Trump Hits Back at “Over-Rated” Actress Meryl Streep
Although Donald Trump has managed to attract voters with his sensational rhetoric, most believe he is not fit to become the President because of his uncivil language and unstable thoughts.

True to his nature, the U.S. President-elect Donald Trump reacted sharply today to spew his anger on a top Hollywood actress Meryl Streep who was addressing the celebs at the Golden Globes award ceremony on Sunday.
Ms. Streep spent a large part of her award acceptance speech to highlight Trump’s hate for immigrants and other sections of society.
However, without naming him, she censured Trump for imitating a disabled New York Times reporter in 2015 when Trump was campaigning for election.
Ms. Streep said it is not appropriate for a man who is going to occupy the highest position in the country to bully others who cannot match his rank. She also appealed the Hollywood fraternity to save the press, which is also under attack from Trump.
Obviously, Trump won’t sit quiet as he is known for his thin skin. “Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes. She is a Hillary flunky who lost big,” Trump tweeted today.

Trump also said that he never mocked the disabled reporter. But those who had seen Trump making fun of the reporter know that as usual he is telling a lie.
As old habits die hard, Trump once again blamed the media for telling the truth about his imitation of the reporter. “Dishonest media!” Trump tweeted today.
Many Americans have refused to accept Trump as their future President, because of his repeated hate speeches against different sections of society and rude behaviour.
Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, who has been spearheading a massive campaign to highlight the flaws in the U.S. election system, has planned an event under the banner ‘Inaugurate the Resistance‘ to oppose Trump’s presidency.
Similarly, a leading filmmaker Michael Moore who is a fierce critic of Trump has dismissed the election of Trump by the Electoral College electors saying that the process has benefited the candidate who spewed racism and hate.
Moore has suggested 5 different things that Americans can do to express their resentment against Trump. He said that Hillary Clinton had defeated Trump by nearly 3 million votes in the November presidential election but lost the presidency to him.
Although Trump received majority of the 538 state-by-state electoral votes to win the presidency, his rival Hillary Clinton won 48.2% of the popular vote compared with 46.1% for Trump.
In other words, Clinton got nearly 3 million more votes than what Trump got in the November election. But the U.S. election system declared Trump as the winner.
Although Trump has managed to attract voters with his sensational rhetoric, most believe he is not fit to become the President because of his uncivil language and unstable thoughts.
His speeches and tweets are full of vulgar words such as “sleaze,” “stupid,” “goofy,” “crooked,” “liar,” “low life,” “bimbo,” and so on.
The Inauguration Day ceremony will take place on January 20 when Trump is scheduled to begin his four-year term as President.
