Donald Trump Calls Meryl Streep ‘Hillary Flunky’ in Response to Golden Globes Speech

In a series of three tweets sent over the course of 30 minutes and long before the sun came up in New York, Donald Trump responded to Meryl Streep‘s emotional Golden Globes speech, in which she criticized the president-elect. Trump called the most honored actress in Hollywood “overrated” and a “Hillary flunky.”

“Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes,” Trump wrote. “She is a Hillary flunky who lost big. For the 100th time, I never ‘mocked’ a disabled 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. Just more very dishonest media!”

Trump also spoke with the New York Times briefly after the ceremony. He said he was “not surprised” that he was under attack from “liberal movie people.” Trump told the Times that he didn’t watch the Globes.

In her speech, Streep referenced Trump’s mocking of Serge Kovaleski, a reporter who has arthrogryposis. She said that moment was the “one performance this year that stunned me.”

“It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter,” Streep continued in her speech, which never mentioned Trump by name. “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 continued, “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 kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing.

“Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose. OK, go on with that thing. OK, this brings me to the press. We need the principled press to hold power to account, to call them on the carpet for every outrage.”

In his Times interview, just like he did on Twitter, Trump insisted that he wasn’t making fun of Kovaleski. “I was calling into question a reporter who had gotten nervous because he had changed his story,” Trump said, referencing how Kovaleski distanced himself from an article written after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Here’s the moment Streep was referring to:

Streep, who did introduce Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention, received the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award at the Golden Globes. She also has three Oscars and the more Oscar nominations than any actress in film history. Her speech also called on the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which hands out the Globes, to protect journalists and support the Committee to Protect Journalists.

“That’s why our founders enshrined the press and its freedoms in our constitution,” Streep said. “So I only ask the famously well-heeled Hollywood foreign press and all of us in our community to join me in supporting the Committee to Protect Journalists, ’cause we’re going to need them going forward and they’ll need us to safeguard the truth.”

Viola Davis, who introduced Streep and won the Best Supporting Actress Globe for Fences, also discussed Trump during her backstage interviews with the press.

“I believe that it is our responsibility to uphold what it is to be an American and what America is about in the true meaning of what it means to pursue the American dream,” Davis said. “I think that America in and of itself has been an affirmation but I think that we’ve fallen short a lot because there is no way that we can have anyone in office that is not an extension of our own belief system.”

    • Ugh…there is seriously something wrong and sick about you and the trump supporters below.
      You embarrass the entire country.

  1. I’m afraid… Donald Trump!… what’s “overrated” is your “PERSONAL SECURITY DETAIL” that will be attending your upcoming inauguration! And!… and if you make it past your “sorry excuse” for an inauguration!… this same overrated DETAIL will be stuck with “attempting” to guard your “sorry *ss” for the next little while! And!… the very same “wonderkids”… I should point out!… who’ve determined that Russia was behind the DNC hack!
    .
    In light of the CLEAR EVIDENCE that Y-O-U… O-H, C-L-O-W-N P-R-E-Z!… were in COLLUSION with Putin re this hack of the DNC, for the DNI and “Homeland Security (what a joke!)” to even D-A-R-E “debrief” Y-O-U on their… O-B-V-I-O-U-L-Y!… B-O-G-U-S F-I-N-D-I-N-G-S, indicates to me– at least!– that the DNI and “Homeland Security” are a S-E-R-I-O-U-S T-H-R-E-A-T to the U.S. And so!… it’s my guess, that sundry Americans are probably determined to do something about that! And thus!… in addition to Y-O-U ducking for cover, your JERK DETAIL, will– as well!– be spending a significant amount of time under desks, and tables!

    • You piece of shit….are you and your scumbag liberal friends hoping and planning for something? I hope ISIS (that your scumbag Obama created) chops your head off before trump eradicates them.

    • Grab your safety pin, wrap yourself in your blankie and drink your hot cocoa while ricking softly in your baby fit. How dare u talk to Mr. Pres Elect like that u hoe! What an infantile perspective that you carry around..holding onto Meryl Streep’s garbage mouth. Is she even roling in any movies anymore? Can u say, “Washed up?” Trump 2017!

