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.
MI5 has reportedly launched two urgent inquiries into how it missed the danger posed by the Manchester bomber, Salman Abedi. It comes amid claims he was repeatedly reported to the authorities. One review was started last week, which will aim to quickly identify any glaring errors, while the other will be more in depth, the Guardian has learned. The home secretary refused to comment on Sunday on whether opportunities were missed to spot the 22-year-old´s deadly terrorist intentions. Abedi, whose parents come from Libya, is thought to have received terror training in the country before returning to the UK just days before
A crowd of Muslims gathered on an Australian street to condemn terrorism in the wake of the Manchester attack. The group of Islamic men stood on a path in the middle of the Perth CBD in Western Australia wearing t-shirts that read: ´I am a Muslim, ask me anything´. Imam Kamran Tahir - who is an Ahmadiyya Muslim - stood alongside other Islam adherents while wearing the shirts in a bid to ease the fear surrounding the Islamic faith after the suicide bombing in Manchester. isconceptions about the faith The Perth man shared images of himself and fellow Muslims outside of the Murray
A memorial dedicated to soldiers who lost their lives in Afghanistan and Iraq is using 7000 boots to honor their legacy and service. The display - in its third year of existence - covers the recreation field at Fort Bragg, North Carolina and was created by Survivor Outreach Services (SOS). Retired Army veteran and Fort Bragg employee, Mike Thomas, has made it his mission to connect families unable to see the memorial with their loved ones. Last year, the former servicemen made a post offering to take a photo of any boot and send it to that soldier´s family and while the
FORMER SAS soldiers and ex-special forces troops are being shipped out to Spain’s tourist hot spots amid fears Islamic State could attack British holidaymakers. The former elite soldiers are set to patrol beaches as well as hotel grounds disguised as tourists in a bid to protect British sun seekers as they holiday in the Iberian country. Intelligence reports have indicated ISIS could be planning a repeat of the 2015 attack in Tunisia when 30 British holidaymakers were gunned down on a beach in north Africa. Areas of mainland Spain as well as the Canary Islands and the Balearic islands, which includes popular
Lindsey Graham says James Comey ´needs to be held accountable´ if he interfered in the election over ´fake information´. The South Carolina Senator spoke to Dana Bash on CNN´s State of the Union about reports Comey acted on Russian intelligence concerning the Hillary Clinton email scandal, even though he knew the information was false. ´I´m not so sure the email that Comey relied upon was fake, but I can tell you this, he never briefed the Congress, the Judiciary Committee, about any fake email,´ Graham said. ´What he told the intelligence committee about this email, he never suggested it was fake, so if
A chemical engineering student and his brother were being held over the Manchester terror attack last night as Amber Rudd admitted that members of the bomber’s network could still be at large. University students Mohamed and Yahya Werfalli were arrested in the early hours of Saturday - hours before Theresa May lowered the UK’s terror threat level from critical to severe. The brothers, who like other suspects are British born but of Libyan heritage, are believed to move in the same friendship circles as the Manchester bomber Salman Abedi, also 22. Yahya is listed on Facebook as a friend of
Authorities in Mississippi say a suspect is in custody after eight people were killed in a shooting, including a sheriff´s deputy, after an apparent domestic argument over children. Lincoln County Sheriff Steve Rushing said the suspect is Willie Cory Godbolt, aged 35. He was captured Sunday morning shortly before 7am at Super Jack´s at East Lincoln Road and Hwy. 84, Rushing said. While sitting on the ground in handcuffs surrounded by law enforcement officers, Godbolt told the Clarion-Ledger of his intentions. He said he was talking with his wife and members of her family when someone called authorities. ´I was having a conversation with
Donald Trump is considering a massive overhaul of his White House staff that would see top strategists from his campaign brought back into the fold. The president´s reported plan is the result of his growing frustration with what he views as his team´s inability to contain the burgeoning crisis involving alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election. A Trump adviser told the Wall Street Journal: ´Everything is in play.´ One of the changes expected is an expansion of lawyers and experienced public relations experts to better deal with the seemingly constant stream of revelations about Moscow´s interference in the election and potential improper
President Donald Trump has reportedly told multiple people in private that he will withdraw the US from the Paris climate agreement. Though Trump has publicly said he has not yet made up his mind, Axios reports he has privately told several people of his decision, including EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. The outlet spoke with three sources who confirmed the information, though Trump has been known to change his mind at the last minute. Trump tweeted Saturday morning to say he would announce his ´final decision´ on whether or not the US will stay in the Paris agreement next week despite coming under
