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 Republican lawmakers from South Carolina could not get a word in from the start. Almost every answer U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford and Sen. Tim Scott gave Saturday was deemed unacceptable to the more than 200 people who made their dissent known with boos, interruptions and by holding pieces of paper with the word "disagree" printed on them. "Agree" was printed on the other side, but few people turned that face over. The first question set the tone as Scott and Sanford repeatedly found themselves on the defensive on their home turf. "I don´t mean to sound flippant," Ernest Fava began, before referencing President
Five people were killed, including three Iraqi soldiers, in two suicide bombings on Sunday that hit districts recently retaken from Islamic State in eastern Mosul, security sources said. The first attack targeted an army checkpoint, killing three soldiers, and the second a gathering of civilians in the commercial district known as "My Fair Lady," killing two. A dozen people were also wounded in the two attacks carried out by men wearing explosive vests, the sources said, contacted from Erbil, the Kurdish region´s capital east of Mosul. The bombers are suspected by the security sources to have crossed into eastern Mosul from the western
Nineveh (IraqiNews.com) Al-Hashd al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization Units) began Sunday an invasion of western Mosul areas coincidentally with Iraqi government forces which launched a new stage of offensives against Islamic State militants in that region. The Defense Ministry’s War Media Cell said the PMUs 26th Brigade embarked on an offensive targeting western Mosul areas starting from Irbeed region, bringing down IS defenses there. Al-Hashd’s media service, meanwhile, said the forces advanced towards the liberation of Tal Kaisoum, an area on the road between central Mosul and the strategic town of Tal Afar. Al-Hashd al-Shaabi, an alliance of volunteer Shia militias, has
ISLAMIC State faces another brutal showdown after Iraq’s prime minister announced the nations military will launch an offensive to retake western Mosul for the twisted terror cult. ISIS snatched the city of Mosul from Iraqi forces in 2014 but have come under increased pressure since October last year. Haider al-Abadi said: “The prime minister announced the launch of liberation operations on the western side of Mosul.” Iraqi forces reclaimed the eastern part of the city last month after a series of brutal battles.

SPECIAL passport arrangements between the UK and Commonwealth countries where the Queen is head of state have been discussed “at the highest level”. Of the 52 Commonwealth countries, 16, including the UK, are in the Commonwealth Realm – those where the Queen is the sovereign. These include Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the Bahamas. Now sources at the highest level of the Commonwealth say new passport arrangements for the realms were very much “back on the table” post-Brexit. They could ultimately include fast-track visas and easier entry to the UK, with reciprocal rights for Britons. The insider said: “The will
During a campaign-style rally on Saturday, Donald Trump used a quote from one of the nation´s Founding Fathers out of context to vindicate his war against the media. At the ´Make America Great Again´ rally in Melbourne, Florida which mirrored the rhetoric throughout his campaign tour, Trump said he hoped to speak ´without the filter of fake news´ - whom he declared the ´enemy of America´ this week. The President then referenced previous American leaders who combated the media during their time in the White House. He said: ´Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, and Abraham Lincoln: many of our greatest Presidents fought with the
President Donald Trump gave Boeing South Carolina an unprecedented advertising boost Friday, saying "God Bless Boeing" as he promoted the company´s work force in his first visit to the Palmetto State in a year. Speaking to more than 5,000 employees, guests and VIPs, the president left behind the combative theatrics of Washington to press his message of American jobs first. "Just like you built this incredible airplane behind me, we´re going to rebuild this country and ensure that every forgotten community has a bright future," Trump said as Boeing marked the official roll out for its new 787-10 Dreamliner passenger jet. "Very shortly
ISLAMIC State jihadis slaughtered hundreds of rival militants, in a desperate bid to re-establish their authority in Syria. According to reports, the terrorists captured at least 150 fighters from Al Qaeda and a group aligned with the Free Syrian Army in the Idlib and Hama provinces. Abdul Hakim al-Rahmon, a Jaish al-Nasr commander from the group aligned with the FSA, said 160 of the opposition fighters killed were affiliated with the FSA and 43 were from Al Qaeda. After the militants were captured by ISIS fighters, they were imprisoned for six days. Al-Rahmon reportedly said, the jihadi militants suddenly decided to “liquidate”
