Barbra Streisand is standing with Meryl Streep, who used her acceptance speech at Sunday´s Golden Globe Awards to criticize Donald Trump for lacking empathy and infamously mocking a disabled reporter in 2015. A day after Streep delivered her blistering rebuke of the president-elect, Streisand called in to Hardball With Chris Matthews and expressed her solidarity. I thought that [Streep] said what she said beautifully, Streisand remarked. Regarding Trump´s ridiculing of journalist Serge F. Kovaleski 14 months ago, Streisand added, I completely agree with Meryl. It was a heartbreaking moment and so beneath the dignity of the presidency, let alone any respectful person. What we need more in this world
Comments: I liked it better when droopy, old celebrities quietly faded away.
Poor babies, what this is all about is that now, their status has changed, no more going to parties at the White House. They are just ordinary mouth breathing, lip flapping citizens without power recognition.
No one cares who or what you agree with. You´ve been proven a partisan hack .....you and Meryl don´t speak for the voting public... you have no humility and Meryl used the wrong platform to froth at the mouth....,the blowback alone shows what fools you make of yourselves......
Wow, what NOT a shock that all the Hollyweird bobble heads are bobbing today. Streep took her moment on stage to shove her hypocritical, leftist opinions down our throats. We are used to this from Hollyweird and the media. We didn´t value them before and don´t now.
Babs just doubling down of stupidity. Who cares what BS has to say? I´m just going to cling to my Bible and my guns then watch some football and mixed martial arts cage fighting. It´s much more entertaining than Hollywood.
These ´celebrities´ do not understand that normal folks don´t care what THEY espouse. We have our own lives to live and we don´t need them to tell us how to live it. Obviously they can´t remember this line - " the election is over "- I think it was despicable to turn an awards show into a political diatribe, not that I have ever watched an awards show. They just entertain each other with their arrogance.
Barbra needs a teleprompter to sing her own songs at her concerts. It´s glorified karoake seeing one of her shows.
That line by Meryl about holding power to account? Didn´t seem to bother Hollywood when the power (democrat administration) was using the IRS against people, because it was against Republicans. Didn´t seem to bother the Hollywood crowd when the EPA was poisoning the water in Colorado and New Mexico.
OK. Meryl Streep. The thing to remember is that she’s an actor. She makes her living memorizing and delivering lines written for her by other people. She’s not a writer, and she doesn’t do improv.
So – who wrote her lines for her? Someone from Hillary’s camp? How long did she rehearse them? Did she rehearse in front of a mirror to get the facial expressions just the way she wanted them? Did she practice that little voice quiver, trying it out at different places? Did she practice different placements and durations of the pauses? How about her hand gestures?
As virtue signaling performances go, it wasn’t bad, but it didn’t really rise to the level of excellence, now did it? Because she is who she is, on a scale of 1 to 10 she always gets the gentlelady’s 3 just for showing up. So for this, I’d giver her a 4. I mean, she couldn’t even muster up a tear or two?
I saw La La Land. I’d like to see what Miss Stone could do with this script. Next!
Well of course you do dear, but no one cares.Love your voice but care about your politics, not much. Without the new social media no one would even hear your opinions-or care if they did, anymore then they care about mine. Please record a few more songs while you can still hit the notes.
Can we ask Streisand to show her HS diploma and an original copy of a porn movie she allegedly made while a teenager. I think her nose was used in place of a penis with Streep as the recipient. And why is she living in the US? What happened to her promise to leave if DJ Trump won? I´ll pay for a one way economy class ticket to Canada,New Zealand,Antarctica or Jupiter or was that last one from another genius Cher?
Isn´t it lovely to be lectured on morality by a bunch of Hollywood forks who are only actors? Hollywood, a din of sin if I ever saw one. They have no moral compass. They opened their checkbooks to a loser and now their hineys are chapped the Donald won.
Hey did you guys know that George Looney Clooney´s wife(beard) Amal is pregnant. Just like this news the fact that BS agrees with her idiot friend Streep Throat is something I don´t give a screeching RA about.
The sun has set on students’ request to change the date of their prom. Students at an elite New York City high school petitioned to change the date of their senior prom – scheduled for June 3 – because it conflicts with the Muslim observance of Ramadan, but the school has denied the request, the New York Post reported. (Snip) Still, Muslim students said eating after sundown is not the only issue; they say there are other religious rules that come into play. “You’re not supposed to listen to music during Ramadan, so it’s not really allowed,” Shabbir said.

