Meryl Streep slams Trump at Golden Globes

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

Screen legend Meryl Streep tore into Donald Trump's divisive rhetoric and denounced him as a bully who humiliated others while receiving a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes, prompting the President-elect to dismiss her as a “Hillary lover".

Streep, an ardent supporter of Trump's rival Hillary Clinton, slammed the next US President in her scathing speech while accepting the Cecil B DeMille Award at the Golden Globes. The three-time Oscar winner took swipes at Trump's divisive rhetoric without naming him as she cautioned against powerful people using their position to "bully others".

Echoing British actor Hugh Laurie's earlier comment about how the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is part of "the most vilified segments in American society right now", the 67-year-old actress said the association was made of -- Hollywood, foreigners and the press.

"But who are we and what is Hollywood, anyway? It is just a place with a bunch of people from other places," Streep said in her speech while accepting the Cecil B DeMille Award.

"Amy Adams was born in Vicenza, Italy. And Natalie Portman was born in Jerusalem. Where are their birth certificates? And (Indian-origin) Dev Patel was born in Kenya, raised in London, and is here playing an Indian raised in Tasmania," she said as she highlighted the rich diversity of Hollywood.

"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."
