At Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards Meryl Streep took the time during her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award to speak about Donald Trump. However, she did so without referring to him by name.
“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, someone he outranked in privilege, power, and the capacity to fight back. It kind of broke my heart when I saw it. I still can’t get it out of my head because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life.”
Donald Trump has now responded to the speech on Twitter, calling her “one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood.”