Former Vice President Biden ripped President Trump´s policies and political populism while speaking at Cornell University´s Convocation ceremony Saturday. "I thought we had passed the days when it was acceptable for political leaders at local and national levels to bestow legitimacy on hate speech and fringe ideologies. But the world is changing so rapidly," Biden said to Cornell´s graduating class. The former vice president went on to address political populism seen recently in the U.S. and around the world. "There are a lot of folks out there who are both afraid and susceptible to this kind of negative appeal. We
CHICAGO - Chicago was the only city among the nation´s 20 largest to lose population in 2016 — and it lost nearly double the number of residents as the year before, according to newly released data from the U.S. Census Bureau. It´s the city´s third consecutive year of population loss. Chicago´s population fell by 8,638 residents between 2015 and 2016, to 2,704,958. The year before, it declined by 4,934. (Snip) The declines for Chicago and Illinois come as Southern states grow. Chicagoans are likely to continue heading to those warmer states, as the South in 2016 was home to 10
WASHINGTON - Democrats have taken heart from three recent special elections, where a troika of candidates fell short of victory but still racked up votes in longtime Republicans districts. But another moral victory won’t cut it next time. In the wake of a defeat in Montana, Democrats are facing real pressure to win a showdown next month in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District. The race is setting up to be the party’s last opportunity to score the kind of early electoral victory that its fervent base craves, and it will be a major test of whether progressive energy can translate into
Recently I ran into a Democratic operative who was adamant that his dispirited party’s stock is rising. It’s looking good, for example, that with all Trump’s troubles, the donkey party finally will win enough seats in special elections this fall to take control of our state’s Legislature from the Republicans. (Snip) Recently a poll showed the Democrats have a favorability rating 9 points lowerthan Trump’s. Another poll, by ABC News, found that 67 percent think Democrats are “out of touch” with regular people. That’s 10 points worse than Trump — who himself is about as irregular of a person as you
A suspected suicide bomber killed at least 14 people in Afghanistan on Saturday and fighting between militants and security forces left at least 36 people dead on the first day of Islam´s holy Month of Ramadan. In eastern Khost province, an attacker detonated a car bomb near a soccer field that is close to a military base, officials said. At a local hospital, doctors received at least 14 dead bodies and eight wounded people, said Gul Mohammaddin Mangal, head of the public health department in Khost. "The bodies are not recognizable and it is hard to say if they are
In her Wellesley College commencement address Friday, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee took repeated shots at President Trump, the man who beat her in November. "Look at the budget that was just proposed in Washington," Clinton said. "It is an attack of unimaginable cruelty on the most vulnerable among us, the youngest, the oldest, the poorest, and hardworking people who need a little help to gain or hang on to a decent middle-class life… And to top it off, it is shrouded in a trillion-dollar mathematical lie." But Clinton is doing more than just talking about Trump as a once
A free-thinking group of eighth grades refused to pose with House Speaker Paul Ryan during a field trip to Washington DC on Thursday. Half of the students from South Orange Middle School in New Jersey stood on the other side of the street as their classmates had their photo taken with Ryan outside the United States Capitol. When he uploaded the image to Instagram, the ones who had refused to be in it flooded the comments section with insults and complaints. ´Half of us stood across the street including me because we hate you,´ said one. Another spoke to DailyMail.com
Earth is likely to reach more dangerous levels of warming even sooner if the U.S. retreats from its pledge to cut carbon dioxide pollution, scientists said. That’s because America contributes so much to rising temperatures. President Donald Trump, who once proclaimed global warming a Chinese hoax, said in a tweet Saturday that he would make his “final decision” this coming week on whether the United States stays in or leaves the 2015 Paris climate change accord in which nearly every nation agreed to curb its greenhouse gas emissions. Leaders of seven wealthy democracies, at a summit in Sicily, urged Trump
After entering the White House in 2009, President Barack Obama went on his famous “apology” tour. Now, Hillary Clinton, having failed to win the White House in 2016, is currently on an “I’m owed an apology” tour. In an interview for an article by New York Magazine published Friday, Clinton has apparently moved past “gracious Hillary” and “relaxed in the woods Hillary” and has now moved into “angry Hillary” mode. (Snip) In the New York Magazine article, called “Hillary Clinton Is Furious. And Resigned. And Funny. And Worried,” the predominant mood is the fury — not the resignation, worry, or her
Angela Merkel has stunningly claimed Europe can no longer rely on the US, just one day Donald Trump frustrated world leaders at the G7 meeting in Italy. The German Chancellor urged the European Union to stick together in the face of new uncertainty stemming from the US and other challenges. Merkel said Sunday at a campaign event in Bavaria: ´The times in which we can fully count on others are somewhat over, as I have experienced in the past few days.´ The comments came after the G7 countries were unable to agree to a deal that would see the 2015
(Video) Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said the public was “getting weary” that Democrats have not done enough to begin the process of impeaching President Donald Trump. Partial transcript as follows: REID: Congresswoman, on the subject of being more aggressive, you have openly talked about the fact that this president has put himself in a position where impeachment is on the table but your party, the Democratic party is very reluctant, The New York Times has an article out last week about how hesitant Democratic leadership, in particular, are to call for Donald Trump’s impeachment.

Tiger Woods was arrested and charged with DUI in Jupiter, Fla., records show. The professional golfer, 41, was nabbed around 3 a.m. Monday on Military Trail just south of Indian Creek Parkway, according to WPBF 25 News. He was released under his own recognizance at 10:50 a.m., Palm Beach County Sheriff´s Office records show.
Hillary Clinton’s inner circle is concerned that the “resistance” that cropped up in the wake of President Donald Trump’s electoral win isn’t embracing the failed Democratic Presidential candidate as their de facto leader. As of late, Hillary has taken to marketing herself as the leader of the anti-Trump resistance, Tweeting about her defeat, haranguing Trump in public appearances and “persisting” despite her loss. It’s clear from Clinton’s Twitter feed, paid speeches, and comments that she wants to lead the mostly female opposition to Trump’s policy agenda. But according to sources close to Clinton’s inner circle, she’s yet again failing in
