Hollywood actress Meryl Streep is continuing her streak of anti-Trump rhetoric by criticizing First Lady Melania Trump and White House adviser Ivanka Trump for their ‘silence’ on sexual harassment cases.
Streep has been reveling in the release of her latest movie, The Post, which subtly jabs at the Trump administration, despite its topic being focused on The Pentagon Papers. Her actions seem to indicate she doesn’t intend to slow down the anti-Trump agenda, as she is now calling out the female Trumps to stand up and speak out.
The Washington Examiner reports the following:
“Award-winning actress Meryl Streep took a shot at first lady Melania Trump and White House adviser Ivanka Trump for their “silence” on sexual harassment.
Hollywood and Washington have been grappling with sexual misconduct allegations in recent months, and numerous well-known men in the media, politics, and the entertainment industry have been forced to resign or were fired as accusations surface.
In an interview with the New York Times published Wednesday, Streep was asked about her own silence on the allegations against film producer Harvey Weinstein.
“I don’t want to hear about the silence of me. I want to hear about the silence of Melania Trump. I want to hear from her. She has so much that’s valuable to say. And so does Ivanka. I want her to speak now,” Streep responded.”
