticizes him. How would you know that he is better prepared than anybody for anything. I can say he is thin skinned because he is constantly tweeting about it. I think your comments are more about your hopes than facts.

      • A fan of TV says:

        Pretty sure are you? Sounds like you’re parroting what someone else told you, and you haven’t read anything critical yourself. Still, I’m sure it’s too late to help you realise you have your facts all wrong, or you don’t even know upon what basis the person who told you he was ‘further along’ was defining this idea. And that is sad!

        You can call us snowflakes, but your post is obvious evidence that you’ve got your back up, too. So who, really, are the snowflakes here? If you were strong you’d ignore us, rise above, but you’re as easily baited into name-calling as your ‘sometimes’-man, DJT.

      • Temperance says:

        I love that the dead-brained patronizing morons like to call their enemies ‘snowflakes’. They’re hard, sharp, nearly perfect, pretty, and absolutely deadly in groups.

        • TJ says:

          Temperance… This comment is amazing! Thank you!!

        • A fan of TV says:

          Temperance, it’s just a buzzword they’ve been trained to repeat as a line of attack. They don’t actually understand WHY they’ve been trained to say it. They just do, because of their previous training to hate the left wing.

      • T o. says:

        Agreed, Rob. If she wanted to give her opinion, that was not the place to do it. Though she has a right, maybe she could give more thought to the loss of revenue movies are struggling with… This is surely one of the reasons. Reasonable people can disagree but no one welcomes insults.

  15. Raul J says:

    Meryl Streep-just another lefty loon who can’t deal with the fact that Shrillery lost.

    • Angela says:

      You realize nobody will take anything you say even remotely seriously when all you can come up with for an argument is calling someone a “lefty loon” or referring to Hillary as “Shillary”, right? It’s not cute or clever.

    • TJ says:

      Actually all name calling is juvenile at this point. And why must Hillary be brought up every time he is criticized? The election is over and the need for deflection has passed. He, and he alone, needs to be accountable for what he says and does. Yes, some will criticize just like with every single administration. Remember, he himself went after Obama hard for a long time.

    • Temperance says:

      *snickers* I see you’re feeling the Streep’s hard score. And some serious shame that she’s absolutely correct.

    • A fan of TV says:

      Too funny. All this crap about lefties cutting the snark is such BS when you see snark-laden drivel such as this comment from the right wing. Like I said, we should refuse to cut the snark until Trump learns how to use Twitter like a respectable human being who clearly understands the weight of his new job. Until then, the clown show deserves a peanut gallery.

  16. Tony Lang says:

    “Mr. Trump, there’s been a mass shooting in an airport, a car bomb killed dozens in Israel, North Korea says they may nuke us any day now, and the entire intelligence community knows your bff hacked the election”.
    “Uh-huh…”
    “Oh, and Meryl Streep reminded people you made fun of a disabled reporter.”
    “WHAT?!? GET ME MY F***ING PHONE!”

    • Rob says:

      Oh how many examples shall I post of Obama playing golf while the world burns, with a fire he and Hillary started! You are a fool, yes I have resorted to name calling, there is no other word for it unfortunately. I have no problem calling people out if they are not doing their job. But guess what!? He ain’t president yet is he?? You fool.

      • DL says:

        You can’t make a point by saying “how many examples shall I post”. Because you don’t have any examples. Presidents go on vacation. George W. Bush took more vacation days than Obama, while way worse things were happening. International diplomacy can’t be done with a Tweet, no matter what the orange vulgarian thinks. And meanwhile, what about the Republican do-nothing Congress over the last six years that did WAY LESS than the historical Congress that is literally known as the “Do-Nothing Congress.”

      • Butch says:

        Yeah why don’t you start posting all these examples. Or are you going to be like Trump and say I am going to make America great again without saying how?

        • Rob says:

          Well I’ve tried a few times and it’s not letting me post links. How’s about you use your 3 brain cells to google “obama golfs while the world burns”, you might get a few results. Anyone who has payed attention the last 8 years knows how disconnected and juvenile he is. Petulant child is a perfect couple words for him.

          • Katherine215 says:

            I’m a little concerned that you have fallen so far off the path of reality, you can’t find your way back. Dislike Obama? Fine, that’s your right. But to call him juvenile and disconnected is patently false. And there is clear documentation that he has taken less vacation than many other presidents. Facts matter.

          • Mary says:

            I think your hatred for Obama maybe clouding your judgement. Was he perfect, of course not, but your statement proves that you are not objective. Just to let you know this site doesn’t allow links but if they aren’t from a valid source nobody will be interested in seeing them anyway. No Breitbart is not a valid source.

