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.
RADICAL anti-fascist protesters have clashed with armed police in Paris after hearing the news that Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron appear to have made it through to the run-off in the French Presidential election. Riot police continue to engage in violent clashes with anti fascist groups who seemingly cannot accept the result of the public vote - which shows Mr Macron won 23.3 per cent of support compared to Ms Le Pen’s estimated 21.7 per cent. Reports say tear gas has been used against the hundreds of protesters, who have also been struck with battens. It appears a peaceful
TOULOUSE – Under tight security, the people of France will begin voting for a new president on Sunday after debating for more than a year what the future of their country should look like. The options before them offer starkly different visions and reveal deep fault lines within French society over issues of race, nationalism and their country’s role in forging an inclusive and united Europe. Four candidates lead the pack – a democratic socialist, a far-right nativist, an establishment republican and a young, independent newcomer. Those candidates – Jean-Luc Mélenchon, Marine Le Pen, François Fillon and Emmanuel Macron, respectively –
MARINE Le Pen’s surging campaign will cause chaos among the EU 27 even if she loses the French Presidential election, a German pundit has claimed. Ms Le Pen looks set to take the lead in the first round of voting as polls place her slightly ahead of rivals Macron, Fillon and Melenchon. But Die Welt’s Klaus Gieger claims the far right firebrand will send shockwaves through the bloc even if she loses the election. Mr Gieger said: “After a victory of Macron or Fillon, France, Germany and Europe in general will win nothing at all. "They will be given five
ONE in seven of those who voted Labour at the last General Election will switch to the Conservatives because of Jeremy Corbyn, a Sunday Express poll reveals. in seven Labour voters from the last General Election will vote Tory, according to a poll Party leadership was the main reason for defection on June 8 as the survey put Prime Minister Theresa May 16 points ahead of Labour on 42 per cent, giving the Conservatives a thumping majority of more than 100. Twenty-six per cent of those questioned by polling company Norstat said they would vote Labour, while 10 per cent opted for
FBI Director James Comey distrusted former Attorney General Loretta Lynch because he believed she helped play down the investigation into Hillary Clinton´s private server, according to a new report. Comey ended up plunging the FBI into the center of the 2016 presidential election when he reopened the investigation into Clinton´s emails just weeks before the election. The New York Times revealed that Comey handled the investigations into Clinton and the president-elect at the time, Donald Trump, very differently. According to several government officials, Comey rewrote the script when it came down to the Clinton case, mainly because the FBI believed she would win
e-mail View comments Marine Le Pen was today poised for a historic breakthrough in France’s nail-biting presidential race. The far-Right leader is confident her chances of winning the election’s first round have been strengthened by last week’s terrorist murder of a police officer on the Champs-Élysées. But with the country on high alert as voters head to the polls, 48-year-old Le Pen – dubbed ‘Madame Frexit’ for threatening to follow Britain out of the EU – was accused of using the shooting for her own ends.
The Surgeon General appointed by President Obama stepped down Friday after he was asked to resign by the Trump administration. Dr Vivek Murthy will still serve on the Commissioned Corps of the Public Health Service. He was confirmed as Surgeon General in December of 2014. He has famously called gun violence a public health issue. Murthy has also said he believes marijuana can be helpful for some medical conditions. He is being replaced temporarily by Rear Admiral Sylvia Trent-Adams, a nurse and the Deputy Surgeon General. She has a doctoral degree in philosophy and a master of science in nursing
Paris (CNN)French police are hunting a man identified by Belgian security services in connection with an attack on police officers in Paris Thursday, a French interior ministry spokesman said. A gunman, who shot three police officers on the Champs-Elysee, killing one, was later claimed by ISIS through its media wing Amaq as an Islamic State "fighter" they dubbed "the Belgian." French Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet told France´s Europe 1 radio Friday that it´s too early to tell what role the second suspect played, if any, in the attack. "There are probably, possible accomplices that need to be arrested which
Scarcely had the starting gun for Britain’s election battle been fired when technology guru Bill Gates waded in with a doom-laden warning to the Prime Minister. The American multi-billionaire, the world’s richest man, was accused of ‘lecturing’ Britain last night after telling Theresa May not to slash the country’s bloated foreign aid budget – claiming that doing so would diminish Britain’s influence in the world and mean many more lives lost in Africa. In an article in the Guardian, he wrote: ‘The big aid givers now are the US, Britain and Germany. If those three back off, a lot of
This is the moment a BBC report was interrupted by loud noises that police mistook for gunfire. The reporter was describing the ´tension´ in the French capital following an attack that left one policeman dead and two seriously injured. Then a sound like gunshots could be heard, which led to police shouting at the journalist and her cameraman to run for cover. At the start of the video, the reporter says: ´People in central Paris were too scared to leave their homes, the tension is palpable.´ After the loud bangs, she says: ´A sudden noise where we were was mistaken for gunfire and
President Donald Trump tore into the nuclear pact with Iran today, deriding it as a ´terrible agreement´ that ´shouldn´t have been signed.´ His administration is analyzing it, Trump said, referring to the 90-day review Secretary of State Rex Tillerson initiated Tuesday. ´I’m all for agreements, but that was a bad one, as bad as I’ve ever seen negotiated,´ the billionaire, and former businessman, said during a White House press conference. ´They are not living up to the spirit of the agreement, I can tell you that,´ he added. Tillerson branded the Iran deal a failure Wednesday. The State Department official admitted in a
DONALD TRUMP has sent his condolences to France and said the deadly shooting of a police officer in the Champs Elysees in Paris looks "like another terror attack". The US President paid his respects after one police officer was killed and two others seriously injured in the deadly shooting, despite initial reports saying two police officers had been killed. He said: "Our condolences from our country to the people of France, again it is happening. "It is a terrible thing that is going on in the world today but it looks like another terrorist attack and what can you say, it never
