VIDEO: Meryl Streep Slams Donald Trump in Powerful Golden Globes 2017 Cecil B DeMille Speech

Meryl Streep slammed Donald Trump in her powerful speech for the Cecil B DeMille Award at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards.

“Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners, and if you kick us all out, you’ll have nothing to watch except for football and mixed martial arts, which are not arts,” Meryl said in her speech.

“There was nothing good about it, but it did its job,” Meryl said during the speech, referencing Donald‘s mocking of disabled reporter Serge Kovaleski. “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. That instinct to humiliate when it’s modeled by someone in a public platform, it filters down into everyone’s life because it gives permission for others to do the same.”

“Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence,” Meryl added. “When the powerful use their position to bully others we all lose…We need the principled press to hold power to account, to call them on the carpet for every outrage … We’re going to need them going forward and they’re going to need us to safeguard the truth.”

    Disrespect invite disrespect. Sounds to me like she is disrespecting our future president. Sounds to me like she is abusing her position as an actress receiving an award using it as a platform to discuss her political beliefs. Shame on you

  • CandyAppleRed13

    Coming from someone who probably voted Trump talking about disrespect and abuse. Lmao. She slammed that orange piece of shit. Get over it.

  • danastev924

    WTF? Where was she during the primaries when Bernie supporters were denied the right to vote?? She probably could give two $hits.

  • Veronika

    She spoke THE TRUTH! ..and every single person who’s not touched by this speech and makes fun of it or disagrees with it or says the same thing you just wrote here simply isn’t a good person and a decent human being. It’s really that simple. Trump is a racist bigot, baby in the body of unbelievably ugly ”man”. He doesn’t deserve any respect and that’s a fact. When was the last time he was respectful to someone who simply doesn’t agree with him? Ha? If that kind of a ”person” (asshole/monster are more suitable) becomes a president, you have to admit that something just isn’t right in that country. Wait till’ he’s going to make many enemies in the whole world because of what he is and what he represents.. everyone here in Europe and I believe also rest of the world (not sure about Russia and North Korea though) thinks the same – people who voted for him are either crazy / white trash / racists / bigots / people full of hate / you name it.. If you’re an American you’re gonna be ashamed because of him in a while.. hopefully.

  • John Dow

    Bla-bla-bla… i’m Meryl Streep, i’m irrelevant, liberal, attention whore who doesn’t give a fuck about this country, but i will use Trump’s name to get attention from the liberal and social media. My whining won’t help to unite this country, it only helps to divide it even more, but i don’t give a fuck about it, i want another 15 minutes of fame.

  • Phil the Donahue

    Trump made fun of a disabled person. How is that cool?
    You’re cool with making fun of the disabled?

    Lady move on. USA has a new president and his name is Donald Trump.

  • Phil the Donahue

    Badassery. Only a woman would have the balls to do that. You go!

  • Phil the Donahue

    A whore? Really? Wow, I would hate to be you, it must really, really suck to be you. I’m sorry your parents abused you.

  • Phil the Donahue

    And yet, here you are…..

  • Phil the Donahue

    Pretty sure Streep doesn’t need 15 minutes of fame you f-tard. You’re jealous that u aren’t there. I’m sorry your parents verbally abused you. The child abuse in the USA is really bad.

  • Ausangel01

    Phil, he didn’t call her a Whore. If you read what he said he called her an attention whore which is completely different.

    To seek attention through inappropriate means or to an excessive degree.

    Wow what a reply! Lol, try harder next time.

    He didn’t know that guy was disabled.

    All of your replies are weak and pathetic. How old are you anyway?

  • William C. Hardy

    Au contraire mon ami! We who will be trampled by the orange moron are going to need the entertainment industry to speak up, speak the truth, and the press to do the same. This future president has done nothing to make, at least me, respect him one little bit. The ‘shame’ belongs to you JEN. If what Meryl Streep said did not resonate with you, then you either have no idea what is going on, or are as much of a moron as he is. By the way, I do not use his name. To me, he is #dontee, the ruler of #donteesinferno

  • Conte435

    Isn’t it great that we can be lectured to by Meryl Streep, a women with the moral compass to give Roman Polanki a standing ovation at 2003 Oscars, one of the few who did.

    Because really when think of someone to praise, isn’t a rich and powerful man that fled U.S to get out of serving time for the conviction of anally rapping a 13 year old on top of everyone’s list.

  • FerCat

    ‘principled press’ Lol!
    Obama slammed the media press for being biased, Trump slammed the media press for being biased.

    There’s bipartisan understanding that the ‘principled press’ does not exist.

    They’re just a bunch of fucking ridiculous lying hypocrites, no administration since Richard Nixon’s has gone after the press more than Obama’s and that’s according to NYT’s political reporter. Obama prosecuted reporters for revealing classified information, even though the Press licked Obama’s ass most the time, their subservience still wasn’t enough.

    Where was Merkel Streep when Hillary Clinton’s team were locking reporters in closets probably getting her dumb ass drunk.

    Just like they’re only anti- war if the President is a republican but when Obama and Hillary illegally bombed and overthrew Libya’s government they were silent.
    They all made a big deal about water boarding two terriosts but Obama bragging about all the terrorist he killed with drones, killing their family members including children, this hag and all the rest stay silent.

    Au contraire my ass, who the fuck cares what a bunch of
    privileged blathering sheep regurgitating the same leftist bullshit talking points thinks. Especially a annoying old hack. If the country cared their non stop vilifying of Trump throughout the election would have made that senile granny crook President

    The same people who bemoan how their industry are a bunch of racists and misogynists think they can stand in their glass house throwing stones that they invented out their their ass at the rest of country.

    The same old hag who gave Roman Polanski a child rapists, a standing ovation has to twist, make up shit and vilify the President elect of the country because their candidate lost a election and for some fucked-up reason the least educated, mentally unstable and morally bankrupt profession think they own the country and when they don’t get their way politically that entitles them to make every event into some political leftist rant, even when it’s one of their many circle jerk events.

    President- elect Donald Trump who isn’t even President yet, so I’am not sure what your liberal paranoid mind thinks is going on, is heart broken that you wouldn’t call by his name.

    And for last 8 years we had a Muslim commie golfer in Chief for President you didn’t see the people who didn’t vote for him act like a bunch of fucken dumb snowflakes and rant and rave and protest. But liberals are mentally unfit, so the country doesn’t expect any better from you people.

    Isn’t about time for another fake hate crime to report.

    O didn’t know it’s different standards when you are a liberal, to them there is no contradiction that they have spent the last 2 years disrespecting and calling the President-elect Trump numerous vile names.

    If liberals didn’t believe in double standards they wouldn’t believe in anything.

    Wasn’t she on that list of celebrities, meaning very rich Americans, who promised (voluntarily) to leave the country, once the USA Citizens voted for their new president? Canada would be delighted, Mexico as well..

    All celebrities were campaigning for Clinton? I bet more than half of them in the audience weren’t .,,,and they could have

  • FerCat

    Granted Trump is not the nicest guy in the world, many criticisms about him may well be true. But to totally ignore the enormous damage the Obama administration did to countries like Yemen, Egypt, Libya, Syria, Ukraine renders their argument moot.

    I may not agree with a thing Dump says, but I would defend his right to say it. Dump is entitled to denigrate the disabled reporter, just as everyone of us have the right to speak of his denigration and call it disgusting. I’ll let good people judge which behaviour is in fact disgusting. Sometimes, when something really awful happens, we see clearly what is good.

    To maintain our freedoms, we must always be vigilant and speak out.