President Donald Trump raised his criticism of political journalists from ´hot´ to ´beast mode´ on Friday, writing on Twitter that five news outlets are ´the enemy of the American People.´ Initially his naughty-list was just three organizations he named on Twitter: CNN, NBC News and The New York Times. The outlets are three of Trump´s favorite targets. But the president deleted his tweet and sent a new version 16 minutes later, adding CBS News and ABC News for good measure. To make room, he deleted his stinging verdict: ´SICK!´ Trump has taken to blasting ´fake news´ – a term he first slapped on CNN
A CALMER Donald Trump took to the podium at a Boeing factory in South Carolina to talk about how he wants to put American manufacturing first just weeks after having a spat with the airline´s CEO. The US President talked about “bringing jobs back home to the US” and making things with “American hands” at the plant in Charleston. But he appeared to backpeddle on his attitude towards Boeing after having a public spat with the airline last month over the cost of a replacement for Air Force One. He had bartered Boeing down to reduce the cost
12:49: Boeing is stalling for time while Trump meets with company VIPs by reshowing airplane videos to audience. 12:48: Small counter protest in support of Donald Trump is also at the North Charleston Coliseum. So far a few people have shown up for that. 12:36: Dignitaries have been seated and the event at Boeing is about to begin. 12:29: Everyone waits for President Donald Trump including: Lt. Gov. Kevin Bryant seated next to Jean Leatherman, her husband Sen. Pro Tem Sen. Hugh Leatherman and House Speaker Jay Lucas, according to reports. The national anthem has been played. 12:12: Schuyler Kropf is reporting that United
Forgotten images of a female pilot who flew spitfires during the Second World War have been released two weeks after she celebrated turning 100. Mary Ellis was one of the ´Ata-girls´, the select gang of female pilots who flew Britain´s fighters during the war. Originally from Oxfordshire, she had her first flying lesson in 1938 and flew for pleasure until 1941 when she heard a BBC radio appeal for women pilots to join the auxiliary service and so release male pilots for combat duty. A new book titled A Spitfire Girl recounts the First Officer´s incredible journey at a time when her
The Barack Obama Presidential Center in Chicago could require a $1.5 billion endowment, its architects say, three times what was raised for the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas. Husband-and-wife architectural team Tod Williams and Billie Tsien noted that it will be difficult to raise such a huge sum because Obama scrupulously declined to do much fund-raising while he was still in office. The Obama Center is due to be so expensive because it will require the construction of both a presidential library and a museum about the lives of Barack and Michelle Obama. And federal requirements now stipulate that former
About 15 people huddled in a luxury apartment building, munching on danishes as they plotted out their plan to have California secede from the United States. "I pledge allegiance, to the flag, of an independent California," Geoff Lewis said as he stood in a glass-walled conference room adorned with California´s grizzly-bear flag and a sign reading "California is a nation, not a state." Sweaty onlookers from the gym across the hall peered in curiously. Bolstered by the election of President Donald Trump, the group, Yes California, is collecting the 585,407 signatures necessary to place a secessionist question on the 2018
Senator John McCain has emerged as one of the leading Republican voices pushing back against President Trump, and he had some tough words in response to Trump’s tweet calling the media the “enemy” of the American people. In a preview of his Meet the Press interview tomorrow, McCain told Chuck Todd that the free press is very important to American democracy. “I hate the press. I hate you especially,” he joked. “But the fact is, we need you. We need a free press.” Without a free and adversarial press, McCain said, Americans would lose their liberties and “that’s how dictators
Leftists on social media tore into First Lady Melania Trump, mocking her accent and religion and branding her everything from a hostage to a whore – all for the secular offense of reciting “The Lord’s Prayer.” Melania Trump began President Trump’s rally Saturday in Florida by delivering the prayer, which Christians – many of whom recite the prayer in church each week – believe was first said by Jesus Christ. The crowd at Orlando-Melbourne Airport received the prayer enthusiastically. Left-leaning social media users were a different story, however.
