Meryl Streep word slapped the shit out of Donald Trump
by Nathan'ette Burdine: January 13, 2017

Without a whisper of his name, Meryl Streep word slapped the shit out of Donald Trump.

During her acceptance speech of the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award at the Golden Globes, Streep hit Trump at his core of who he is as a human being.

By all respects, Trump has not shown that he is the rational being that God intended for human beings to be.

Trump has instead conducted himself in a manner that is not becoming of a person who’s been on this earth for 70 years.

He’s allowed his emotions, and not his reason, to direct his actions. And in so doing, he’s made incendiary comments about minorities, women, and the disable; which has divided the country along racial, gender, and ethnic lines.

Streep recognizes this. She recognizes that this man, who had just entered onto the presidential stage, was putting on more than a performance, but that he was acting in real life in his own one man show that will have a catastrophic affect on all of us who call this world our stage.

Streep said about Trump:
           "But there was one performance this year that
            stunned me…It was that moment when the person asking
            to sit  in the  most respected seat in our country imitated
            a disabled reporter, someone he out ranked in privilege,
            power, and the capacity to fight back. 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 cause it kind of gives permission for other
            people to do the same thing. Disrespect invites disrespect.
            Violence incites violence. When the powerful use their
            position to bully others, we all lose.”

Needless to say, Donald Trump didn’t like Meryl Streep word slapping him without mentioning his name.

So he did what he always does. He got up early Monday morning and tweeted about her.

Trump tweeted , “Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but a Hillary flunky who lost big. For the 100th time, I never ‘mocked’ a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him ‘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!”

Unbeknownst to poor ol’ Trump there, he just validated everything Streep said about him.

With all that he has to worry about from Russia, North Korea, the Middle East crisis, terrorists, immigration, to the fragile economy, Trump gets up early in the morning to tweet about Streep’s speech during the Golden Globes.

And then also within that tweet, he double-talks himself and shows his pettiness by mocking a disabled reporter.

First he says that he “would never do that” and then he admits to dissing the man by saying he “showed him ‘groveling’ due to a change in “a 16-year-old story” that Trump said made him “look bad.”

As bad as Trump’s response to Streep and the disabled reporter is, it is not surprising.

Trump has consistently shown that he is shallow and insecure and that he will project these negative images of himself onto others in an effort to not deal with the person he is.

So yes, Streep got it right when she describe Trump as an irrational, petty human being who lacked the basic God-given human qualities to not only be president of the United States but to interact with his fellow man and woman.
