Transcript for Donald Trump Reacts to Meryl Streep's Golden Globes Speech
Turned out to be a big newsmaking night. Meryl Streep making headlines with that speech taking on Donald Trump and the president-elect is lashing back in just the last few minutes so let's get right to it with Jon Karl. Let me start with what Streep had to say. It stunned me. It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good, it was -- there's nothing good about it. But it was effective and it did its job. 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. And Jon Karl, the president-elect up early on Twitter. Reporter: He sure is. Taking -- going to war with Hollywood's most celebrated actress. George, he went on a Twitter firestorm here. Take a look. It starts Meryl Streep, one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood. Doesn't know me but attacked last night at the golden globes. She is a Hillary flunky who lost big. For the 100th time I never mocked a disabled reporter. Would never do that but simply showed him 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. And, George, it wasn't just the tweets, sometime overnight trump actually interviewed with "The New York Times" a short interview making pretty much the exact same points that he never mocked a disabled reporter. He says and saying that Hillary -- that Meryl Streep is basically just a Hillary flunky. Calling out saying it's an example of the dishonest media. We'll show one of those times Donald Trump engaged in this behavior and show you the speech right now. Now the poor guy. I don't know what I said, I don't remember. He's going like I don't remember. Maybe that's what I said. This is 14 years ago. They didn't do a retraction. Jon, this is serge Kovaleski of "The New York Times." He has a condition that limits the movement in his joints. That was seen very clearly by most people as an effort to mock the way he appeared. Trump from the start denied he was doing that. This all goes back to a story by the way about whether or not there were muslims cheering in New Jersey following the attacks on September 11th. Kovaleski had a story that trump said proved that point. Kovaleski his story did no such thing. Okay, Jon Karl, thanks very much. Quite a moment. Even though she never said his name you knew who she was talking about.