WASHINGTON — Donald Trump is stuck in his own skull. He’s unreachable.“He lives inside his head, where he runs the same continuous loop of conflict with people he turns into enemies for the purposes of his psychodrama,” says Trump biographer Michael D’Antonio. Because Trump holds Thor’s hammer, with its notably short handle, we must keep trying to figure out his strange, perverse, aggrieved style of reasoning. So we’re stuck in Trump’s head with him.It’s a very cluttered place to be, a fine-tuned machine spewing a torrent of chaos, cruelty, confusion, farce and transfixing craziness. Of course, this is merely the observation of
A former State Department IT technician who set up Hillary Clinton´s private email server in her home may face criminal charges for avoiding multiple subpoenas to testify on Clinton´s email server. Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R., Utah), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, sent a letter on Thursday to Attorney General Jeff Session asking that Bryan Pagliano be charged for ignoring multiple subpoenas requesting that he testify before the Oversight Committee. Pagliano was responsible for managing Clinton´s private server and also served as a senior adviser to the former secretary of state.
Senior White House officials and members of the National Security Council are pushing former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton as a replacement for ousted national security adviser Michael Flynn, according to multiple sources in and out of the White House who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon. Among Bolton´s most vocal supporters are senior administration officials loyal to Flynn and who are upset at the general´s firing. Multiple sources described an effort by these Flynn loyalists to ensure that Bolton is selected as his replacement. The selection of Bolton as the next national security adviser would empower Flynn´s allies still in the
President Trump made a comment during his rally on Saturday about Sweden, and something he noted on Friday, the evening prior. President Trump was talking about the “refugee crisis” and his strict immigration proposals called “extreme vetting”. “We’ve got to keep our country safe,” he said. “You look at what’s happening in Germany. You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible. You look at what’s happening in Brussels. You look at what’s happening all over the world. Take a look
Anti-Trump activists have seized on Monday’s federal holiday to organize “Not My Presidents Day” rallies in cities around the country. Protest leaders say they expect thousands to take to the streets in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and as many as two dozen other communities in the latest round of demonstrations to oppose the policies of President Donald Trump. Some 13,000 Facebook users, for instance, say they plan to join a noon protest Monday near Manhattan’s Central Park. (Snip) “We do not accept Donald Trump as our president because he does not represent us,” she said, citing his policies on abortion
An Obama-tied activist group training tens of thousands of agitators to protest President Trump’s policies plans to hit Republican lawmakers supporting those policies even harder this week, when they return home for the congressional recess and hold town hall meetings and other functions. Organizing for Action, a group founded by Obama and featured prominently on his new post-presidency website, is distributing a training manual to anti-Trump activists that advises them to bully GOP lawmakers into backing off support for repealing ObamaCare, curbing immigration from high-risk Islamic nations, and building a border wall. In a new Facebook post, OFA calls on
Arizona Sen. John McCain said President Trump is wrong to tweet the press is an “enemy of the American people” — a label a “dictator” might use. “If you want to preserve democracy as we know it, you have to have a free and at many times adversarial press,” McCain told Meet The Press’s Chuck Todd in an interview airing Sunday. NBC released excerpts Saturday. “Without it I’m afraid we would lose so much of our individual liberties over time. That’s how dictators get started.” Todd asked McCain, “That’s how dictators get started — with tweets like that?” referring to
ABC’s Jon Karl, filling in for George Stephanopoulos on This Week today, ended the program this morning with a few thoughts on President Trump‘s tweet calling the media the “enemy.” He first provided important context by saying there’s “nothing new” about presidents attacking the press, recalling what Thomas Jefferson and Teddy Roosevelt said about reporters while they were in office. As for Trump himself, Karl said that many years ago, the New York mogul was “nothing but media-friendly” and during the campaign “he was the most accessible major candidate.” But he ended with this serious note about the president’s media
