Donald Trump has hit back at Meryl Streep calling her a ´Hillary lover´ after her Golden Globes acceptance speech took aim at the president-elect. Streep, who was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award on Sunday, slammed Trump in front of a room of stunned Hollywood stars. She said the moment he mocked and humiliated a disabled reporter ´broke her heart´ as Streep labelled it the year´s most stunning performance. Trump told the New York Times early Monday that he had not seen Streep´s speech or the Golden Globes coverage. Trump told the New York Times early Monday that he
No one loves Hollywood more than Hollywood. As for me, a fly over country deplorable, I will not support anything they churn out. Not one thin dime. That also includes musicians who can´t keep their mouths shut. I am not disputing their right to say such things I just disagree with the venue they chose. But they must remember we do have the power of the purse and it´s time we used a bit of that power. Oh, by the way, do they really think their political commercials really do any good? We can get along without them.
Truthfully, I have never, ever watched the gold-plated globe. I haven´t watched the Oscars since Marlon Brando sent that Indian princess to speak for him. As the other poster expressed, it all about mutual admiration.
Trump was crude in his mocking of a handicapped reporter, and that incident can´t be explained away. But, and there´s always a "but", it is nothing compared to 8 years of Obama & Clinton´s lies, deceptions and law breaking. Why didn´t Streep ask that our next president govern with integrity, honesty and adherence to the law? Or, does Streep believe that crude lies and blatant lawlessness are acceptable if they advance the Democrats´ socialist agenda?
Streep has to realize that she is no longer flying out of Africa on Air Force 2 with Michelle Obama, as the two of them did in 2016.
It´s funny to see the Lefties faux-outrage over Trump´s alleged mocking of a disabled reporter. They all bring it up immediately as their reason to despise Trump, yet the hateful actions of their members are never mentioned.
I watched because my #2 son was visiting, and he is an actor, and wanted to see it. I thought Meryl Streep´s comments made her sound unbalanced. And, not surprisingly, I didn´t know more than a handful of the people there. They certainly do like each other, though.
I´d call them Leftists. Hollyweird loves the yuuuuge tax breaks provided for them by the Demonrat Party hacks. Perhaps they suspect that their free ride is about to end since they are bitterly clinging to the minority party.
They are the 1%ers who don´t want the general public to know that they intend to hold onto all of their money and have no plan to share it with the less fortunate.
Cripes.Don´t any of these people learn how to research? Trump never mocked that reporter whose arms can´t even move. He uses that gesture to mock everybody who lies. Streep just proved she´s a partisan moron so she should just shut up and act.
"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," Streep said, fighting back tears."
Idiot. Streep obviously has never watched NFL Films slow-mo of a football in flight - or watched any Bruce Lee movies.
If Streep wants to understand why average Americans despise Hollyweird, perhaps she should try researching the role of playing one watching the spoiled, pampered Hollyweird actors endlessly caterwauling about the election results. Perhaps then she might learn that actors are out of touch with reality, don´t have the answers to any of society´s problems, and aren´t always right despite the cadre of brown-nosers they surround themselves with.
Ooooh! The "brave" Hollywood actress takes a stand that will cost her...nothing. She will still get roles, she will still be invited to the parties, she will still be toasted as a Special Person, as she is an artiste! she is soooo above the rabble whom she deigns to "entertain" with her "art."
I´d boycott her films, but I don´t see them anyway. If it doesn´t have Iron Man in it, I´m not interested (yes, I know they´re all liberals, too).
How could they hear her in that chamber with that echo?
I have never liked Streep. She did Sophie´s Choice and all of a sudden she became Hollywood´s queen. She made the comment one time that she was grateful she could make it home at night to tuck in her babies. Her kids were raised by nannies while she was out and about aggrandizing herself. That did it for me.
I voted for Trump specifically because he does fight back. And the "mocking the disabled reporter" story is not true. But the lefty lo-fos don´t know that so their "stars" in Hollywierd and the media keep bringing it up. Kinda like the "Hands up. Don´t shoot" lie.
