Reacting to Streep's speech, Donald Trump has called the actress "over-rated".
The award-winning actress condemned Trump for mocking a disabled New York Times reporter in 2015 and offered a politically charged speech.

American actor George Clooney showed his support for Streep while speaking to American entertainment magazine Us Weekly at the release of Netflix documentary short "The White Helmets" in London on Monday.
“I believe he said she's overrated? Well, I've always said that about Meryl. She's one of, if not the most, overrated actress of all time. She and I worked together and played husband and wife in [2009's] Fantastic Mr. Fox. Even as a female fox, she was overrated. I believe that". Clooney told the publication.
“But seriously, aren't you supposed to be running the country?”
He also express his fears about the president-elect.
“Look: I didn't vote for him, I don't support him and I don't think he's the right choice. But we have to hope that he doesn't destroy everything.”
Meanwhile Piers Morgan called Streep’s speech hypocritical. In an article he wrote in the Daily Mail, the journalist acknowledged the actress was one of the greatest actresses in history at the same time stating that her anti-Trump speech was one of the worst performances of her career.
