On Sunday night, actress Meryl Streep gave an impassioned speech against bullying at the Golden Globe awards. Naturally, the fragile president-elect took to his Twitter account to unleash mean-girls tweets about Streep. The thing is, Streep never mentioned Trump by name. Streep, who just received a lifetime achievement award was called “one of the most over-rated [sic] actresses in Hollywood” by Trump on Twitter after she gave her speech.
Trump senior adviser Kellyanne Conway dismissed Trump’s bullying of a disabled reporter to CNN’s Chris Cuomo, which the president-elect now denies doing. Conway asked that people ignore Trump’s words and instead look at “his heart.”
“You can’t give him the benefit of the doubt on this and he’s telling you what was in his heart?” Conway asked. “You always want to go by what’s come out of his mouth rather than look at what’s in his heart.”
Watch, uploaded by ThinkProgress:
Conway made the rounds today and appeared on Fox and Friends earlier to say that Meryl Streep incited ‘people’s worst instincts’ at the Golden Globe awards.
In November of 2015, Trump mocked New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski over his physical handicap while defending his incredible claim that ‘thousands’ of Muslims in New Jersey celebrated after the collapse of the World Trade Center.
“Now the poor guy — you ought to see the guy,” Trump said at the time while wildly gyrating his arms to imitate the unusual angle at which the reporter’s hand sometimes rests.
Kovaleski suffers from a chronic condition which limits the movement of his arms. Okay, Conway, we just looked at what is in Donald Trump’s alleged heart again and it’s not pretty. And while Trump mocked the reporter’s physical disability, his supporters at the rally cheered.
A president does not act in this manner. Decent people do not mock those with disabilities. We shouldn’t even have to explain that.