Did it bother little Meryl when Biden yellled, "Stand up, Chuck!"?
Two things here: They ACT so offended by Trump´s alleged crude remarks and yet THEY are the Masters of Hate by peddling and promoting disgusting rap lyrics, movies which are often degrading to women and disturbing, unrivaled violence. Why do they do it? Because they CAN. WE allow it; we enable it. THEY boycott Everything Trump, including the inauguration because they know WE won´t organize to boycott THEM. STOP going to movies. STOP buying their music. STOP playing defense! We have the power to STOP them! Suppose they held a Golden Globe...and nobody watched.
I distinctly remember leftists mocking John McCain´s disability which he received while fighting for his country in the Vietnam War. Did that bother Streep? I don´t remember her screeching about THAT at any awards ceremony.
It disturbs me that there is even one poster left here at lucianne who still buys and peddles this fakestream media lie that DJT "mocked" a disabled reporter. Amazing that anyone here could believe that for even a moment. Isn´t it obvious by now that not a word from the fakestream is ever true?
It is of paramount importance that every fakestream lie be forcefully refuted at every repetition. DJT will never stop fighting this, and neither should any of us.
Didn´t Chevy Chase make his whole career out of mocking President Ford´s "clumsiness" which was really from a trick knee which came from being an All American football player for Michigan? Few knew Ford´s glorious athletic accomplishments, most believed he was a clumsy fool. Such is Hollywood´s respect for Republicans. Fight on, President-elect Trump.
I love her acting. Don´t give a rat´s patootie about her political views. She speaks as part of the .000001% of the population. We´re stupid in her view. She´s a CWS (except for her acting) as my daddy used to say. CWS=Complete Waste of Skin
i blew her out of the water on twitter....i dont need her opinion esp at an award show.....egotistical and arrogant just like obama.......she makes big bucks to pretend.......i watch very few hollywood movies and i wont be watching her again...the nerve to take that forum and bash trump esp when she supported a criminal.....she´s pathetic...we the people spoke meryl.....deal with it
Hollywood personifies the self adulation, drug, perversion, sodomy, socialist, communist, anti America and Anti American society to boot. I haven´t gone to a movie theater or watch any of these so called awards in almost 40 years, don´t buy their magazines, and anything else that has to do with these perverts. Money talk. They have the right to their opinion but they don´t have the right to put it in my living room.
Streep can always be depended on for political vitriol. The Trump hurt the poor handicapped reporter device was disgusting. The liberals are always victims. Anything said about them that is true and they plead they are black, handicapped, poor, innocent -- that after pulling the knives from your back, and their hands from your pocket with your wallet.
According to my eyes and ears, he absolutely did mock the reporter with cerebral palsy and does bear the karma of a lot of rude, crude and cruel things he said and did during the campaign and he should humbly accept the blowback. Unearned criticism is another matter, but this he earned.. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4100952/Trump-fires-Hillary-lover-Meryl-Streep-Golden-Globes-speech.html
That said, the Hollywood crowd is extremely tiresome with their predictable self-righteous leftist schtick. Also, for some reason I can´t stand Meryl Streep and have always tried to avoid her movies.
Trump is also tiresome with his tweets and it would be refreshing if he would just silence them for a change. If I have to take four more years of this, he will earn my undying disrespect They do feed off his annoyance and responses and I wish he would ignore their provocations once in a while. Peace is not always a bad thing.
Trump does get all the really stupid and hateful people to open up, that´s for sure. If people like Meryl weren´t making stupid speeches I would be worried that Trump isn´t doing something right. This is reassuring to me.
"Hooray for Hollywood That screwy ballyhooey Hollywood Where any office boy or young mechanic Can be a panic, with just a good-looking pan; And any barmaid can be a star maid If she can dance with or without a fan ...