          • A fan of TV says:

            In the meantime, Google the amount of time GWB spent on vacation at his ranch in 8 years. You’ll realize progressives work a lot harder than the narrative you’ve been force-fed suggests. Now recognize that Trump spends a ton of downtime in Palm Beach, refuses to tell people where he will be (transparency – he only demands it of everyone but himself) and is leaving the running of the country up to those who actually want to be there, then taking credit for their work. Similar to how he runs his businesses – taking credit for things that go well, blaming someone or something else when they go wrong.

      • Tony Lang says:

        Nice try Donald, we all recognized you!

      • TJ says:

        How is this relevant? Mr Trump’s actions are his own. The election is over, he is the President elect. No need to continue to deflect to Hillary, Obama or anyone else. Citing examples of worse behavior is a pointless reaction, right up there with the “everyone else is doing it” defense.

        • Angela says:

          Yep. For eight years I heard conservatives say, “You can’t keep blaming Bush anymore, he’s not president, Obama is, and he needs to take responsibility.”
          .
          Okay. Then the same goes for Trump. He and his supporters can’t pull up complaints about Obama or Hillary or whomever anymore when Trump does something. They need to take responsibility for their actions and words, too. Fair’s fair.

    • DL says:

      2017: The year real life turned into a reality show.

  17. Kar says:

    What is wrong with American’s that you voted for this douchebag who just rants at people on Twitter all day?

    • Katherine215 says:

      Less than a quarter of us voted for him. Another quarter voted for someone else, and the other half of the voting public didn’t care enough to get off their butts and take a stand. As for what’s wrong with us, I wish I knew.

      • grazelled says:

        Exactly. The majority of Americans did not vote for Trump in the popular vote, he lost that by almost 3 million votes no matter what the excuses he comes up with.

  18. Lawrence E Fogarty says:

    This constant piaking at President Donald Trump show the impotence and whiny hypocrisy fo the left and associated human debris. If The little bandy leg Rooster used Twitter it would be too “Cooool”.

    President Trump is a danger and a horrible person and yet this delusion idiots think the world of Obama. This from a man who spent 96 million dollars in 8 years on vacation and couldn’t even do a flyover of the the Chicago Killing Fields and wave.

    • John says:

      Sorry buddy but your rant holds no water. This man is classic narcissist. He is a bully and a sociopath. He is hands down a danger. People who support him think only of themselves…..they look at the world and only see their reflection. If he can’t take criticism while in office….we’re all in trouble.

    • A fan of TV says:

      You alperpetuated this regurgitated crap in a higher post. You cannot explain how a flyover would solve the problems in Chicago (because it would not, and would in fact waste time), nor can you accept that the problems in Chicago are now Trump’s responsibility, and no one has any ideas how to fix gun violence that don’t involve regulating guns. So Trump is bound to fail in fixing Chicago’s problems, too.

    • Cat says:

      Trump will cost more than that in just the first few months at $1 million a day to protect his wife and son just because Barron doesn’t want to leave his current school and don’t forget what Trump will earn from the US taxpayer renting space in Trump Tower to the secret service.

  19. kmw says:

    I agree with someone on another post who said Mr. Trump just guaranteed Streep another Oscar. Whether you agree with Streep’s speech, again our President Elect is showing how thin skinned he. Is he going to lash out on twitter every time someone, whether an actor or a statesman from another country criticizes him? Apparently yes and god help us for the next four years.

  20. A fan of TV says:

    I suppose if anyone can speak from experience about being overrated, it’s America’s pitiful POS president-elect. That doesn’t make any of what Meryl said wrong. ‘Be kind to the disabled.’ ‘You’re overrated!!’ face.palm.

    And everyone keeps telling liberals they have to turn down the snark, apparently so we can make room for right-wing snark they believe they are victims of and not perpetrators in equal measure (cough Megan McCain cough cough). When Trump gives up tweeting at his enemiesto behave like a grown man is the day the snark should be turned down by the mortified left.

  21. Pedro says:

    I think Trump is highly overrated.

  22. Maria says:

    Incidentally, Meryl Streep is absolutely NOT overrated. She’s a d#*m good actress.

    • Then shut up and act!

      • DarkDefender says:

        Meryl Streep has the same right as you and I to voice dissent. The Constitutiton protects that right. She criticized the behavior of an incoming elected official. You criticize the outgoing elected official. There is no difference, except she has a large audience and you do not.

