HBO Star Targets Trump in SAG Awards Speech

On Sunday night at the Screen Actors Guild award ceremony, ‘Seinfeld’ star Julia Louis-Dreyfus ridiculed President Trump, and his executive order to ban refugees, in an emotionally-charged speech.

While accepting an award for her role in HBO’s popular show ‘Veep,’ Louis-Dreyfus detailed her life as a child of an immigrant.

Portions of her full speech, which was met with thunderous applause, can be read below:

“Whether the Russians did or did not hack the voting of tonight’s SAG Awards, I look out on the million or probably even a million and a half people in this room and I say, this award is legitimate and I won. I am the winner. The winner is me. Landslide…

“Our guilds are unions of storytellers who have always welcomed those from other nations and of varying beliefs who wish to share their creativity with America. We are grateful for them. We stand with them. And we will fight for them…

“My father fled religious persecution in Nazi-occupied France. I’m an American patriot, and I love this country. Because I love this country, I am horrified by its blemishes, and this immigrant ban is a blemish and it’s un-American.”
