Meryl Streep called out Donald Trump at the Golden Globes. … Hollywood Just Does Not Get That They Live in LA LA LAND, Not the Real World … Trump Responded Calling Her ‘Over-Rated’
AWE, THOSE POOR HOLLYWOOD TYPES IN THEIR DESIGNER DRESSES AND JEWELS …
Meryl Streep took the opportunity at last night’s Golden Globe awards, another opportunity for the privileged to get together and reward themselves, to go after president-elect Donald trump. Yawn, this is getting real old. But what else would you expect from Hollywood and all the people who in the room were still in mourning?Believe it or not, the out of touch actress also stated that Hollywood and the media were victims as she stated, “You and all of us in this room really belong to the most vilified segments in American society right now. Think about it: Hollywood, foreigners and the press.” Just how out of touch can one possibly be?
Meryl Streep went after Trump for his comments to a disables reporter. Hmm, you know what was conspicuous by her actions and solemn plea … where was her compassion and caring for the white, special needs, mentally disabled man who was tortured by 4 blacks and broadcast on Facebook Live? Or where was her outrage when Barack Obama made fun of Special Olympics? Yeah I know, it’s Hollywood … crickets. The double standard in Hollywood is despicable and reason number 42.9 why America rose up and elected Donald trump.
It’s no secret that Hollywood skews liberal, and there were probably few Donald Trump fans in the audience at Sunday’s Golden Globes. And while the awards show kicked off with a few jokes at the president-elect’s expense, Meryl Streep took an incredibly serious tone when addressing the recent presidential election.
Streep accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award — basically a lifetime achievement award — but didn’t say much about her career. Instead, she spent the minutes allotted to her to speak critically of the current political climate and Trump, although she didn’t mention the president-elect by name.
“There was one performance this year that stunned me,” she said. “It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good. There was nothing good about it. But it was effective, and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh and show their teeth.
“It was that moment when 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. It kind of broke my heart when I saw it. I still can’t get it out of my head because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life.”
Streep was referring to Trump’s remarks during the campaign, when he appeared to mock New York Times reporter Serge F. Kovaleski, who has arthrogryposis, which visibly limits the functioning of his joints.
“And this instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, ’cause it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing,” the actress said.
UPDATE I: Kellyanne Conway told “Fox and Friends” Monday that she’s “concerned that somebody with a platform like Meryl Streep’s is inciting people’s worst instincts.”
