Meryl Streep received the Golden Globe Lifetime Achievement award to blast President Obama.
“We need the principled press to hold power to account, to call them on the carpet for every outrage,” she bellowed, in an apparent reference to the fawning treatment that the press has given the Obama over the last nearly eight years. She was obviously referring to the fact that the press has ignored his original promise to be a great unifier and instead has been the most divisive president ever. Or perhaps their ignorance of his promise to “bring hope” to American while his own wife admits that after two terms that, “now we know how it feels to be without hope.”
“Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence,” she continued, in apparent reference to the President’s disrespect for the men and women of law enforcement and his infamous, ”the police acted stupidly” remark; or his perhaps his repeated attempts to convince certain racial hate groups to visit the White House. However, she could have been referring to his visceral hatred and disrespect for Benjamin Netanyahu by snubbing him on his last three visits to the US, or his final U.N. betrayal, or perhaps his support of Iran, the leading sponsor of violence and terrorism, which he refers to as, “Our partner in peace.”
Ms. Streep also blasted Obama saying, “when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose,” in an apparent reference to Mr. Obama statements that he has a “pen and a phone,” and he will make his own laws ignoring the separation of powers, and his decision not to enforce the immigration laws duly passed by congress, or to bully states by threatening to withhold funding if some of his imperialist dictates are not followed.
Hollywood is a very liberal, insular world and most top tier performers have no idea what normal, working-class people who buy tickets to their performances do daily and the hardships that they face. But, don’t worry, Meryl, the people have spoken and they have rejected the bully that has wreaked so much divisiveness in the country, who has spread so much hatred, who has burdened the future generations with mountains of additional debt, and created safe havens for terrorists in Iraq, Syria and Libya and who has ignored the founders and their brilliant Constitution to which you have referred. Things are changing and the mistakes of the past 8 years can still be rectified.
