“Meryl Streep, one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but attacked [me] last night at the Golden Globes,” the former reality TV host wrote, seemingly unaware of Meryl’s 19 Oscar nominations.
The hits kept coming from there.
“She is a Hillary flunky who lost big,” the 70-year-old added, despite the fact Meryl literally took home a lifetime achievement award yesterday, January 8.
Donald then tried to explain away his apparent mockery of a physically disabled reporter, which the Devil Wears Prada star criticized during her Cecil B. Demil award acceptable speech.

“For the 100th time, I never ‘mocked’ a disabled reporter,” the future White House resident claimed.
“(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.”
Meryl had a very different take on Donald’s alarming campaign speech from November 2015.
“There was one performance this year that stunned me,” the 67-year-old said last night.
“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.”
Meryl thinks that kind of negative behavior is only just getting started since Donald’s presidential inauguration is days away.
“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,” she continued.
“Because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing … Violence incites violence. And the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.”
At least the mother-of-four doesn’t believe all hope is lost.
“We need the principled press to hold power to account, to call them on the carpet for every outrage,” she added.
“That’s why our founders enshrined the press and its freedoms in our constitution.”
