Those who watched the 2017 Golden Globes may have seen actress Meryl Streep accuse President-elect Donald Trump of mocking a reporter for his disability. But is this actually true?
The President-elect responded to this on Twitter. He said, “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 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!”
Some say they have video proof showing Trump mocking the reporter’s disability, and on first glance it does appear that way. On further investigation, however, we learn that Trump used this same exact gesture to make fun of many other people, none of whom are disabled.
Mark Dice has put together a video showing this.
Kellyanne Conway also had this to say about Meryl Streep’s concern for the disabled.
