Donald Trump's Tweets About Meryl Streep's Globes Speech

Guess Which Bitter Reality Star Called Meryl Streep the "Most Over-Rated Actress in Hollywood"?

Meryl Streep was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes on Sunday night, where she used her searing, passionate acceptance speech as an opportunity to highlight some of the country's most pressing issues. After touching on the importance of diversity in both Hollywood and in America, she didn't hold back while explaining why Donald Trump, the former reality star who is days away from running our country, must be held accountable for his actions. She specifically brought up an incident that happened at a South Carolina campaign rally, when he openly mocked a reporter with a disability. "There was nothing good about it, but it did its job," she said of the moment. "It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can't get it out my head because it wasn't in a movie; it was in real life. That instinct to humiliate when it's modeled by someone in a public platform, it filters down into everyone's life because it gives permission for others to do the same."

While you might think America's president-elect would have better things to do than tweet about the Golden Globes, you'd be wrong. He took to the social media platform on Monday morning to express his displeasure about Meryl's acting caliber and to deny that he ever made fun of the disabled reporter (despite the fact that it 100 percent did happen and was caught on video).

Although we wish his reaction was one of the many hilarious political jokes that the Golden Globes had to offer, it's simply yet another reminder of our uncertain future, which MTV News columnist Anne T. Donahue summed up best in this tweet:
