'I didn't hear Meryl Streep give a shout out to the mentally challenged boy tortured on Facebook'
Incoming White House adviser Kellyanne Conway has joined President-elect Donald Trump's counterattack on Meryl Streep by arguing that if the actress was such an advocate for the disabled, she should have stood up for the special needs man subjected to Torture in video posted on Facebook.
Streep caused a sensation on the airwaves and online when she delivered a blistering speech against Trump while accepting an award at the Golden Globes Sunday night, where she slammed Trump for mocking New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski in 2015 at a campaign rally.
'That instinct to humiliate, when it's modeled by someone in a public platform, it filters down into everyone's life because it gives permission for others to do the same,' Streep said.
Conway appeared Monday morning on 'Fox and Friends,' and joined President-elect Trump in hitting back at Streep.
'I'm glad Meryl Streep has such a passion for the disabled because I didn't hear her weigh in or I didn't even hear her use her platform last night ... to give a shout out to the mentally challenged boy who last week was tortured live on Facebook for half an hour, by four young African-American adults who were screaming racial and anti-Trump expletives and forcing him to put his head in toilet water,' she said.
