Meryl Streep Slammed Trump In Hollywood…Trump Team Fights Back In A YUGE Way!

Meryl Streep is an award-winning actress. The long-time star was honored at the Golden Globes award ceremony as she received the Cecil B. Demille award for lifetime achievement in acting. A classy and classic response to receiving such an award would have been to thank all of the people that worked with Streep over the years to help her achieve her success. But she chose not to do that.

Streep made headlines throughout the liberal media for choosing to use her acceptance speech as a platform for attacking President-elect Donald Trump.

She claimed that as members of Hollywood, foreigners and the press, they are now all part of the most vilified groups in America. Streep called out stars throughout the audience who were born or raised in countries other than the United States. Without them, she quipped, everyone would be left to watch “martial arts.”

She spoke of the performance of President-elect Donald Trump as something that broke her heart, asserting that Trump has an “instinct to humiliate” especially with regard to a gesture Trump made during the campaign with regard to a journalist with a disability. She called on the “principled press” to hold Trump accountable.

Trump responded via Twitter on Monday claiming that Streep is an over-rated actress who attacked him. He asserted the reporter about whom Streep spoke was not being mocked by Trump for his disability. Rather, Trump argued that he was calling the reporter out for groveling and changing a story to make Trump look bad during the campaign.

Trump adviser and former campaign chairperson Kellyanne Conway responded to Streep’s comments on Fox News.

My initial reaction is I’m glad Meryl Streep has such a passion for the disabled, because I didn’t hear her weigh in and I didn’t hear her even use her platform last night…to give a shout-out to the mentally challenged boy who last week was tortured live on Facebook for half an hour by four young African American adults who were screaming racial and anti-Trump expletives and forcing him to put his head in toilet water,” Conway calmly commented. “So, I’d like to hear from her today if she wants to come and continue her platform on behalf of the disabled.”

I mean, isn’t that how the liberals and Hollywood operate always?” Conway continued. “They do nothing but become offended, especially on such a non-story as Trump and that reporter (which was taken completely out of context), and then utilize that to preach and talk down to normal Americans like it is their moral duty.”
