Kellyanne Conway, a key adviser to President-elect Trump, defended his behavior by saying that journalists should “look at what’s in his heart.”

Chris Cuomo, host of CNN’s “New Day”, called out Trump for mocking a disabled New York Times reporter during one of his 2015 rallies. But Conway argued that wasn’t the case.

This incident resurfaced last night during the Golden Globe award when Meryl Streep called out Donald Trump during her speech.

“That is not what he did and he has said that 1,000 times,” she said Monday morning. “Why can’t you give him the benefit of the doubt?”

Cuomo pointed out, “He can say it a million times but look at the video… he’s making a disgusting gesture on video.”

“Why is everything taken at face value?” Conway asked. “You can’t give him the benefit of the doubt on this and he’s telling you what was in his heart, you always want to go with what’s come out of his mouth rather than look at what’s in his heart.”

Meryl Streep disagrees.

“The person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter, someone he outranked in privilege, power, and the capacity to fight back,” Streep said in her speech. “It kind of broke my heart.”

As usual, Trump took to Twitter to respond to Streep.
