Donald Trump Burns Meryl Streep for Political Rant at Golden Globe Awards
Last night was the Golden Globe Awards. In case you missed it, because you have a job or aren't gay... Here's a brief recap. Meryl Streep waddled up on stage and gave a bizarre, political rant. Surprise! Another puffed up actor giving unsolicited insights into the political arena. Not exactly a first, I know (see MORON ALERT: Emmy-Winning Director Calls Trump Hitler. The Facts...). In a speech that basically endorsed Donald Trump's reelection, Meryl Streep made herself look like a walking anus. While also attacking football and mixed martial arts fans? Watch...
So Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners. And if we kick them all out you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.
Surprising to no one, Trump responded:

"groveling" when he totally changed a 16 year old story that he had written in order to make me look bad. Just more very dishonest media!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump) 1483962206.0
Boom. Roasted by the President-elect. Feel free to add that to your long list of "achievements," Meryl.
This instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, because it kinda gives permission for other people to do the same thing.
Hmm. Someone powerful in the public platform, like our favorite celebrities? Sounds a lot like the problem with mainstream celebrities humiliating anyone who has a different opinion than them - about anything ever. But I suppose the same rules don't apply to out of touch elitists. Silly me...