Hooray for Hollywood You may be homely in your neighborhood But if you think that you can be an actor See Mr. Factor, he´d make a monkey look good. Within a half an hour, you´ll look like Tyrone Power, Hooray for Hollywood."
#47, I suggest you follow the link provided by #26. The reporter is not palsied, and the gesture is a standard part of Trump´s repertoire. True, you can´t count on Trump to always be a dignified gentleman; but you _can_ count on liberals to lie and distort the truth about their opponents.
The leftist are too dumb to realize that they are very racists. Minorities, under Obama, went backwards economically by many years. Why don´t they want the minorities to be equal? Maybe someone should ask them that question. I´m really tired of all this. Obama, the first black president, Obama, the first time power wasn´t handed over like an adult. He could put a stop to it but he just keeps lighting the match and throwing it into the fire. Disgusting!
I do not understand how an awards show turned into a political bashing event; oh, it is filled with left-wing liberals who can turn any event into a hate fest.I wonder what the ratings for this show were, as I expect many viewers turned it off as the reality struck home that it was not presented as advertised.
First of all Mr. Trump. You soon will be sworn in as president. Stay off of Twitter.
It amazes me that these Hollywood types always claim to take the high road, yet they are so rude as to ruin the celebration for the winners by putting their politics into it. Does Meryl forget that Obama made fun of retarded people? She also forgets how corrupt her idol, Hillary, is. Rather, she chooses to ignore it. With the right director, anybody from the street could give performances as good as Meryl Streep or anybody else. She makes more money for one picture than the population of some small towns make in a year and she´s "For the people". Maybe she should have given us a lesson on "Global Warming" since they´re to get 8 to 10 feet of snow on the West Coast. I don´t watch these so-called award shows and I no longer go to movies. They used to be entertaining.
Streep is as useless as chop sticks in the soup line. She doesn´t have the vision, intelligence, judgement, or education to make comments about national and international events. Listening to her is akin to listening to any other egotistical narcissist who cannot get over herself. I´d sooner listen to some near brain dead athlete than listen to this megamouth.
Hey, sorry for the second post, but something just occurred to me. Meryl Streep and Jimmy Fallon were just at Barky´s big final WH bash, were they not? Wonder if they received marching orders for the Golden Globes. I think Streep was specifically mentioned as having stayed until 3 a.m. Can´t you just see some drunken lovefest promise from La Streep to use her power as an actress with a microphone to keep the narrative going?
How much talent does it take to act, really? Before the camera was invented, actors worked a stage in front of a small crowd to earn pennies. The only reason these people make so much money is because the people who watch them are so bored that it makes life seem glamorous to them just by pressing a few buttons on a remote control.
She forgets WE voted for Trump. Go ahead. Make another movie with Streep in it now. Watch what we do to it at the box office. No ticket sales for Streep movies until she publicly apologizes – to us. From bankable talent to pariah in one evening. They just don’t learn.
#47 - #53 is right. I suspect the page cited by #26 will change your mind. He mocks spasticity as part of mocking anybody being discombobulated (including himself). And #23 is dead on target: Some of Hollyweird´s most beloved comic actors had mocking spasticity as a central part of their spiel. It may not be praise-worthy, but DJT is absolutely neither alone in doing it, nor even close to the worst offender. [But it´s clear he was not making fun of the reporter´s cerebral palsy with that gesticulation that´s being condemned]
People on the left have nothing on Trump, so they take the small, very questionable event and make the elefant out of the mole. At the same time they don´t see anything bad in criminal acts of their Comissars. Let´s boikot all their movies, especially if taking in consideration the good movies do not come often. Let´s them go to the movie theaters and watch each others.
