Watch Meryl Streep's full Golden Globes speech – and see what Trump had to say

Everybody's talking about Meryl Streep's Golden Globes speech – including Donald Trump.
Author:

Donald Trump has hit back at Meryl Streep after she called him out in a speech at the Golden Globes.

The President-elect denounced the 19-time Oscar-nominated actor as "overrated" after she criticized him – without naming him – in her speech accepting her Cecil B. Demille Award for outstanding contribution to the entertainment industry at Sunday night's ceremony.

Streep was critical of a speech Trump gave in November 2015 in which he appeared to mock New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski, who suffers from a joint abnormality.

From the outset Trump has denied mocking his disability, but Streep described it as the one performance this year "that stunned me."

"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."

Here's her full speech.

Trump responds

Trump responded to Streep – through Twitter, naturally – on Monday morning, repeating that he did not mock the reporter's disability, and criticized the three-time Oscar winner – the most venerated and decorated female actor of her generation – as "overrated."

He also pointed out that she was a Hillary Clinton supporter (well, he uses the word "flunky"), which follows Streep giving a speech in support of the unsuccessful Democratic nominee at last year's Democratic National Convention.

Here's the clip that Streep was referring to:
