Donald Trump overrated After her Golden Globe acceptance speech, Meryl Streep was the latest person to be called “overrated” by President-elect Donald Trump. But before her, there were many others who fell victim–some were even called the “O” word more than once. Barack Obama “Barack Obama is not who you think he is. Most overrated politician in Us history.” Tweeted Oct. 15, 2012 Karl Rove “Donald Trump on Mark Levin: Karl Rove is one of the most overrated people in politics” Tweeted Feb. 24, 2013 Jerry Seinfeld “@kanikagahlaut: Can anyone explain why @JerrySeinfeld is so unfunny on twitter and @realDonaldTrump is so funny? »

It’s not easy to get Donald Trump‘s stamp of approval.
Trump fired back at Meryl Streep on Monday after he became the unnamed subject of her passionate Golden Globes speech about empathy. In response, Trump called her “one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood.”
But Streep — who just notched her 30th Golden Globe nomination this year, making her the most celebrated actress in its history — is not the first person to be dubbed “overrated” by the president-elect. The actress joins the likes of Barack Obama, Jon Stewart and the entire cast of Hamilton.

Tucker Carlson, the conservative pundit who joined Fox News to anchor an early-evening hour just a few weeks ago, is now being primed for even bigger things: He has been named to replace Megyn Kelly in the network’s 9 p.m. hour starting January 9.

Representatives for the popular anchor and for Fox News Channel could not be reached for immediate comment.
Under a new deal, which was announced Tuesday, Kelly will join NBC News later in 2017, and will anchor what NBC billed as “a new one hour daytime program that she will develop closely with NBC News colleagues.” The show is expected to air Monday through Friday at a time to be announced in coming months.
