Donald Trump calls Meryl Streep 'overrated' after her Golden Globes speech

During an acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards, Meryl Streep addressed President-elect Donald Trump.

"An actor's only job is to enter the lives of people who are different from us and let you feel what that feels like, and there are many, many performances this year that did just that," she said. "There was one performance this year that stunned me. It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good. It was because it did its job. It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter. Someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back. It kind of broke my heart and I still can't get it out of my head because it wasn't in a movie. It was real life."

Trump denied making fun of journalist Serge Kovaleski during a 2015 rally, but was highly criticized for flailing his arms and mocking Kovaleski.

Streep also referenced Trump's proposed plan to build a wall between Mexico and the U.S. and to ban Muslims from the country, as well as his previous demands for President Barack Obama's birth certificate.

"Amy Adams was born in Vicenza, Italy. And Natalie Portman was born in Jerusalem," she said. "Where are their birth certificates? And the beautiful Ruth Negga was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, raised in London -- no, in Ireland I do believe -- and she's here nominated for playing a girl in small-town Virginia. Ryan Gosling, like all of the nicest people, is Canadian, and Dev Patel was born in Kenya, raised in London, and is here playing an Indian raised in Tasmania.

"Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners. If we kick them all out, you'll have nothing to watch but football and Mixed Martial Arts -- which are not the arts."

In response, Trump took to Twitter Monday, calling the actress "overrated" and "a Hillary flunky." 

Trump asserted "for the 100th time" that he did not ridicule Kovaleski.

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.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 9, 2017

Hillary flunky who lost big. For the 100th time, I never "mocked" a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him.......— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 9, 2017

"groveling" when he totally changed a 16 year old story that he had written in order to make me look bad. Just more very dishonest media!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 9, 2017

BLI’s Healthy Women

BLI is teaming up with Siena Women’s Health to bring you tips for maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  This month, we are taking a look at women’s heart health. Do you know what causes heart disease in women? What about the survival rate? Or whether women of all ethnicities share the same risk? The fact is: Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year. That’s approximately one woman every minute! But it doesn’t affect all women alike, and the warning signs for women aren’t the same in men. What’s more: These facts only begin to scratch the surface. Understanding Congenital Heart Defects Up to 1.3 million Americans alive today have some form of congenital heart defect and at least nine of every 1,000 infants born each year have a heart defect. Learn more about heart defects and testing in infants. Atherosclerosis & Stroke Atherosclerosis may be caused by high blood pressure, physical inactivity and other factors. It causes the artery walls to harden and may result in stroke. Learn more about atherosclerosis and stroke. Silent Heart Attack: Symptoms, Risks A heart attack without obvious symptoms is called a silent heart attack, or medically referred to as silent ischemia. (Info from: GoRedForWomen)