THE EUROPEAN Union “shafted” Ireland and will pay the price with a shock ‘Irexit’, a think tank has warned. Dublin-based Hibernia Forum said the Republic could leave the bloc as revenge for its treatment by Brussels during the financial crisis. Co-founder Keith Redmond said the country had been “quarantined” and forced to take on “toxic banking debt”. Mr Redmond, who is also a councillor on the Fingal County Council, told Express.co.uk other factors, such as a growing loss of sovereignty, could lead to an Irish EU exit. When asked whether euroscepticism was growing on the island, he said: “For sure.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Friday that the defeat of the Republican plan to repeal Obamacare was ´a victory for all Americans.´ The Democrat, who lost to President Donald Trump in the November 8 election, tweeted: ´Today was a victory for the 24,000,000 people at risk of losing their health insurance, for seniors, for families battling the quiet epidemic of addiction, for new moms and women everywhere.´ ´Most of all, it´s a victory for anyone who believes affordable health care is a human right.´ ´We cannot forget: This victory happened because people in every corner of our country committed their
Relatives of the Westminster terrorist Khalid Masood´s first wife have said he was a ´psychopath´ and they divorced after only three months of marriage. Masood married Muslim Farzana Malik in 2004 after his second release from jail, following his frenzied knife attack on scaffolder Danny Smith, 35, in Eastbourne. However he was ´controlling´ and ´violent´ towards her and she ended up fleeing to friends in Middlesbrough from their home in Crawley, West Sussex, to escape him. On her Facebook page ´Soul Searchers´, she describes Islamic fanaticism as ´nonsensical´, in a lengthy tirade which calls on her fellow Muslims to heed their true faith,
Don´t look now but a cyclone could be spinning off the Bahamas by Sunday. Yep, a tropical system two months before the official start of the hurricane season. Computer model runs and National Hurricane Center forecasters called Friday for the storm to develop cyclonic winds and travel out to sea to the northeast. But it could bring swells and surf to the South Carolina coast, meteorologist Shea Gibson of WeatherFlow said. More importantly, it has meteorologists shifting forward in their seats to begin actively watching for storms to develop in a year when unusually warm waters off South Carolina, as well as in
Former President Bill Clinton was spotted having a night out on the town in Dublin with a couple of wealthy Irish businessmen hours after speaking at Martin McGuinness´s funeral. Clinton, dressed casually in jeans, sweater and a blazer, was photographed leaving Peploe´s Wine Bistro on St Stephen´s Green on Thursday night with Irish billionaire businessman Denis O´Brien and well-known hotelier and philanthropist John Fitzpatrick. The group appeared to be in high spirits as they spoke with a passerby as they left the restaurant, a known hotspot for celebrities and politicians. Fitzpatrick, an Irish-born, Manhattan based hotelier, is a longtime friend of the Clintons,
A terrorist rams his car into a crowd. Then he steps out and starts knifing civilians. That was Wednesday in London, but in Israel it can be any day of the week. So the terrorist attack at Westminster outside Parliament, which killed four, would surprise no Israeli, particularly as to this pattern of terrorism. In Israel it’s been going on for years…deadly car rammings and indiscriminate knifings as a method to strike fear into the heart of an entire population. Now the entire world knows how it feels, but it all begins in Israel, where Islamic terrorists try out new tactics to
THERESA MAY today revealed a British-born man who had previously been probed by MI5 was the terrorist who killed three in a Islamic State-claimed attack yesterday. Following the horror scenes in Westminster yesterday afternoon, which left four dead - including the attacker - and 40 injured, Islamic State (ISIS) jihadists have published a claim of responsibility for the attack. The group´s propaganda outlet, the Amaq News agency, claimed the attacker was a "soldier of the Islamic State" who had responded to recent ISIS calls to target citizens in Western nations. The man mowed down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in a car before
ISIS has today claimed responsibility for the Westminster attack which left four dead and dozens injured. The terror group said a ´soldier of the Islamic State´ carried out the atrocity in which a British-born man ploughed his car through crowds near Parliament yesterday afternoon. A statement by the ISIS news agency Amaq said: ´The perpetrator of the attacks yesterday in front of the British parliament in London is an Islamic State soldier and he carried out the operation in response to calls to target citizens of the coalition.´ ISIS has frequently called on its supporters to carry out attacks against citizens of the
