The fallout from the Meryl Streep anti-Trump Golden Globe speech continues. In case you hadn’t head, Meryl Streep, one of Hollywood’s more respected actresses, went off on Donald Trump during a speech where she was receiving a lifetime achievement award. In typical liberal fashion, her speech was one sided and only showed her delusional side of the story.
Streep’s biggest gripe during the whole speech, the crux of her entire argument, was that Trump allegedly made fun of a disabled reporter.
This claim has been rebuked, disproved, and shown to be completely false on many occasions, but since Streep lives in her Hollywood, echo chamber, liberal bubble, she did not take the time to research that Trump has made that similar physical and verbal action many times, to many different audiences, about many different people, including himself.
Now, what’s been uncovered is a bit more damaging than a simple gesture. Here’s the time she stood tall with a standing ovation for a convicted pedophile and rapist, Roman Polanski.

Polanski was charged and pleaded guilty in 1977 to having sex with an underage girl, only to flee the country before he could be sentenced for his terrible crime, according to ABC News.
Polanski had been accused by his victim, then-13-year-old Samantha Geimer, of using champagne and a Quaalude to coerce her into engaging in various sexual acts.
Polanski agreed to a deal ahead of the trial and pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful sexual intercourse and served 42 days in a California jail. However, upon learning that he was likely to be sentenced to more time in a state prison, which he had not expected, he fled the country and moved to France in 1978.
And there was Streep, applauding his bravery and work, not giving two hot shits about his criminal past. What a hypocritical idiot.
Hollywood needs to leave politics to the big boys. As we found out yesterday, America really doesn’t care what they think anymore. They are officially powerless. Shut up and go back to your bubble and leave the thinking for the adults.
