Meryl Streep – Uses Her Platform At The Golden Globes To Attack Donald Trump
If you watched the Golden Globes last night you saw Meryl Streep give a moving speech – “Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.” The speech had mix reviews in the public sphere … most claiming it hypocritical and selfish (speaking to her celebrity friends).
Well it didn’t take long for Meryl’s disrespectful attack on Donald Trump to invite the President-elect to disrespect her. He went to twitter, his favorite app, and gave this response – “Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes. She is a…..”
So did Meryl Streep get her point across or is she part of the problem?
Further, Trump did go on a rant to defend himself, blaming Hillary Clinton and the dishonest media – “Hillary flunky who lost big. For the 100th time, I never “mocked” a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him……. “groveling” when he totally changed a 16 year old story that he had written in order to make me look bad. Just more very dishonest media!”