The Home Front Command has a contingency plan to evacuate hundreds of thousands of residents who live on the border with Lebanon, a senior IDF officer in the command told The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday. Close to a million Israelis live in the North; an estimated quarter of a million could be evacuated in case a war breaks out with Hezbollah. “In the past we didn’t think of needing to evacuate whole communities, but now we understand that we will have to evacuate hundreds of thousands of people,” the senior officer said. Hezbollah’s technological abilities and battlefield experience have grown as it fights
THE terrorist attack in London has prompted New York city police to ramp up the security of British sites, in a bid to deter “copycat attacks”. Heavily armed officers, explosives and detecting dogs have been deployed in locations including the British Consulate and the British Mission to the United Nations in Manhattan, senior New York Police Department officials have confirmed. James Waters, the Police Department’s Counter-Terrorism Chief, said: "You´ll see a larger presence of the dogs at these locations, as well as (officers) armed with the long guns.” The assailant drove across Westminster Bridge ploughing into a crowd of people
Armed police have been involved in a raid at a residential property near to a curry house in Birmingham this evening, closing off part of the city for more than two hours. Dozens of officers, some response and some with weapons, were seen swooping an address near to the Bearwood part of the city this evening. Hagley Road was closed for a period of time and then reopened. BBC Newsnight has claimed the vehicle used in the London terror attacks could have been rented from the same road. The road is said to have closed at 11pm and reopened by 2am, with witnesses
One dog has gone from being a mangy stray pooch to a presidential pet... sort of. While Donald Trump doesn´t have a dog, his son and daughter-in-law, Eric and Lara, have adopted a stray beagle who was so sick when he first came into a shelter that he had to stay at the vet hospital for a month. Ben the beagle was brought to the San Antonio Animal Care Services in April 2016, so covered with mange that much of his fur was gone, with his raw, sore, pink skin showing through. Ben was so sick he spent a month recovering at
House Republican leaders abruptly pulled a Republican rewrite of the nation’s health-care system from consideration on Friday, a dramatic acknowledgment that they are so far unable to repeal the Affordable Care Act. “We just pulled it,” President Trump told The Washington Post in a telephone interview. The decision came a day after President Trump delivered an ultimatum to lawmakers — and represented multiple failures for the new president and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.). The decision means the Affordable Care Act remains in place, at least for now, and a major GOP campaign promise goes unfulfilled. It also casts
Republican officials in Congress and the White House are now openly discussing finding a GOP replacement to Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) as Speaker of the House, after Ryan failed to pass the American Health Care Act out of the House and misled the public and President Donald Trump when he promised repeatedly the bill would pass. Ryan was caught on an audio file from October—obtained by Breitbart News and published a couple weeks ago—saying he is “not going to defend Donald Trump—not now, not in the future.” While the audio file does not make the comments clear, Ryan’s staff later claimed
Nearly three months after the Trump clan moved into their new posh Washington neighborhood, neighbors of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner have expressed their fury over the presidential family´s lack of community etiquette that is ´ruining´ the suburb. Residents have complained their new neighbors have been hogging parking on an already crowded street and leaving trash bags rotting on the curb. A big part of the complaint: a huge security presence, with even a trip to the playground requiring three vans. They have groused that sidewalks have been closed, public parking overrun and that the family and their staff can´t
BRUSSELS—Republican Senator John McCain revealed he hasn’t met the President Donald Trump in person since he took office, and he urged Trump to reach out to his opponents—Democratic and otherwise—ala Ronald Reagan if he wants to repeal Obamacare. “Do some outreach. Get to know some of these Democratic leaders,” he said. “You can find common ground.” McCain said he’d met Trump “some years ago” when he was a businessman, but had not met him since. McCain said he did speak “almost daily” to National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, however. “He doesn’t seem to
