Meryl Streep gave Donald Trump a serve at the Moulden Globs. Which surprised nobody at all. However, even some of her allies on the left think that she went a bit too far with the line that Hollywooders “belong to the most vilified segments in American society right now. ”
While everyone in the room may have loved and applauded her, response elsewhere was less enthusiastic.
“Streep is right now playing her most demanding role yet: Singlehandedly winning Trump a second term. Thanks Meryl,” agreed Seth Mandel, the op-ed editor at the New York Post.
Well, yes. And God help The Donald if he dares speculate on standing for a third time, eh?
I went off Meryl Streep about thirty years ago, so any vow I make today to never sit through (let alone buy a ticket to) one of her movies would be pretty fake. But it is interesting to see what she regards as the entertainments of the deplorables.
“Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners and if you kick them all out, you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which,” she explained to the applause and laughter of the audience “are not the arts.”
Who needs to be kicked out of Hollywood?
Weren’t all the true artistes LEAVING???
