Meryl wins also this round!
This is one of my favorite actresses. I grew up with Meryl around.
We are almost the same age.
She’s an American icon.
And she’s standing up for us!
She’s standing up for American values and as an ally of the LGBT community.
Thank you, Meryl.
Meryl Streep Responds to Drumpf Calling Her “Over-rated”
Meryl Streep likes to load her dishwasher. She likes to sit quietly and read. She likes to garden. Most of all, as she told the audience at the Human Rights Campaign Greater New York Gala on Saturday night, February 11, she likes to “stay the fuck home.”
But the actress, who, along with late-night host Seth Meyers, was the recipient of the HRC Ally for Equality Award, left the house to stand in support of her LGBTQ friends in the Drumpf era.
She said all of this during her speech without even mentioning the president’s name.
The legendary actress, who previously delivered a fiery take-down of Drumpf at the Golden Globes (also without saying his name), told attendees at the HRC gala that in the end, the current administration could serve as a valuable wake-up call.
“If we live through this precarious moment . . . if his catastrophic instinct to retaliate doesn’t lead us to nuclear winter, we have much to thank this president for, because he will have woken us up to how fragile freedom really is,”
she said to the crowd gathered at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City.
Streep experienced Drumpf’s famously thin skin after her Globes oration in January when he tweeted that the actress was “over-rated.”
The actress and honoree also had a response for Drumpf’s claim.
“Yes, I am the most overrated, over-decorated, and currently, over-berated actress . . . of my generation,” she joked.
“But that is why you invited me here! Right?”
“As it appears in … full read/full credit”
