"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."
"It kind of broke my heart when I saw it and I still can't get it out of my head because it wasn't in a movie, it was real life,"
Meryl's comments were a reference to a rally by Trump in November 2015 when he imitated New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski, who suffers from a congenital joint condition.
President had criticized Serge for his stammer voice and mocked him.

By resembling all the increasing controversies of President Trump, people are starting to call him a loud mouth and he always proves that to be true. Likewise, how would Trump keep his mouth shut after listening to Meryl's criticizing speech?
So, Trump fired back in a series of tweets the next morning. He tweeted saying Meryl is an overrated actress. Trump's tweets are listed below;