Donald Trump had heard enough about policy and process. It was Thursday afternoon and members of the House Freedom Caucus were peppering the president with wonkish concerns about the American Health Care Act—the language that would leave Obamacare’s “essential health benefits” in place, the community rating provision that limited what insurers could charge certain patients, and whether the next two steps of Speaker Paul Ryan’s master plan were even feasible—when Trump decided to cut them off."Forget about the little "stuff", Trump said, according to multiple sources in the room. "Let´s focus on the big picture here."The group of roughly 30
Broken promises are as old as politics itself, and there are many famous examples of them in modern history. President George H.W. Bush´s "read my lips, no new taxes" pledge comes immediately to mind, as does President Bill Clinton reneging on his middle-class tax cut, and President Barack Obama never closing Guantanamo Bay. But in each of those cases, those were promises that were made in a given campaign by a given politician. The promise of Obamacare repeal is much different. Republicans ran on repealing and replacing Obamacare for seven years, over the course of four election cycles. They won the
We live in a time of “fake news” awareness, so you’d think that someone at the Los Angeles Times would know better than to publish a headline like this: “Just like her mother, Chelsea Clinton never gets a break” Let’s leave the aside the reference to Hillary Clinton, who magically was able to turn $1,000 into $100,000 in cattle futures with no regulatory consequence and delete 30,000 evidentiary emails without prosecution. Or a break. Chelsea is being groomed for political power, and all the powers of modern propaganda are being mobilized to convince voters that she has some claim to
(Video)Maryland’s governor said Friday he cannot promise parents of children in Montgomery County schools, where a freshman high school student was allegedly raped by two older teenagers, that their children will be safe. Republican Gov. Larry Hogan’s remarks came as the assault last Thursday by two immigrants, at least one of whom is in the U.S. illegally, has become a flashpoint for parents worried that the county’s “sanctuary” status for illegal immigrants exposes their school children to danger.“I’m not sure I can give assurances that their children will be safe,” he said. What he did give assurances about, however, was that he
Brexit was caused in part by climate change, former US Vice-President Al Gore has said, warning that extreme weather is creating political instability “the world will find extremely difficult to deal with”. Mr Gore, speaking at an event in which he previewed a sequel to his landmark 2006 documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, said the “principal” cause of the Syrian Civil War had been the worst drought in 900 years, which forced 1.5 million people to move from the countryside to the cities. There they met a similar number of Iraqis who had fled the conflict in their homeland, creating powder keg conditions
Health Reform: Friday´s decision to pull the American Health Care Act from the House floor because it lacked enough votes to pass was a culmination of months of bad decisions, poor planning, and terrible messaging by the GOP leadership in the House. This failure undermines not only the party´s credibility, but President Trump´s purported ability to "make great deals." Worse, it emboldens the left-wing "resistance." Back in early December, we warned in this space that the Republican´s ObamaCare repeal effort was "off to a bad start." That was when House Speaker Paul Ryan was talking up a "repeal and delay" plan that
It´s the most cunning robocall scam I’ve encountered — and the fact that I’ve fallen for it more than once tells you how successful it can be. The phone rings. You pick it up and say “hello.” There’s a brief silence and then a woman’s voice says, “Oh, hi there!” She offers an embarrassed laugh. “I’m sorry, I was having a little trouble with my headset!”I’ve gotten this call a number of times in recent weeks, at home and at work, and each time I’ve been suckered by the lifelike opening to stay on the line longer than I normally
House Republicans scrapped a vote on their health care replacement plan on Friday after defections from both the right and center that made it clear the bill would not pass. President Trump tried to spin the setback as a defeat for Democrats who wouldn´t cross the aisle to support the bill — despite not making any entreaties to the minority party. Trump — who is the first president to enter office without any political or legislative experience — did seem to admit there was a bit of a learning curve when it came to such a complex issue. "This was an interesting