Anthony Weiner´s ´stylish and unique´ duplex apartment was listed for rent, only to be taken off the market a week later. Weiner, 52, and his wife Huma Abedin listed their three-bedroom, 1,500-square-foot apartment at 1 Irving Place near Manhattan´s Union Square for $11,900 a month in a report that first appeared in the New York Post. The listing was posted on May 19 - the day Weiner pleaded guilty to transferring obscene material to a minor in federal court. Abedin also filed for divorce that same day. But the apartment is no longer available, according to multiple property websites, and it remains unclear
UK security chiefs were warned in January that Salman Abedi was planning an attack in Britain, it was claimed last night. According to a security source, the FBI told MI5 that Abedi was part of a North African Islamic State cell plotting to strike a political target in the UK. The information came from a US investigation into Abedi and his links to terrorist groups in Libya. The Mail on Sunday has also been told that US security services put him on a terror watch list – used by agents to identify key suspects – in 2016. The shocking claim piles further
WELSH voters in Labour heartlands are fleeing Labour under Jeremy Corbyn and putting their faith behind Theresa May to take on Brussels in Brexit talks, it has been revealed. Welsh voters are flocking to the Tories across mining towns which used to be dominated by Labour. The country voted to leave the EU by 52 per cent last year and many are turning to Theresa May to get the best deal for the country. Speaking to BBC reporter Carolyn Quinn, voters in the constituency of Gower said that Brexit was their top priority in the election campaign. Many praised Theresa May as the
At least two separate news organizations are reporting that three distinct leakers have been identified at the White House and that President Donald Trump is expected to fire them when he returns from his first overseas trip. “CBS News has confirmed from two sources that three leakers of classified information at the White House have been identified and are expected to be fired,” CBS News reported this week, adding, “Officials within the Trump White House believe leaks of Mr. Trump’s conversation with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov are a ‘deliberate attempt’ by officials who are holdovers from President Obama’s administration
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
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. In
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
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
It’s pile-on time for America’s commercial airlines. The contempt people hold for them has long been severe, but following a raft of highly publicized incidents, resentment has hit a fever pitch. It started about a month ago, with the forced removal of a passenger onboard a United Express flight. This was followed by several more airlines-behaving-badly controversies, up to and including the death of Simon, a giant rabbit who perished after a London-to-Chicago United flight. Over and over we are reminded about the hellishness that is commercial flying. Enabled by cellphone cameras and the catalyst of social media, even the most
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.

French President Emmanuel Macron acknowledged to a French newspaper that his intense handshake with President Trump ahead of the NATO summit in Brussels "wasn´t innocent," but instead was meant as a show of resolve, The Associated Press reported Sunday. "One must show that you won´t make small concessions, even symbolic ones, but also not over-publicize things, either," he told Le Journal du Dimanche, according to the AP. The handshake between Macron and Trump on Thursday drew attention for its visible intensity, with both pairs of knuckles turning white from pressure.

The White House is said to have gone into crisis mode amid reports Jared Kushner is the focus of the FBI´s Russia investigation, while a former CIA boss accusing the president´s son-in-law of perhaps having committed ´espionage´. Donald Trump will meet with his private legal team - led by New York lawyer Marc Kasowitz - after it was reported on Friday that Kushner had contact with Russia´s US ambassador Sergei Kislyak about creating a secret back-channel in order to avoid having their communications detected by US authorities. The New York Times reported Saturday Trump´s aides have: ´recru
U.S. President Donald Trump has informed multiple individuals, including EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, that he intends to remove the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement, according several sources. On Saturday night, Axios reported the news based on “three sources with direct knowledge.” Breitbart News has independently confirmed this reporting and that Trump has told others the same thing: that he plans to withdraw the U.S. from the agreement. Earlier on Saturday, the President tweeted from Italy that he would make his final decision next week as to whether the U.S. will remain in the Paris Accord. He was in
