Streep, who gave child rapist Roman Polanski a standing ovation in 2003, accused Trump of mocking a disabled reporter. This has been debunked, but Streep, Streisand, and fellow members of the Hollywood left continue to spew the lie. In an interview while she was getting her teeth cleaned (yes, you read that right), she called Trump’s rebuke of Streep’s comments “disgraceful.”
Streisand told Chris Matthews on “Hardball” that Streep’s comments were beautiful. Babs also said in the video below “and I completely agree with Meryl — it was a heartbreaking moment and so beneath the dignity of the presidency, let alone any respectful person. And what we need more in this world is kindness and common decency, and how he reacts and how he has the need to talk back and insult anybody who doesn’t agree with him, that’s pretty disgraceful.”
Donald Trump had an unlikely ally from this fallout, Piers Morgan. In a hard hitting Op-Ed in the Daily Mail, Morgan actually debunks Streep’s lie about Trump mocking a disabled reporter. More importantly, he pointed out that Streep’s attack probably did more harm than good as it alienated Middle America.
She began by saying that Hollywood, foreigners and the press are ‘the most vilified segments of American society right now’.
At which point the cameras panned out to hundreds of the richest, most privileged people in American society sitting in the audience in their $10,000 tuxedos and $20,000 dresses, loudly cheering this acknowledgement of their dreadful victimhood.
She then said that if all the ‘outsiders and foreigners’ were kicked out of Hollywood, ‘you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.’
I haven’t heard such elitist snobbery since Hillary Clinton branded Trump supporters ‘a basket of deplorables’.
For your information, Ms Streep, tens of millions of ordinary Americans love football and the MMA and would be quite happy watching their favourite sports at the expense of the next Woody Allen film.
Essentially, Streisand joined Streep in the Hollywood echo chamber. The stands these women are taking against average Americans is going to help get Trump re-elected. By further highlighting the hypocrisy of the left, they will continue to alienate Americans who have fallen upon hard times.
But the fact that Streisand and Streep are trying to claim the high road with a call for kindness is absolutely disgusting. Apparently, lying about someone and pushing this lie is kindness. Do these loons expect to get away with their lies? They might have under Obama, but no more!
Babs promised to leave the country if Trump won. When is her flight out of here? Good riddance?
Share this if you have had enough of the Hollywood left!
