On Sunday, Streep used her platform as the winner of this year’s Cecil B. DeMille Award to slam the president-elect for his treatment of New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski, who has a congenital joint condition.

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 head because it wasn’t a movie, it was real life.”
