After accepting an award at the Golden Globes last night, actress Meryl Streep once again lectured America about the evils of Donald Trump.
In an explosive six-minute speech on Sunday night, Streep did not hold back as she went after Trump for mocking disabled reporter Serge Kovaleski in November of 2015 during a campaign rally.
“That instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in a public platform, it filters down into everyone’s life because it gives permission for others to do the same,” said Streep in front of a audience packed full of Hollywood A-listers.
“Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence. When the powerful use their position to bully others we all lose.”
Streep, of course, rambled on about disrespect while she was disrespecting Donald Trump, so apparently self-awareness is a rarity in Hollywood. I do enjoy the last line, however, since most of her co-conspirators have been using their powerful positions to bully voters and electors into denying Trump the presidency. A pox on all of them.
