Happy Monday. It’s a snow day, I’ve had 2 shots of espresso, and I’m full of piss and vinegar. Let’s lean into this.
The AFC Championship of Hollywood was last night and Meryl Streep ran out of fucks to give.
Without naming Trump, Streep referenced a 2015 incident when the President-elect appeared to mock a disabled reporter during a rally. In a phone interview this morning with the New York Times, Trump said, “People keep saying I intended to mock the reporter’s disability, as if Meryl Streep and others could read my mind, and I did no such thing. And remember, Meryl Streep introduced Hillary Clinton at her convention, and a lot of these people supported Hillary.” The President-elect also described Streep as ‘a Hillary lover’.”
Dude, ya did. We all know you did. We see you, jackass.
Trump then took his full time job on Twitter to do what he’s best at: airing his particular brand of diplomacy:
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…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 9, 2017
Hillary flunky who lost big. For the 100th time, I never "mocked" a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him…….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 9, 2017
"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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 9, 2017
Mr. Trump, ever being the optimist, is confident that celebrities and others would be out in large numbers for his inauguration.
“We are going to have an unbelievable, perhaps record-setting turnout for the inauguration, and there will be plenty of movie and entertainment stars. All the dress shops are sold out in Washington. It’s hard to find a great dress for this inauguration.”
See you in Washington, Trump. I brought my own dress.
