Meryl Streep Calls Out Melania & Ivanka Trump For Silence Over Sexual Misconduct

Meryl Streep did an interview with the New York Times and is calling on the First Lady and First Daughter to speak out about sexual misconduct as part of a larger national conversation.

Meryl was asked about people wanting her to speak out about Harvey Weinstein.

“You make movies. You think you know everything about everybody. So much gossip. You don’t know anything. People are so inscrutable on a certain level. And it’s a shock. Some of my favorite people have been brought down by this, and he’s not one of them,” she responded.

“What do you make of the fact, though, that people are waiting for you to speak?” the New York Times asked.

“I don’t want to hear about the silence of me,” Meryl responded. “I want to hear about the silence of Melania Trump. I want to hear from her. She has so much that’s valuable to say. And so does Ivanka. I want her to speak now.”

    Redirecting blame on someone else is getting pretty predictable. Hollywood should fix Hollywood.

    An answer of a hypocrite. Others should speak up but not her that benefited so much by working with pigs. I don’t buy for a second that she didn’t know HW is a pig. Hollywood is such a small place and clearly everybody else knew.

    last i checked, neither Melania or Ivanka were in the movie business.

    “…and by the way they call that Mr. Weinstein ’The Punisher of Hollywood’. Some 300 lbs fat pig who’s got reported cases on violations against him…”

    Right?? She reminds me of a kid in 4th grade who points the finger at others when he’s the one in trouble.

    These clowns are here to entertain us; nothing more. They are modern day court jesters. Even other jesters are laughing at you merl and dismissing your decades too late outrage.

  • Ausangel01

    Typical response. Don’t blame me, blame EVERYONE ELSE! The story isn’t my silence but the First Lady’s and the First Daughters and blah blah blah…

    You stayed silent on your apparent assault for how many decades with your “good friend” Cher? So nice to know your silence is completely acceptable but not others’.

    Meryl Streep needs to get over herself. She puts to much importance in what she has to say.
