Donald Trump Calls Meryl Streep 'Excellent' & a 'Fine Person' in Resurfaced Interview

Donald Trump has been slamming Meryl Streep, calling her “the most over-rated actress,” after her powerful speech at the 2017 Golden Globes referenced him.

An old interview from August of 2015 just surfaced, where the 70-year-old President-elect praised Meryl, calling her “excellent,” and a “fine person.”

In the interview, Donald was asked if there are any actresses he loves. “Julia Roberts is terrific, and many others. Meryl Streep is excellent; she’s a fine person, too. The problem is I’ll name three or four or five and then the hundred that I know will be insulted, and I don’t mean to insult them,” Donald told THR.

It looks like Donald has changed his tune.

    He’s so ridiculous it’s almost unbelievable how childish he is.. suddenly she’s over-rated because she disagrees with his outrageous behaviour and he’s so butthurt.. it’s really funny :D Waiting here for Trump supporters.. come on.. I wanna see how all of you are going to defend him… 3 2 1!

    It’s not that hard to understand when you know the criteria for Narcissistic Personality Disorder; his arrested development and vernacular is that of a 12 year old. No worries, when he eff’s up for the umpteen time his own party will impeach him. Not presidential in the least.

  • Mrs. Freeze

    When Trump is hurt he gets angry and when he gets angry he gets vengeful.
    He’s an international embarrassment.

  • Esoteric11

    They can’t, so they make up stories and blame liberals for everything.

  • Phil the Donahue

    A whittle boy. Who knew he was such a baby brat.

  • Do Tell

    The Donald is a master manipulator.

  • Mercyneal

    Streep gave a standing ovation to child molester Roman Polanski some years ago. Also, Streep is an alum of the idiotic Vassar College, which I am embarrassed to say I also graduated from. This past Thanksgiving the idiotic interim Vassar president Jon Chenette bashed Trump in his “Thanksgiving message.” Streep is a blithering idiot

  • Mercyneal

    And you don’t think actresses like Streep don’t have narcissistic disorder? I’ve met her. Talk about being full of herself. As a fellow alum of Vassar College I am mortified by Streep’s increasing self centered rants

  • Mercyneal

    Um no

  • Mercyneal

    You blame conservatives for everything.

  • Mercyneal

    Meryl Streep is also white, sport. Also why didn’t she denounce the four black people who attacked the White Trump supporter? Waiting for your answer, pal

  • Nova

    Troll, I think you are overdue for your therapy session.

  • Juan Cocco

    lying ass bitch lmaoooooo

  • Shelby

    Who cares what she thinks? Another out of touch celeb. Conservatives were hugely disappointed many times before but NEVER acted the way Liberals are now. And make no mistake… some Presidents have been really disappointing because of their terrible policies. Yet, we tolerated for agonizing terms. Grow up. Show some class

  • Shelby

    He’s not perfect. I wish he would stop the tweets. But he knows economics better than any liberal will ever hope to.
    Our country needs to put our people back to work. How many recent college grads do u know that are still waitressing because they can’t find a job ? I know many!
    Companies need to keep jobs in this country and hire Americans. “America first” is not racist. It’s common sense. This is the United States of America. Not the United States of the World. No other country hurts their own to bend over backwards for illegal immigrants like we do. It’s infuriating and stupid.

  • John Dow

    Why don’t you post a video showing Meryl Streep giving a pedophile, child molester and a rapist Roman Polanski a standing ovation in 2003? Ohh, wait… you can’t, it doesn’t fit your agenda and narrative.

  • Wafa MohammedSharif

    umm… what? What does this got to do with Trump’s reaction?

  • Wafa MohammedSharif

    I think you missed the point of this post John. It’s about Trump not Meryl Streep… Just wanted to clarify that

    LOL. She’s clearly one of the most vile cvnts on the planet. Hope she dies soon.

  • Veronika

    Um yes

  • Veronika

    Obviously HE does :D

  • Do Tell

    Yes, Donald Trump does care. He’s very aware of himself. He’s sociable and those types desire attention from other people. Because the highly respected Meryl Streep said the words, it likely bothered him and he came back with a nasty attack.

  • Do Tell

    Problem is the country is very different now. An economist said job problem is mostly because of automation & computers taking over jobs. What took 25 employees to do years ago, now can be done by only a few. And so many people went back to school and got degrees. You have to really stand out from the rest of the pack. Work service jobs such as nursing & be mgmt, supervisors, CEOs, etc. Can everybody do those jobs? No. Most ppl are probably not cut out for those high-level, high-paying positions.

    Another economist said Trump’s best bet at creating jobs is repairing infrastructure (bridges, roads) … but that money comes from the govt. And we’re trying to get out of debt.

    However, I heard that one way Trump may try to pay for infrastructure is to get big companies to “go in together” to help pay for these projects. To do that, he’s going to have to give them something really great in return.

    A relative said good luck with the lower tax rates. He said we already did that before and corporations mostly got greedier instead of thinking about the people. We should expect some jobs from that, but maybe not enough.

    There is a reason why Trump will be president. Time will tell if it’s for good (I hope) or for bad. I can’t wait to see what happens.

  • Oh Snarky Me

    She didn’t disagree with him–she attacked him personally on national television. While I don’t agree with him tweeting anything in response, can you honestly say that if someone attacked you on national tv that you wouldn’t have something negative to say back? People’s actions and behaviors can make you change your opinion of them.

    If he wanted American to be first, I don’t suppose he would be giving thousands of jobs to those running his foreign concerns or having them make products that are sold under his name and his daughter’s. As much as he maligns China, he and his daughter does an awful lot of business with them. I’d like Trump to do what he says about the economy, he certainly has a better economy to start with than Obama did.

    You claim he knows more about economics than any liberal. Why, because he told you so? The list of things that he knows better than anyone else is endless, according to HIM. There are far richer businessmen, some liberals; do you mean to say Trump knows more than them? By the way, they, unlike Trump, don’t have to tell people every five minutes how rich or how smart they are.

    Donald Trump doesn’t speak as someone who is truly educated on the subject of economics or many other things. He just says whatever comes to mind. He’s had more failed businesses than successful. The only truly successful business is the one his father left him along with millions of dollars. The man was selling steaks out of the Sharper Image stores. How dumb is that? He recently had to pay $25 million dollars for that Trump University scam. He didn’t even know what a Blind Trust was, even after it was explained to him. He’s a consummate conman, not an educated businessman.

    When he proposed the tax changes, he basically made a recipe for the deficit to increase threefold. Real economists said so. He knows what the people he pays, who are knowledgeable, tell him. Like the guy who does his taxes said, “Trump doesn’t understands the tax laws. I do his taxes and he signs it.”

    I don’t like the man, I think he’s all kinds of dishonest and sleazy, but I’d congratulate him if he does what he says he will do to bring jobs back to America; including bringing his own foreign operations back. Manufacturing built this country and it’s what could sustain it. Right now though, he’s too busy being butt hurt about everything anyone says negative about him. He needs to grow a pair and do the job he claims he can do. Putting a stop to social media would help.

    Political figures, especially presidents get taken to task about what they do and say all the time and it’s done publicly via mass media. Why should Trump be any different. If you don’t think Obama and Bush got it, you haven’t been paying attention.

    I don’t recall either of them taking to social media to rant and engage in name calling. He’s the president elect, not your average Joe; he ought to have more control and dignity.

    Just like other political figures, he’s going to get a lot of that in the next 4 years, he should have better things to do than run after every negative comment. After Jan. 20, he’ll be wasting our tax dollars and time by engaging in such behavior.
