Meryl Streep’s speech in the Golden Globe Awards about Trump apparently pissed off Mike Huckabee.
So on Monday Huckabee (former Arkansas governor) wrote on his Facebook page, “As expected, last night’s Golden Globe Awards gave Hollywood stars a chance to cry over the end of the Obama era and posture self-righteously about Donald Trump.”
“But the one who’s getting the most press is Meryl Streep … Meryl Streep is a gifted actress, possibly the best of her generation, but let’s get real: a guardian of the truth she is not.”
Meryl Streep won the Cecil B. DeMille Award. Here acceptance speech was very critical towards Donald Trump. Also she tried to make jokes about Serge Kovaleski the disabled New York Times reporter, pointing on him by using physical gestures. But even though she didn’t use words or names everyone realized whom she was talking about.
Streep was staring in the movies: “The Devil Wears Prada”, “Mamma Mia”, Sophie’s Choice” and Postcards from the Edge”.
She told her audience that over the years she had seen “many, many powerful performances. But there was one that stunned me. It sank its hooks in my heart.”
She also said, “Not because it was good; there was nothing good about it. But it was effective and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh, and show their teeth. It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter.”
Streep also added that,”Someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back. It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can’t get it out of my head, because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life.
“And this instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, because it kinda gives permission for other people to do the same thing. Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others we all lose. O.K., go on with it.”
But Huckabee got angry about her speech, so he said, “couldn’t even get through her speech last night without repeating ‘fake news.’ … Trump was not mocking the reporter’s disability but just using a gesture he uses all the time to indicate anyone who’s flummoxed about something.”
Mike Huckabee claimed that in the past Meryl also sauntered into the public policy with her attack for the use of the chemical Alar on apples. He stated that, “an overblown scare that bankrupted a lot of mom-and-pop apple farmers.”
So he said, “She helped stir up a hysterical fear of cancer caused by Alar, even though, as the American Council on Science and Health reported, to get a dose of Alar equivalent to what was fed the mice in the study, a human would have to drink 19,000 quarts of apple juice every day for life. Cancer would be the least of your worries, since you’d drown in apple juice on day one.”
