Meryl Streep spoke last night at the Golden Globe awards, where she received a lifetime achievement award. She spoke about kindness, decency, compassion. She spoke about the role of the artist and the importance of the arts. She spoke about immigrants and the power of diversity. She urged everyone to support a free press, specifically the Committee to Protect Journalists. She called out an unnamed powerful person who mocked and mimicked a disabled reporter. All in a few minutes.

 

Please watch.

 

Donald Trump responded with a tweet, saying that Streep is “overrated” and that she “doesn’t know me but attacked me.”

 

So one cannot attack Trump’s words or actions unless you “know” him. Hmmm.
