Streep & Hollywood Rip Into Trump at Golden Globes

At the 74th annual Golden Globes, many liberals used the spotlight to bash President-elect Donald Trump.

Host Jimmy Fallon started off the night with jokes centered on the president-elect.

Fallon called the Golden Globes “one of the few places left where America still honors the popular vote” and even compared Trump to King Joffrey, a person from “Game of Thrones” who is seen as belligerent and cruel.

While accepting the award for best supporting actor in a limited series or TV film for The Night Manager, Hugh Laurie took a dig at Trump, saying there may not be a 75th annual Golden Globes ceremony.

“I don’t mean to be gloomy, but it has the words ‘Hollywood,’ ‘foreign,’ and ‘press’ in the title,” Laurie said.

The most talked about speech from the ceremony was Meryl Streep’s.

In her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award, Streep said the following:

“There was one performance this year that stunned me. It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good, there was nothing good about it, but it was effective and it did its job.

“It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter. Someone he outranked in privilege, power, and the capacity to fight back.”

Streep then called on the press to hold Trump accountable and “call him on the carpet for every outrage,” and even asked audience members to support the nonprofit Committee to Protect Journalists “because we’re going to need them going forward and they’re going to need us to safeguard the truth.”

Trump took to Twitter to bash Streep for her speech, and denied ever mocking a disabled reporter:
