Like any good Hollywood libtard, Meryl Streep used her moment on stage to trash Donald Trump and all the Americans who voted for him.
While accepting her lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes on Sunday, Streep attacked Trump over what she said are his views on foreigners and the press.
“So Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners, and if we kick them all out, you’ll have nothing left to watch but football and mixed martial arts,” said the actress, in a clear elitist jab at “Middle America.”
She went on to regurgitate the ridiculous claims that Trump is going to deport all foreign-born Americans and revoke freedom of the press.
Crying her eyes out
Streep said Trump’s victory had left her “screaming in lamentation,” and that she had literally cried over the fact he will be our next president.
Well, now she’s got something else to cry about, too.
Streep’s little rant did NOT go over well with conservatives. You know, that entire half of our country that voted Trump into the White House. That enormous sector of society that buys at least half the tickets for those movies Streep stars in.
And insulting conservatives from inside her privileged glass bubble could hurt her future movie prospects.
“You got to love watching leftist Hollywood actors who don’t live in reality lecture us on politics,” said Twitter user Jack Murphy.

Conservative commentator Laura Ingraham summed up just how tired everyone is of liberal Hollywood elites trying to tell us who to vote for:
“Actress Meryl Streep uses her Lifetime Achievement Award speech to bash @realDonaldTrump. How imaginative! How creative!Yawn.”

Murphy and Ingraham were far from alone. A flood of negative criticism for Streep poured in on social media.