  2. It’s so ironic that a man who ran on “Make America Great Again” is such a national embarrassment.

    Fortunately for the Donald, he inherits an America that is doing better than ever. Thanks to Obama, we have record unemployment numbers, record stock market highs, low gas prices, legalized gay marriage, low health insurance costs (mine is less than 100/month thanks to Obamacare), low car insurance costs (mine is just 25/month from Insurance Panda), low mortgage rates, high consumer confidence, legalized marijuana (almost), and more personal freedoms than ever before!

    Trump, on the other hand, picks another ignorant right wing fascist with mental health issues for his administration. We are in trouble, America!

    • you got to be kidding me right? An America that is doing better than ever? You must be living in another planet.Record unemployment numbers? When the maximum unemployment collection time is 12 weeks, and after that you’re on your own does not mean that person has been employed after those 12 weeks, and guess what? Most aren’t. Low gas prices? Maybe if compared to Europe but at almost $3 a gallon I’d hardly refer to that as low price. Low health insurance cost? How about my lowest on the Obamacare website being $485, because I did not fill out income taxes on account of being unemployed last year and still today. last year I was on my own with a “Exemption certificate” as they realized I could not pay if I had no income. This year the tune changed and I have to dish out nearly $500 if I don’t want to be fined. I think i;ll take the fine, its cheaper! Oh and for your information, I have not had insurance since 2008…. 2008 ring a bell? Since then i lost my full time job and have had to take part time jobs to make ends meet. Thank God for family! ETC ETC ETC … you should as a democrat be ashamed of yourself, as John F Kennedy put it so eloquently, “it’s not what your country can do for you, is what you can do for your country.” Everything you;ve mentioned has come with a cost, and me me me is not the answer… if I need to explain that then is not worth even discussing. Stop trying to cover the sun with one finger.

      • nina simone Not that I agree with claren cetrudell, but you lost your job in 2008? That year does ring a bell with me – it was the last year of the GW Bush administration. Obama wasn’t sworn in until Jan 20, 2009. Soooooo…..who exactly was responsible for you losing your job? I mean, other that you being less competent that other co-workers who weren’t fired.

  3. Hollywood will eventually crumble and blow into the Pacific Ocean, hopefully along with Pan and his mandatory vaccines… and the rest of libtard California. If you still have morals, jump ship now.

  4. I have to say that Hollywood has such less power of influence then say 30 years ago. People realize that Hollywood takes sides now with no regard to fans they had from the other side. Impunity they have not, for people are being disrespected for there choices. Streep is a classless fool for vilifying her fans. Keep it up Hollywood for less and less are caring or buying the
    toilet products you make

  5. ATTENTION HEAVY.COM!:…
    .
    In several sites,I have had problems with the denial of Comments by mere virtue of the fact that such may afford a LINK, or be Pasted from Notepad (or, some other Text Editor!… and, in the view, that such LINKING and Pasting, is synonymous with “SPAMMING”!)! And such “spurious moderation” by sites/ blog hosts, IS A CLEAR BREACH OF DIGITAL HUMAN RIGHTS! And I would point out– should point out!— that the said creator/ inventor of the very blog, Jorn Barger, EXTOLLED LINKING, Copying and Pasting into Web Logs ( and hence the name, blog!), and “BATCH COMMUNICATING”!… the latter issue, sundry sites/ blog hosts also seem to have a problem with!
    .
    To sum up… although websites may feel that these are free… for now!… to do as these will, re the otherwise FREE EXPRESSIONS of Netizens, such violations of Digital Human Rights (in the pretext that sites can do whatever these want!) is SOON coming to an end! And!… to the same extent that the DMCA is to be UPHELD re the ARBITRARY MANIPULATION of material that/ which comes under their “banner”, S-O T-O-O should the Rights of Netizens, be UPHELD (and, with, or without, the DMCA!)!
