Donald Trump lashes out at Meryl Streep following her Golden Globes speech

Sunday night’s must-see moment at the Golden Globes had to be Meryl Streep’s acceptance speech upon receiving the Cecille B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award.

The actress used the time to call out Donald Trump’s impersonation of disabled reported Serge Kovaleski, who suffers a congenital joint condition:

Since the speech aired, the world’s been waiting with bated breath for Trump’s reaction — which finally arrived yesterday morning in a rambling series of Tweets that are as ludicrous as you’ve come to expect:

While Streep’s speech was largely celebrated and widely shared after airing Sunday night, there were still a handful of detractors like Meghan McCain and Laura Ingraham:

Meanwhile, Twitter lit up with hundreds of people praising Streep’s speech:

    Trump wasn’t mocking the man for his disability. Classic case of media running with a wrong narrative.

        Video evidence of numerous other instances whereTrump made the exact same gesture to fully able-bodied people when attacking them exist. It’s just Trump being his silly self

    I’m on fire with this first to comment thing. It is very clear that no one agrees with what trump did, but I can’t help but to agree with some of the things about tweeted. There’s a place to do certain things, and who’s to say that the award ceremony was the right place. That being said, that speech was really something. I at least know that I would use that quote in the future. If I was an American, I bet I would have cried

      I think the Golden Globes was as right as any platform for Meryl to give her speech. Think of the number if people tuned in, think of the reach of the platform, think of the reporting it would get (as it already has) as against her calling, say, a private press conference. In her shoes I would do the same.

    If this man hasn’t gotten into office yet and is already this insane, I shudder to think what the world would be in the next 4 years.
