Not long after U.S. president-elect Donald Trump tweeted that Meryl Streep is an "overrated" actress and "Hillary lover," Chris Evert more or less used one of his debate-time tropes against him, tweeting, in part, "wrong again."
Evert opined that "empathy and grace" are key to Streep's longevity and her standing in American culture.
NO.... Meryl Streep the Greatest actress of all time... A person with empathy and grace. Someone we all look up to and respect...wrong again https://t.co/lZjgMWRlFQ— Chris Evert (@ChrissieEvert) January 9, 2017
It wasn't the first time that Evert had sharp words for Trump in a tweet. "Get over it," she said one short month ago about his ongoing, largely tweet-based skirmishes with next to anyone and everyone.
That's the Ice Queen: She doesn't miss when making an authoritative backhand shot. Question is, how long until PEOTUS Trump reacts to her on Twitter?
For those thinking he won't do so, remember that this is the man who gave Saturday Night Live the best free press of its more-than-40-year existence and name-dropped Rosie O'Donnell during a general election debate.