  23. brandy says:

    What a turd. HOW is this our president?

  24. Shaw says:

    Does anyone else feel like the ppl around him are just letting him ruin himself, so they can find a way to declare him incompetent so Pence can take over.

  25. Edna says:

    Trump denies he made fun of the reporter. How can you deny reality? Anyone who defends him on this issue is on the planet of happy thoughts. We need someone to call him on it. It was an awful moment and what was worse were all the people who laughed when he did it.

  26. Mary says:

    Surprise it took this long, but seriously anyone with a brain knows this is not a sane rational person. Seriously people who voted for him really must have hated Hillary to stoop so low as to vote for a clueless, self center person. There is no way you can complain about the left being whiners when he is the biggest baby ever to walk the face of the earth. Congrats on electing a imbecile.

  27. Tony Bruno says:

    Why dont you looney leftists STFU already-Meryl Steep, the washed up overrated lib, can say whatever the hell she wants on the Golden Globes yet NO one can defend Trump, or call her out to EXPLAIN WTF she means? Theres a REASON he won, because most of us are Sick and Tired of the ineffective reign of Obama the terrible! Unemployment is UP, poverty is UP, we’re STILL in Iraq, and hes pulled us into countless conflicts, yet hes the PEACETIME president? Cost of living is WAY up and salaries are DOWN! Are we all better off now than we were 8 years ago? Not ME!

  28. Lola says:

    Pitiful pathetic piece of human waste. And this is the man in charge of leading the country for four years? What a joke. Politicians are always criticized and instead of pushing forth with his appointed job he was voted to do, he rather take to Twitter to bashing the country’s free people that he doesn’t agree with? And then he’ll probably wonder why half the country bow their head in embarrassment and shame that he’s the leader. WAtching him and his wacko family enter the White House is like watching the Kardashians enter Buckingham Palace. It’s a joke.

  29. Sara says:

    He is so incredibly childish!! Holy crap!

  30. Mark D. Moss says:

    It’s my fervent hope that Trump puts ALL his energy into Twitter-insulting celebrities. If it’s a choice between being embarrassed worldwide by the small fingered vulgarian or having him enact *any* of is insane, racist, fascist policies, I’ll take the twitter stuff.

  31. Josh says:

    Ergh…you’re going to be the President. Just don’t respond. Show maturity…

  32. John O says:

    Meryl Streep equals class. Donald Trump equals classless. He is the worst demagogue ever. H

  33. Tahina says:

    Trumputin doesn’t have the COJONES, Marco Rubio was right..you can’t trust men with small “hands”..yep, God have mercy on US ..of a petty of a man with thin skin and small cojones. Meryl my<3 is all yours.

  34. Jimmy says:

    LOL she’s the overrated one? Look in the mirror, you oompa-loompa.

  35. SoMuchHope says:

    Right or wrong, I think celebrities need to stop using their acceptance speech as a political platform. I mean, pretty soon all awards will be reduced to a list of nominees and winners. I love you Meryl Streep and Tom Hiddleston and Patricia Arquette and Kerry Washington and the rest of ’em.

  36. Scott says:

    Don’t you just love liberal cry babies .

  37. John O says:

    Meryl Streep equals class. Donald Trump equals class less.

  38. Rk says:

    Let’s be clear here. Meryl obviously got under his very thin skin. Poor little Donny can’t get any A listers to show up to his inauguration and one of the greatest actors of all time dissed him to a global audience. Calling her overrated only serves to make him look like the vain fool. His ego will be his downfall.

  39. Marci says:

    We’re getting an arrested toddler for President. Wonderful!

  40. peterwdawson says:

    Sigh… Really hope the inauguration changes things. Otherwise the next four years are going to be long. And I’m saying that as a non-American. Just constant ripping of the man who was already ripped so much he was basically dared into becoming President yet despite supposedly getting everything he wants has been reduced to skin so thin it’s basically just an aerosol, done primarily by people who get on stage to give the speeches thanks to political dealings disguised as an award process. It feels like some joke Hyde would have made on that 70s Show back in the 90s when remembered that the show existed.

  41. Bobby says:

    Trump, the Idiot In Chief, needs to jump off a very high bridge into very cold water.

  42. GailLW says:

    I always liked Meryl Streep….until her political comments. Not the time or place. People have a right to their beliefs and opinions, but using this night to speak out did nothing but turn people off to her… and yes, I’m a Hililary support. This, however, was not the night to cause divide and controversy
