Meryl Streep Takes Aim at Donald Trump Once Again During Human Rights Campaign Gala 2017 Speech

Meryl Streep continues to call out Donald Trump.

The 67-year-old actress addressed the President again while accepting an award during the 2017 Human Rights Campaign Greater New York Gala at Waldorf Astoria Hotel on Saturday evening (February 11) in New York City.

“We should not be surprised that fundamentalists, of every stripe, are exercised and fuming. We should not be surprised that these profound changes come at a steeper cost than we originally thought,” Meryl said (via THR). “If we live through this precarious moment, if his catastrophic instinct to retaliate doesn’t lead us to nuclear winter, we will have much to thank our current leader for. He will have woken us up to how fragile freedom is. The whip of the executive, through a Twitter feed, can lash and intimidate, punish and humiliate, delegitimize the press and imagined enemies with spasmodic regularity and easily provoked predictability.”"

She also referred to Trump calling her overrated, saying, “Yes, I am the most overrated, overdecorated and, currently, over-berated actress, who likes football, of my generation. But that is why you invited me here! Right?”

In case you forgot, Meryl took aim at him during her celebrated Golden Globes speech last month.

Also pictured below: Seth Meyers, Billy Eichner, Nico Tortorella, Gigi Gorgeous (with Nats Getty), and Carson Kressley.

    These actors are going to learn the hard way that although they are very talented (Trump was stupid for suggesting otherwise) no one cares about their politics. At the end of the day Meryl supports child molesters. You have no moral high ground nor do any Polanski or Allen apologists.

    And here you are posting that no one cares in JJ. Ha ha ha. And you are making up lies you Trumpette. People all over are going to keep speaking out about Trump. Get used to it, or keep throwing your tiny little Trump tantrums.

    Bravo Meryl!

    And who cares about your politics or opinions? These celebrities also have a right to express their opinions and since they have a lot of influence, can help to change things for the better. If you can talk bullshit on the internet, so can they.

    Oh Meryl!

    1. Where did I say they couldn’t have an opinion? It’s the fact they are ALWAYS stating it, even during interviews of their movies. Their job is too act not talk politics, talk about the craft. 2. If you are listening to actors (who mostly didn’t go to college and some didn’t finish high school) I feel bad for you. You must be a dumb fuck if you can’t educate yourself and think for yourself. 3. You still didn’t address the fact she supports CHILD MOLESTERS but is lecturing us on morals. It’s called hypocritical and you can’t deny it which is why you skirted the issue. Meryl is a child molester lover so 🀐

  • Cooper

    She also, without naming names. mentioned the word “evil,” The “E” word is being dropped with increasing regularity these days, from all corners. Is our new president the embodiment of evil? Is Hillary Clinton? Is Steve Bannon? Was Dick Cheney? Hitler was, right? Was Harry Truman for deciding to incinerate a few hundred thousand innocent people in an afternoon? Are we as a nation slipping down a path toward unmitigated evil? Have we been evil all along. as the jihadists claim? Or are they evil? Or are we all, in one way or another? Anyway, this song is a meditation on one form of what I would call evil. It is one that I and many others, including Mr. Trump, have had a hard time resisting. Maybe you see yourself in there somewhere … https://soundcloud.com/biff-thuringer/devils-cry
