On the January 11, Meryl Streep, a Hollywood actress, presented a speech while being honored at the golden globes. She made several statements about the foreigners that Hollywood would be amiss without.

Streep stated “There was one performance this year that stunned me. It sank its hook in my heart not because it was good.  It was ‑‑ there was nothing good about it, but it was effective, and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh and show their teeth. It was that moment when 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.”

This erupted into a huge discussion. Trump responded soon after on Twitter. He said that he never had and never would mock a disabled reporter and that he was simply demonstrating that the reporter was asking a question about a false accusation from when Trump was younger.

He went on to say that Meryl Streep is a severely overrated actress, and that it is all fake media. This array of tweets came after his praising her in 2015. Trump and his supporters were not the only ones to respond.

After Trump ceased his tweeting, Mark Hamill responded by taking some of Trump’s lines, and reciting them in his iconic “Joker” voice. In summation, it was yet another conflict about the controversial coming of Trump into the Oval office.
