Meryl Streep Knocks Out President-Elect Trump In One Big Golden Globes Acceptance Speech

Many have called this one, the hottest moment of the night, and it all belongs to the grande dame of acting, Meryl Streep. Let’s paint the vivid scene; it’s Sunday evening in Hollywood, and acting’s elite have gathered. The 2017 Golden Globes awards show is being hosted by Jimmy Fallon. The popular late night TV host got in a couple of swift jabs to President-elect Donald Trump but didn’t spend too much time trying to harpoon one of Hollywood’s least favorite people on the planet these days.

 

When actress Viola Davis introduced the winner of this Golden Globe’s annual Cecil B. DeMille award, all eyes turned to Meryl Streep. The longtime veteran of the silver screen graciously accepted her prestigious Golden Globes statue and then began a fiery speech. Her words had most of the room applauding wildly, and she was unafraid to go where most of her peers had failed to venture.

 

Streep never once mentioned President-elect Trump by name, but she skewered him with her words, knocking him down for the count. Streep mentioned his “performance,” when he allegedly mimicked a disabled news reporter at a Trump rally.

 

“It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can’t get it out my head because it wasn’t in a movie, it was in real life,” Streep said. She went on, asking for the media to stand up to Trump, because “Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence.”

 

Her notable speech can be watched here on YouTube.

 

The moment became a huge one for ratings, according to Forbes.com. The numbers tell the story, as the telecast averaged 20 million viewers. That’s pretty impressive and up 1.5 million, or 8-percent, from last year.

 

Meantime, President-elect Trump had his own words for Meryl Streep, “over-rated.”

Meryl Streep Gets Some Grievances Off Her Chest At The Golden Globes

All of Hollywood’s royalty was gathered for the 2017 Golden Globe awards on Sunday night. However, when you get so many a-listers together, anything can happen. Take for instance Meryl Streep. She took the opportunity to spew a bit of venom at the president-elect Donald J. Trump.

 

When Streep was called to the platform to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award., she took the time to get personal about her feelings about the new president. She stated that Hollywood was crawling with both outside and foreigners. If they are all asked to leave this country, her fear is there will be nothing left to watch, except for football and mixed martial arts, which doesn’t entertain her.

 

The crowd applauded her words, but the mood suddenly changed when tears filled her eyes. Streep went on to say how upset she was that someone who wanted the highest office in the land would make fun of a disabled person. She made her feelings for the upcoming president well known. She couldn’t believe what she was seeing or hearing. To her, it was the most inexcusable act possible from a politician of any kind.

 

As we all know by now, Trump isn’t going to take that lying down. He took to Twitter to hash out all his problems with Streep’s speech. He said that she was a bringing up old stories that the media got wrong in the first place. He further tweeted that the disabled man twisted a story to make him look bad. Because two wrongs always equal a right, right?

 

Streep has many Golden Globes and Oscar nominations under her belt from her more than 40 years in the business. She has long been called one of the finest actresses of our times. Her reputation proceeds her. Some say her speech was inappropriate while others are praising her for her moxie. She shows that people are upset about the new administration and will continue to push for change.
