Trump’s Attack on Meryl Streep is ONE BIG FLOP

President-elect Trump likely pictured his Twitter tirade against Meryl Streep to be met with applause. Instead, Trump got mocked all over again.

One of the top nationally trending hashtags is #ThingsTrumpThinksAreOverrated, which was created in response to a series of tweets the President-elect shot off early Monday morning, in which he called actress Meryl Streep “one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood.” Streep made headlines Sunday night for a Golden Globes acceptance speech in which she referred to Trump as a “bully,” referencing his mocking of a New York Times reporter with a disability.

Another Twitter user pointed out that Meryl Streep has more Academy Award nominations than Trump has failed businesses and bankruptcies:

Streep’s speech definitely struck a nerve with some of Trump’s most ardent supporters, who took to Twitter to blast the actress as a member of the out-of-touch Hollywood elite. Twitter user Lisa Donne had the best response:
