Our sensitive, self-entitled brat in chief Donald Trump took to Twitter last night to viciously mock beloved actress Meryl Streep for daring to call him out for mocking a disabled reporter.
For our so-called president-elect to be responding to well-deserved criticism in such a pathetic way is just disgraceful, and his efforts to rewrite reality and pretend the incident he’s being called out for never happened shows how Trump is threatening the truth itself.
His shameless attempt to gaslight the nation into believing his spastic episode never happened and to somehow undermine the “credibility” of Streep by calling her “overrated” was met with rightful scorn and derision from social media.
We collected the best responses for you:
In one speech, #MerylStreep showed more bravery and empathy than Donald Trump has shown in his entire sad, priveleged life.

If Meryl Streep is the devil who wears Prada
Donald Trump is the devil who swears by Pravda

You wake up crying a lot because you know you've never had an original thought nor done anything for yourself, huh?

.@realDonaldTrump Meryl Streep has received a record 19 Oscar nominations and a record 30 Golden Globe nominations. Yeah, clearly overrated.

I love your performance art! So realistic a portrayal of a deranged unhinged thin skinned politician

.@realDonaldTrump Sir: With so many grave problems in our country – so much work to do – is belittling an actress the best use of your time?

yes, Meryl is totally overrated. She's not one of those super talented actors like Scott Baio!

Just the kind of thin skin you want in the Oval Office. #manbaby
