Meryl Streep speaks out against Trump

Trump fires back.

While accepting the Cecil B. Demille award at the Golden Globes last night, three-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep criticized President-elect Donald Trump.

The actress noted that one 2016 performance this year "stunned" her. Without mentioning the President-elect by name, she talked about the moment itself.

She said, "It was the moment where 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 when I saw it and I still can't get it out of head because it wasn't a movie, it was real life."

Using her time onstage to speak about the issues, she also said "we need a principled press to hold power to account, to call them on the carpet for every outrage..."

Within a few hours, the President-elect fired back on Twitter. You can check out her speech below and then Donald Trump's Twitter responses below.
