Donald Trump has a long history of criticizing people. Too bad he can’t take even the most respectful of critiques in return.

Actress-extraordinaire Meryl Streep just had some choice words for Trump at the Golden Globe awards. And now Trump is having a meltdown on Twitter over the incident.

Streep’s most damning comments came in regard to Trump’s making fun of a disabled reporter. She described it as the “one performance this year that stunned me.”

“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,” Streep said. “It kind of broke my heart when I saw it.”

Trump doesn’t have a history of handling things in a cool and collected manner. So it’s no surprise that Trump has started shamefully taking Streep to task on Twitter.

He called Streep an “over-rated actress,” which is pure insanity and hypocrisy. The only thing that’s “over-rated” is your terrible, debt-ridden business acumen Mr. Trump.

Also, Trump’s claim that he didn’t make fun of that disabled reporter is a bold-faced lie. But that’s just what bullies do: lie, cheat, and steal.

Bravo to Meryl Streep for her sage advice to the American people. Shame on Mr. Trump for making himself look like a complete fool…again.
