Err,you joke ,no?
A few years ago he was claiming Merryl Streep was a "fine actress,one of the best" now she's "one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood",the only thing that changed in the intervening period was that she allied herself with Clinton in the election campaign,and was scathing of Trumps questionable conduct toward minority groups and particular the disabled.
She earned his erroneous comment by simply being opposed to his lack of composure,eloquence and correctness as a result.
He couldn't have been more wrong in his attack on her.
That can't be denied,though with 2 million,that T-W-O M-I-L-L-I-O-N less votes than his opponent,which says more about the so called democracy of the USA than anything
I'm very impressed with Trump's spiel.
Isn't someone more than what they spiel?
Though taken at his word his record of what he says about other people,particularly minority groups,Muslims,Mexicans,women,and the disabled cast a long shadow.
All from a man whose been declared bankrupt four times.
You may be impressed,I'm not.
He knows how to get votes.
In a rigged system yes your right he does.
But that just makes him like many politicians before him,
I disagree he's potentially far,far worse if his track record is anything to go by.
including the disappointing Mr Obama who was equally eloquent though in a different way.
No worse than many others and better than most in both speech and actions.
As for Ms Streep, she has revealed her predictable views to an audience of other rich, like-minded people and got a round of applause. Big deal.
What you seem to forget is that her speech has now been watched around the world by billions and not just the assembled rich actors,I strongly suspect that when she threw that cat among those pigeons she knew exactly what she was doing.
Her gift in return was the "composed, eloquent and correct" tweet by the President elect Mr Trump as he gracefully stepped into the man trap carefully laid before him for all the world to see,all the world except Mr Trump of course
Is this the man to bring prosperity to the US and stability to the world,I'm concerned that he isn't the man for the job by a long chalk.
