This year’s Golden Globe Awards became the platform for what will now be known as one of the most famous (called to the carpet) smackdown speeches of the year! Meryl Streep gave Donald Trump the good, old fashioned, church lady read as she accepted the Cecil B. Demille Lifetime Achievement Award.
While speaking at a tour stop during his 2016 campaign for the highest seat in the country, president-elect Donald Trump shamelessly mocked a disabled reporter, named Serge F. Kovaleski. In his denial Trump claimed to have never met Kovaleski. However, much like many other false claims that the president elect has made, it turned out that they’d actually met on at least a dozen occasions.
Like Meryl Streep, we were also outraged when this mockery happened. Take a look at the video:
And thanks to Academy Award winning legend Meryl Streep...she called Trump on his bullshit without ever having to mention is his name. Nailed it!
