Trump VS Streep: Round 2. When the awarded actress hinted that she judges Trump’s behavior concerning a disabled journalist (although she never referred to him by name), the newly-elected President attacked her in return via social networks. At first, in the interview, Trump denied mocking the journalist and said: “I was calling into question a reporter who had gotten nervous because he had changed his story,” arguing that the reporter had been trying to back away from an article he wrote in September 2001 about the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and elsewhere that month. People keep saying I intended to mock the reporter’s disability, as if Meryl Streep and others could read my mind, and I did no such thing. And remember, Meryl Streep introduced Hillary Clinton at her convention, and a lot of these people supported Hillary.”

Later the same day Trump posted a set of tweets in which he called Ms. Streep “one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood,” and “a Hillary flunky who lost big.” He also reiterated his argument that he had not mocked the reporter “but simply showed him ‘grovelling.’”
