Instead of uniting the country, Donald Trump seems to be fighting everybody and ensuring more disunity in a country that is highly turn apart and deeply divided politically and racially. Just last week, it was Donald Trump VS Rosie O’Donnell. Now it is Donald Trump VS Meryl Streep.

Donald Trump VS Meryl Streep

Meryl Streep is 67-year-old three-time Oscar winner. During her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award in the Golden Globes which took place on ‎Sunday, ‎09 ‎January, ‎2017, Meryl Streep used the opportunity to show her disagreement with Donald Trump’s behaviour when she said: “there were many, many powerful performances” by actors this year, “but there was one performance this year that stunned me”…

Streep was referring to Trump’s action in mocking Serge Kovaleski, a disabled New York Times reporter during the presidential campaign. Kovaleski suffers from a congenital joint condition which is medically known as arthrogryposis.

“It sank its hooks in my heart,” Streep continues. “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 and I still can’t get it out of my head because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life. 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. Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.”

As Melania Trump once said, The presidential election would not be a Trump contest without drama and excitement. Donald Trump did not let Streep’s accusation sit on him without firing back.

The next day, Trump took to his favorite social media, Twitter, and fired back at Meryl Streep with numerous tweets, some of which can be seen below this article.

Funny enough, whenever Trump is involved in any social media fight with anybody, he often brings in Hillary Clinton’s defeat in the presidential election. Trump referred to Streep in one of his tweets as “Hillary flunky who lost big”.