When we study racial inequality, we tend to consider factors that affect people while they are awake. Differential access to safe neighborhoods with good schools, decent jobs and unbalanced treatment by police and the courts surely have much to do with the stubborn disparities in wealth and well-being among blacks and whites, in particular. Yet it may be just as important to consider what happens when we’re asleep. Race shapes our sleep, a relationship that has surprising roots deep in our national past. African Americans suffer from a “sleep gap”: Fewer black people are able to sleep for the recommended
The Obamas have been taking a much-deserved break from politics since moving out of the White House. But next week, it´s back to reality. President Barack Obama will be in Chicago on Monday to discuss community organization and civic engagement. As we all know, the Obamas have impeccable taste in food, so it wouldn´t be surprising to see the former president surveying the Chicago dining scene when he returns stateside. Will he visit the renowned Alinea? Or return to an old Obama favorite, Spiaggia? Last September, my husband and I had a chance run-in with Barack and Michelle, who were in New York City for their last visit as
A review of Donald Trump´s business career would lead one to say that he has always over-promised and under-delivered. Whether his long list of bankruptcies in the ever-profitable casino business, the failures of his "university,´ steak, vodka or clothing lines, there has been a history of putting himself first, while ignoring the needs of his constituents. We may be seeing that play out in his approach to government, as well. As in business, Trump has a constituency of one … himself … just ask his stock and bond investors, his suppliers, contractors, laborers, or even his customers. Unlike Trump, they rarely,
American Airlines suspended a flight attendant after an altercation on Friday in which the attendant took a stroller from a woman traveling with two young children and then argued with other passengers. The episode was captured, in part, on video. The encounter, at San Francisco International Airport, occurred while the woman was boarding a Texas-bound flight. The attendant, whose name was not released by the airline, grabbed the stroller from the woman, who was carrying 15-month-old twins, a passenger who was nearby said.
Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job. The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out. The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers
WASHINGTON — The day before he upended the 2016 election, James B. Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, summoned agents and lawyers to his conference room. They had been debating all day, and it was time for a decision. Mr. Comey’s plan was to tell Congress that the F.B.I. had received new evidence and was reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton, the presidential front-runner. The move would violate the policies of an agency that does not reveal its investigations or do anything that may influence an election. But Mr. Comey had declared the case closed, and he believed
Fox News may have sent former CEO Roger Ailes packing in July of last year, but that has not slowed down the female employees at the network who have come forward alleging that they were sexually harassed by the disgraced executive. Another woman´s name was added to that list on Sunday, when CNN host Alisyn Camerota decided to break her silence and speak out, claiming that she too was one of Ailes´ victims. ´Yes, Roger Ailes did sexually harass me,´ Camerota announced during an appearance in ´Reliable Sources.´ Camerota, 50, worked at Fox News for 16 years before moving over
Fox News host Sean Hannity has been forced to deny he sexually harassed a former contributor. Debbie Schlussel said the prime time anchor invited her back to his hotel in Detroit after a debate. After she turned down his advances, she claims she wasn´t invited back on his show. In an interview with Tulsa, Oklahoma-based radio host Pat Campbell, she said: ´This kind of stuff is all over the place at Fox News and anything that has to do with Sean Hannity.´ Her comments came just two days after Bill O´Reilly was fired from Fox News over similar allegations. Hannity
The September 2016 article in Politico championing Hillary Clinton’s use of "data analytics" now looks—how shall we put it?—rather premature. Politico swooned that computer algorithms "underlie nearly all of the Clinton campaign´s most important strategic decisions." Computer guru Elan Kriegel had crunched the numbers for campaign manager Robby Mook, allowing Team Clinton to precisely target her potential voters and thus not waste one dime on appealing to the deplorables. "Clintonites saw it as their secret weapon in building an insurmountable delegate lead over Bernie Sanders," Politico reported. And come the general election the Clintonistas were downright giddy about the edge Big Data
This week’s edition of Time Magazine named former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to its list of the 100 Most Influential People. The list breaks down the chosen 100 into five categories: Pioneers, Artists, Leaders, Titans, and Icons. Kaepernick appears in the Icons group. In the Time Magazine profile, former SF 49ers Coach Jim Harbaugh praised the controversial quarterback’s protest last year of the Star Spangled Banner, “when he boldly and courageously confronted perceived inequalities in our social-justice system by refusing to stand for the national anthem.” Harbaugh made no mention of Kaepernick’s penchant for wearing socks denigrating law
Former President Barack Obama may not be making an endorsement in France´s upcoming presidential election, but his former deputy national security adviser is warning that a win for right-wing leader Marine Le Pen would be "devastating." "A Le Pen victory would be devastating to any mainstream definition of US interests and values since WWII," Ben Rhodes said in a tweet Saturday. (Tweet) Rhodes´ warning is quite a bit more drastic than the measured statement former President Barack Obama´s spokesman put out last week about his conversation with another French candidate, Emmanuel Macron. While Obama did not endorse Macron, spokesman Kevin
What could possibly motivate Maxine Waters to claim twice that she never called for Donald Trump´s impeachment when the video evidence is so compelling? It is one thing for conservative websites to call her out, but even MSNBC, the broadcast leader in Trump-hatred, is taking notice of the absolute falsity of her claim. Yesterday, in an on-air discussion among Hallie Jackson, Craig Melvin, and Mark Murray, the California congresswoman was explicitly called out for her denial of reality: JACKSON: "... pretty strong words from somebody else on the other side of the aisle. Maxine Waters, right? The congresswoman [indecipherable] during that interview
