At the recent Golden Globe awards, Meryl Streep took the stage to accept her award and instead decided to rant about Trump.

"We belong to the most vilified part of the community. Think about it, Hollywood, foreigners and the press." She said. She went on to name many of the nominees and their ancestry. "Dave Patel was born in Kenya and raised in India. Ryan Gasoline like every other nice guy was born in Canada. Emy Adams were born in Italy." She eventually builds this history and ancestry lesson to her point of the night. "Hollywood is crawling with foreigners and outsiders, and if we kick them out, we will have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which aren't even arts."

She pointed out that one performance of the year caught her attention and it was not for bringing right, and it was when Trump imitated a disabled reporter. Who shed Trump knew could into fight back. Streep said that such a gesture would give permission to his followers to do the same.

The Globe winner said that disrespect invites disrespect and that was what led to even more disrespect from Trump supports.

She I insisted that when the powerful used their power to bully the public everyone loses.
To reports that Trump may try and amend laws to be able to sue the press, Streep insisted that the country needs an independent press freedom of fair and bullying to inform the crowds
