Meryl Streep was literally in tears at the Golden Globes as she recalled Donald Trump’s taunting of a disabled journalist.
But where was she when Barack Obama did something very similar? Oh, that’s right, her liberal Hollywood double standard makes that irrelevant.
Never mind that it has been pointed out that Trump’s hand gesturing to the reporter in question was how he taunts everyone, in any situation.
He wasn’t making fun of the man’s disability. But liberals have run with that narrative, and it has paid off.
However, as usual, they ignore even more serious insults coming from their own side of the aisle.
In a 2009 appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Obama very clearly disparaged all who train and take part in the Special Olympics.
The Special Olympics are the premier sporting event for disabled persons.
When asked how he had done in during a recent visit to the White House bowling alley, Obama said he had scored a 129.
Leno scoffed jokingly, to which Obama responded, “It was like Special Olympics or something,” as he chuckled.
Well, Mr. President (not much longer, thank God), the Special Olympics are not a joke. And neither are the athletes who train very hard to compete in them.
But this isn’t about Obama. It’s about the Hollywood liberal elite like Meryl Streep who give a pass to Obama for such offensive language, but will misconstrue every word out of Trump’s mouth to push their agenda.
