At the Golden Globes awards on Sunday, Meryl Street decided to use her time not to talk about her career, but to attack The Donald.
“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. The key word is “appeared,” as Trump didn’t do that at all. The mannerisms he used in mocking Kovaleski are mannerisms he’s mocked countless others with for years.
It’s obvious that Hollywood as a whole is out of touch – but they’re not all clueless. As the Young Cons report:
Appearing on the Fox Business Channel, Scott Baio let out a long belly laugh when asked to respond to Meryl Streep‘s claim that Hollywood actors and actresses are vilified and persecuted.
“We have the best lives of anybody,” Baio said, once he stopped laughing. “We’re not vilified. It’s absurd.”
He went on to point out that Hollywood moonbats have been “crucifying President-elect [Donald] Trump for so long now,” characterizing Streep’s assertion as “insulting” and “not very intelligent.”
“I didn’t have a choice, I had to give [President Barack] Obama a chance eight years ago,” he said. “These people, these Hollywood liberals, won’t even give Trump a chance.”
Now if only we could hear more from celebrities like this!
