WASHINGTON D.C. (AP) — A top aide to Donald Trump says actress Meryl Streep should have supported the president-elect instead of denouncing him from the stage of the Golden Globes.
Kellyanne Conway told “Fox and Friends” Monday she’s “concerned that somebody with a platform like Meryl Streep’s is inciting people’s worst instincts.”
Streep did not mention Trump by name – but she criticized the president-elect’s “performance” as a presidential candidate, especially his apparent mocking of a disabled New York Times reporter during the campaign. Trump has denied the claim.
He fired back on Twitter that Streep, who backed Democrat Hillary Clinton, is an “over-rated” actress.
Conway says of Streep: “I really wish she would have stood up last night and said, ‘I didn’t like the election results but he is our president and we’re going to support him.'”
