Actress Meryl Streep is SO full of herself as she slammed President again, this time at fundraising gala for the Human Rights Campaign, a national LGBT group.
She first attacked Trump at the Golden Globes in January in a rant that went viral, now again commenting on his response to her January rant in which he referred to her as an ‘overrated’ actress.
From Fox News:
“Yes, I am the most overrated, over-decorated and currently, I am the most over-berated actress … of my generation,” Streep said.
Streep said she wished she could stay at home and “and load the dishwasher” rather than take a podium to speak out adding that “the weight of all these honors” she’s received in her career compelled her to speak out.
She then compared people criticizing her remarks to the ‘Brownshirts’ of Hitler.
“It’s terrifying to put the target on your forehead,” she said. “And it sets you up for all sorts of attacks and armies of brown shirts and bots and worse, and the only way you can do it is if you feel you have to. You have to! You don’t have an option. You have to.”
She even accused Trump of leading us to a nuclear holocaust, “if we live through this precarious moment — if his catastrophic instinct to retaliate doesn’t lead us to nuclear winter.”
Not only might Trump lead us to a nuclear winter, Trump’s twitter criticism is the same as a ‘lash’ and he is trying to steal people’s happiness.
The whip of the executive can, through a Twitter feed, lash and intimidate, punish and humiliate, delegitimize the press and all of the imagined enemies with spasmodic regularity and easily provoked predictability.”
“All of us have the human right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” the actress said.
“If you think people were mad,” Streep said, “when they thought the government was coming after their guns, wait until you see when they try to take away our happiness.”
Time for this woman to retire. Do you agree with her?
